We Hate Movies

Founded in New York City, the We Hate Movies podcast uses bad movies, ranging from the tasteless to the tedious, as a jumping-off point for long-form conversations that include personal anecdotes, detailed trivia, and extensive criticisms. Since 2010, the podcast has quickly become a cult sensation amongst the bad-movie podcast crowd, and has been praised in The AV Club, Splitsider, and numerous other online publications. Hosted by comedians Andrew Jupin, Stephen Sajdak, Eric Szyszka, and Chris Cabin, We Hate Movies brings their own unique twist to the time-honored tradition of ragging on movies most people forget about.

For nearly a decade, We Hate Movies has been ripping on the worst movies to hit the big screen, including white-guy-karate pictures, modern-day superhero epics, or misbegotten 90s thrillers. On their first full tour of 2019, hosts Andrew Jupin, Stephen Sajdak, Chris Cabin, and Eric Szyszka bring their antic and uproarious takes on bad movies to the stage once again. The boys will be on hand to break down everything from incomprehensible accents and cheap CGI to dated references and one liners that make you yearn for the sweet embrace of the grave. There might also be talk of Secundus and cold Burger King. Film to be announced.

Small Town Murder

Comedians James Pietragallo and Jimmie Whisman are taking their hit podcast, Small Town Murder, back on the road!

Shut up, and give me murder!!

Nicole Byer

Rated R. Really

Nicole is one of the most versatile and recognizable voices in the comedy landscape today. She currently stars as host of Netflix’s Emmy-nominated competition baking series NAILED IT, which was just renewed for a third season. She can also be seen as producer and star of the scripted comedy series LOOSELY EXACTLY NICOLE, which debuted its first season on MTV and aired its second on Facebook Watch. The show features her unique brand of confidence and irreverence as she demonstrates the hilarious missteps of what it means to be out on your own for the first time. Byer also appears in the new Netflix animated series TUCA & BERTIE alongside Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong and continues to host her popular weekly podcast WHY WON’T YOU DATE ME.

Byer was an early standout and fan favorite on MTV’s hit series Girl Code, a strong and smart female-driven comedy series that brings viewers a hilarious how-to manual full of over-the-top tips to push the envelope and open the dialogue about the wonders and woes of womanhood. She is also an Upright Citizens Brigade alum who continues to cement her status as a force in standup comedy, regularly performing in cities across the country.

Previously, Byer received national attention for her Above Average web series Pursuit of Sexiness, which she co-created and starred in alongside Sasheer Zamata.

Below the Belt is consistently in the top 5 iTunes rankings for the sports/comedy category and debuted as the 2nd largest podcast in the world. The Fighter and the Kid podcast eventually led Schaub to fulfill his childhood dream of being a stand up comic. He is now a regular at Los Angeles’s most prominent comedy clubs such as the Comedy Store, Laugh Factory, and Improv.

In 2018 Schaub traveled around the world for his “Stay in Your Lane” tour with sold out shows in Australia, London, Ireland, Canada, and all over the United States from LA to New York. He most notably sold out the Wilbur theatre in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition to his successful career in comedy Schaub is also on Bravo’s “Play by Play”, E!’s “After Party”, Showtime’s “Below the Belt”, Comedy Central’s 7th season of “This is Not Happening”, David Ayer’s upcoming film “Tax Collector”, and Joe Rogan’s Fight Companion podcast. He began his professional mixed martial arts career in 2008 as the runner up on Spike TV’s 10th season of “The Ultimate Fighter”. Schaub ultimately retired from the UFC in 2015 in order to focus on his career in comedy and entertainment.

Dusty Slay

You can take the boy out of the trailer park, but you can’t take the trailer park out of the boy… Stand-up comedian Dusty Slay grew up on Lot 8 of a mobile home neighborhood in Opelika, Alabama, and his observational comedy and eternally optimistic outlook is peppered with ironies: growing up poor, a love for both hard-core country and classic rock, a career history peppered with jobs like waiting tables and selling pesticides, and what counts as fashion-forward thinking in his world. The trucker hat, long hair and mustache, flannel shirt and oversized glasses aren’t affectations to cultivate a stage persona as the B-side of a 1970-something Bob Seger single—it’s just Slay.  

“There’s still a lot of jokes to come. I looked at everything as experience,” he says. “Let’s not get mad about it, let’s enjoy it.”

Just this year, at age 36, Slay has become the youngest comedian to ever perform at the legendary Grand Ole Opry Stage in his adopted hometown of Nashville. He’s notched three appearances in front of “my people” at the Holy Land of country music in less than six months and has also been tapped to host CMA Festival’s Forever Country Stage in June to keep fans laughing between appearances by the biggest stars in country music. 

The breakout comedian’s Comedy Central Stand-Up Featuring premieres May 16, and he is also set for a second appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon this summer. He’s also primed to appear live at Comedy Central’s Clusterfest 2019 in San Francisco, all continuing the momentum from previous sets on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Comic Standing, and Laughs on Fox; regular stints on The Bob & Tom Radio Show; and a host of live appearances across the country.

His podcast, TIMESUCK, is regularly featured in the top of the iTunes comedy charts, and was downloaded over twenty million times last year alone.  His second and newest podcast, SCARED TO DEATH, is quickly becoming just as popular.  TIMESUCK is a weekly podcast that is a slightly irreverent but consistently entertaining way for the eternal knowledge seeker to get their dose of thoroughly researched information. From Scientology to Jeffrey Dahmer to the KKK, no topic is off limits.  

Dan’s last hour special, DON’T WAKE THE BEAR, is currently available for streaming on Amazon.  He’s been a guest on multiple late night shows, from CONAN to the TONIGHT SHOW and has made numerous appearances on shows like Comedy Central’s THIS IS NOT HAPPENING and his own Comedy Central 1/2 hour special. He’s also been a guest on numerous podcasts such as Bert Kreischer’s BERTCAST, Joey Diaz’s THE CHURCH OF WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW, and THE ADAM COROLLA SHOW

When not touring or podcasting, Dan spends time with his wife, Lynze,  two kids, Kyler and Monroe, and two dogs, Penny and Ginger, in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho – the other Hollywood. 

T.J. Miller THE BEST MEDICINE TOUR: Doing it Right

At the artist’s request, we will be checking the temperatures of everyone attending these shows. Anyone with a temperature over 100 degrees F will not be permitted to attend. Thank you for your understanding

T.J. MILLER is one of the most sought after comedians in the world, certainly the northern part of the western hemisphere. He has been diligently working to make people laugh for over fifteen years, and is driven by the altruistic mission statement that life is fundamentally tragic and the best thing he can do is provide an ephemeral escapism from that tragedy by doing comedy. He has been performing his absurdist observational standup act worldwide for over 15 years, and has never gone to the bathroom in his pantaloons on stage. His act has been described as “a one man philosophy circus.”

His hour-long comedy specials T.J. MILLER: NO REAL REASON (Comedy Central) and T.J. MILLER: METICULOUSLY RIDICULOUS (HBO) are available to stream now wherever streaming content is streamed. For no reason he produced two music albums, THE EXTENDED PLAY E.P., a hip-hop/pop/folk music E.P. with 41 tracks, and the ILLEGAL ART REMIXTAPE- available now on iTunes and wherever fake music is sold.

Miller’s voice stars as Gene in the EMOJI MOVIE and Fred in Disney’s Academy Award-winning animated feature, BIG HERO 6. Miller also talks like an old drag queen after a hard night of chain smoking, and thus has voiced many characters including the character Tuffnut in the Oscar-nominated animated films HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2. He played Auggie in the first R- rated stop motion animated film HELL AND BACK with Nick Swardson and Prancer in ICE AGE: A MAMMOTH CHRISTMAS. In television, he voiced Robbie from GRAVITY FALLS, Tuffnut in How To Train Your Dragon’s DRAGONS: RIDERS OF BERK, Brad in HIGH SCHOOL USA!, Randy in F IS FOR FAMILY and a volcano in FAMILY GUY. Don’t forget about GORBURGER, a show so strange you’ll just have to google it to understand. He has had 2 short films he wrote, produced and starred in selected for Sundance- SUCCESSFUL ALCOHOLICS and I’M HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME KILLING MY PARENTS.

You may recognize his non-animated face and body from his roles in FOX’s big screen comic book adaptation of DEADPOOL, the highest grossing R-rated film of all time, 2014’s surprise indie hit TRANSFORMERS 4, Pete Holmes’ HBO comedy series CRASHING, Mike Judge’s HBO comedy series SILICON VALLEY, for which he received the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor in a

Television Comedy, Uncle Jake in THOSE WHO CAN’T, GARFUNKEL AND OATS, THE LEAGUE, HAPPY ENDINGS, appearances on KIMMEL, COLBERT and CONAN, or even THE GOODWIN GAMES which was canceled after 7 episodes (he was also on CARPOOLERS with Jerry O’Connel and that lasted 13 episodes). When CHELSEA LATELY was a show, T.J. was on that show quite a bit. A ‘regular’ some might call him. Who those people are he’ll never know.

Miller has been in over 25 major studio films- more than Fabio (and HE was in Sharknado 5: Global Swarming) including CLOVERFIELD, SHE’S OUT OF MY LEAGUE, Mike Judge’s EXTRACT, SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD, ROCK OF AGES, Jack Black’s GULLIVER’S TRAVELS, OUR IDIOT BROTHER, YOGI BEAR 3D (Ranger Jones, his greatest role to date), UNSTOPPABLE, GET HIM TO THE GREEK, SEARCH PARTY, THE GOODS: LIVE HARD, SELL HARD, and finally his good friend Jay Baruchel’s GOON: LAST OF THE ENFORCERS.

Most recently, T.J. can be seen in OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY, opposite Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston, READY PLAYER ONE directed by Steven Spielberg, & DEADPOOL 2. T.J.’s latest film UNDERWATER opposite Kristen Stewart, is a Twentieth Century Fox disaster thriller that is the perfect full circle return to his roots in Cloverfield.
