Best friends and New York Comedians, Farah Brook and Blair Socci, started a comedy show in the east village in 2014. They named it after Farah's grandmother from Long Island, Harriet, because she makes them laugh. They are back at Littlefield for a special edition of “Harriet" in order to benefit the ACLU - American Civil Liberties Union.

Julio is a Brooklyn-based comedian who moved to NYC from El Salvador to study literature at the New School. He has since parlayed his short story and play writing into stand-up, making observations on pop culture, his strict vegan diet, and ranking other people’s lifestyles on a scale from “chill” to “kind of whatever I guess.” Last year, Julio was a finalist in the 2013 NBC Stand-Up for Diversity showcase and awarded a spot on the 2014 NBC College Diversity Tour. Most recently, Julio was named one of Comedy Central’s 2014 Comics to Watch.
Queen of that slightly cynical but innocent humor, Aparna Nancherla has been winning audiences everywhere she goes. You may have caught her on “Last Comic Standing”, The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Aspen Rooftop or WTF podcast. Writer and player on W. Kamau Bell’s “Totally Biased” Aparna is sure to be soaking up the laughs. Look out for her on SF Sketchfest’s comedy lineup this year.
Southern bred, but NYC based, Katy Frame & Marie Cecile Anderson enjoy straddling both comedy clubs and music venues! They’ve toured all across the country (sometimes in a fancy tour bus) opening for big names like “Weird Al” Yankovic, Alice Cooper, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Les Claypool, Dweezil Zappa, and Reverend Horton Heat. Reformed Whores have been featured on IFC, PBS, CBS, SiriusXM, Gotham Comedy Live on AXS tv, The Huffington Post, Splitsider, The Washington Post, BUST Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Nerve.com, and Glamour Magazine. Their sophomore album “Don’t Beat Around the Bush” debuted in March 2016 on the top 20 iTunes comedy chart!
