The Roast of Your 15 Year Old Self
Some of NYC's funniest comedians come together for one night only to roast the one person everybody loves to hate: themselves at 15. With photos, old diary entries, and the occasional angst-filled musical number, The Roast Of Your 15 Year Old Self is a laugh riot guaranteed to make you feel better about all the embarrassing things you did as a teen.

Jes Tom (they/them) is an actor and weird queer stand up comic. Born & raised in San Francisco and now based in New York, Jes's comedy gleefully provides the nonbinary queer Asian American radical cyborg perspective that everyone never knew they wanted.

Their writing has been published in Condé Nast's Them, and they appeared in the Funny Or Die short film "Soojung Dreams of Fiji." In collaboration with fellow comedian Chewy May, Jes Tom wrote, co-directed, and starred in the viral video Ghost In The Shell PSA, which received praise on platforms such as Buzzfeed, Upworthy, Nextshark, iO9, and Perez Hilton. Jes has been featured in GO Magazine, Splitsider, and the Fader, and were named one of TimeOut New York's "LGBTQ POC Comedians We're Obsessed With."
