Josh Gondelman is a writer and comedian who incubated in Boston before moving to New York City, where he currently lives and works as a writer for Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Onstage, Josh charms audiences using his good-natured storytelling and cracks them up with his sharp, pointy wit. He takes topics from surprise parties to his experience teaching preschool and makes them all equally hilarious. In 2016, he made his late night standup debut on Conan (TBS), and he recently made his network tv debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers (NBC). Josh’s newest comedy album Physical Whisper debuted in March of 2016 at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts (as well as #4 on the Billboard comedy chart) and stayed there for…well…longer than he expected, honestly.
Offstage, Josh has earned two Peabody Awards, three Emmy awards, and two WGA Awards for his work on Last Week Tonight. He is also the co-author (along with Joe Berkowitz) of the book You Blew It, published October 2015 by Plume. His follow-up, Nice Try, is set to come out Fall 2019 through Harper Perennial. In the past, Josh has written for Fuse TV’s Billy On The Street. His writing has also appeared in prestigious publications such as McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, New York Magazine, and The New Yorker.
Gondelman is the co-creator and co-author of the Shorty Award-winning Modern Seinfeld Twitter account, and his own Twitter feed was named the year’s best by Paste Magazine in 2015. The Ellen DeGeneres Show took notice of Josh’s joke writing skill and featured him as part of their “Tweetly Roundup.”
Additionally, Josh has performed at the Rooftop Comedy Festival in Aspen, CO, and headlined at the Laugh Your Asheville Off Festival in Asheville, NC. More recently he has appeared in the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and SF Sketchfest. His debut standup comedy CD, “Everything’s The Best” was released in November of 2011 by Rooftop Comedy Productions.
Seaton Smith is an actor and comedian who you may know from his role as "Motif" on FOX'S Mulaney. Vulture named him one of The 50 Comedians You Should Know in 2015, and he brought his skills to late-night with an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers. He has headlined shows across the country, performed at over 200 college campuses, as well as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Montreal's Just for Laughs Festival.
Samantha Ruddy tells jokes, writes funny stuff, and weasels her way into your heart with her girl-next-door charm. At the age of 26, she's headlined Carolines on Broadway and has been featured at national comedy festivals like New York Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, and Bridgetown Comedy Festival. She's done shows like Whiplash at UCB, Patton Oswalt and Friends, and the Stella Classic Nightclub Show.
Brooklyn Magazine called her one of Brooklyn's 50 Funniest People, BUST says she's a comic "you should be obsessed with," and Splitsider recently featured her for "Follow Friday." Samantha is a skilled joke writer and her comedy is clever, disarming, and sly. Read her writing on Collegehumor, Someecards, and Reductress, check out her weekly Wednesday show at Lucky Jack's in Manhattan at 9pm, and follow her on Twitter @Samlymatters. You'll be glad you did. And she will too!
Joe Rumrill is a fictional one-eyed spinach-loving sailor created in 1929...Wait, no, hold on...Joe Rumrill is a Brooklyn-based stand-up comedian and writer who performs anywhere you need him (no sewers, please. Not after the last time...) His work has been featured in Seriously.TV, Splitsider, and the Village Voice. Joe can often be seen playing various characters on the weekly MNN series The Special Without Brett Davis. He's the creator of Fresh Perspectives a popular weirdo comedy showcase in Williamsburg that has been featured in the Brooklyn Comedy Festival. He co-created Cartoon Monsoon, a monthly UNeducational "children's" variety show bursting with puppets, animation and costumed characters that can be seen at the Annoyance Theater. His talents were utilized as a writer/story producer for the upcoming web-series Start Talkin' with Scott Rogowsky. In addition to performing nightly on various shows throughout the city, he's currently hard at work on both his first hour-long solo show Joe Rumrill Is Too Scared To Be Shot Out Of A Cannon, and a musical based on the Gremlins movies. He hopes to one day, with the right combination of campaigning, crowdsourcing and luck, be the first person ever to perform stand-up comedy in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Speaking of, Joe's Christmas list can be provided upon request, and, as luck would have it, he's been a very good boy this year.
