About The Hollywood Hemptress – Tere Joyce
Tere Joyce is best known for her stand-up comedy, having first traveled throughout the United States and Canada performing in comedy clubs and pubs. She is a trained theatre geek since the age of nine. When asked to go out on date in high school her reply was, “I can’t…I have a rehearsal.” She was a Theater Arts major in college, and studied acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
In 2003 Tere Joyce was a top ten finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and also was a competing cast member on the third season. She has written three screenplays in films that were AVN Award nominated and directed by adult filmmaker Erica McLean.
Tere has done voiceover work and improvisational bits on radio shows such as the Jon Melichar Show and Power 106. She has appeared on several internet shows such as, The Free Speech Show, The Damage Report, Porn Star Pundits, and the award winning web series, “Good Job Thanks!”
In 2011, Joyce created and began to host Hollywood Hemptress Hour on New Dissident Radio, and has just recently launched a live streaming video version of the show on the Atomic Comedy Network online. Her next project is to launch her new show “Freedom of Joyce” on the Atomic Comedy Network! The show will explore “freedom” and what that means to us personally and collectively as a society.
Although he did not win in the two seasons he appeared in (Seasons 2 and 3, both in 2004), his humble personality and clean comedy made him a favorite among the show’s fans.
Jay London is known for his long curly hair and bib overalls. His signature line is “You might recognize me, I’m the fourth guy from the left on the evolutionary chart,” referring to his slouching posture and unkempt appearance. His comedy is usually self-deprecating and laden with quips such as “0 for 1″, “This is death!” and his trademark line, “It’s almost over.” During his run on Last Comic Standing, he made a guest appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.
He has also done shows for cancer patients and small comedy clubs. In 2004, Jay made an appearance on the CBS sitcom King of Queens and on the game show Street Smarts; in 2005, he appeared on the TBS reality show Minding the Store and Bravo’s All-Star Reality Reunion.
About Viana Hagiu
Viana Hagiu was a medical marijuana dispensary operator in LA’s San Fernando Valley when on August 25, 2009 the Devonshire Division of the Los Angeles Police Department raided the collective, CannaMed of Northridge. Having all applicable licenses and permits from LA and the State, Viana refuses to take a plea. As a result the LA County DA’s office has dragged this case out for nearly 4 years; all of which has taken a huge toll on Viana’s health, housing and livelihood.
