It's A Guy Thing
Mitra Jouhari, Catherine Cohen, and Patti Harrison are three gals who just don't get "guy stuff." They've invited some of the best comedians around town to give them lectures on guy stuff so that they can finally fit in.
THIS MONTH, a portion of proceeds will go to benefit the two planned Planned Parenthood locations in Louisiana.

Sudi Green is a comedian living in Brooklyn and writer for Saturday Night Live. You can see her as the co-host of her sketch/variety show Theme Party at the UCBeast theatre with Becky Chicoine. In 2015, Sudi was selected as a Just For Laughs New Face for characters. She is a proud member of sketch groups Pop Roulette, O.S.F.U.G. and alumni of HammerkatzNYU. Sudi is Iranian which is why she tans so well and is from Newark, DE which is why she cares about tanning.
Sydnee Washington was born in New York City but spent most of her childhood in Oakland, California. She has a laid back approach to life which makes the bite to her comedy only slightly more palatable. Sydnee co-hosts a super high energy and consistently funny monthly Comedy show in the Lower East Side called 'The Warm Up.' There she hones her skills for the various spots and hosting gigs she has 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.
Steven Phillips-Horst is an artist and brand strategist. He hosts a raucous monthly comedy show, TALK HOLE, called "one of the only comedy shows in New York worth seeing," by the FADER.

His work has been featured in GQ, the FADER, Pitchfork, Vogue and elsewhere. He can recently be seen in Comedy Central's BROAD CITY.
