About the Cast:

Brandon T. Jackson & Girlfriend Denise Xavier:

Brandon T. Jackson always knew he wanted to be an entertainer. Growing up in Detroit, he held the title of class clown and grew his passion for comedy and acting by performing at community talent shows and youth nights at his father's church. Most recognized for his role as Alpha Chino in "Tropic Thunder," his credits also include "Big Momma's House," "Thunderstruck" and "Percy Jackson, The Lightning Thief." When Brandon isn't on set or on the stage, he is home with his girlfriend, Denise Xavier, a dental hygienist, who wants him to step it up in the romance department. With his career on the rise, Brandon must find a way to share the limelight and successfully balance being a partner and performer.

DeRay Davis & Girlfriends Coco and Caro:

Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, DeRay Davis is one of the industry's most in-demand comedians, with film and television credits including "Barbershop," "21 Jump Street," "Wild N Out" and "Empire." While juggling a girlfriend and a career can have its challenges, DeRay is faced with double the trouble - with not one, but two girlfriends, Coco and Caro. The ladies try their best to manage DeRay's larger than life personality, while he attempts to navigate his star power and find time for the women in his life and his teenage daughter Brook.

Michael Blackson & Girlfriend Georgia Reign:

Born in West Africa, Michael Blackson is the self-dubbed "African King of Comedy" with a global roster of performances and comedy specials. Off the stage, there is never a dull moment in Michael's personal life, thanks to his four boys and passionate relationship with Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Georgia Reign. They moved in together after only a few weeks of dating and have been acting like a married couple ever since. Despite his professional success, Michael always wants more, but his family and girlfriend seem to take the front seat.

Erik Rivera & Wife, Katie Rivera:

With quick wit, commanding stage presence, charisma and an infectious smile, Erik Rivera has become a favorite act at comedy clubs, events and colleges across the country. Of Puerto Rican and Guatemalan descent, he jokes that he's not your typical Latino since he grew up in the suburbs of New Rochelle and is "more like a lion who grew up in a zoo." When most standup comedians are going out to the bar after a show, he heads home to be Mr. Mom and catch up on his sleep. Married to his wife Katie for five years, the duo have a three-year-old son. Erik and Katie share a resilient bond; however their relationship will be tested as they juggle their career goals and family responsibilities.

Adam Hunter:

With an act that is brash, deep and hilarious, New York native Adam Hunter headlines across the country putting his heart and soul into every performance. He was a finalist on season six of "Last Comic Standing," and appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Chelsea Lately," "The Late Late Show," among others. A champion wrestler, Adam also has his hand in the sports world with his "MMA Roasted" podcast which he created to provide comedic commentary to the sport. His career success hasn't entirely translated to his personal life and this bachelor is still looking for someone to come home to at night. Adam is on a quest to find out what he's doing wrong in dating and seeks advice from his three-time divorced father and his fellow entertainers.

"Living with Funny" is produced by L. Plummer Media with Lemuel Plummer, Chris Costine and Brandon T. Jackson serving as Executive Producers.
