PICTURE THIS!
PICTURE THIS! is a new show from Brandie Posey & Sam Varela: two girls who want to push the boundaries of what a comedy show can be. Picture This! is a live comedy show with stand-ups performing while they are drawn live by some of the best animators, cartoonists, and other artists in Hollywood, CA, SF, NYC and Portland. Picture This! has also debuted in Toronto, New Zealand and Australia! The comedians don’t know what the animators are drawing and the animators don’t know how the comedians will react.

It may be weird.

It may different.

But it will be FUN!

Ian Fidance
Ian Fidance is an offbeat yet upbeat stand up comic & writer from Wilmington, Delaware who calls New York City his home; Brooklyn to be specific, but you can already tell by his mustache.

A delicious cup of tea best drank live, his comedy has been described as "bizarre yet funny" by The Interrobang. A popular guest on SiriusXM radio's "The Bennington Show," he's been featured in the Boston, Brooklyn, and New York Comedy Festivals, written & performed in sketches for Huffington Post, Above Average, and Conde Nast, was commissioned by Nike to write & star in a live media presentation for the unveiling of their "Hyper" line of athletic wear, and made his stand up TV debut on the third season of AXS TV's "Gotham Comedy Live."
Alexis Guerreros
Sydnee Washington
Sydnee Washington
Was born in New York City but spent most of her childhood in Oakland, California. Sydnee was recently honored as an “UpNext” comedian at Comedy Central’s Clusterfest. Sydnee co-hosts a super high energy and hilarious monthly Comedy show in the Lower East Side called 'Hot Box Comedy'--where she consistently wins over the jaded New Yorkers who brave the city’s comedy scene. Her humor and view toward vanity, dating both sexes, and how to party safely as a woman are both unique and refreshing.

A cast member in MTV's international tv show "Vidiots". Has a solo show called "Death of a Bottle Girl". Cohost of the very popular podcast "The UnOfficial Expert”. And has appeared on TruTv VH1 and various YouTube videos for GQ, Cosmo, and Elite Daily.

He co-hosts the monthly TimeOut NY Critic Pick, STEVIE (a comedy show), at Union Hall with Sam Taggart & Marcia Belsky. Drew was a cast member of Handmaids Tale: the Musical, which after a sold-out run in Brooklyn, played at the Kennedy Center for the Bentzen Ball Comedy Festival.

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.

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.

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
