Night Train with Wyatt Cenac

Hosted by Brooklyn-based comedy favorite Wyatt Cenac, 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.
Alzo Slade
Alzo Slade
Alzo Slade thinks it's kinda weird to write about himself in third person so I won't. I'm from the South (Florida, Mississippi and Texas...yep all of em). I've won a couple comedy competitions, hustled my way into Just for Laughs Comedy Festival and I play clubs, bars and all the other stuff that's supposed to be said in comedy bios. Truth is...I just like laughing. It's fun. Especially when other folx are doing it with you...although laughing alone is pretty dope/weird too.
Kenny DeForest
Kenny DeForest
Kenny DeForest is a 5 year stand up comedy veteran based in Chicago, IL. Labeled a hustler by his peers, Kenny’s comedy can be described as edgy, smart and honest. Since arriving in Chicago, Kenny has become a regular performer at Chicago’s top clubs and showcases including Laugh Factory, Comedians You Should Know, and the widely released “Chicago Mixtapes: Comedy Mixtape”; all after being named “Favorite Newcomer 2010” by comedyofchicago.com. The most important thing of note is that Kenny always has as much fun performing as audiences do watching him.
D.C. Benny
D.C. Benny
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.
Aparna Nancherla
Aparna Nancherla
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.
Ophira Eisenberg
Ophira Eisenberg
