Night Train with Wyatt Cenac: 5 Year Anniversary Show
Hosted by Brooklyn-based comedy favorite Wyatt Cenac (The Daily Show, King of the Hill), Night Train show features comedy from the best local and international stand up comedians, and--at times--special guest appearances by musicians, local celebrities, and the occasional surprise only found in Gowanus.
Chris Gethard is the host and star of "The Chris Gethard Show" on Fusion and the host of the popular Earwolf podcast "Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People". Chris recently starred in the Mike Birbiglia film, “Don’t Think Twice" and can be seen as ‘Todd’ on Comedy Central’s “Broad City". Other credits include Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer,” NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”, “The Office” and “The Heat.” Chris is the author of the book A Bad Idea I’m About to Do and his first stand-up album (“My Comedy Album”) debuted on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart in 2014. Chris's one man show, Career Suicide (produced by Judd Apatow) recently finished a successful off-broadway run at The Lynn Redgrave Theatre in NYC.
In the hard-hitting New York comedy world, D.C. Benny is a heavyweight contender. His nickname “D.C.” was given to him by Harlem’s legendary host; “Uncle” Jimmy Mack, who sadly passed away in the 2014 Tracy Morgan car accident.
Benny’s unusual style of telling autobiographical stories, inhabited by original characters has been sharpened for almost thirty years as a performer. His personal essays, stories, and articles have been featured in New York Magazine, The New York Observer, Narratively, and Heeb Magazine.
Benny’s diverse fan base know him from a wide range of appearances; his “White Boy Rips The Apollo” clip with almost ten million views, his Comedy Central Presents, one the of the network’s highest-rated half-hour specials, as a top eight finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, his role as Caesar in John Singleton’s feature film “Illegal Tender”, as “Chaz” on the soap opera “As The World Turns”, and national commercials for Verizon, Dell, Volkswagon, Wendy’s, AIG, as well as the Budweiser “How You Doin’?” superbowl spots campaign.
His long-running comedic story-telling show, Urban Myth, was an underground staple of the New York scene, where performers such as Dave Chappelle, Robert Kelley, Jim Gaffigan, Jim Norton, Jay Oakerson, Kevin Hart, Mike Epps, and SNL’s Dean Edwards would tell their true, funny, stories, to a packed house at The Zinc, a downtown New York jazz bar.
Currently, Benny co-hosts the story-telling podcast “Tall But True” with his friend, Cash Cab’s Ben Bailey, where guests like Ray Romano, Dom Irrera, Colin Quinn, Adam Ferrara, Artie Lange, and Bill Burr share funny stories and talk smack.
Benny lives in Brooklyn where he fiddles around with old Land Rovers when he is supposed to be helping his wife run her natural skincare business. He has a dog named Grits and two cats who prefer that he not share their personal information in this bio.
