Ku Egenti is too legit to quit. Recently just released his debut comedy album titled «Your Favorite African.» You can find it on ITunes, Spotify and CD Baby and has a station on Pandora radio.
Ben Jackson got his first taste of the comedy stage the summer of 2011. It was fun but he didn't take it seriously. It wasnt until the following year and having to follow a strong list of comics at an open mic that he really kicked it into overdrive. Speaking on personal experiences he's seen or witnessed, Ben spews tales like the oldest uncle at your family reunion. Ben's performed at the Houston Improv, Arlington Improv, Laugh It Comedy Lounge, and the Joke Joint Comedy Showcase. In 2017, in a controversial finish, he placed 2nd in the Funniest In South Texas Competiton. He's shared stages with Rudy Rush, Redd Grant, Joe Torry, and Comedian Shawty to name a few.
