Stand-up comedian Shaun Eli has rightfully been called one of America’s smartest comics. Whether it’s a story about dining with a vegetarian or successfully fighting a parking ticket, master storyteller Shaun Eli shows you that there’s hilarity in the ordinary if you approach life with a comedic warp. Job interviews? Serving on a NYC criminal jury? How about the Ten Commandments? For just about anything he’s experienced Shaun has a hilarious story at the ready.
Shaun performs regularly at theatres in NY. Shaun was born in Queens to Brooklyn-raised parents, and spent most of his childhood in Scarsdale, Westchester County. And yes, he’s got jokes about that.
As a competitive rower Shaun competed in the Empire States Games in both Albany and Syracuse but isn’t tough enough to endure the cold winters of Rochester or Buffalo.
He regularly performs in theatres in Westchester County and on Long Island, and at comedy clubs in NYC. In fact when WNBC TV featured Shaun in a news segment they showed a clip of him performing at the Madison Theatre in Rockville Centre, Long Island.

His first time on stage Wali was convinced that he had bombed, but the manager paid him and asked him to come back every week as a featured act. Wali moved to New York City to work on a show for Comedy Central called “Stand-up Stand-up”. He hosted the largest, funniest, most varied collection of stand-up comedians in the world.
Nominated three years in a row as “College Campus Entertainer of the Year,” Wali is also sought after for corporate events. One of Wali’s greatest achievements was hosting an event for First Lady Michelle Obama. Collins’ television stand-up credits include NBC, CBS, FOX, HBO, ABC’s “The View”, Comedy Central’s Tough Crowd and Commentary on VH1. David Letterman caught Wali’s act and recruited him to warm-up for his show. Later that season Wali performed his stand up on the Late Show with David Letterman. In the words of Robert Klein, “Wali Collins is versatile, smart and very, very funny.”
Wali lives in NYC.

After appearances on Letterman, Last Comic Standing and Jimmy Kimmel Live, Moody McCarthy is no longer a well-kept secret. (After an appearance on the re-vamped Star Search, he still was.) With sharp, versatile material and an old-school ethic, Moody has performed all over North America and Asia and left them wanting more (as in “Bravo!”, not “We were ripped!”).
Moody began his career in Syracuse, NY, in the 1900s and quickly established himself as a keen monologist. Now based in New York City, he’s become a regular in the town’s best rooms and grown into an act that thrives in any setting, from upscale country clubs to divey pubs. Weaving sly topical jokes with crafty material and a dash of crowd-work, Moody’s likeability shines in any setting.
Moody McCarthy: few people hate him!
