Mike Brown

Mike Brown, aka OlmikeB, first felt the nudge toward comedy in his hometown of Norfolk, Virginia where his affection for the art form was nurtured and cultivated.

After serving in the United States Army for nine years as a soldier, and receiving numerous awards for his service and valor OlmikeB decided it was time to launch his comedy career.

Mike started his matriculation into comedy by hosting shows at various venues throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Due to his friendly and engaging personality he is immediately likable, and his unique, yet earthy and energetic approach to humor led to him opening for acts like Beth Stelling, Dino Archie and Lil Rel Howery. These experiences led to the auspicious establishment of his own production company - OMBvision, in 2011 OlmikeB went on to become a regular writer for "Da Jae Spot" and the locally produced TV show “The Tommy Taylor Show”.


Tommy Taylor Jr

Funny, smart, and chronically womanless…Tommy Taylor Jr. is a uniquely talented comedian with an equally diverse artistic repertoire. As an actor, comedian, filmmaker, and writer, Tommy is steadily paving his way towards success on stage, in front of the camera, and behind it.

Tommy is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University with multiple degrees in Computer Engineering, Public Policy, and Drama; he went on to receive an MBA from Howard University, during which he leveraged his diverse abilities.

Being a clean comedian, Taylor does not curse or get raunchy with his material. However, he still captivates audiences from all walks of life. From the rawest urban comedy clubs, to the most politically savvy mainstream rooms, Tommy uses a combination intelligence and gut-busting comedy that leaves the crowd in stitches.

Tommy’s acting experiences served as a catalyst for his own productions. Combining his love for technology and entertainment he formed Taylor Creative, LLC., a production company where he has produced critically acclaimed and award winning videos, commercials, films, and produced his original sketch comedy series “TheTommy Taylor Show” (TTS).

The TTS brings Tommy’s brand of “GOOD. CLEAN. COMEDY.” to television and the Internet. Tommy’s success has also impacted organizations such as DCTV (The Public Access Corporation of DC). The TTS won the most recent “Hometown Media Award” for the “Best Entertainment Program” in the nation, giving DCTV it’s first ever award in this category; won a “Monty Award” for Best Entertainment Program on MCT-TV; and is also a two time winner of DCTV’s “Viewers Choice Award”!

With a heart for others, Tommy recently participated in a mission trip to Belize, where he helped organize a community concert and led youth arts workshops. Taylor relishes the opportunity to aid others, & especially enjoys helping other young artist grow in their craft through his artistic endeavors. Taylor strives to keep God first and to be a positive role model in the lives of young people, personally and artistically. As such he works with the Best Friends Foundation to use entertainment to help “At Risk” youth make positive choices in life.
