Aparna Nancherla
Aparna Nancherla
Aparna Nancherla is delighted you are here. She’s a comedian of the stand-up variety, but can often be seen sitting. She recently wrote for LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS on NBC. You can also see her on the current season of INSIDE AMY SCHUMER on COMEDY CENTRAL and on the upcoming season of LOVE on NETFLIX. In addition, she currently hosts the long-running popular underground New York comedy show, WHIPLASH at the UPRIGHT CITIZEN’S BRIGADE THEATER on Monday nights at 11 p.m.

Her artistic journey took off in Washington D.C. (it’s all about the Washingtons), but she now resides in the biggest apple in the gosh darn world. Aparna’s sense of humor tends toward the dry, observational variety, but do be warned, her act runs rampant with absurdism and unregulated whimsy. Other credits include writer and performer on TOTALLY BIASED WITH W. KAMAU BELL and appearances on CONAN on TBS, MELTDOWN WITH JONAH AND KUMAIL, @MIDNIGHT, and ADAM DEVINE’S HOUSE PARTY on COMEDY CENTRAL, NBC’s LAST COMIC STANDING, SEESO’s NIGHT TRAIN WITH WYATT CENAC and ROOFTOP COMEDY’S LIVE FROM THE BARREL HOUSE, VH1’S I LOVE THE 2000S, TRUTV’S HOW TO BE A GROWN UP and FRIENDS OF THE PEOPLE, and FUSE’S WHITE GUY TALK SHOW. She has also done videos for ABOVE AVERAGE, REFINERY29, FUNNY OR DIE, SLATE V, and MTV OTHER.

In addition to being a 2013 New Face at the prestigious JUST FOR LAUGHS COMEDY FESTIVAL in Montreal, she has also been on numerous lists such as VULTURE‘S “50 COMEDIANS YOU SHOULD KNOW IN 2015”, MARIE CLAIRE‘S FUNNIEST WOMEN OF 2015, TIME MAGAZINE‘S 140 TOP TWEETERS OF 2014, JEZEBEL’S COMEDY QUEENS OF 2014, TIME OUT NY’S “10 FUNNIEST WOMEN IN NEW YORK”, FLAVORPILL’S “11 ESSENTIAL YOUNG COMEDIANS IN NEW YORK CITY”, LA WEEKLY‘S “12 COMEDY ACTS TO WATCH”, SERIAL OPTIMIST’S “10 COMICS YOU MUST KNOW”, and SPLITSIDER’S “10 UP-AND-COMING COMEDIANS ON EACH COAST”. She has also been featured in LAUGHSPIN, BUST MAGAZINE, COSMOPOLITAN, ELLE INDIA, READER’S DIGEST, THE HUFFINGTON POST, and THE WASHINGTON POST MAGAZINE.

You may have heard Aparna on the WTF PODCAST WITH MARC MARON, the NERDIST PODCAST WITH CHRIS HARDWICK, NPR’S “WAIT, WAIT…DON’T TELL ME!”, RADIO Q on CBC, or seen her at countless festivals such as the MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FESTIVAL IN AUSTRALIA, SXSW, SF SKETCHFEST, OUTSIDELANDS, the BRIDGETOWN COMEDY FESTIVAL, and the GREAT AMERICAN COMEDY FESTIVAL. Comics Aparna has been humbly delighted to open for include John Oliver, Tig Notaro, Paul F. Tompkins, Eugene Mirman, Maria Bamford, Kurt Braunohler & Kristen Schaal, Dave Attell, Rob Delaney, Christian Finnegan, Tom Green, Eddie Brill, Hari Kondabolu, Myq Kaplan, and Chris D’Elia.

Langston Kerman
Langston Kerman
Langston Kerman is a stand up comedian, actor, tongue kisser and writer (in that order). He was a writer for Chris Rock and the 2016 Academy Awards, as well as the upcoming Comedy Central Show Problematic with Moshe Kasher. He was recently selected as a New Face in the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, QC. He has appeared on Comedy Central, IFC and The Oxygen Network (don't judge). And he can currently be seen as that one light-skinned dude on the new series Insecure on HBO. Langston wishes he had even more credits to impress you with; unfortunately, he does not. Maybe you should just accept Langston for who he is. He really is trying his best.
May Wilkerson
May Wilkerson
May Wilkerson is a standup comedian and staff writer at Someecards, where she creates clickable content to help distract you from your own terrifying thoughts (a civil servant of sorts). She’s originally from outside of Boston, but would be a New Yorker at heart if she had one. You may have seen her on Lifetime, performing at bars and clubs all over the city, or by the snack table at a party sneaking chips into her bag for later. Her writing has appeared in the Huffington Post, TheFix and Salon.
