The Jukebox
The Jukebox
Hosted by Steve(s) Heisler & Jacobs and Margaret Lyons

At New York's only monthly sing-along comedy show, entertainers of all stripes gather to steep comedy and karaoke into Union Hall like a delicious, soothing tea. Each guest performs a piece inspired by a song—be it a story, stand-up, sketch, or something in-between—after which they karaoke their hearts out to said song.

The Jukebox scratches the collective comedy/storytelling/singing in public itch, while simultaneously fulfilling the co-hosts' desire to make karaoke part of everyone's life, whether they like it or not.
Reformed Whores
Reformed Whores
Debut album Ladies Don't Spit now available on iTunes!

The musical comedy duo Reformed Whores, fronted by Marie Cecile Anderson and Katy Frame, have been lassoing hearts throughout the NYC comedy scene. These southern belles sing about everything from venereal diseases to drunk dialing with sweet harmonies and old-timey wit.
Eliot Glazer & Jackie Mancini
Eliot Glazer & Jackie Mancini
ELIOT GLAZER + JACKIE MANCINI are best friends. Eliot is a writer, comedian and the creator of two popular web series, It Gets Betterish and Eliot's Sketch Pad. Jackie's childhood diagnosis of Oppositional Defiant Disorder is possibly related to her current position as Associate Editor and only female employee at Guyspeed.

Branson moved from Centreville, VA to New York in 2008, and has studied sketch and improv with the likes of Russ Armstrong, Anthony Atamaniuk, Alan Fessenden, Shannon O'Neill, Peter McNerney, Julie Klausner, Joe Wengert, and Zach Woods. In addition to being the secret, name-ruining third member of We're Matt Weir, he was a founding member of The Great Samaritans (San Francisco Sketch Fest 2011) and hosts a monthly variety show at the PIT. You can see him shouting and flailing his long, delicate, almost deer-like limbs in elementary schools all across the greater New York City area with Story Pirates, where he works as an actor, director, and puppeteer. When not performing he works as a babysitter. (Parents, mention this performer page for his discounted hourly rate!)
