JENNY’S BIRTHDAY has been running since December 2016 at Union Hall, Legion Bar, and Artichoke Pizza and featured in the Skint, Comedy Cake, Time Out New York, and the NYTimes.
Jenny Gorelick
Jenny Gorelick
JENNY GORELICK is a comedy producer, performer, and birthday girl who the NYTimes thinks "is really onto something." She celebrates her birthday every month with her long-running variety show JENNY'S BIRTHDAY at Union Hall. In fact, she loves birthdays so much that she had a Sweet Sixteen on the Q Train in a viral video with Improv Everywhere that received 44M views. She was once called an "unassuming gal" by MTV, but we all know that was mistaken. In addition, she produces an all-female stand up comedy show to benefit relief for natural disasters called Her-icane that has raised thousands of dollars and was featured in the NYTimes. Taxi TV's Sandy Kenyon believes she is a "star of tomorrow," and now she can die happy.
Django Gold
Django Gold
Django Gold is a stand up comedian and writer in New York City. Currently he is a writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Formerly a writer at The Onion as well as contributing writer for The New Yorker. Django can be seen performing around NYC.
Vinny DePonto
Vinny DePonto
Is a mentalist, illusionist, and theatre artist with an undying interest in the mysterious. The New York Times has said, “What distinguishes the good magician from the great is the rigor of execution and quality of artistry. Mr. DePonto’s craftsmanship consistently impresses.” In addition to his live performances, DePonto’s consulting work can be seen on Broadway in Angels in America, in Lincoln Center’s Ghostlight, and in television shows on The Discovery Channel, NBC, and Netflix.
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.
Kristen Buckels
Kristen Buckels
Kristen Buckels is comedian, writer and producer based in Brooklyn. She is the co-creator with Lacey Jeka of the web series Between Two Bushes that launches this summer. Kristen has most recently produced work for Chris Gethard, Colin Quinn, Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Hasan Minhaj, Neal Brennan and Mike Birbiglia in live theater and television. You can find her doing stand up throughout the city or making pros/cons lists over daily tasks at your local coffee shop. Photo cred. David Bluvband
