He also co-wrote and starred in the IFC Channel showDo Whatever, as well as a series of national commercials including: Taco Bell, Honda and Miller Light. He was named a "New Face" and "Best of the Fest" performer at the 2011 Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Fest as well as being invited to the New York, Boston, and Underground Comedy Festivals.

Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting
Since their immaculate conception the devout duo of Leah Rudick and Katie Hartman has been tearing up the NYC comedy circuit, performing at such notable venues as Upright Citizens Brigade, Caroline's on Broadway, and the People's Improv Theater. Festivals include: Los Angeles Comedy Festival, Ladies Are Funny Festival, Women in Comedy Festival, FRIGID New York Festival, and Brooklyn Underground Comedy Festival. Most recently they returned from a heralded month-long run at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival with their show "Misery Eats Company" where, among other rave reviews, they were named "Biggest Revelation" in The Guardian.
Andrew Short is a boyish-looking man confused by the world he lives in. Through a cheerfully misanthropic worldview, he hammers thunderously on pop culture, suburbia, and self-righteous soccer moms. Andrew affably deconstructs personal and public problems, managing to be convincing without being preachy. Part rant, part playful, he’s quick talking, quick-witted, and quick with the jabs at both society and himself. Andrew has performed at SXSW, San Francisco Sketch Fest, Stand Up! Records Akumal Comedy Festival, the Boston Comedy Festival; and has been featured on Sirius XM, 24/7 Comedy, CollegeHumor.com and ComedyCentral.com.
Kat Burdick (panelist) is a stand-up and Moth Grandslam Winner who performs at bars and clubs all over New York. Her web series, KCK, premieres this month.
I do stand-up comedy in the Washington DC/Baltimore area. When I am sitting at (real) work I cannot do stand-up comedy, so I'll maybe sometimes do this instead.
Matt Wayne is an extremely funny comedian from Buffalo, New York, who now lives in New York City. He’s been touring the country as a comic since his early 20s, has been featured in Atlanta’s Laughing Skull Festival, and currently puts on one of the craziest, funniest shows in New York City. He and fellow comic Doug Smith host See You in Hell at The Creek in Long Island City on the first Saturday of every month. Matt’s dad is named Willy Wayne, who is a hilarious retired dude.
