With a style best described as, “observation with an edge” comedian Robby Slowik is quickly establishing himself as someone to watch. Establishing himself as anything else would be a complete waste of time.
After starting comedy in Tampa, FL Robby spent 4 years in Los Angeles where he was named one of The Laugh Factory’s “Fresh Faces” and was a regular performer on “Comedy Juice” a show that Sirius/XM radio called “The best stand-up show in the country.” He was a finalist in the 2014 Laughing Skull Comedy Festival and he was also handpicked to participate in the prestigious Great American Comedy Festival.
He has performed across the country and internationally and opened for such names as Greg Fitzsimmons, Brian Posehn, and Jay Chandrasekhar. He can be seen on Hulu.com’s QuickLaffs and he has been a guest on numerous Podcast’s including Ralphie May’s Perfect 10 Podcast. He has also written for the Wayans Brother’s WhatTheFunny.com and done punch up work for a major Los Angeles based advertising firm.
Robby currently resides in New York City where he can be seen nightly getting up in the clubs, alt rooms, and bars. He can also be seen eating 99¢ pizza more often than is probably ok.
Sandy Marks broke into the standup scene in the early ’90s, after two years spent mining Neil Simon monologues for humor left him desperate to pen his own jokes. (No offense, Neil.)
He’s got a knack for spinning facts and stats into fast-paced, stream-of-consciousness-style humor that doesn’t just inspire ebullient mirth but also hits home some rather startling truths about humanity. (Don’t believe me? Come watch him. No but really. Get off the couch.)
When asked, Marks describes himself as vapid, soulless, empty, and paranoid. But this serially self-deprecating Rolling Stone-approved “comedian” who, according to Time Out New York, may be “appearing at several clubs this week,” is a true charmer with enough energy to make any audience member sufficiently nauseous — or maybe that’s just his outfit (we’re not quite sure).
Marks has made dashing appearance on CBS’s “The King of Queens,” HBO’s “Comedy in the Park” and as a guest sports caster advocating animal rights on Fox and Friends (political opinions, his own).
In addition to touring nationally and overseas — memorable locations included but not limited to Vegas, Atlantic City, Paris, Venezuela, Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, and Amsterdam (hell yes) — Mr. Marks has graced the films “Kiss Me Again” and “Manhattan Comedy Nights” with his remarkably tall stature and unforgettably enormous hands.
I mean, really, what’s not to love?

As Mark tells it, “I wanted to do Shakespeare, but I have this heavy New York accent, so I went to a speech therapist, a good one, she was a big shot, she worked with Meryl Streep, after two lessons she gave me my money back, she said couldn’t help me because I wasn’t practicing enough. I said I am practicing at home,
but I can’t practice at work because I’m a NYC COP. I can’t yell, Thou art under arrest, at the bad guys, they’d laugh at me and walk away.
