Description: The weekly national radio show and podcast, “Naked and Fearless”, with hosts Dan Cummins (Tonight Show, Comedy Central Presents), Tom Saunders (Arrested Development), and Doug Mellard (Last Comic Standing) come to you live with their ruthless tales all about being naked and fearless.

Dan Cummins: Over the past few years, Dan’s absurd observations and dark autobiographical stand-up has been featured on The Late, Late Show, The Tonight Show, Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central Presents Dan Cummins, in his own one hour Comedy Central special, “Crazy With A Capital F”, and on several other nationally televised programs. He’s also provided guest commentary for shows like G4’s “The International Sexy Lady Show”, and, material from his two CDs, released nationally by Warner Brothers – “Crazy with a Capital F”, and “Revenge is Near” – have been played heavily on satellite and internet radio, after both debuted in the top ten on the Billboard Comedy Chart. Dan has toured North America heavily, headlining shows in all 48 continental states, Alaska, and across Canada. He’s also been a favorite on the college circuit, booking hour plus performances at over 250 colleges since 2006. No stranger to the festival circuit, Dan’s also performed at the world’s most prestigious comedy festivals, including numerous shows at the Montreal Comedy Festival, the Aspen Comedy Festival, the HBO Las Vegas Comedy Festival, and many more. Recently, Dan moved to Los Angeles, and, after a few months, landed a starring role in the upcoming indie feature film, “Trunk’d”. He’s also been busy with auditions and meetings for various television projects, many of which he’s helped create. Currently, after already having released two full length comedy CDs only one year apart, Dan is building his next hour of comedy, performing at venues across the country, and hoping to be appearing on your TV on a weekly basis very, very soon. To keep up with Dan, you can follow his daily joke updates on Twitter and on Facebook, and his weekly Youtube video uploads. Links to all of these things, and to current news, can all be found on the homepage of www.dancummins.tv . Dan lives in LA with his girlfriend Kristin and their fish Buddy Jr. His two children, Kyler and Monroe, also spend time in LA every month enjoying annual passes to the LA Zoo and Disneyland, when they are not with their mother in Spokane, Washington. Life is good.

Doug Mellard: After abandoning the professional jump rope circuit with a torn ACL and a broken ego, Doug decided to grab a mic and hit the stage in 2003.  Austin audiences were soon treated to an unprecedented brand of rapid-fire, topic-jumping humor that gets laughs where others take breaths. In May 2006 he was voted “Funniest Person in Austin” at the Capitol City Comedy Club by a panel of judges comprised of Comedy Central, “The Tonight Show,” and “Montreal Comedy Festival” representatives.  In 2006, he also made it to the semi-finals of NBC’S “Last Comic Standing Season 4” and later appeared again on “Last Comic Standing Season 6” and Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” as well as the “South Beach Comedy Festival.” Doug, never one to rest between punch lines, has been steadfastly writing and laughing his way up the creative chain-of-command.  Expect Doug Mellard to continue delivering rapid-fire laughs as he moves his career forward to larger horizons including coast-to-coast road dates and more national TV exposure.  His comedic energy is infectious, and he is eager to spread it as whole-heartedly as he feels it.
