About the Performers
Alejandro Morales is a founding member of stand-up collective Laughs On Philly, producer and co-host of the food-themed rap battle game show Eat Your Beats, creator and star of the web series Sadulous, spanish-language improvisor with Que Comedy, and comedian about town, performing at independent showcases as well as comedy establishments like Helium Comedy Club, Punch Line Philly, and Good Good Comedy Theatre. He is the 19th funniest comedian in Philadelphia.
Michael Furr is Baltimore's "Sweetheart of Comedy." A comedian, producer, director and writer, Michael uses his narrative voice and conversational tone to put audiences at ease while leaving them in stitches. His hit stand up comedy special, "Straight Acting," is delighting audiences across the world on Amazon Prime Video, Spotify, iTunes, Tidal and anywhere else that comedy is streamed.
Sammie James is a comedian and story teller from New Jersey; where she hosts and produces The LGBT showcase Queerly Comedic. Sammie also hosts the podcast All Of My Friends Are Animals and The NYC Trans Variety show We Are Trans. She performs all over the east coast; including past appearances at Cinder Block Comedy Festival, Charm City Comedy Festival and Bechdal Test Fest; and she is soon to be your favorite disabled, nerdy, butch trans woman in comedy.
Native to Baltimore, Elizabeth Norman is a comedian, educator and very polite young lady. When she isn't explaining mummies to children or teaching art classes, she entertains audiences all over Maryland and DC (and sometimes even Pennsylvania and Virginia!) either alone as a stand-up or with her sketch comedy group, Nightmares on ELM Street. As quick-witted as she is silly, Elizabeth is a delightful mix of proper, playful and absurd, with just a hint of an edge. She's all the fun of your favorite redhead female cartoon protagonist, with a little extra depth!
Comedian and podcaster Ross Weisman has a neurotic mind. He has performed in Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City, and once in a skeevy London bar (no one could understand his lack of an accent). His comedy style combines stories from his childhood and his modern-day failings to be a cool, well-rounded gay man
America's foremost cryptocomedian takes you on a deep dive through his shallow thoughts. Shifting between obsessive wordplay and physical comedy, between the surreal and the dialectic, Presenting a witty, sharp take on mundane notions, Ian's act treads clumsily through self-examination and social awareness stopping just short of navel gazing. Most of the time.
Ryan is an improv duo who cordially invites you to brunch. Be careful: the tee is hot, and it will be spilled.
