Matt McCusker

Matt McCusker is a comedian, writer, and proud co-host of Matt and Shane’s Secret Podcast with Shane Gillis.


After spending much of his young life engaging in mostly non-violent criminal activity, Matt has dedicated the rest of his days toward the pursuit of peace and harmony.


He wrote the novel Overlook: A Story About Drugs, Disappointment, and the American Dream.


He was also supposed to be on a local TV news show once, but they scrapped the segment. Matt seems to think it had something to do with the fact that he showed up incredibly stoned and didn’t really answer any of their questions in a coherent and satisfying manner.


He is a stern, yet loving father and a sexually dedicated husband who ultimately places God above all things.

Tony Hinchcliffe is a touring stand up comedian, writer, and podcast host based out of Austin, Texas. Hinchcliffe began his career cutting his teeth at the renowned Comedy Store in Los Angeles—evolving from a door guy saturated in the world of comedy to a paid regular sharing the stage with the best comics in the world.

As the host of the No.1 live podcast in the world, Kill Tony, he has scaled his namesake platform to stream to hundreds of thousands weekly and over 100 million people total in its ten years running since June 2013. Hinchcliffe and his assembly of enthusiasts collectively made ‘The Store’ the place to be on Monday nights before touring every major city in the US, traversing the globe in an international run, and discovering numerous fresh comics and elevating many more up-and-coming voices. With Kill Tony’s new home at The Comedy Mothership—Joe Rogan’s club in the core of Downtown Austin—this uniquely influential open mic in the stand up universe has a legacy unrivaled by anything else out there.

As a professional wordsmith with impressive edge, Hinchcliffe partners his reputation as a roast comic with a long-working résumé supporting his uniquely qualified candidacy. From his membership of the Writer’s Guild to his Comedy Central rolodex of credits, he is a top draft pick to judge roast battles and also extremely well-insulated by the company of the most respected working stand-ups today.

Bert Kreischer: Tops Off World Tour

Bert Kreischer’s career has evolved from being Rolling Stone’s 1997 "Number One Partier in the Nation," to one of the top grossing stand-up comics in the business, and most recently, star of a major motion picture. According to Forbes, Kreischer has been hailed as, “one of the best storytellers of his generation, seamlessly and sincerely sharing anecdotes about his family and fatherhood while proving that there’s a way to take his [party-boy] antics into middle-age.”

In March, Kreischer released his highly anticipated 5th stand-up special, Razzle Dazzle and his stand-up specials, Secret Time, The Machine, and Hey Big Boy are currently streaming on Netflix, as well. Razzle Dazzle has charted in the top 5 standup specials on Netflix and has been accompanied by at least one of his other three specials in the top 20 since its debut. Kreischer starred in and produced the film, The Machine, which premiered in the spring of 2023, based on his signature stand-up set recounting his true experience with Russian mobsters while on a booze-soaked college trip. The Machine has been in the top 10 on Netflix since its release on the platform on September 23rd.

Additionally, Kreischer wrapped the second annual Fully Loaded Comedy Festival that hit sixteen of the most iconic ballparks and arenas across the country this summer. Bert is taking Fully Loaded to sea in the fall with the Fully Loaded at Sea Cruise this October and the highly anticipated event sold out in just a few days. Kreischer is currently on the second leg of his Tops Off World Tour ranging from the US and Canada to Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

In addition to being named “one of the US’s top stand-ups over the past decade” by The Guardian, Kreischer is a world-renowned top podcaster hosting Bertcast, with over 500 episodes, and 2 Bears 1 Cave with Tom Segura, which consistently charts in the top 10 comedy podcasts worldwide. Bert also created, hosts, and produces the YouTube cooking show, Something’s Burning, which has gathered over 18.2 million views. On social media, Kreischer boasts impressive numbers, totaling 12.2M fans across all platforms, and 205.7 million total views on his YouTube channel alone. In 2022, Bert founded Berty Boy Productions, the production home to the entire video and podcast solar system that orbits Kreischer, his friends and colleagues, and the Fully Loaded Comedy brand.

Dusty Slay

You can take the boy out of the trailer park, but you can’t take the trailer park out of the boy… stand-up comedian Dusty Slay grew up on Lot 8 of a mobile home neighborhood in Opelika, Alabama, with a love for both classic country and rock and a career history peppered with jobs like waiting tables and selling pesticides. Now the Alabama native with the “We’re havin’ a Good Time” attitude is hitting cities all across the country playing comedy clubs and selling out theaters filled with fans eager to imitate his signature Wave. The trucker hat, long hair and mustache, flannel shirt and oversized glasses aren’t affectations to cultivate a stage persona as the B-side of a 1970s Bob Seger track—it’s just Dusty.

The breakout comedian hit the mainstream featuring as one of six comics in season 3 of Netflix’s The Stand Ups, highlighting new comedians at the top of their game. Previous appearances on Comedy Central, as a guest panelist on Lights Out with David Spade and Stand-Up Featuring as well as 3 unforgettable late night sets on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon have helped established Dusty as a crowd favorite and bonafide star on the silver screen. In 2019 he joined Comedy Central’s Clusterfest in 2019 and has previously performed on Jimmy Kimmel LiveLast Comic Standing, and Laughs on Fox in addition to regular stints on “The Bob & Tom Radio Show” as well as the nationally syndicated “The Bobby Bones Show”.


At age 36, Slay became the youngest comedian to ever perform on the legendary Grand Ole Opry stage in his adopted hometown of Nashville. To date he’s logged dozens of appearances in front of “his people” on the historic stage in the last few years fully imbedding himself in the country music scene and having been asked to host some of the biggest events across the subculture, including Hangover Fest at the ACMs in Las Vegas in 2022 and CMA Fest’s Forever Country Stage with the likes of Scotty McCreery, Dustin Lynch, Lainey Wilson and some of the most iconic names in the genre.
