Max Silvestri
Max Silvestri
Max Silvestri is a comedian, writer and actor living in Brooklyn. New York Magazine called him one of the "Ten Comedians People Find Funny," which means at least one person who works at a magazine thinks he is funny. He was one of Paste Magazine's best comedians of the year, and he co-hosts Big Terrific every Wednesday at Cameo Gallery.
Kevin Barnett
Kevin Barnett is one of the fastest rising comics in NYC. He is also a cool guy, who doesn't usually smell, and showers relatively regularly. He can be seen on Comedy Central, College Humor, and is a panelist on MTV's #FAIL. He can also be seen in the independent film 'How to Follow Strangers' and in Mike Birbiglia's feature film, Sleepwalk With Me, to be realeased later this year. Kevin was a standout new face at the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival this past summer, a writer on MTV2's Guy Code, and co-host one of the best podcasts in NY: The Roundtable of Gentlemen.
Mike Recine
Mike Recine
Mike Recine began comedy in New Jersey in 2006. In 2009 he released his first album Make it Funny, Clown! and can be seen all over New York City. In 2010 he performed in the New York Comedy Festival and was nominated for Time Out NY's Joke of the Year.
Sabrina Jalees
Sabrina Jalees
Sabrina Jalees is a comedian, actor, keynote speaker and writer based in New York City (Brooklyn.)
Since stepping onto the stage of (Toronto’s) Yuk Yuk’s amateur night at 16, she’s become one of the most recognizable faces in the Canadian media.
Lovers of comedy were immediately intrigued by the ½ -Pakistani, ½ -Swiss teen’s humor (…mostly because she was so damned clever (and admittedly, partially due to her moustache at the time).
She was soon skipping class to tour the country. Going on to record a CTV Comedy Now special, perform at the famed Just For Laughs Festival and break Mike Myers’ record as the youngest improviser ever hired by Second City.
Between now and then she’s crossed over into acting (CBS’s Flashpoint, Lifetime’s Mom at Sixteen), hosts a Canadian reality series (YTV’s In Real Life) as well as a national radio show (CBC’s Laugh Out Loud) and is best known for her rapier wit as a fixture of the most popular show on Canada’s version of MTV (Much Music’s Video On Trial).
Her confidence and ambition has been in the scope of several international publications (Cosmogirl, Marie Claire Italy, ABC’s Switched) and has led to the birth of a budding career in motivational speaking. Her comedy itself has caught glimpses of the globe, having toured North America, England and South Africa.
Cut to now. She’s completed her B.A. in Radio and Television Production. She’s moved to the U.S. where she’s heavily booked touring colleges across the country. She’s turned some important heads (NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Logo’s Year End Revew, Animal Planet’s The A-List, MTV’s Failosophy) and she’s working on turning a few more (i.e. You).
Check her website out (…if you don’t like her you’re probably racist.)
