Her television stand-up appearances include the The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Lopez Tonight, Comedy Central and Last Comic Standing. As well as playing Private Robinson on FOX's critically acclaimed series Enlisted, Michelle is also known as 'The Crazy Girlfriend' on Comedy Central's Key & Peele and Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show. Michelle's dynamic presence both on television and on the stage, bringing an unapologetic frankness to every performance will have you saying "Hey, Girl Hey!" the rest of your day.
Krystyna Hutchinson is a stand-up comedian, writer and actress originally from Doylestown, Pennsylvania. She is a regular in the New York City stand-up scene and has performed in clubs, colleges, bars, basements, laundromats and sushi restaurants all over the country.
Krystyna is half of the comedy duo, Sorry About Last Night, with fellow stand-up, Corinne Fisher. Together, they have produced several popular stand-up shows in New York City, written and starred in a two woman self-titled show at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, created the vlog series Girls on GIRLS and currently host one of iTune's top podcasts, Guys We Fucked: The Anti-Slut Shaming Podcast, which has been praised in publications such as The Daily Beast, The Huffington Post, Shape Magazine, The Daily Dot, and many more.
Aparna Nancherla is delighted you are here. She's a comedian of the stand-up variety, but can often be seen sitting. She recently wrote for LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS on NBC. You can also see her on the current season of INSIDE AMY SCHUMER on COMEDY CENTRAL and on the upcoming season of LOVE on NETFLIX. In addition, she currently hosts the long-running popular underground New York comedy show, WHIPLASH at the UPRIGHT CITIZEN'S BRIGADE THEATER on Monday nights at 11 p.m.
Her artistic journey took off in Washington D.C. (it's all about the Washingtons), but she now resides in the biggest apple in the gosh darn world. Aparna's sense of humor tends toward the dry, observational variety, but do be warned, her act runs rampant with absurdism and unregulated whimsy. Other credits include writer and performer on TOTALLY BIASED WITH W. KAMAU BELL and appearances on CONAN on TBS, MELTDOWN WITH JONAH AND KUMAIL, @MIDNIGHT, and ADAM DEVINE'S HOUSE PARTY on COMEDY CENTRAL, NBC's LAST COMIC STANDING, SEESO's NIGHT TRAIN WITH WYATT CENAC and ROOFTOP COMEDY'S LIVE FROM THE BARREL HOUSE, VH1'S I LOVE THE 2000S, TRUTV'S HOW TO BE A GROWN UP and FRIENDS OF THE PEOPLE, and FUSE'S WHITE GUY TALK SHOW. She has also done videos for ABOVE AVERAGE, REFINERY29, FUNNY OR DIE, SLATE V, and MTV OTHER.
In addition to being a 2013 New Face at the prestigious JUST FOR LAUGHS COMEDY FESTIVAL in Montreal, she has also been on numerous lists such as VULTURE'S "50 COMEDIANS YOU SHOULD KNOW IN 2015", MARIE CLAIRE'S FUNNIEST WOMEN OF 2015, TIME MAGAZINE'S 140 TOP TWEETERS OF 2014, JEZEBEL'S COMEDY QUEENS OF 2014, TIME OUT NY'S "10 FUNNIEST WOMEN IN NEW YORK", FLAVORPILL'S "11 ESSENTIAL YOUNG COMEDIANS IN NEW YORK CITY", LA WEEKLY'S "12 COMEDY ACTS TO WATCH", SERIAL OPTIMIST'S "10 COMICS YOU MUST KNOW", and SPLITSIDER'S "10 UP-AND-COMING COMEDIANS ON EACH COAST". She has also been featured in LAUGHSPIN, BUST MAGAZINE, COSMOPOLITAN, ELLE INDIA, READER'S DIGEST, THE HUFFINGTON POST, and THE WASHINGTON POST MAGAZINE.
You may have heard Aparna on the WTF PODCAST WITH MARC MARON, the NERDIST PODCAST WITH CHRIS HARDWICK, NPR'S "WAIT, WAIT…DON'T TELL ME!", RADIO Q on CBC, or seen her at countless festivals such as the MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FESTIVAL IN AUSTRALIA, SXSW, SF SKETCHFEST, OUTSIDELANDS, the BRIDGETOWN COMEDY FESTIVAL, and the GREAT AMERICAN COMEDY FESTIVAL.

Tompkins, Eugene Mirman, Maria Bamford, Kurt Braunohler & Kristen Schaal, Dave Attell, Rob Delaney, Christian Finnegan, Tom Green, Eddie Brill, Hari Kondabolu, Myq Kaplan, and Chris D'Elia.
Morgan started making a name for herself on the LA comedy scene while still a student at Loyola Marymount University. Shortly after she graduated, she appeared on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Last Call w/ Carson Daly. While still in college, she wrote on the sketch pilot The Offensive Show created by BJ Porter and Scott Aukerman and after graduating was a staff writer on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Morgan is currently a writer for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
With the sweetness of the Midwest and the iron balls of the East Coast, Jenny Zigrino is a comedian that packs a punch of truly original humor. She's charmed audiences across the country with her wit, keen observations, embarrassing anecdotes, and brilliant honesty for a compelling performance you can't ignore. She made her late night debut on Conan O'Brien and was a finalist in Comedy Central's "Up Next" Comics to Watch of 2013. She took 2nd place on the TBS show "Funniest Wins", hosted by Marlon Wayans. She was featured on Oxygen's "My Crazy Love", IFC's "Young, Broke, and Beautiful", and FOX's "LaughsTV". She's a regular performer at the Women in Comedy Festival and has also performed at the New York Comedy Festival, RIOTLA Comedy Festival, The 9s Music Festival, Great American Comedy Festival, Cape Fear Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Festival, and many others. In conclusion, she's kind of a bad ass bitch.
