Featured Comedians:

Scott White

Scott White is recognized across the globe for his high energy and sarcastic observation. A native of Dearborn, MI, he hustled into comedy business over fifteen years ago. He has left hundreds of thousands of audience members rolling with laughter while performing to sold out crowds in the United States, Japan, Korea, Guam, Iraq, and England. His CD, “Dirty White Boy” can be heard on XM Satellite Radio.

Martin Walsh

Martin Walsh is a ‘nice guy’ that everyone can appreciate and relate to. His handcrafted humor sets him apart from the rest. Martin’s comedy is heavily influenced by Rock N Roll, his menagerie of pets. Martin’s comedy has been described as ‘sneaky’, ‘beer through the nose laughter’.

Originally from Houston, Texas, as a kid Martin entertained friends and family with jokes and voices. “I could see the ability to make someone laugh was a gift, and I love to use it!” After excelling in trade school and then later working in construction and retail for years, the only next step would be stand up comedy. After studying with a writing group Martin hit the stage running. He quickly developed a funny sense of humor that translated well to all audiences.

Robin Weinburgh

Robin was born in Decatur, Georgia around 2:30 p.m, December 31st. However, he didn’t stick around long, living in Florida, Georgia, and California before finally settling down in Texas. His earliest attempts at humor consisted mostly of short slice-of-life essays published in minor magazines and college literary journals. Robin turned to stand-up comedy in mid-2000.

Eight months later, he had his first paying gig: opening for Louis C.K. at the famed Houston Laff Stop. In 2001, he won Houston’s Funniest Person Contest. Since then, he’s traveled the country with his own brand of personal, original comedy that is a step sideways from traditional stand-up. In his travels, he’s performed alongside personal favorites such as Jake Johannson, Patton Oswalt, and Jim Gaffigan. The Austin Chronicle describes him ‘America’s Funniest Geek’, but he thinks The Austin American-Statesman described him best, ‘Come for the sci-fi jokes, but stay for the hilarious takes on an ever-expanding range of topics, including some very original blue material.

Britt Vasicek

Britt Vasicek is one of the freshest faces in Houston comedy. In just a few short months she has become a local favorite with her cheeky attitude and fearless content. In addition to performing stand-up, she works as the PR and Marketing Manger for BETA Theater, a fun comedy and improv venue, to build up the entertainment in Houston.
