Jamali Maddix

with Umar Khan and Erik Escobar

Jamali Maddix is one of most promising and exciting acts to hit the circuit in years as seen on Taskmaster (Channel4), Frankie Boyle’s New World Order (BBC2) and his critically acclaimed series Hate Thy Neighbor for Vice.

With an assured stage presence and considered material that comes from a fresh perspective, he already has the aura of a successful comic well beyond his years. His natural confidence and charm allow him to tread gracefully across more sensitive topics leaving many of his contemporaries behind.

In his first two years of performing Jamali won the Comedy Café New Act of the Year Competition and the Chortle Student Comedy Award - all while making it look effortless.

Jamali has a plethora of gigs under his belt - he plays the Comedy Store and toured with them in the Middle East. In June 2015 he supported Jim Jefferies before a 3,500 strong Hyde Park audience. His debut hour at the Edinburgh Fringe was a total sell out and received rave reviews.

He has also done a plethora of TV shows including The John Bishop Show, Live at the Apollo and 8 out of 10 Cats.

Umar Khan

Umar is a regular performer as many of the DMV's clubs, college, and theatres and has opened for Todd Barry, Hasan Minjah, Judah Friedlander, and more.

Erik Escobar

Described as “hilariously clever” by audiences and “demented” by his fourth grade teacher, Erik Escobar had performed all over the nation headlining clubs, colleges, and theatres both independently and working with acts such as Jerry Seinfeld and WWE’s Rob Van Dam. His credits include NBC’s Last Comic Standing, BuzzFeed, Hulu, and Lucha Underground. He is currently the host of That Sarap and is a contributing writer for Chubstr. Erik resides in Los Angeles, CA with his shihtzu, Rancor.
