Dulcé Sloan
Noah Gardenswartz
Noah Gardenswartz
Always relaxed on stage with a wide range of material and a unique perspective on life, Noah Gardenswartz is a comedian you should know about.

Noah was born and raised in Denver, but cut his comedy teeth in the diverse rooms of Atlanta. Currently living in Brooklyn, Gardenswartz’s well-crafted mix of jokes, observations, and personal stories have made him a New York City favorite, and a nationally booked up-and-comer.

In 2016, Noah had his own half hour special on Comedy Central, and also released his debut comedy album, “Blunt,” on Comedy Central Records. He has appeared on Conan, Comedy Central’s “Adam Devine’s House Party,” and in 2015 he was a semi-finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.”

He has written for truTV’s “Comedy Knockout,” and also appears regularly as a panelist on the show. Before turning to stand-up full time, Gardenswartz worked as a journalist, hedge fund day
trader, elementary school teacher, and even grew weed, though obviously not all at once.
Jane Harrison
Jane Harrison
Jane Harrison got her start in San Francisco, but was lured to Chicago by the promise of hot dogs and orgasms. She found at least one of those things on a consistent basis. Her frank material, delivered in her smoky radio voice, only makes people uncomfortable who deserve to be uncomfortable. For everyone else, her act is a feet-up, hair-down, mic-drop tour de farce. She's performed in SF Sketchfest, at Cobb's Comedy Club, the San Francisco Punch Line, and the Outside Lands Music Festival. She's currently in talks with a guy at a bar who makes her nervous.
Eudora Peterson
Eudora Peterson
Eudora is a comedian from New Jersey, but she performs in New York because the rules there are much more lax. For example: in New York, you can be a prop comic and people will still respect you, even if you don't have credits. That said, she's been featured on Splitsider, Jezebel, The Huffington Post, and she's *never* used a prop during a performance. Never.
Eman El-Husseini
Eman El-Husseini
Since her comedy debut Eman El-Husseini has racked up an impressive list of credits.

Traveling across Canada, the U.S and the Middle East she covers a wide range of topics, from how lesbians are the new gentlemen to her parents’ wedding anniversary landing on, you guessed it, September 11th.

The Montreal Gazette describes her as “Fearless and ferociously funny” and named her “The queen of Montreal comedy”

Yedoye Travis
Yedoye Travis
Yedoye Travis is a comedian from Atlanta, currently based in New York. He was named a New Face at the 2017 Just For Laughs Festival and has also performed at Bridgetown and Hell Yes Comedy Fests and has appeared on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Hulu's Coming to the Stage and on season 2 of Search Party. He also co-hosts Rent Party, a comedy and music variety show, every third Wednesday at Union Hall.

Farah Brook
Farah Brook
