PICTURE THIS!
PICTURE THIS!
PICTURE THIS! is a new show from Brandie Posey & Sam Varela: two girls who want to push the boundaries of what a comedy show can be. Picture This! is a live comedy show with stand-ups performing while they are drawn live by some of the best animators, cartoonists, and other artists in Hollywood, CA, SF, NYC and Portland. Picture This! has also debuted in Toronto, New Zealand and Australia! The comedians don’t know what the animators are drawing and the animators don’t know how the comedians will react.

It may be weird.

It may different.

But it will be FUN!

Dan Soder
Dan Soder
Originally from Colorado, Dan Soder started doing stand up at 21 while attending the University of Arizona. After two years of playing clubs and casinos all over the southwest, Dan decided he'd had enough of extreme heat and venomous animals, so he moved to New York. Dan has been featured on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, Conan, and appeared on Opie and Anthony. This year, you can see him on Comedy Central's The Half Hour and see his commentary as a cast member on MTV2's Guy Code.
Clare O'Kane
Clare O'Kane
Clare O'Kane is an actress, comedian and writer from San Jose, California. She has performed in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, SF Sketchfest, FunFunFun Fest, and other wonderful, independent festivals around the country, such as:
The Comedy Exposition (Chicago)

Ryan Stiles' Stand Up Summer Slam (Alberta)

She has been described as "sarcastic" and "half-Asian". Along with being a stand up, Clare is also one-third of the sketch group Blessed. They have made a couple of very funny videos, none of which have gone viral. When she's not sneezing or whatever, Clare travels around the country to perform stand-up comedy and "seize the day". She hopes to get that tattooed on her lower back (for free) someday. She currently lives in Los Angeles, California with a guy and a cat.
Monroe Martin
Monroe Martin is a colorful and imaginative comedian with a lifetime of hard knock experiences that have been spun into side-splitting jokes and stories.

Monroe was born and raised in Philadelphia, one usually wouldn't find Monroe's life story laughable. After all, how inappropriate is it to laugh at a foster child who jumped around from one dysfunctional family to another? Sit in the audience of one of Monroe's performances and you'll find yourself laughing at his adversity. Monroe's honest and open approach to joke and storytelling universalizes his experiences.

Monroe's creative and charismatic comedic voice has created a buzz within the New York comedy circuit. His intelligent and hysterical perspective resonates and has earned him respect among his peers.

Monroe is on his way to becoming the type of comedian he admires—one who says exactly what he wants, the way he wants to say it. He idolizes these types of comedians because he realizes that it takes guts to say how you truly feel whether it be right or wrong. It is especially hard to discuss the topics that are considered taboo and/or controversial. By saying what he wants, how he wants, Monroe is creating his legacy of being one of the funniest comedians in America.

Monroe says "All good comedians speak of life experience through their own unique perspectives." Based on his experience, He has the makings of a great comedian, and is well on his way.

You've seen Monroe in the current season of Last Comic Standing. He can also be seen on the upcoming season of Adam Devine's House Party on Comedy Central. Monroe has also been featured on AXS TV's Gotham Comedy Live. For on Monroe log onto www.monroemartincomedy.com or follow him on twitter @monroemartinIII
