“Brilliant. The modern day version of Crank Yankers.” – Bob Pettit, Aqua Teen Hunger Force art director

“The Picture Show” is a stand up comedy presentation of stock photos from the internet and Facebook posts of Atlanta-based comedian Ben Palmer asking companies ridiculous questions and their hilarious responses, and also Ben’s ‘Freelance Customer Service,’ a bit where Ben answers questions on behalf of the company and raises hell and confusion on the consumers who initially asked the questions. His hilarious responses finally poke fun at the people who live to pester corporations through petty complaints and disillusioned requests.

After being fired from his job for posting pictures of his vacation on Facebook, Ben felt that it was time to go at the corporate world and its consumers. If they can view his profile and do as they please, Ben felt that he should be able to do the same. He uses his years of experience as an actual customer service representative for JoAnn Fabrics and an environmental company, in which he fielded call after call of angry customers without ever being able to express his true feelings.

Ben’s work can be found on Amazon.com in the form of two published books, Stock Photos with Captions, a collection of stock photographs with hilarious captions, and Freelance Customer Service, a story of Ben’s quest to provide the most excellent freelance customer service on Facebook for companies that he does not work for.

Ben has maneuvered his way onto three separate court television shows, Judge Alex, Judge Joe Brown, and Judge Alex again, appearing as a witness, plaintiff, and defendant, arranging court cases with his friends to sue each other and splitting the money. Ben has been performing stand up comedy for six years and has worked at clubs and theatres throughout the country.

Mary Jay Berger is an awful person (her mom says she’s sassy). You don’t believe it because she’s so attractive but she is truly terrible. She hates sharing and loves telling people that she’s a doctor. Mary is not a doctor, but she does know more about Harry Potter than Neil deGrasse Tyson knows about anything.

Mary’s credits include: the Mary Watches Movies web series and being kicked out of a Titanic museum. She produces the monthly ‘Flying With Jaybird’ stand-up comedy show and tours the midwest and south east. See the reason Mary Jay Berger’s mom cries every day.

Jim Seward didn’t follow the normal route to the entertainment business, having served 22 years in the US military. But after spending time in Iraq and using humor to get through stressful situations and to relax his troops, Jim decided to try his hand at stand-up comedy. Walking into his first open mic, he was told by the host he had two and a half minutes to make people laugh. Much to his surprise, they laughed and he never looked back. The truth is, though, Jim shouldn’t be a comic. His parents never divorced. His wife loves him (we don’t know why either, but we know it isn’t for money), his kids are relatively well adjusted. He wasn’t bullied in school. He doesn’t need a therapist. He’s never even been to jail for Pete’s sake. But despite all these major disadvantages, Jim has overcome his doubts and fears of being normal and managed to make people laugh at the reality of everyday living. His quick wit, take on kids, marriage, military experiences, travel and his memories of dating in the 80s takes the audience on a non-stop ride of laughter . Jim has a versatile range of topics that make him ideal from anything to a comedy club to corporate work to a private show. He’s even performed in churches and not been struck by lightning.

Jim has appeared in several episodes of Wicked Attractions and on FBI Takedowns. He also can be seen as the cop in the country music video by Love and Theft, “Night That You’ll Never Forget.” He has performed with Tommy Davidson, Rich Vos, John Heffron, Jon Reep, Bobby Collins and many more.

Chad has appeared on “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, the Late Show with David Letterman’s “Tony Mendez Show,” ABC’s “Nashville,” and is featured on CMT-Canada’s upcoming “Mississippi Snake Grabbers.” Biding time until his “snake money starts rolling in” when he is “super duper MF’ing Canada Famous” – Riden continues to tour the nation using his smart-ass super powers for good, not evil.

“Chad’s a good guy. He’s been through a rough divorce and his heart is heavy; he’s got a burden. That burden makes him funny.” – Marc Maron, WTF episode 209 (September, 2011) & in Marc’s book “Attempting Normal.”
