Dulcé Sloan
Dulcé Sloan
Offering a fresh and honest perspective that’s rare to find, Dulcé Sloan is the newest Correspondent on "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" . She was named one of TimeOut LA's Top Comics to Watch for 2017 and and the Winner of the 2016 Big Sky Comedy Festival . She was honored as the 2015 NBC Stand Up Showcase Winner and as a 2015 Montreal Just For Laughs New Face.She made her late-night debut last year on Late with Conan O'Brien and her day-time debut as a "Comedian You Should Know" on the Steve Harvey Show. She can be seen on Greatest Ever and Comedy Knock Out on truTV. Dulcé's signature sass and confidence drives her hilarious views on everything from her personal relationships to the absurdities of society.
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”

FESTIVAL APPEARANCES:

New York Arab American Comedy Festival (2008-2015)
Amman Standup Comedy Festival (2009)
Just For Laughs Festival (2010, 2012 + 2014)

Jess Salomon
Jess Salomon
is a Canadian comedian who recently made the move to New York with her Muslim wife because she has excellent comedic timing. Since making the move, Jess was selected to be a 2017 StandUP NBC finalist and had her stand up featured on SiriusXM’s Raw Dog. She’s done lots of cool festivals in America like the Laughing Skull Festival, San Francisco Sketch Fest and the Boston Comedy Festival.

In Canada she’s been in Just for Laugh’s OFF JFL, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and on CBC’s “The Debaters”. Her stand up has aired on CBC Television and can be heard on SiriusXM’s “Canada Laughs” and CBC’s “LOL”.

Fun fact: before comedy Jess used to be a U.N. war crimes lawyer. The jury is still out on whether this was a good move
Yedoye Travis
Yedoye Travis
Yedoye Travis is a stand up comedian, writer, and actor from Atlanta, GA. In 2017 he was named a New Face at the Montreal Just For Laughs festival, during which he opened for W. Kamau Bell and taped for Kevin Hart's LOL Network. He has since appeared on Search Party, Comedy Central, and Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and contributed content for MTV. He has also performed at the Hell Yes and Bridgetown Comedy festivals and appeared on the fourth season of Coming to the Stage. His debut album, OK, produced by Comedy Dynamics, was released on January 12th, 2018.
