Each year in New York City, a group of cutting-edge comedians compete for the Andy Kaufman Award, which showcases risk-taking and unconventional comedy acts. At this special event, the 2007 winner, Brent Weinbach, will perform and present the 2015 winner Brett Davis along with 2015 finalists Jo Firestone and Ben Kronberg.

Brent Weinbach is a winner and recipient of the Andy Kaufman Award, which is given out once a year to recognize innovation in stand-up comedy. He is also responsible for various internet video sensations such as "Gangster Party Line" as well as the cult web series, "Pound House."  Brent has appeared on "Conan," "Lopez Tonight," Comedy Central, HBO, IFC, ABC, and Adult Swim, and also toured with the Comedians of Comedy.

Brett Davis performs comedy under the guises of his many twisted characters, and on his public access variety show "The Special Without Brett Davis." He co-hosts the monthly extravaganza erroneously titled "The Macaulay Culkin Show" at Shea Stadium in Brooklyn, and the monthly "Lethal Lottery" at Over The Eight. He has also appeared on "The Chris Gethard Show," Adult Swim, MTV, "The Best Show on WFMU," numerous music videos and his film "Bananazzz."

Jo Firestone is a comedian and producer based in Brooklyn, NY. She creates and hosts several alternative comedy shows around the city, including "The Incredible Game Show Showcase," "Punderdome 3000," "Friends of Single People," "Firestone Success Academy," and "The Unexpectashow," among many others. Jo was recently named one of Brooklyn Magazine's 30 Under 30 and one of the Top Up and Coming Comedians on Splitsider. She is a regular contributor to "The Chris Gethard Show" on Fusion and "You're The Expert" on WBUR. Her radio show, "Dr. Gameshow," can be heard every Monday night from 6-7pm EST on WFMU.

Ben Kronberg combines clever one-liners and witty observations with catchy songs that he performs while playing instruments like the guitar, casio-keyboard and iPhone! Much of his material has been inspired by girlfriends, who are now incidentally ex-girlfriends. Since his breakout performance at the 2007 HBO Aspen Comedy Festival, Ben has performed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "John Oliver's New York Stand-up Show," "Last Call with Carson Daly" and most recently his own Half Hour Special on Comedy Central. Comedy Central recently named Ben as one of the "Comics to Watch." Ben is also the star of the popular web series: “Ted & Gracie,” about a woman who is engaged to a serial killer and has no idea... $25 All Ages
