Soapbox History

Steve Hofstetter, Founder
Steve Hofstetter is the founder of Comedy Soapbox, originally crafting the website to simply take avails for a New York Room. Since then, he's helped expand Soapbox to accomodate thousands of members, and serve as a one stop shop for any comedian's needs.

As a producer, Hofstetter has run successful shows across the country, from bars and hotels to the Hollywood Improv and Comix.

Hofstetter is also an accomplished comedian, with over a dozen TV appearances, a syndicated radio show, and more than 250 live dates each year.

Danny McDermott, Founder
Danny McDermott is originally from Albany, with a B.S. in Ceramic Engineering from Alfred University. No, that's not a joke. It's a real degree. A dramatic actor since 1987, he recieved accolades from various newspapers in Alfred (NY) and Lima (Ohio) for his performances. Aside from guest hosting Barbara Walters' "The View" on ABC with 20/20's Jon Stostle, McDermott has also appeared on Comedy Central, the Queen Latifah Show, and in several commercials. You can see him performing stand-up all over the city, especially at Stand Up NY, the Underground Lounge, and Nevada Smith's. His duties with the Soap Box include overseeing the day-to-day operation of the clubs and auditioning new talent, among other things.

Sue Kelly, Comedian Recruiter
A few years ago Sue gave stand-up comedy a try, and she's been hooked ever since! A Philadelphia native, she has performed in many comedy clubs in the Philadelphia area and on the east coast. She also was a finalist in The World Series of Comedy competition at the Pittsburgh Funny Bone. She has met so many cool people and new friends through comedy that she found one of her favorite things to do was to share opportunties with others. This is what led to her becoming a Comedian Recruiter for the Soapbox. She also works as a computer help desk analyst (now you know why she performs stand-up comedy!!).

Dan Wilbur, Content Coordinator, Videos
Recently deemed the smartest man alive by himself and this other guy, Dan Wilbur is a New York-based comedian and writer. As a former student at a hipster college, Dan has learned hipster ways and witnessed hipster deeds. As a result, his material ranges from pot to poilitics to this one time he convinced all his friends that he invented the Spork. Constantly frustrated with the world’s stupidity, Dan’s clever stand-up will shield you from the drudgery of modern existence, rather than pull you down to his level of pettiness and boredom. Dan's writing is featured on,, Comedy Central Insider, and Dan is the recipient of William Paterson University’s “Funniest College Stand-up,” and was featured in the 2009 North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival. He currently works at Comix in New York.

Curt Fletcher, Regional Administrator, Colorado

Curt Fletcher knew he wanted to be a comedian in 1984. Comedy was everywhere, clubs were opening all over the country. The only problem, Curt was just four-years-old. He took the stage for the first time several years later in Albuquerque, New Mexico, at Laffs Comedy Club, where he quickly became a local favorite. Drawing comparisons to Steven Wright and the late Mitch Hedberg, crowds love his well crafted one-liners.

Curt has appeared at some of the biggest clubs in the country with some of the biggest names of comedy including; Harland Williams, T.J. Miller, Carl LaBove, Josh Blue, Chris Porter, Theo Von, Dante and Brian Posehn to name a few. He advanced to the semifinals of the HBO Lucky 21 competition. He was also selected for the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, and the Laughing Skull Festival in Atlanta. In 2007, Curt performed for the University of New Mexico football team as part of their bowl game festivities. The Lobos beat Colin Kaepernick's Nevada team 23-0, Curt thinks it's because of him.

In 2006, he made his acting debut starring in independent film, "" The movie was selected for the Santa Fe Film Festival and Sin Fronteras Film Festival. Curt's television debut in 2010 on the late night talk show, "The After After Party," hosted by Steven Michael Quezada (Breaking Bad). He's appeared on the show four times. He also appeared on "The Morning Brew with Friends." Curt co-wrote "The Consequences of a Feeble Mind," with Marc Shuter (The Bigfoot Election). The screenplay was selected as a preliminary finalist in the Creative World Awards screenwriting competition. The movie will be filmed in 2015. He was also a writer for the AVN Awards on Showtime in 2014.

Ted Riot, Regional Adminstrator, Michigan
Ted Riot from Detroit;

Born and bred below 8 mile on the Chrysler Freeway and winding up with a Private Catholic University degree, Ted Riot has been there and done that.

With all of the Ups, Downs, Ins, Outs and everything in between, Ted Riot has a Comixx Perspective on all of it.

If you are a Beer-Swillin' Blue Collar Redneck, you can laugh with him. And if you are a High-Class Suit Snob, you can laugh at him.

But either way at the end of the day Laughing you WILL be!

SuperNatural Star with a MotorCityMojo..................

Since 2003, The Comedy Soapbox has changed from a simple website of an indy NYC room to the largest comedy community on the web. The company, founded BY comedians, FOR comedians, was designed to help each other increase the opportunities for living our dreams and developing our art. The hope is that pooling of resources, creative advertising, and the support of the community will create a foundation strong enough to accomplish three things:

1) To always give comedians more stage time to explore and develop.

2) To help expand the public's view or definition of Stand Up Comedy as not just a form of entertainment, but an Art Form.

3) To make Stand Up more accessible for everyone.
