Rhonda Coleman, Comedyfessional-In-Chief

Comedyfessionals founder, Visionary, RainMaker, Rhonda Coleman, the Comedyfessional-In-Chief is a force of nature that even FEMA would respond to.  With one part business savvy and two parts swag, the only time she sleeps is the five minutes a day Anderson Cooper doesn't look pensive.  Her innate ability to not only envision a goal but actualize it is what enables her to wear many hats, all of which she'll remove when seated in front of a short person. Stand-up comic, keynote speaker, muse, entrepreneur, designer, developer and writer-director-producer for television-film-new media (Deprogramming Daddy, Oprahliciousness , BossNiggalicious, and documentaries Hello, Schizo and Comedyfessionals among them) this veteran entertainment exec has helped shape the careers of A-list celebs, pro athletes and icons.  Her circle of well-connected BFF's includes industry heavyweights, veteran comics, and coveted writers, producers, directors and financiers, to launch the only full-service multicultural comedy talent and content entertainment company you will ever need: The Comedyfessionals.

Sara Ledesma

Sara Ledesma

Sara Ledesma shares the best of both worlds. She's a dead ringer for Angelina Jolie, but doesn't have to constantly wait for Brad to finish using her blow dryer. Oh, and no adopted kids running around either. She's adopted less messy things like vegetarianism, although nuked lentil beans can get messy. Suffice it to say her passions for writing as well as performing also heat up at a moment's notice. (She was a story editor on Dr. 90210, and relayed her expertise on the Usher feature film, In the Mix, and at NFL Networks, IMAX, William Morris and United Artists.) This San Francisco Bay area native is definitely a triple threat: Beauty... brains... beans.

 

Doug Allen

Doug Allen

Doug Allen If SideshowDoug Allen had a bigger ego, he would have called himself "Main Attraction Doug Allen." Fully schooled in the BS of life and Film Production from Montana State, he's a graduate of the UCLA Professional Program in Screenwriting, and The Second City Training Center's Conservatory Program in Improvisation. Sideshow has performed standup, sketch comedy and improv at theaters and comedy clubs across Southern California, and penned many a short film, spec TV episode, pilot, and revamped joke for screenwriters. Due to popular demand, his comedy troupe, "Be Afraid" sold out all performances and (ironically) fearlessly snuck in additional fans through the kitchen, violating a handful of fire codes and ruining the soup. Green in a way that would make Al Gore burst with pride if he wasn't already bursting, he regularly blogs about his veggie-diesel car, and is equally known for his humorous and occasionally appalling "Fake Word Of the Day."

 

Lloyd Collins

Lloyd Collins

Lloyd Collins's Chicago background happily excludes selling anybody a Senate seat, but he has filled plenty of seats at the Chicago, Gainesville, Milwaukee and Charleston Improv Festivals.  After graduating from Illinois State University, he began exercising his improv muscles in and around Chicago, from Donny's, to Skybox , and IO Chicago.  The Chicago comedy groups that have been pumped up with his presence include Pimprov, Becoming Jerome and Alpine Rescue.  He also made his mark on the long-running show, Chicago Improv Rebellion.  After landing with Disney Entertainment, Lloyd's first city is now Los Angeles, where he currently studies at IO West.
