Lorelei Ramirez
Lorelei Ramirez
Lorelei Ramirez is an artist, comedian, and writer residing in New York where she is attempting to do everything she can before I dies because dying is scary and who will see through these eyes when she's done? An ill tempered demon? She hosts a Monthly show at C'mon Everybody in Bedstuy called Not Dead Yet and another monthly show at Vital Joint called Sloop Jumbly. Follow her on @pileoftears for laughs and @pileoftears_art for some artwork.
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.
Karen Chee
