Dale Seever
Host of the long-running Deep Night podcast, Dale Seever is the alter ego of Brooklyn-based performer and writer James Bewley. He has presented work as Dale, or under his own name, as part of numerous comedy and storytelling events around the country including SF Sketchfest, Showgasm, ANT Fest at Ars Nova, SOLO Fest, IFC Comedy Showcase, Soundtrack Series, Dead Darlings, PS122’s COIL Festival, among many others. He's a recurring guest on Running Late with Scott Rogowsky and is the co-creator of Wunnerful Wunnerful: A Tribute to Lawrence Welk at Joe's Pub . He trained at the Upright Citizens Brigade in LA, Robert Wilson's Watermill Center in Long Island, and is a former member of the San Francisco sketch comedy group, Killing My Lobster. He is also a Senior Program Officer at the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
2Scoops
2Scoops: The Legendary, Chart-Topping, Entirely Fictional 90's Girl Group.

Long after cassingles, beepers, and neon colors have gone out of style, these two girls from around the way still cling tight to the music and style of the early 90's. Holding the world record for the most breakups of any group in history, they were recently reunited, broken up again and re-reunited. You can find Dana and Deena performing regularly on the Joe's Pub stage sharing fresh tales, classic jamz, and same ol' bad attitudes. #2scoops4eva
2Scoops is written and performed by Adam Enright and Aaron Fuksa.
The Great Dubini (close-up magician)
Gregory Dubin, aka “The Great Dubini” has performed all over NYC. He’s been featured on The Love Show and on Ripley’s Believe It or Not’s Sideshow Wonders, and performs and consults with Sleep No More. He also produces and performs in his own show, The Mystique Boutique.
Aphrodite Rose
Hailing all the way from San Francisco, Aphrodite Rose is best known as The Queen of Give No Fucks, The Resting Bitchface of Burlesque, and The Ex-Wife You are Glad You Didn't Marry. She grew up on a farm, and decided that taking her clothes off was more entertaining than feeding the goats. You can get a schedule for all of her shows at AphroditeRose.com.
Sparky Lingwater (A.E. Kieren)
Sparky Lingwater, of the Atlanta Lingwaters, is the south's premier drag marionette. She has collaborated musically with and had inappropriate sexual relationships with Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, and KD Lang.

A.E. Kieren is a freelance illustrator and performer. He specializes in on-location illustration, for "sketch journalism" as well as for events and entertainment. Clients include Target, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, Salvatore Ferragamo, Refinery Hotel, Sleep No More/McKittrick Hotel, MM&M, Johns Hopkins Magazine, The Dramatist, and Daily Front Row.
He holds a BFA in Illustration from College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI and an MFA in Illustration as Visual Essay from School of Visual Arts in New York City.
Naomi Ekperigin
Naomi Ekperigin
Naomi has been making audiences laugh for over 10 years--from coast to coast and on both hemispheres. She can be found performing at such New York City venues as The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, Gotham Comedy Club, or Karma Lounge, where she produces the monthly show Coyote Average. You may have seen her on VH1's "The Short List," on the 5 Funny Females tour, or maybe on tour with the National Theater of the Deaf back in 2005.
Andy Beckerman
Andy Beckerman is a New York-based writer and producer. He recently co-created and executive produced a comedic pilot about race called Inside Caucasia for truTV and served as a consultant on Jessica Williams’ Comedy Central pilot. Previously, he wrote for The Pete Holmes Show (TBS) and Cedric’s Barber Battle (The CW). He also produces and hosts the popular interview podcast Beginnings about the childhoods of writers and performers; and the gameshow podcast Snap Impression, which is featured live monthly at the UCB Theater, where he has been a house performer since 2012. His first indie pilot Grumpkin Hollow was a finalist in the 2012 New York Television Festival/Comedy Central Short Pilot Competition.
Munoz & Dutra
Paloma Muñoz and Ronny Dutra met in the greatest city in the world while doing what they love most, performing. Tango brought them together at the Poet’s Den Theater a few years ago and they have been dancing together in several theaters and events since then. Paloma is a singer, dancer and actress born and raised in Argentina. She now spends her days as the lead singer in one of the best known boogaloo bands in the city: Spanglish Fly. On the other hand, Ronny’s success in the artistic community in Brazil inspired him to further his career in New York. Now known in the U.S. for his dance expertise, he lectures at Brazilian dance conferences, teaching samba, bolero, forro, zouk, and Argentine Tango.
Kaz
Influenced by a cappella performance, KAZ started practicing beatbox in 1999. After graduating high school, he moved to New York and performed on the streets and subways until 2006. He then formed “beatstick.jp” with the beatboxer HIRONA, which spread throughout Japan. KAZ won the 2008 Beatbox Japan Battle that led him to compete in the Beatbox Convention’s Final Stage, held at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. He was the first Japanese beatboxer to compete at the 2009 Beatbox Battle World Championship and made it to the Top 20. In 2012, he joined powers with former champions of the Beatbox Japan Battle TATSUYA and TRIP, and together with HIRONA, the four formed the most powerful beatbox group named “MAD4th”, and the same year they were battle champions.

Once again, KAZ is taking a leap and aiming for the world. His high-definition beat making and deep tone quality is so unique that once you hear it, you will be blown away. KAZ also collaborates with various artists in Japan and abroad. KAZ’s voice and beat making can be found as the recorded voice of the preset sounds in KORG’s microSAMPLER. He also does the demonstrations on the promotional video of the product.
