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.

Joe Zimmerman
Praised for an accessible style pairing absurdism with a wide-eyed, aw-shucks demeanor, 2013 was a big year for New York City-based comedian Joe Zimmerman. In addition to making his Comedy Central debut on John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show, he made his late night debut on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and was chosen as one of the acclaimed New Faces at Just For Laughs Montreal. Buzzfeed named him a top comic to watch, saying “…Joe’s calming vocalization and inventive writing is a thing of magic.” and “You’d be hard pressed to find a more enjoyable show.”

In 2014 he recorded a Half Hour Special which aired on Comedy Central July 25th, as well as being a featured performer on Season 8 of Last Comic Standing, where he drew praise from Roseanne & Russell Peters. 2014 also saw the release of his debut solo album, “Smiling at Wolves” which reached #2 on the i-Tunes comedy charts.

Joe is an original member of the Beards of Comedy, who toured from 2008-2012 and recorded two albums. Joe grew up in Morgantown, WV and graduated from Davidson College in 2005.
