Time Out Live
Time Out New York Comedy editor Matthew Love enjoys getting people excited about comedy, laughing and laughing at comedy. Especially when the comics involved will soon be too big to be in a room with him or anyone who isn't name-checked in a Kanye song. This showcase highlights some of the most unique, rising voices in the worlds of stand-up, storytelling and more. And for all who like to fantasize about beloved, big names dropping in, please feel free to do that.
Mixing his spontaneous creativity and absurd view of the world, L.A. based comedian Rory Scovel is quickly making a name for himself across North America. Rory has appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, and has opened theater shows for such comics as Louis C.K., Daniel Tosh and Nick Swardson.
Named one of the "Top Five Comedians Who Should Be Movie Stars" by Nerve.com and one of the "Top 18 Women You Should Be Following On Twitter" by Huffington Post, Jamie Lee is an unstoppable force in the funny biz. Lee was a semi-finalist on NBC's "Last Comic Standing," co-hosted the first annual Critics Choice Awards for Vh1.com and continues to appear on Vh1 talking head shows such as "Undateable" and "Greatest Songs of the 00s." She recently joined the cast of TruTV's "World's Dumbest" and performed stand-up on TV Guide's all-female comedy series "Stand Up in Stilettos." Lee writes for television, as well. She wrote on Rob Dyrdek's MTV series "Ridiculousness" and is currently writing on "The Midnight Show with Pete Holmes," a new pilot for TBS produced by Conan O'Brien. Lee's acting experience ranges from national commercials to web series to feature film. "Kid Farm," a parody of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" that Lee created with Front Page Films, was featured on HuffingtonPost.com, ComedyCentral.com and BestWeekEver.tv - not to mention tweeted with praise by acclaimed screen writer Diablo Cody. It is now an original series on Comedy Central's Atom.com. Lastly, Lee maintains a hilarious blog called old-kids.com.
