Rafe is a nationally touring comic and he recorded a television stand-up set last year for “Live from Zanies” on NBC's Peacock and Circle TV. His album “Young Grandpa” was recorded by 800 Pound Gorilla Records in Nashville and released on Sirius XM and all streaming platforms. Rafe’s professionalism and reputation for being both a club and crowd favorite has also landed him feature spots for top headliners like Dave Attell, Dan Soder, Kyle Kinane, Aries Spears, Rachel Feinstein, Michelle Wolf, Greg Warren, Tony Roberts, and many more.
Rafe has been invited to perform in several festivals including the Netflix is a Joke Festival, Asheville Comedy Festival, the Del Close Marathon 21 in Los Angeles, Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, as well as headlining Flyover Comedy Festival. In addition, Rafe is an accomplished sketch performer and improviser and has performed several times on the popular Improv4Humans podcast with Matt Besser.
Hailing from the Former Soviet Union but growing up in Kansas City, Tina Dybal is no stranger to the Midwest. Starting her career as a comedian in St. Louis, Tina was crowned Helium Comedy Club's "Funniest Person in Saint Louis 2018". She currently opens for Chelcie Lynn AKA Trailer Trash Tammy on her sold-out nationwide tours.
Outside of stand-up comedy, Tina is an accomplished comedic improviser. She completed training at The Improv Shop in St. Louis and has been on multiple house teams and main stage shows.
Tina is also the co-host of the Nobel Peace Prize winning podcast, Slop City. She hosts it alongside fellow comedian and best friend, Libbie Higgins. The comedy/improv podcast has garnered a cult following since its creation. It is definitely NSFW. You can find "Slop City" wherever you watch your podcasts, although Libbie and Tina recommend watching on YouTube.
Mychael started working at the World Famous Hollywood Improv Comedy Club. The Improv was a perfect training camp to learn the Entertainment Business & build contacts. While working at the Hollywood Improv & hosting weekly shows, Myke was approached by TMZ. Shortly after working a few months with TMZ, Myke was asked to be on screen talent for TMZ’s Television Show. You can catch Mychael performing in clubs & acting in sketches with fellow Comedians/Actors in the Los Angeles & St. Louis area.
