He will be joined by KC Arora, and Leonard Ouzts (BET Comic View). Hosted by Anthony Devito (Comedy Central, The Jim Gaffigan Show).
Whether it's sharing stories about his days playing professional street basketball with modern Globetrotters or being the sensitive soft dude in relationships, Joseph Vecsey loves making audiences laugh at his expense and sharing his bizarre personal experiences.
Joseph made his television stand up debut on Gotham's AXS TV and also co-starred and punched up a web series and commercial for Optimum Cable TV called The Un-Movers. In addition to the spots being on TV, The Un-Movers have over a million views online. This is not the first time Joseph has been a part of a viral video. Joseph acted and co-produced the sketch Sneaker Heads starring star radio personality Charlamagne The God and Guy Code's Andrew Schulz where it reached a million views on Youtube and World Star. Earlier this year, Joseph also wrote, acted, edited, and directed a sketch for MTV2's popular show Uncommon Sense called Stud Walk. Joseph currently has been performing all over New York City, California, and went international hosting the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Show in Bermuda at a sold out resort. He also hosts the most popular variety stand up show in the Hamptons at Bay Street Theater where a comedian such as Donnell Rawlings from The Chappelle Show (who Joseph has opened for on numerous occasions) has graced the stage.
Joseph also keeps busy writing and acting in sketches that he produces on his Youtube channel while working on feature length screenplays. In 2015, Joseph was an on set writer for Happy Madison's upcoming movie The Do Over starring Adam Sandler and David Spade, which is due out next summer. Joseph also was a contributing writer for the hilarious "BGCP3TV” sketch show promoting the Jordan Brand starring Chris Paul and Blake Griffin.
Even with stand up, writing, and acting, Joseph still finds time to host The Call Back Podcast that has featured interviews with the world’s most successful comedians and entertainers such as Chris Rock, Aziz Ansari, Garry Shandling, Paula Patton, Tom Green, and Romany Malco just to name a few. Joseph has also written articles for the NBA's most popular publication Slam Magazine that featured brilliant comedian Colin Quinn and Power 105's Charlamagne The God.
KC Arora is from Queens, but one look at him has complete strangers asking, “But where are you REALLY from?” KC shares his hilarious insights on being first generation Indian-American while navigating the ins and outs of relationships with women and the internet. KC has been a semi finalist in NBC’s Standup for Diversity and NY’s Funniest. He has also performed at several exclusive comedy festivals including Bridgetown, Sketchfest, Laughing Skull, etc. He is a regular on the New York Comedy scene and is making his way across the nation. Which nation? America, you racist.
Comedian Leonard Ouzts, a native of South Carolina and current resident of Chesapeake, Virginia has been funny as long as he can remember. A young man that grew up in the country life of the south says that is what keeps him humble and allows him to appreciate the finer things in life. In high school, Leonard enjoyed playing football and during a road trip from the State Championships is when he knew he'd found his calling. Leonard joked everyone on the bus ride the entire time.
Leonard was mentored by great Comedians such as Micah "Bamm Bamm" White, Bodacious, Angus Black, and Alycia Cooper. "My mentors have all taught me a ton of good information and always pick up the phone when I call," says Leonard.
Leonard started doing comedy on a broader level in 2001 and began hitting the stage locally, then traveling the region. His act is primarily centered around everything from family, to current events, and the things he notices while walking down the street. Leonard has goals to entertain all across the country and take comedy by the horns. His long term aspirations include acting, major tours, and writing a book about his experiences.
