Johnny Pemberton is a comedian, actor, writer, mildly knowledgeable gardener, reggae enthusiast, and friend to both insects and mammals. Johnny is a nationally touring comedian and host of the vanguard podcast “LIVE to TAPE” on Starburns Audio. He was born and raised in Rochester Minnesota. He lives in Los Angeles.

Amy Miller was one of Comedy Central’s “Up Next” comics for 2018, and was a breakout favorite in Season 9 of Last Comic Standing. She has a half hour comedy special on Epix! Her Comedy Central Presents set has been viewed over 3 million times on Youtube and Facebook. She was also a featured comic on Viceland’s Flophouse. On Last Comic Standing, Keenen Ivory Wayans said she had one of the “fiercest jokes he had ever heard.” Originally from the East Bay, Amy found her comedy chops in Oakland and is still a regular at the SF Punch Line and Cobb’s Comedy Club. Her material is personal, political, and 100% authentic. The Laugh Button says “She found a wildly creative way to find empowerment while simultaneously sparking laughter” and Courting Comedy says “Miller juxtaposes an unassuming demeanor with unflinching assurance.” After a move to Portland in 2012, Amy quickly rose to the top of the Pacific Northwest comedy scene, winning Portland’s Funniest in Helium’s 2015 contest, as well as being voted Portland’s Funniest Comedian for 2013 and 2015 in the Willamette Week. She was the first woman to win each position and the only one to win all three.
Amy’s debut album Solid Gold is available on Kill Rock Stars, and was named one of the top 10 comedy albums of that year by The Interrobang. You may have also seen Amy on Viceland or heard her on Sirius XM, NPR, Doug Loves Movies, The Adam Carolla Show, The Bennington Show, The Dana Gould Hour, Why Won’t You Date Me? with Nicole Byer, Punch Up the Jam, Never Seen It, All Fantasy Everything, Keith and the Girl, or her own podcast “Who’s Your God?.”
