He is the creator and star of The Burn With Jeff Ross on Comedy Central as well as a producer and star of that network's wildly popular celebrity roast franchise.

Tony Hinchcliffe has been a clever addition to the Los Angeles stand-up scene since 2007. Tony is considered a fresh evolution to the now immensely popular roasting scene, working as a staff-writer on the James Franco Roast and contributing to the three previous Comedy Central Roasts, he is also a staff-writer for and can be seen on Comedy Central’s The Burn. Tony is also the host of his own show and podcast, Kill Tony, on the globally popular Deathsquad podcast network.
Originally from the UK, Adam Burke is a regular at UP Comedy Club and is well-known in the Chicago stand-up community. His absurdist, verbose comedy is long on metaphor and analogy and short on common sense. He was also voted the Best Stand Up by the Chicago Reader in 2014.
