Exploding onto the national comedy scene, K-von has been dazzling audiences with his “Hip Pop Culture” brand of comedy for the past few years. Instead of going to law school or pursuing the normal “good Persian son” path to medical school, K-von opted to follow his first love, making people laugh! He left the pursuit of Dentistry to his younger brother. Inspired by the comics he most admires, David Letterman and the late George Carlin, K-von left his hometown in Nevada and moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of being an entertainer. As a child he wanted to be Letterman and one day have a job just like his. With Carlin, K-von admired his freedom to say anything he wanted while satirizing the general state of humanity. With this ammo in his psyche, K-von with his intense energy and charisma began to explore the edgy competitive environment of the LA comedy club scene. To his delight the audiences laugh at his take on the current state of dating as a young single male and the trials and tribulations of growing up in a culturally diverse family. After performing across the nation as a headliner and comedy host, along with opening for such comics as Jamie Kennedy and MazJobrani, K-von has found, “The best part of comedy is I can hang out with people every night who can find a way to see humor in every aspect of life.” When K-von has a break from performing he watches other up and coming comics work. He loves to exploit his talents as a chef and even demonstrated them on a cooking show “Hot Guys Who Cook.” K-von also enjoys music, especially U2, athletics, as K-von is a competitive tri-athlete, reading, and a love of animals. Sadly K- von’s performing schedule doesn’t allow him to have a pet at this time. K-von aspires to have his comedy reach all ages as well as all walks of life. While being edgy, younger audiences are able to enjoy his act. The thrill of making people laugh is K-von’s daily pursuit!

Fortune Feimster, the loveable Southern comic with great hair and an even better personality, moved to Los Angeles in 2003 to pursue comedy after graduating Summa Cum Laude from Peace College in North Carolina. But first she made a pit stop in Sevilla, Spain for a year where she taught English, studied Spanish, and backpacked all over Western Europe. Even in a place where people spoke a different language, Fortune was able to tap into the universal gift of laughter.

Upon arriving to L.A., Fortune became a columnist for Beck/Smith Hollywood and wrote for such outlets as the Creators Syndicate, netscape.com, and the NY Daily News. Having studied acting in college, she decided to take an improv class for fun, but soon a budding comedian was born!

She has since taken the Los Angeles comedy scene by storm and last year made her national TV debut on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” where she finished as a semi-finalist. Now Fortune is a full-time writer and performer on the E! Network’s popular “Chelsea Lately” show.

In her spare time, Fortune travels the country doing standup, but can often be seen at the Hollywood Improv and the World Famous Comedy Store where she is a paid regular. She also happens to be a highly accomplished sketch comedian and improv artist and is a member of the prestigious Groundlings Sunday Company, which boasts such alumni as Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, and Lisa Kudrow. While Fortune has already made tremendous strides in a short period of time, there’s no doubt this is only the beginning of what’s to come!
