Neither of these comics requires an introduction. Black is a Grammy-winning comic who is known for his groundbreaking specials like Red, White and Screwed and Black on Broadway, as well as his stints on TV shows like Lewis Black’s The Root of All Evil and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Madigan is one of the funniest, most pedigreed comics in the game, having created various specials for Comedy Central, HBO and Netflix over the course of her 25-year career. She was one of the most popular contestants ever to hit the stage of Last Comic Standing, and had one of the highest-rated comedy albums on the iTunes charts with 2013’s Madigan Again.
