BulletBoys: Current Lineup: MARQ TORIEN, Vocals and Lead Guitar; NICK ROZZ, Rhythm Guitar; CHAD MACDONALD, Bass; JOAQUIN REVUELTA, Drums

The BulletBoys began as a collection of talented musicians from high profile bands such as King Kobra and Ratt. Using their credentials, they were able to quickly capture the attention of music fans around the world while front man Marq Torien emerged as one of the most underrated vocalists of the era.

The BulletBoys formed in 1988 at the very peak of the Los Angeles glam metal movement. With record companies constantly searching for new talent, they possessed a pedigree that most bands would kill for. Unlike the other glam rockers of the day, the BulletBoys were more hard rock and blues fusion than pure hair metal. Thanks to comparisons to the likes of Aerosmith and especially Van Halen, talent scouts came running and the band quickly received their first major label contract. Over the years they dominated both MTV and radio airwaves, and remain relevant to this day in heavy rotation on VH1's "Metal Mania" and Internet (SiriusXM's Hair Nation, KNAC.COM, etc.) radio throughout the world!

Steve Byrne: Steve Byrne was born in Freehold, NJ to a Korean mother and an Irish father providing him with a wealth of comedic material. After stepping on stage for the first time on September 30, 1997, he has never looked back. His long road in comedy has taken him to many places and appearances. He has been seen on his own Comedy Central Presents special, Premium Blend, The Late Late Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly, The Kims of Comedy DVD, BET's Comic View and many more TV appearances. Steve has been invited to do radio on the Bob and Tom Show, ManCow, Johnny Dare and even The Howard Stern Show. He has opened up for Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Kings of Leon and Modest Mouse to name a few. He has been a regular at Beachers Madhouse in Las Vegas and has even been a part of Vince Vaughns Wild West Comedy Tour. He has performed at The Bonnaroo Music Festival, The Latin Comedy Festival and most recently, the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. His lack of ego and hard work ethic have made Steve an in demand act at clubs and colleges all over the country.

Owen Benjamin: Owen Benjamin started his comedy career in music. Growing up with an opera singer father, Owen has played classical piano since childhood. Owen was a regular on MTV’s PUNK’D, and has appeared on E!’s CHELSEA LATELY and Comedy Central’s LIVE AT GOTHAM.

Owen feature credits include I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU CHUCK AND LARRY and THE HOUSE BUNNY and he can soon be seen in ALL’S FAIRE IN LOVE with Christina Ricci and BORN TO BE A STAR with Nick Swardson. He has done stand up at the Aspen Comedy Festival and clubs and colleges across America.

His short films and web series (OWEN BENJAMIN PRESENTS and GAYTOWN) have accumulated over 10 million hits. Owen has opened for Nick Swardson, Anthony Clark, Dave Attell, and Taylor Hicks. His unique blend of music and comedy makes his show a must-see.

Roy Wood Jr: Hailing from Birmingham, AL. Roy started his comedy career in 1999 at the age of 19 while attending Florida A&M University. Roys comedy crosses all races and cultural lines which has allowed Roy to work with an array of comedians ranging from D.L. Hughley, Ron White, Monique, Tommy Davidson, Bill Engvall, and Sheryl Underwood. This same versatility also gives him the ability to perform in clubs as well as numerous colleges and universities across the country. Roy just appeared at the 2006 Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in the New Faces Showcase where critics awarded him top honors. The Hollywood Reporter called Roy a standout among all the New Faces of 2006. The Montreal Gazette said Roy Wood Jr. gives tremendous show taking the top spot. In 2002, Roy earned a slot as one of ten national finalists in Comedy Centrals Laugh Riots competition in Los Angeles. In March 2003, Roy was selected for Star Search on CBS where he advanced to the semi-finals. He has also appeared on Its Showtime at the Apollo, Live in Hollywood and most recently the 2005 season of Comedy Centrals Premium Blend and BETs Comic View.

Ahmed Ahmed: I'm a pretty laid back person for the most part. I work hard and I play hard. I also love the beach and having down time. I have a wicked sense of humor and will do almost anything to create laughter in a room when it's appropriate. I travel a lot for my work and I love it. I get to see things on a national and international level and all I have to do is be funny. What a great life. If you ever want to catch the next level of rising comedy stars attend a show at The World Famous Comedy Store in Hollywood. I've have the privilege to work with some of the funniest mother f!@..*ers around out right now. The Store is raw like it used to be back in the 80's when Richard Pryor, Jim Carey, Robin Williams and Whoopi Goldberg were around. The new talent there is incredible and you should check it out.
