Aparna Nancherla
Aparna Nancherla
Aparna Nancherla is by and large a comedian, or by and small rather. She has written for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and Late Night with Seth Meyers. You may have caught her standup on Conan and the Comedy Central Half Hour, her face on Master of None and Crashing, and her voice on Bojack Horseman. She was recently named one of Rolling Stone's "50 Funniest People Right Now" and you can see her in 2018 on the upcoming show Corporate on Comedy Central and the new season of Netflix's The Standups.
Jon Fisch
Jon Fisch
(Colbert, Letterman) Jon Fisch has appeared on Letterman, Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, VH1 and more. Shortly after moving to NYC from his native Boston, he was named one of Back Stage Magazine’s 10 Standout Stand-ups. He was handpicked to open for Jerry Seinfeld at Gotham Comedy Club, where he is a regular. You can also catch his stand-up in New York at the World Famous Comic Strip Live and the Comedy Cellar.
Emmy Blotnick
Emmy Blotnick
Emmy Blotnick is a comedian who was named one of Comedy Central's Comics to Watch. She’s currently a writer for The President Show on Comedy Central. Previously she's written for @midnight with Chris Hardwick, The Roast of Rob Lowe, Not Safe with Nikki Glaser and other fun shows.

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.
