Joe Deeley is a man who is serious about being silly. Throughout the past decade, Joe has
been making a name for himself in the pre-apocalyptic wasteland world of comedy from Washington
D.C. to Chicago, New York City, and Los Angeles, California (not to be confused with LA,
the US Postal abbreviation for Louisiana). Joe's interests range from Pirate movies, science
fiction, and dragons, to flying machines, and absolutely ANYTHING to do with robots or

and whimsical comedy pokes fun at himself, the world, and the ever increasing seriousness we

A child of the Def Jam era James grew up listening to
comics riff about the differences between black people
and white people, yo mama jokes, and life in the
'hood. When he began his own stand-up career however,
he found that the traditional Def Jam subject matter
did not suit his style. So he developed his own brand
of racial humor by talking about his experiences as a
nerdy black man. With his economical writing style,
smart material, and clipped delivery James quickly
distinguished himself throughout the DC area comedy
scene. His deadpan, wide-eyed observations make him a
favorite of almost any crowd.
Tonight Show veteran Brett Leake described Jimmy Meritt's act as "Above the belt, between the
ears comedy....smart material, energetically performed." Jimmy Meritt spent his entire childhood
staying up past his bedtime to watch "Late Night with David Letterman." While in College,
Jimmy dove into comedy head first. Thanks to his perseverance in the active and ever growing
Washington, D.C. comedy scene, this gifted comedian quickly found himself taking the stage,
sharpening his skills seven nights a week. With his likeable stage presence and strong emphasis
on writing, Jimmy rapidly became a crowd favorite with both discerning audience members, and
fellow comedians. Since then, he's been a crowd favorite at clubs, coffee-houses, Colleges,
and corporate events. It has also been his honor to open for esteemed professionals such as
Saturday Night Live's Kevin Nealon, as well as the cast of ABC's "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"
With his geeky charm and a host of unique, yet accessible topics, Jimmy Meritt's clean comedy
is sure to be a stand-out at any show. He is currently also touring with the Comedy Project
and just finished a 30-state run of colleges and universities throughout the United States.
Evan Valentine has been performing in the DC standup circuit for two years, getting his start
as winner of the Last Comic Standing Competition at Loyola College in Maryland. Evan has

he's done it all for the name of hillarity.
Loves stuff that is not real, also he likes making jokes. Thus the Geek Comedy Tour is the perfect place to do jokes about his favorite things that aren't. After a youth wasted drawing cartoons
and adolescence take up by anime, Jake Young
quickly took to live comedy after heavy exposure to gamma radiation and basic cable. After training and performing at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC he quickly rose in the ranks of Beltway-area comedy, performing frequently at Showcase events and even doing guest spots at the DC Improv Comedy Club. You might have heard Jake Young on WGTB, XM Satelite Radio, or even on the CW network on the Season 4 premiere of "Beauty and the Geek". Furthermore, he's got uber-gusto.
