Jenny's Birthday Variety Show
"Ms. Gorelick is really onto something" - NYTimes
"Frighteningly upbeat" - Time Out New York
Comedian JENNY GORELICK (Improv Everywhere) celebrates monthly with a BIRTHDAY-THEMED VARIETY SHOW & BLOW-OUT with her best friend ADDIE WEYRICH (Adult Swim). This is NEW YORK's most celebratory & self-absorbed comedy show!
It is the party of the year, every month! Previous shows have been a Surprise Party, Clubbing, Magic Show, Slumber Party...and more!
JENNY’S BIRTHDAY has been running since December 2016 at Union Hall, Legion Bar, and Artichoke Pizza and featured in the Skint, Comedy Cake, Time Out New York, and the NYTimes.
Sasheer Zamata is a comedian, actress, writer and was a cast member on Saturday Night Live from January 18, 2014 until May 20, 2017.” She has appeared on TBS’s “People of Earth,” Amazon’s “Transparent,” Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer,” "Bojack Horseman," Seeso’s “Night Train with Wyatt Cenac,” and has voiced the role of “Maise” in Nickelodeon’s “Albert” and appears in the upcoming features, "Sleight" and "Deidra & Laney Rob A Train.” She also serves as ACLU's Celebrity Ambassador for Women's Rights. Her one-hour standup comedy special, "Pizza Mind" debuted on March 30th on SeeSo.
Sydnee is originally from New York City but raised in Oakland, California. Growing up with a backyard & a big wheel really has made her more approachable than most New Yorkers. Sydnee and her frequent collaborator, Marie Faustin, host the popular podcast “The UnOfficial Expert” with ComedyHype. They also host the Lower East Side comedy staple, Hot Box Comedy. Sydnee writes and stars in her one woman show "Death of a Bottle Girl" (seen at the Duplex and Caveat) and has appeared on MTV, TruTv, and various videos for GQ and Elite Daily.
Friends Who Folk
Comedic folk duo Friends Who Folk (Rachel Wenitsky and Ned Riseley) host an evening of comedy, folk, and friendship, with help from some beautiful guests!
Part concert, part variety show, part seance, all deranged, Friends Who Folk & Friends invites audiences to explore the power of music - its ability to transform, numb, and alienate. We are friends and we love to folk.
Matt DeCaro is a mostly sad, kinda funny Brooklyn singer songwriter. He's played Brooklyn Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, and a whole lot of basements. He explores depression, past relationships, and overeating in hopes to fall asleep. It's honest, it's catchy, it's sad, it's loud, and it's all on Spotify!
Alex Harris (Mentalist)
New York City magician and mentalist Alex Harris has performed his unique brand of magic and mentalism for audiences worldwide. You will participate in demonstrations of the extraordinary, and witness feats that defy explanation right before your eyes.
JENNY GORELICK is a comedy producer, performer, and birthday girl who the NYTimes thinks "is really onto something." She celebrates her birthday every month with her long-running variety show JENNY'S BIRTHDAY at Union Hall. In fact, she loves birthdays so much that she had a Sweet Sixteen on the Q Train in a viral video with Improv Everywhere that received 44M views. She was once called an "unassuming gal" by MTV, but we all know that was mistaken. In addition, she produces an all-female stand up comedy show to benefit relief for natural disasters called Her-icane that has raised thousands of dollars and was featured in the NYTimes. Taxi TV's Sandy Kenyon believes she is a "star of tomorrow," and now she can die happy.
Addie Weyrich is a Philly raised, New York based comedian, actor, and writer. You can see her all over the place, like on HBO, AdultSwim, Amazon or on stage in numerous bars and basements. If you don't like bars and basements, she gets it, just like, follow her on Instagram at @addieyomind or something.
