Kira Soltanovich grew up in San Francisco during a time when there were bad neighborhoods, cheap coffee and it wasn’t ironic to ride the cable cars. She began her comedy career back in 1998 after asking her Russian immigrant parents if they would support her dream to become a stand up. After her mother and father confessed “It’s not like you’re smart enough to be a doctor…” Kira took that as their blessing to pursue her dreams and she’s never looked back. She was a series regular on How To Be A Grownup for TruTV, the hidden camera show Girls Behaving Badly and was a correspondent on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for over 8 years. Recently, Kira co-hosted the game show Winsanity with Donald Faison for the Game Show Network.
One of Kira’s greatest achievements is shooting her latest 1 Hour Stand Up Special,You Did This To Me, which was completely self-produced and she shot it while over 7 months pregnant. The first stand up comedian to shoot a special pregnant! Kira has appeared on "The Jay Leno Show," "Hello Ross!" with Ross Mathews, "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Last Call with Carson Daly," "Hell’s Kitchen," "Last Comic Standing," "Set List TV," and "The World Stands Up" on Comedy Central.
She has written for Joan Rivers, Scott Baio, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. And here’s an interesting fact, three of those people have dated each other.

He is a featured performer for Cirque-a-Palooza, produced and directed by Stefan Haves, a director for seven Cirque du Soleil productions. Scot's success grows out of a lifetime of preparation and performing, which began at age seven when a neighbor started teaching him magic tricks. By age eleven, he was getting paid to perform at birthday parties and banquets. His success in public spaces lead to his success on the stage… like Crash Course, an eccentric cooking show that the San Francisco Chronicle described as "Emeril meets Johnny Knoxville!” In 2001, his work drew the attention of country music megastars Brooks and Dunn who invited him to tour with them as their opening act– playing 15,000 seat amphitheaters in more than 40 states across the U.S.
