The comedians appearing at ASU, Rory Scovel, Jerrod Carmichael and Duncan Trussell, are among performers identified by Comedy Central as its favorite rising stars and invited to participate in the fifth “Comedy Central on Campus” tour.
Scovel is making a name for himself across North America discussing drugs, politics and life in general. He has appeared at comedy festivals in Montreal, Vancouver, Seattle and Chicago, and has opened for Louis CK, Daniel Tosh and Nick Swardson. Scovel made his television debut on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” and has appeared on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”
Carmichael, a Los Angeles-based standup comedian, was featured recently in Variety as one of the Top 10 Comics to Watch, and one of the “New Faces” at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival. He is a regular in some of Los Angeles’ favorite standup shows, including “Meltdown,” “The Improv” and “Laugh Factory.”
Trussell is a writer, producer and standup comedian with television credits that include “Mad TV,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and Fuel TV’s “Stupidface.” In 2010, he starred in the HBO “Funny or Die” segment “Drunk History: Nicola Tesla.” Trussell’s recent writing credits include Nick Swardson’s “Pretend Time” on Comedy Central and “La La Land” on Showtime. He performed at the 2009 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and can be seen regularly at the Hollywood Improv and the Comedy Store in Los Angeles.
