Comedian JENNY GORELICK (Improv Everywhere) celebrates monthly with a BIRTHDAY-THEMED VARIETY SHOW & BLOW-OUT)! 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.
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.
Alexander Boyce’s performances have been called “fun,” “classy,” and “astounding.” His performances are in demand at performing arts centers, banquets, colleges, theaters, corporations, home parties and everywhere in between. Alexander has worked his magic for top businesses and colleges such as the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open, Norfolk Marriott Waterside, and Bryn Mawr College (PA). His magic has even been seen on the “Today Show” on NBC.
Alexander has won many awards in the magic community and he has become a regular performer at Monday Night Magic, NYC’s longest running magic show. He has performed for stars and celebrities, including Jenette McCurdy (star of the Nickelodeon show, “iCarly”) and Tony Kornheiser of ESPN.
Brian shouts O-H! on the streets forgetting he is hasn't been in Columbus for five years and will often chatter about electrons forgetting that no one in the television industry cares about his wasted degree in Chemistry. Brian has worked as an Assistant Director for The Travel Channel, Food Network, A&E, MTV, and many others with and without acronyms. His first children's picture book Where The Subway Cars Go, illustrated by Andy Aidekman, is due out on shelves as soon as it gets published. He also does magic. Mostly in bars for free drinks which he hates drinking because he knows, no matter how much water he guzzles, he will get a hangover. The last time he was on this show he pulled a card out of his ass. He's still figuring out how to top that.
Gabe Gonzalez is 130 lbs. of absolute garbage and has been slowly cultivating a collection of used marijuana containers under his bed. He’s studied improv and sketch at Second City, talked about butt juice on Inside Amy Schumer, and joined a bunch of badass Latinos for the HBO doc Habla y Vota. When he isn’t busy paying off an insurmountable debt to Brown University, he enjoys playing with other peoples’ cats and plucking his own back hair. He’s a news producer at Mic. @gaybonez

Dave produces and hosts running shows in NYC including Gayme Show! at Caveat, The List at PUBLIC Arts, LOL Comedy Fundraiser at Ace Hotel, Isn't It Grand at SOHO Grand, Stand-Up Video at Videology, and many more. David has produced and hosted events venues like Littlefield, The Bell House, Union Hall, Ace Hotel, The Duplex, and The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Time Out New York called him a "comedy crush" which is the kind of adulation he literally requires in order to survive. Dave proudly identifies as the Betty Draper of the gay comedy community.
