Tim Meadows

On Sale 4/14/22

One of the longest-running cast members in the 37-year history of Saturday Night Live, versatile comedian Tim Meadows crafted some of the series’ most memorable characters during his 10 years on the popular late night show. Such characters included Leon Phelps, The Ladies’ Man and Lionel Osbourne, host of the fictional public affairs show, Perspectives, as well as uncanny impressions of OJ Simpson, Ike Turner and Sammy Davis Jr. Meadows also played school principal in the hit comedy Mean Girls and recently co-starred with Adam Sandler and Chris Rock in the blockbuster comedy Grown Ups.

Born in Highland Park, Mich., and raised in Detroit, Meadows studied television and radio broadcasting at Wayne State University before performing improvisational comedy at the Soup Kitchen Saloon. In 1985, Meadows relocated to Chicago, where he first joined Improv-Olympic, and then the legendary comedy troupe Second City. During his three-years at Second City, he wrote and starred in productions of The Gods Must Be Lazy, with Chris Farley; It Was Thirty Years Ago Today; and Flag Smoking Permitted in Lobby Only, gaining a loyal following with his sharp comedic talent. In 1991, Meadows achieved the dreams of comics nationwide when producer Lorne Michaels asked him to join SNL as a featured player. Nominated for an Emmy as part of the show’s writing team that same month, he later made the transition to cast member status two years afterward.

Several years after appearing in a string of films based on Saturday Night Live sketches, including Coneheads and Wayne’s World 2, Meadows was offered his own chance at features. The 2000 release of Paramount’s The Ladies Man gave the eponymous hero Leon Phelps the opportunity to bring his Courvoisier-drinking romantic adviser to the big screen. That same year, he left SNL to join NBC’s prime-time line-up as a regular cast member on The Michael Richards Show, and in 2002, he joined the cast of the NBC sitcom Leap of Faith.

Meadows continues to appear in feature films, and is currently in production to reprise his role of Malcom in the SNL alumni ensemble Grown Ups 2. Meadows also co-starred in the Sony Pictures comedy Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story with John C. Reilly. Other films include Jack and Jill, Benchwarmers, Semi-Pro with Will Farrell and Aliens in the Attic with Kevin Nealon and Ashley Tisdale. He was series regular on The Bill Engvall Show and Glory Daze on TBS and is a regular correspondent on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS and The Colbert Report on Comedy Central. Some of his other television credits include The Office, The New Adventures of The Old Christine and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Tim also lends his voice to animated hit comedies, The Life & Times of Tim and Bob’s Burgers.

Christina P

Christina P. is a Stand-up Comedian, Podcaster and Mother of two young, savage boys. Her one hour stand-up special, Christina P: Mother Inferior, premiered October 10th 2017 on Netflix to rave reviews with The Interrobang calling it “intelligent, thought-provoking and not to be missed.” Filmed at The Showbox in Seattle, Christina discusses the realities of motherhood, getting older and her own childhood. Her second half hour special is featured on “The Degenerates”, shot in Las Vegas in 2018 and streaming on Netflix as well. 

Christina P’s hugely successful podcast Your Mom’s House which she hosts with her husband, comedian Tom Segura, is a top-rated comedy podcast on iTunes. Launched in October of 2010, the podcast has acquired cult-like status and continues to raise low and loose jeans worldwide. If you enjoy 7th grade humor, you’ll love Your Mom’s House. She also hosts the popular podcast “Where My Mom’s at?” where she discusses all things mom. 

She and her husband Tom currently reside in Austin, Texas with their two sons. When Christina isn’t curating disturbing Tik Tok’s, she spends most of her time raising children. She has an intense love of dogs and believes anyone who doesn’t share this love is emotionally deficient. 

Christina’s taste in music hasn’t evolved much since 1993. One of the happiest days of her life was when she met Kim Deal of the Pixies. She also routes her touring schedule around the Goth band Bauhaus so she can see them live whenever possible. 

RYAN NIEMILLER

Ryan Niemiller 

You may know Ryan Niemiller as the disarmingly handsome comedian and 3rd place finalist from America’s Got Talent Season 14. Despite being born with a disability in both arms, Ryan, the self-proclaimed “Cripple Threat of Comedy”, shares his views of the world from the perspective of the handicapped (and very handsome). 

Ryan began his comedy career in Los Angeles, California, and hasn’t looked back since. He’s a favorite performer in clubs and colleges across the country. His comedy covers topics such as dating, trying to find employment and attempting to find acceptance in a world not designed for him. 

With his quick wit, good looks, great timing, and a gimmick that only he can exploit, Ryan hopes to prove to the comedy world that he may be unarmed, but he is dangerous. And handsome – in case you missed it the first three times.
