JR Brow

with Chris Tellez

J.R. Brow went to college, became a standup comic, and eventually toured 49 states and 4 continents with his guitar in hand. His original standup comedy instantly won over young and old fans alike. Almost immediately, J.R. marched to the finals of the San Francisco Comedy Competition. He has opened for performers like Dana Carvey, Ray Romano, Bill Hicks, and Steven Wright. He's recently been featured on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham" and CBS’s "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" as well as many other television spots along the way.

Like the rarest of breeds, J.R. electrifies audiences with his high energy storytelling and spot-on mimicry. When his guitar comes into the act, the originality peaks with his unique musical prowess. Brow's comedy can be heard on his current CD, "Dumber By The Decade" and read in his upcoming memoir, "The Ancient Greeks Had Nothing On Me."

J.R. lives in Austin, travels forty-plus weeks a year, and is constantly writing new bits. In his free time, he collects Japanese guitars and rare vinyl records.

Chris Tellez

Chris Tellez’s easy-going charisma and storytelling knack sometimes give his sets a conversational vibe, but his unorthodox perspectives and sharp writing skills help him stuff those seemingly relaxed performances with outstanding comedy.

The Dallas-raised, Austin-based comic may refer to himself as lazy, but Tellez stays plenty busy. Some of his time is regularly taken up by his own projects – like running the popular Shit’s Golden monthly stand-up showcase with Pat Dean or co-hosting the “Why Should We Care?” podcast with AJ Henderson. He also consistently performs on popular Austin showcases and has earned opportunities to work with standout headliners like Baron Vaughn and Kyle Kinane.

Tellez’s comedy focuses on material grounded in jokes he’d want to hear as an audience member. His aim is to continue developing comedy that suits him, even if a new direction isn’t necessarily what he expected. When creative growth means building an act around more semen and poop jokes, he commits to it.
