Sammy Obeid:
 
Lebanese-Palestinian-Syrian-Italian-American, born in Oakland, California, Sammy Obeid (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) is best known for his 1,001 day streak of consecutive comedy performances. It began on December 26th, 2010, and concluded on September 21st, 2013– four days after an appearance on TBS’s Conan. Breaking the old world record on Day 731, Sammy set the new one at 1,001 Arabian Nights of Comedy.

Over the course of the streak, he appeared on NBC’s America’s Got Talent and advanced to the Las Vegas round, and became the first comedian to perform on The Food Network in Throwdown with Bobby Flay. Splitsider conducted an extensive interview with him entering the home stretch. LA Weekly praised Sammy’s “sheer force of will” in performance and lifestyle, and LA Mag recommended his showhighly. He was profiled in TIME Magazine, followed soon after by an article in the New York Times. Published on his final day, it describes his material as “full of wordplay” and “clever misdirection.”

Chunks of his streak were spent as youngest member of both the CoExist Comedyand Axis of Evil: New Generation national tours. Capping the streak, his debut album, Get Funny or Die Trying, was named a Best Comedy Album of 2013 by iTunes.

Sammy has founded his own comedy enterprise, KO Comedy, and enjoys giving unsolicited advice on his blog.

A veteran of the stage and screen, Selene cut her teeth performing in clubs and art venues and quickly became a darling of Hollywood’s underground scene. An original member of the Velvet Hammer Burlesque, Luna toured internationally and was a featured dancer in the undisputed Queen of Burlesque, Dita Von Teese’s burlesque spectacular for five years.  Luna is probably best known for her role in Lionsgate’s feature, My Bloody Valentine 3D, and her role as Margaret Cho‘s assistant in Vh1′s The Cho Show – a performance that landed her a nomination for MTV LOGO’s NewNowNext: Brink of Fame: Comic Award. To date, Luna has written and performed six original one-woman shows, most recently Born to Be Alive, produced by the Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center. Luna’s stand-up comedy has led her to work alongside comedy legends Roseanne Barr and Robin Williams. Luna’s most celebrated stand-up comedy credit has been opening for Margaret Cho’s national tour.  Selene Luna is the voice of Tía Rosita in Coco, Disney Pixar’s first ever All-Latino Cast, opening in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2017.  Selene Luna has carved a niche for herself and continues to break the stereotypes of little people in entertainment.
