Zach (Bboy Felto) Abeyta is a local Stand-up Comedian and Bboy from Albuquerque New Mexico. He has been breakdancing for eight years and represents the Flava Pheenz Crew est. 2011.

Jack Tapestry, twenty year vereran of poetry slam, former paratrooper, and general verbal lunatic brings the profound along with the profane with his high energy stage presence. Strap in, wear your safety goggles, and enjoy the bizarre wordplay and stories of life at the edge.

Rusty Rutherford’s twisted comedy has "More Energy Than A High School Cheer Squad" (Montreal Fringe Festival). You'll question if Rusty is sane one minute with his dark, offbeat humor, then question if he's a "Comedic Genius" (Rusty's mom) the next when he seems to incorporate every member of the audience into an on-the-spot freestyle rap.
