Ziwe is a "pop star". She's invited some of the city's best comedians to perform original pop songs (and pop presentations!) so they can be "pop stars" together.
Ziwe Fumudoh is a writer at The Rundown with Robin Thede. She has a web series called Baited with Ziwe. Her jokes have been featured in The Onion, Above Average, and Reductress. Additionally, her tweets have appeared in Buzzfeed, CNN, Cosmopolitan, The Fader, NPR, NYMAG, and the New York Times.
Karen Chee is a comedy writer/performer who contributes regularly to The New Yorker, McSweeney's, and Splitsider. She has also written for Reductress, Shondaland, Funny or Die, and The Washington Post. Around town, Karen does sketch comedy with Lo-Fi and improv with anyone who will let her.
Chris Murphy is an actor, singer, and freelance writer based in New York City. Most recently, you could catch him as “Seemore” in Addy and Uno, the first family musical about disability, and as “Man #6“ in Naked Boys Singing!, definitively not the first family musical about disability, both of which are currently running Off-Broadway at the Kirk Theater on Theatre Row. Chris has also had the pleasure of performing at Atlantic Theatre Company, Williamstown Theatre Festival, Ars Nova, The Playwrights Realm, The A.R.T/NY Theater, LABrynth Theatre Company, Feinstein's/54 Below, The Green Room 42, The Flea Theater, Cabernet Cabaret at Club Cumming, and It's A Guy Thing at Union Hall to name a few. You can catch his writing on HuffPost, Atlanta Black Star, Medium, and, most frequently, on Twitter and Instagram by following @christress.
Dan co-created and wrote an animated series, "That's My Bus!", that won 1st place at the 2015 Montreal Just For Laughs Festival's Set To Screen Contest. Dan writes for Sirius XM's Bennington and has worked as comedy contributor for Neil deGrasse Tyson's StarTalk Radio.
SOPHIE SANTOS is a comedian and writer based in Brooklyn, NY who Time Out NY recently named as one of the LGBTQ POC comedians you should know. A semi-finalist for both the Fox Writers Lab and Sundance Episodic Lab, she has written for MTV and BRIC TV. She performs regularly at UCB and has been seen at venues such as Club Cumming, The Duplex, The Bell House and Union Hall (most recently with the sold out run of Handmaid’s Tale: The Musical). She is one half of the sultry sketch show, Riverdale Live (based on the hit CW show), and currently co-hosts The Lesbian Agenda, a Variety Show, at Union Hall. This summer she performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and in October, she'll be performing at The Kennedy Center in association with The Bentzen Ball.
Farah Brook hopes to heal you through the art form of comedy. Her work has been featured in Time Magazine, NY Times, HuffPo, People Magazine, Vulture and more. Farah is the creator and host of the critically acclaimed podcast Psychic Hotline. She is a contributing writer for Reductress and plays Serena Joy in the parody Handmaid's Tale The Musical.
