Arguably one of the hardest working women in comedy today, Tammy Pescatelli brings brassy sexiness with a female voice of witty sarcasm to her audiences, holding her own on the topics of sports, television, dating and family life using tongue-in-cheek humor. She is one of the only female comedians who is relatable to every audience member-male & female. After seeing her perform, nearly everyone wishes she was their best friend or sister!
Tammy’s most recent one-hour special, the top downloaded, Finding The Funny (available on Netflix & iTunes) is just one of her new and noteworthy endeavors. Including recent big appearances on The View and The Howard Stern Show and her being chosen by Jenny McCarthy & Donnie Wahlberg to be a part of their Dirty, Sexy, Funny franchise that included a hilarious all-female slate of standup comedians comedy special on EPIX/Hulu, a touring show and a pilot for A&E.

It solidified her as one of the sharpest women in the comedy world!

Jackie Kashian's comedy is like listening to a really racy episode of All Things Considered. She is comic, writer, and occasional actor... she just did her first late night set on the Conan O’Brien show, has a half hour special on Comedy Central and has recorded an episode of This American Life with Ira Glass, Her latest CD, "It Is Never Going To Be Bread" was one of the top ten comedy albums of the year on Amazon. She hosts a weekly cult fave podcast called "The Dork Forest" where she creates a safe space for people to admit that thing they dork out about more than anyone.
Witty. Clever. Likable. Hilarious.
These have all been used to describe comedian Keith Alberstadt.
For over a decade, Keith has been entertaining comedy fans all over the world -- club audiences in the U.S., expats in Asia, as well as U.S. troops throughout the Middle East. Simply put, his style of comedy is one that pulls everyone in. Whether it’s his sarcastic approach, his playful attitude, or his good old-fashioned southern charm, Keith makes his comedy relatable and approachable.
Growing up the youngest of four in a close-knit Catholic family in Nashville, Keith quickly developed a sense of humor and a love for making others laugh. When he co-hosted the high school talent show at the age of 18, he found his calling. But first there was college, then a job at Vanderbilt as the sideline reporter for the football team’s radio broadcasts. As a die-hard Vandy fan, it was a dream gig! While it was difficult to bite his tongue on the air and avoid FCC fines, it was even more difficult to break away and do his own thing. But eventually he did.
Since leaving the office world behind, it’s been non-stop for Keith. Starting at his home club Zanies, he’s worked all over the country and now calls New York City home. Along the way, he built a solid career that includes such credits as ...
