Night Train with Wyatt Cenac
Hosted by Brooklyn-based comedy favorite Wyatt Cenac, Night Train show features comedy from the best local and international stand up comedians, and--at times--special guest appearances by musicians, local celebrities, and the occasional surprise only found in Gowanus.
On June 30, NBC’s comedy streaming platform Seeso will release six episodes of Night Train. Filmed in November of 2015, the show features regular performers from the live show like Aparna Nancherla, Brooke Van Poppelen, Clark Jones, Eugene Mirman, Hari Kondabolu, Janelle James, Jeffrey Joseph, Jen Kirkman, Jo Firestone, Jon Benjamin, Josh Gondelman, Kurt Braunohler, Maeve Higgins, Matteo Lane, Michelle Buteau, Michelle Wolf, Natasha Muse, Phoebe Robinson, Sabrina Jalees, Seaton Smith, and more!
Seeso is available for $3.99 per month and provides users access to a wide selection of new comedies as well as many comedy properties from the NBC catalog such as SNL, 30 Rock and Monty Python's Flying Circus. Basically a visual textbook, if you were planning to attend Emerson College and major in comedy... which is a thing a person can do.
Night Train on Seeso is Executive Produced by Wyatt Cenac and Marianne Ways. Produced by Avalon Television, with David Martin, Jon Thoday, and Richard Allen-Turner also Executive Producing.

She trained in the Chicago area and performed as an understudy for The Second City’s Mainstage and touring company. Additionally, Vanessa starred in the acerbic puppet show "Felt" and the improv team "Revolver" at iO Chicago, wrote and performed in the Annoyance Theatre’s "Swear Jar", and performed stand-up at Zanies.
Mike Stanley is all of these things, but none, when put on paper, quite manage to serve the justice dealt by Stanley onstage. Yeah, he’s pretty hilarious, but more than just coarse anecdotes about life and sex, there’s an enviable amount of heart and warmth behind Stanley’s humor. Given his penchant toward brutal honesty, spiced up with a healthy dose of insatiable wit, it’s not difficult to see why Stanley was named “Best Chicago Stand-up Comedian” in a Peoples Choice poll done by the Chicago Reader and ranked in the top 10 of the best comedians in Chicago by a poll on Comedy.com. Originally hailing from Detroit, he’s a Windy City transplant who tours constantly, both domestically and internationally. Don’t miss out on an incredible opportunity to catch the man in action – this high level of killer stand-up is too remarkable to sit out.

Amongst other works, Ari Shaffir is probably most well-known for a series of comedy works entitled "The Amazing Racist," the title is a play on that of the reality television show The Amazing Race. In these shorts, "The Amazing Racist" is seen acting in a manner which is overtly and ironically racist. Shaffir filmed many of his offensive encounters for the DVD National Lampoon's Lost Reality. They were then ripped to the internet by hundreds of different nerds and seen by millions of people. Watching the videos makes many people laugh and many people very angry. Shaffir gets death threats at least once a week and loves them all. If you haven’t seen the videos, Google him. Please don’t watch them at work because you’ll get fired. Shaffir has also been featured on the HBO show Down and Dirty with Jim Norton, TBS’ show Minding the Store, ESPN Classic’s Cheap Seats: Without Ron Parker, Latino Laugh Festival on Si TV, has made a few appearances on The Opie and Anthony Show, including the greatest day of radio of all time, Babybird, and you probably have seen him on one of the dozens of national commercials he has whored himself in over the years.
