Boast Rattle
Boast Rattle
Boast Rattle: A roast-style competitive COMPLIMENT contest. Comedians go head to head seeing who can compliment the other better, and even a lucky crowd member gets to have their day improved with some on-the-spot boasting. With special guest judges and performances throughout.
Kyle Ayers
Kyle Ayers
Kyle Ayers is a comedian, writer, actor, and all of that sort, living in New York City, by way of his hometown near Kansas City, Missouri. He brings his satirical look at growing up in the small town to the big city, with a unique viewpoint on his generation, our childhoods, and daily life. He was featured as a New Face in the illustrious 2015 Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, where Time Out New York heralded him as a "breakout star," saying that "Rural Missouri may have imbued theFirst Comes Love creator with an aw-shucks demeanor... but he has a progressive conviction praised by the likes of Brian Posehn and Canadian SiriusXM’s The Todd Shapiro Show." He will be featured on the upcoming season of "Uproarious" on Fuse.

Matt currently lives in Brooklyn, NY without a wife, kids, or even so much as a pet. Pretty sad stuff.
Josh Gondelman

Josh Gondelman is a writer and comedian who incubated in Boston before moving to New York City, where he currently lives and works as a writer for Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Onstage, Josh charms audiences using his good-natured storytelling and cracks them up with his sharp, pointy wit. He takes topics from surprise parties to his experience teaching preschool and makes them all equally hilarious. This spring, he made his late night standup debut on Conan (TBS), and he can also be seen on the first season of Night Train With Wyatt Cenac (SeeSo). Josh’s newest comedy album Physical Whisper debuted in March at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts (as well as #4 on the Billboard comedy chart) and stayed there for…well…longer than he expected, honestly.
