Standups are listed in alphabetical order, going by last name.
Alex Camp is a stand up from the UK, which means his ancestors set sail to 'discover' the world, while the closest he got to Discovery was the channel. At least, back when he had a TV. Alex mixes stinging one liners with whimsical journeys through drugs, global warming, the galaxy, and, of course, McDonalds. A heady mix that will get you laughing, whether he is hosting a night or performing a 30 minute set.
William is a Tokyo based British comic. He has performed around Asia, Britain, and the US.
Jamie Cook is a native of Detroit and has been performing standup comedy in Tokyo for seven years. He's also performed overseas in the UK, US, and Ireland. Jamie has no idea what he wants to be when he grows up, so for now he teaches English Literature and Media Studies at an international high school. He also likes beer and thinks Dave Chappelle, Louis CK, and the late Greg Giraldo are hilarious.
