This event is 21 and over
unlike other child stars, didn't wind up with an "E! True Hollywood Story" chronicling self-destructive fits and other mishaps and meltdowns. Tamberelli was 11 when he starred in the quirky Nickelodeon show "The Adventures of Pete & Pete." On the set, the young actor/musician had his amp blown up by Iggy Pop, got served ice-cream from Michael Stipe and traded CD's with Steve Buscemi. Nowadays he tours with his band Jounce and produces sketch comedy with his group ManBoobs Comedy. (@dtamberelli @manboobscomedy @jounce)
Jim Tews is a man of many comedic talents who has been clawing his way to the middle for nearly a decade. Since starting as a standup comic in Cleveland eight years ago, he's traveled the country and relocated to New York City.
In 2007 he was a finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival, In 2008 he created the "popular" web series The Opener for HBO's new media division and in 2010 he was the winner of the New York Comedy Contest. He was also one of 2013's New Faces at Just For Laughs Montreal.
Jim also helms the Undone Sweaters, america's #1 sociophoboc Weezer cover band which plays out live and is a "popular" web series.
Reid Faylor is a small, bearded boy with a deep, sensuous voice. He doesn't give a dang anymore, so he's going to do whatever it is he feels like doing. That might mean guiding the audience in relaxation exercises, or pretending to smoke an infant, but most likely it's gonna be weird and delightful. His calm demeanor sets you at peace as he guides you into a nice helping of joyous stupidity, so just enjoy it, you know?
Reid has performed at the Just for Laughs festival in Chicago, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and he was also a writer selected for the 2014 NBC New Talent Showcase. He lives in New York City where he performs stand-up and sketch, writes young adult fiction, and illustrates some real nice posters and stuff. Reid also plays lead guitar in the Undone Sweaters—the last punk band in New York, and the second best Weezer cover band in Brooklyn. It's also a web series with surprisingly little to do with Weezer, but then it became a band, too. His cat is named Mr. President.
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.
Jonah Ray is a writer/comedian originally from Kailua, Oahu. He’s written and performed on shows like “Human Giant,” “Supernews,” “Attack of the Show,” Comedy Central’s “Live At Gotham” and “Web Soup.” A co-host on the NERDIST PODCAST with Chris Hardwick, Jonah also puts together a weekly comedy show at MELTDOWN COMIC BOOKS in Los Angeles, Ca with Kumail Nanjiani. Be sure to check out his blog at jonahray.com. He more often than not posts stuff about penguins, zombies, and “Mystery Science Theater 3000.”
Jacob Sirof was born and raised in San Francisco, California during the "Comedy Boom" of the 1980's.
There were few places more booming than San Francisco, so nobody was too surprised when Jacob announced at an early age that he wanted to be a comedian when he grew up. Today, Jacob still hasn?t grown up, although he is a comedian. As a young adult, he started doing stand-up in his hometown, and quickly joined the ranks of a promising young crop of local talent, which has since been dubbed "The New Wave" of San Francisco comedy. In 2006, Jacob was selected to perform at the prestigious "Just For Laughs" comedy festival in Montreal, Canada, where he got very drunk and high with comedians and industry-types from all over the world.
His television appearances include "Live At Gotham" on Comedy Central and "Down and Dirty With Jim Norton" on HBO. He has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, as well as the Hollywood Reporter, and performs across much of the known galaxy. Jacob currently resides in Santa Monica, California. He would like to do comedy for ever and ever, yet he is a mere mortal, and will most likely die someday.
The Undone Sweaters (Danny Tamberelli, Andrew Short, Jim Tews & Reid Faylor) are Brooklyn’s number two Weezer tribute band. They would’ve been number one, but they refused to learn the entire catalog. They’re rule breakers, punk rock, if you will. Their live show is one of a kind, combining short, live sketches, funny visuals, and actual musicianship. They are joined by Jonah Ray and Jacob Sirof for some Weezer-themed comedy.
