ABOUT THE PRODUCERS:
Whether hosting HOT 97 Morning Show for over 7 years, DJing and doing stand-up around the world, or producing & hosting his own comedy shows Cipha Sounds radiates personality, driving every project. His “No Small Talk” TIDAL streaming stand up series filmed at The Comedy Cellar or his improv show “Take It Personal” at UCB theatre are just a few of the current shows taking over the city. Just as comfortable on stage as he is behind the turntables, Cipha has carved out a distinct voice in music and comedy over the past 15 years.
Cipha’s ear for talent made him a natural A&R executive, a position he has held with labels ranging from Rawkus, Tommy Boy , Neptunes’ Star Trak imprint with Pharrell Williams, and Roc-A-Fella with Jay-Z. Cipha learned how to break new records, helping turn once-unknowns like Sean Paul, 50 Cent, Pitbull, Rick Ross, Rihanna into superstars, while maintaining a healthy sense of humor on the mic. In 2003, he took an even bigger leap into the music industry and began hosting “Sucker Free” and “TRL” on MTV. In the past few months Cipha has become the first comedian to sign to ROCNATION management and has teamed up with Alicia Keys to develop a Television Series.
Described as a high energy comic, Chris Distefano acts out a variety of characters derived from his life, typically leaving you on the edge of your seat wondering “Who the hell is that he’s talking about?”
Chris has worked at all of the top comedy clubs across New York City including but not limited to Gotham Comedy Club, Carolines on Broadway, and The Comedy Cellar. Chris has a Bachelors degree in Psychology to impress his mom’s friends, and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy to impress his Moms friend’s Moms.
You can catch Chris all over MTV! He is a current cast member on MTV2s hit show “GuyCode”. You can also see him featured on MTVs “GirlCode” “Failosiphy” and “Money From Strangers”.
Chris was selected from hundreds of comedians across the country to be one of Comedy Centrals “Comics to Watch” as part of the 2012 New York Comedy Festival. He was selected as a finalist in “New York’s Funniest” as a part of the 2012 New York Comedy festival as well. On June 20th, 2013, Chris made his network Televison debut, on The Late Show with David Letterman, on CBS. Chris has opened up for comedy legends such as Richard Lewis, Gilbert Godfried, and Artie Lange.
Chris has been heard on Sirius XM radio and his left elbow was featured on a National Subway Commercial. It’s a good elbow. He would know. He loves elbows.
Lukas Kaiser is a stand up comedian living in NYC. During the day, he’s an award winning Creative Director at Viacom Velocity, working on long & short form branded comedic content for Comedy Central & Spike TV. Notable projects include work for Spike’s “Lip Sync Battle” as well as the launch of Comedy Central’s “Cinema Social Club,” the stand up comedy property “Funny Cause It’s True” and “Epic” on Spike.

His songs have been featured on a wide array of shows, from Saturday Night Live to The Simpsons to MTV’s Guy Code to TruTV’s Impractical Jokers and beyond.
