Tom has made appearances on NBC, CBS, Tonight Show with Jay Leno, America’s Got Talent, Howard Stern & Last Comic Standing. Tom Cotter is the breakout comedy star from ‘America’s Got Talent’. Tom Cotter is one of the most prolifically funny comedians in the country. He is the MASTER of side-splitting wordplay. He remains a familiar face from appearances on the late-night talk show circuit (such as THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO, CRAIG FERGUSON & BYRON ALLEN) in countless broadcasts, and in his own original comedy specials.

Kyle has been seen on P.Diddy’s Bad Boys of Comedy, VH1, NBC & Comedy Central. He has acted & written for DAVE CHAPPELLE, and Kyle is one of the hottest comics on the USA circuit today. He’s been featured on several TV, radio and internet broadcasts, including Jamie Foxx’s “Laffapalooza”

Liz has been seen on Comedy Central & Gotham City Live. Liz Miele also recently appeared on Hulu’s “Coming To The Stage,” and NPR’s “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me”. She’s the writer & producer of the animated web series “Damaged”. Her joke “Feminist Sex Positions” went viral both on YouTube and Upworthy.com. Liz also recently released her debut comedy album, “Emotionally Exhausting” on iTunes and Amazon.

All shows will be hosted by Comedy Masala founder & Pakistani comedian, UMAR RANA (seen on Comedy Central Presents Stand-Up Asia & voted 2013 Top 10 Comedians in Asia by Top 10 Magazine). Umar was the official opening act for BILL BURR in Singapore, and has hosted & opened for Hollywood comedian Rob Schneider. Now celebrating his EIGHTH year (and 450+ shows!) as the Founder & Resident Host at Comedy Masala Singapore, Umar will once again take you on a ride throughout the show.
