Night Train with Wyatt Cenac

Night Train with Wyatt Cenac

Hosted by Brooklyn-based comedy favorite Wyatt Cenac (The Daily Show, King of the Hill), 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.

Jean Grae

Jean Grae first performed under the moniker "What? What?" as a member of the indie group Natural Resource, providing classic singles such as "Baseball" and "Bum Deal." Then with her solo efforts: Attack of The Attacking Things, This Week, The Bootleg of the Bootleg and the 9th Wonder produced Jeanius, provided the platform for Jean Grae's ability to fit as many syllables as possible into short time spans. Grae has featured on tracks with Pharoahe Monch, Talib Kweli, The Roots, Wale, Lil B the Based God, Phonte and Joell Ortiz and a long list of others that is impossible to fit into this bio. On a return to demonstrating her own abilities to produce (Jean has produced under the aka's Run Run Shaw and Nasain Nahmeen) as well as direct, Grae released video and song "Kill Screen aka Steve Wiebe" from her upcoming project Gotham Down. Twisting time and space, Jean Grae's much anticipated "Cake or Death" is set to be released second, though it chronologically precedes "Gotham Down" story wise. Her fate was ultimately changed forever with the actualization of Jean's passion for comedy and satire in recent stand up appearances and a self-produced, written and directed sitcom, Life With Jeannie, is in the works. Recently, appearing on the John Hodgman show and Low Times podcast with Daniel Ralston, audiences were treated to her special blend of music and comedy. To sum up, Jean is a superhero. She's better than everyone at doing everything. You should enjoy and support all of the things that she ever does, because she might disintegrate you if you don't.

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.

Desiree Burch

Desiree Burch is a comedian, writer, actress and New York NeoFuturist, and host of the "Smut" Reading and Performance series. Her solo work has culminated in the full-length solo pieces "52 Man Pickup," "The Sit-Down Show," "Careless," and "Greatest Hits." Desiree's shows have been performed at Ars Nova, Joe's Pub, CenterStage NY, P.S. 122, and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Her stand-up comedy has been featured at Carolines on Broadway, Gotham Comedy Club, the NY Improv, New York Comedy Club, Boston Comedy Club, the Producer's Club, the Parkside Lounge, Mo' Pitkins, and New York International Fringe Festival, to name a few.

Taylor Ketchum

A native of La Crescenta California, Taylor Ketchum's journey into the stand up comedy world has been anything but ordinary. A former college football player, Taylor spent most of his 20's in and out of detoxes and various free clinics around the Los Angeles area. After a fated meeting with another comedian in a drug rehab, Taylor lied his way onto a local comedy stage and never looked back. Since then he has brought his unique perspective to audiences around the country, using his unusual background and unique outlook as fodder. Taylor's comedy bridges the gap between the dark, dinginess of America's underbelly and the every day silliness of our conventional routine, “finding the balance between the only man and the every man.”

A co-producer of “The Meaning of Life,” a weekly stand up showcase in the East Village, Taylor can be seen performing nearly every night in New York. He performs regularly at Stand Up NY, Carolines, The Creek and the Cave, The World Famous Comedy Store in Hollywood, Comix at Foxwoods and nearly every bowling alley, bar, and basement in New York. He has been a guest on We're All Friends Here, My Dumb Friends, and Keith and the Girl and is a contributing writer to the ASAP Sketch Group at IO West in Los Angeles. He is a pisces.

John Roy

A recipient of life saving heart surgery, John Roy grew up an only child in Chicago's ethnically diverse Rogers Park neighborhood. John's parents were an ex Jesuit who worked for Chicago's urban Loyola University, and a psychotherapist, who infused a love of the arts and philosophy into the boy from an early age. He repaid their efforts by becoming a stand up comedian. John began his career performing in independent rooms in Chicago. After honing his act in clubs around the Midwest, John competed and was crowned the first champion of CBS' “Star Search,” in 2003. He has performed stand up on numerous television shows, including “The Tonight Show,” “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” and “Last Comic Standing,” where he was a semi-finalist. He made his debut on “Conan,” in 2012. He has appeared numerous times as a panelist on cable networks like VH-1, Fox News, and Fuel TV.
