Night Train with Wyatt Cenac

Other TV credits include Curb Your Enthusiasm, 30 Rock, and Wonder Showzen. Film credits include Be Kind Rewind, The Dictator, and Pootie Tang.

Writing credits include Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Dana Carvey Show, Human Giant, and Cheap Seats. His writing has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Spin, The Onion A.V. Club, and on-line for New York Magazine, MTV, and Bicycling. You can read his book if you'd like, My Dead Dad Was In ZZ Top, which was published by Harper Perennial.
Myq Kaplan recently made his debut on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien,” his half-hour “Comedy Central Presents” special debuted earlier this year, and he was recently a Top 5 finalist on the most recent season of Last Comic Standing. He has also appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” at the New Faces show of the 2009 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, was voted 2008’s Best Local Comedian in the Boston Phoenix, and won the 2009 NY’s Funniest Standup Competition.

She has appeared on Inside Amy Schumer, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, ABC's Would You Fall For That, and This American Life. She co-created and co-starred in the webseries Pursuit of Sexiness, which was named one of the Top 10 Web Series of 2013 by Variety, and part of Glamour's 7 Web Series We Can't Stop Watching in 2015.
Sasheer has been listed in Cosmopolitan's 13 Funny Women to Watch in 2014, Time Out New York's Top 10 Funniest Women in NYC in 2014, Brooklyn Magazine's 50 Funniest People in Brooklyn, and Complex Magazine's Women in Comedy You Should Be Paying Attention to Right Now in 2015.

Andy Haynes was raised on salmon and caffeine, in the shadows of Mt. Rainier in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest. He now lives in Los Angeles, where he is a comedian, though he looks like he should be skippering a sailing regatta. With performances on Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and the New Faces showcase at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, Andy is becoming a must see performer.
Named Best Stand-Up Comedian by the HBO/U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Al Madrigal’s comedy has been called “dynamic” by The New York Times. His unique, spontaneous and fast-paced lyrical storytelling style has made him a regular on television with numerous appearances on Comedy Central including his own half-hour Comedy Central Presents Special and appearances on John Oliver’s New York Stand-up Show and Pretend Time with Nick Swardson. Al has also appeared with Conan O’Brien (as one of the first 20 guests during his stint as host of “The Tonight Show,” and on “Conan” on TBS) as well as multiple appearances on “Lopez Tonight,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Al also has his share of acting credits. He has appeared on CBS’s “Welcome to the Captain” with Jeffrey Tambor and “Gary, Unmarried” with Jay Mohr. Cheech Marin (Cheech and Chong) played his father on a sitcom, “The Ortegas,” that was set to debut on Fox in 2003 in the time slot after “The Simpsons” before it was shelved at the last minute. Most recently, Al has been cast in the upcoming sitcom “Free Agents” on NBC.
