Eric Patrick - It's not often that you meet a Real World roommate who's a stand-up comic AND holds a job at the State Department, traveling the globe briefing foreign service personnel on American policy.

Eric, known for his dreamy eyes is a handsome ladies' man and has perfected the art of juggling various girls at one time
Lafayette Wright - Lafayette Wright is unique in that he is a comic, to whose self-obsession with rejection, inadequacy, and lonliness some can relate but most can laugh at. A favorite on the DC comedy scene for his original spin on everyday subjects. Lafayette has been described as a compelling, layered, and visually striking comedian. Working at the DC Improv, Arlington Draft House, and clubs and colleges all over the area, he is definitely worth watching.
Mike Eltringham - Mike Eltringham performs regularly in the Washington D.C. metro area and comments on everything from Batman to the news on his blog, Understated Stupidity (mikeeltringham.com). His dry, acerbic wit has made him a crowd favorite since he hit the scene in 2007. He's opened for national headliners such as Todd Barry, Ted Alexandro, Nick Thune, Rob Cantrell, and T.J. Miller.
Courtney Fearrington - is a Washington D.C. native that has already shown he has the ability to make any group of people laugh.
