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.
Brooklyn resident (and Russian immigrant) Eugene Mirman is a really great guy and comedian. Eugene has appeared on television, which is still a relevant medium for another few years. Some examples include: his own half hour special on Comedy Central, appearances on Conan O’Brien, a recurring role on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords, Bob's Burgers, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Home Movies, Lucy, Daughter of the
Devil and the Adult Swim live action series Delocated.

On his 20th birthday, Jermaine Fowler, moved to New York City from Washington D.C. with a small suitcase and big dreams. Soon after, he was being acknowledged in the New York Post's 50 Funniest Jokes alongside David Letterman and Jay Leno. He's performed in festivals across the country like the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival where he won the Rooftop Comedy Silver Nail Award. He's also performed as a finalist in NBC's Stand Up for Diversity and is currently on tour with Comedy Central. He is regularly featured on CollegeHumor.com and you may recognize him in commercials for SoBe Lifewater, Bud Light, Scion (Comedy Central), and Microsoft Bing. Jermaine was recently chosen by ABC to act in their 10th Annual Diversity Showcase. Now 24, you can catch Jermaine on SyFy's brand new series "Insane or Inspired", Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show, and the reboot of In Living Color coming this June.
Guy Branum is a writer and comedian best known for serving as “Staff Homosexual” on Chelsea Lately and his performance as Natalie Portman’s sassy gay friend in No Strings Attached. Noticing a trend? He is currently a staff writer on Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and has appeared on E!, MTV, G4, CurrentTV and lots of other channels you’d need to upgrade your cable to watch. He’s also a writer for the new season of Punk’d on MTV and Fashion Police on E!. That means he’s watched the Grammys at Joan Rivers’s house. Jealous? Guy also writes for the “Gay Voices” section of The Huffington Post and occasionally makes web vidoes where he dances around without his shirt on. But mostly, Guy is very, very beautiful and good at having sex.
Billy Wayne Davis
Billy Wayne Davis is what you would get if Lenny Bruce, Bill Cosby and Foghorn Leghorn had a baby, only he doesn't look like some kind of horrible mutant. Originally from Nashville, TN, he has been touring all over the country for the better part of a decade, winning audiences over with a combination of humor both cutting and absurd that puts him pretty squarely into a league of his own. He has worked with some of the biggest names in comedy, including Colin Quinn, Lisa Lampanelli, Louis CK and Mitch Hedberg and has toured as the feature act for national headliner Ralphie May. He has performed festivals, comedy clubs and theaters as diverse as Seattle's Bumbershoot, The Ryman in Nashville, the now defunct alt haven Rififi in New York City, the Comedy Works in Denver and the LA Improv.
RG began performing stand-up in December, 2002. Since then he has been featured at the New Orleans Comedy & Arts Festival, the New York Underground Comedy Festival, and the Staten Island Comedy Festival. In addition, RG has served as a creative contributor for The Radio Chick, airing on both FM and satellite radio stations, as well as writing for the humor web site Black20.com. With a blend of street-smart sarcasm and social commentary RG is quickly becoming one of the freshest voices on the NYC scene. Audiences have applauded his onstage charm and quick wit, often the formula for a hysterically memorable stand-up experience.
