An Evening of Prepared Crowdwork with Kyle Ayers and Friends
An Evening of Prepared Crowdwork with Kyle Ayers and Friends
Kyle Ayers has attempted to perfect the art of crowdwork by preparing all of it well before the show. With special guests he can’t wait to announce, performing stand up and whatever else they may.
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.
Julio Torres
Julio Torres
Julio Torres is a New York City comedian originally from El Salvador. He is a writer for Saturday Night Live and his standup has been featured on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Julio's Half Hour standup special will air on Comedy Central this fall.
Jean Grae
Jean Grae
Jean Grae first performed under the moniker "What? What?" as a member of the indie group Natural Resource, providing classic singles such as "Baseball" and "Bum Deal." Then with her solo efforts: Attack of The Attacking Things, This Week, The Bootleg of the Bootleg and the 9th Wonder produced Jeanius, provided the platform for Jean Grae's ability to fit as many syllables as possible into short time spans. Grae has featured on tracks with Pharoahe Monch, Talib Kweli, The Roots, Wale, Lil B the Based God, Phonte and Joell Ortiz and a long list of others that is impossible to fit into this bio. On a return to demonstrating her own abilities to produce (Jean has produced under the aka's Run Run Shaw and Nasain Nahmeen) as well as direct, Grae released video and song "Kill Screen aka Steve Wiebe" from her upcoming project Gotham Down. Twisting time and space, Jean Grae's much anticipated "Cake or Death" is set to be released second, though it chronologically precedes "Gotham Down" story wise. Her fate was ultimately changed forever with the actualization of Jean's passion for comedy and satire in recent stand up appearances and a self-produced, written and directed sitcom, Life With Jeannie, is in the works. Recently, appearing on the John Hodgman show and Low Times podcast with Daniel Ralston, audiences were treated to her special blend of music and comedy. To sum up, Jean is a superhero. She's better than everyone at doing everything. You should enjoy and support all of the things that she ever does, because she might disintegrate you if you don't.



Blair Socci
Blair Socci
BLAIR SOCCI is an NYC-based comedian from Southern California. She recently starred in the MTV series, LADYLIKE, and on the new comedy series for FUSE TV, UPROARIOUS. This past year she also served as creative consultant for Guy Code vs. Girl Code on MTV and also appeared on the show. She is the host of the podcast, How To Be a Beefy Woman, and was recently named to Bustle’s Class of 2017 Comedians to Watch. She was also a New Face at the Just For Laughs Festival 2017.

When she isn’t watching Vanderpump Rules, you can find Blair performing nightly at some of the best clubs and alternative shows in town. Blair has also been lucky to perform alongside some of her favorite comics at the New York Comedy Festival, Brooklyn Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival, Limestone Comedy Festival, Laughing Skull Festival, CROM Comedy Festival, Red Clay Comedy Festival, and Chicago Comedy Exposition. Once a month, she co-hosts a popular show, NACHO BITCHES, at New York Comedy Club that she co-founded with Corinne Fisher of Guys We F*cked fame. Blair holds an MFA in creative writing from The New School and a Bachelors of English from UCLA – which as it turns outs out, she only got to list in this bio as you do not need any degrees to be a comedian.
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.
