Julia Claire
Julia is a Boston-based comedian whose parents are still hoping she will one day become a lobbyist. She began doing stand-up in the summer of 2014, and since then has quickly become a staple in the Boston comedy scene, pedaling her sharp, almost always self-deprecating jokes to clubs and colleges all over the East Coast and beyond. She has performed in the Boston Comedy Festival, the Limestone Comedy Festival and the Brooklyn Comedy Festival and has opened for Aparna Nancherla, Beth Stelling, Aidy Bryant and Gina Yashere. She has been featured on NPR's You're the Expert and Nerdist's Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction.

Jordan Temple
Jordan Temple
I do stand-up. I do improv comedy. I used to be a ninja. I still am but I used to, too.
Brandon Collins
Brandon Collins
Brandon Collins is an up-and-coming stand-up comedian and producer. He began doing stand-up comedy in high school but didn’t pursue it further until 2011 when he completed all of his goals in regards to higher education (Masters in School Counseling, what?!!). He has performed at clubs all over NYC and has also been producing shows and private events for over two years to much success under “Collins Events”. Comedy has always been ingrained in his DNA and “Comedy Outliers” is a living proof of that!
Veronica Garza

Since moving to NYC from Dallas, Texas, Veronica Garza, she has performed at Broadway Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, QED, and many other alternative spots around NYC. She’s been on MTV, TMZ, been featured in The Daily Mail, and on NPR. Her acerbic wit and energetic stage presence make Veronica a unique force in the local scene. Her comedy is fresh, upbeat, unexpected and helps you take life, or yourself, not so seriously.
