Two male comics, two female comics – married and single – talk about relationships and other wonders. Pre-celebrate Valentine’s Day (or don’t!) with tales of love and not-love, bad dinners and good dates, broken cars and unbroken dreams.

The Ivy League of Comedy is the premier group of stand-up comedians touring America. Their shows honor audiences with original, well-written comedy that doesn’t resort to playing on stereotypes or picking on the audience, and is delivered by stand-up comedy’s funniest and brightest.
Karen Bergreen (Comedy Central, Nick Mom, The View)
A mother of two small boys, Karen does stand-up in order to get out of the house. She has appeared on Comedy Central, The Oxygen Network, NickMom, The View and The Joy Behar Show. While the kids aren’t looking, Karen is a novelist. Her 2010 comic novel Following Polly earned praise from The New York Times, Oprah Magazine, and her mother-in-law. Her second novel Perfect is Overrated was released last summer.
Liz Miele (Comedy Central)
Liz Miele has appeared on Comedy Central and AXS TV. She’s been featured in The New Yorker, NY Times, Runner’s World and The Guardian. She regularly tours with Armed Forces Entertainment and is currently touring with Chris McDougal (author of “Born to Run”) on his book tour this year. Liz also recently released her debut album “Emotionally Exhausting,” which you can find on itunes, amazon and cdbaby.com.
Wali Collins (Letterman, Comedy Central)
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.”
Mike Recine (Conan)
Mike Recine is either the smartest dumb guy or the dumbest smart guy in the room. He’s performed stand-up on Conan, written for the MTV Video Music Awards, performed as a New Face in the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, and been nominated for Time Out New York’s Joke of the Year. Since his first open mic as a teenager in Jersey, he’s performed at nearly every comedy venue in NYC, blending observation and personal storytelling with a pitch-perfect dark wit. Catch him live to see one of the only guys Brooklyn hipsters and Jersey slobs can agree on.
Check out this amazing talent!
