Butterboy with Jo, Aparna and Maeve
Butterboy with Jo, Aparna and Maeve
Three chuckle monsters descend on Littlefield every Monday at 8pm, clutching with them a horde of the freshest, silver-tongued comics and phone sex operators this city has to offer. Legends in their own right, these three friends, Aparna Nancherla, Maeve Higgins and Jo Firestone combine forces to host the funniest and best show in Gowanus! Accompanied by the musical stylings of DJ Donwill and the sensual silence of a rotating Idris Elba impersonator, you won't want to miss it. Plus, find out which parts of this blurb are bold, unapologetic lies!

Jo Firestone is a comedian whose work can be seen on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Chris Gethard Show, and heard on WFMU and Earwolf. She was recently named a New Face at the 2016 Just for Laughs Festival, and her Comedy Central half hour comes out this fall. If you like puns, check out her board game, Punderdome: A Card Game for Pun Lovers. If you don't like puns, don't worry about it. You can also see Jo doing stand-up in different basements around the city.

Aparna Nancherla is a comedian of the stand-up variety, but can often be seen sitting. Last year, she released her debut album, Just Putting It Out There, on Tig Notaro’s new label, Bentzen Ball Records and recorded a Comedy Central half hour special. This year, she was named one of “The 50 Funniest People Right Now” by Rolling Stone. Currently, you can catch her on the latest seasons of Bojack Horseman, Master of None and Love, all on Netflix, as well as on HBO's Crashing. She's also written for Late Night with Seth Meyers (NBC) and Totally Biased (FX). Aparna will next appear on the upcoming Comedy Central show, Corporate.

Maeve Higgins is the host of the hit podcast Maeve In America: Immigration IRL. She has performed all over the world, including in her native Ireland, Edinburgh, Melbourne and, most recently, Erbil.

Her work has been published in The New York Times and The Irish Times, and she is writing a book of essays for Penguin due for publication later this year.
Marcella Arguello
Marcella Arguello
Too lazy to shoot hoops and too tall to model, Marcella Arguello stands over 6 feet. Although she may be taller than most men, the only thing more intimidating than her height is her comedy. Marcella mixes a combination of genuine reason with a sexy suggestion of street. Deemed as “sexually and ethnically ambiguous” she appeals to everyone and is not afraid to tell you how she really feels about subjects concerning race, gender, politic, relationships, family, work, music, pop culture and whatever else is on her mind that day.
Time Out Magazine deemed Marcella an “LA Comedian to Watch in 2017” and is a fan favorite on Comedy Central’s @midnight. Most recently, she won her appearance on TruTv’s Comedy Knock Out and can be seen on The UCB Show’s upcoming second season on Seeso. She was featured on Viceland’s Flophouse, and in 2015 on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly; her stand up has been highlighted on rapper Tyler, The Creator’s mobile app and on Fox’s The Real. Her Twitter account (@marcellacomedy) has been featured on CNN, TIME.com, HuffingtonPost.com and various entertainment websites. She is a regular opener for Last Comic Standing Winner Felipe Esparza as well as NBC Superstore’s Nico Santos. She has opened for David Alan Grier, Norm MacDonald, J.B. Smoove, Hannibal Buress, Ron Funches, Godfrey, Bryan Callen, Aries Spears, Hasan Minhaj, Al Madrigal, Joey Coco Diaz, Melanie Comarcho, Melissa Villaseñor and has shared a stage with Bill Burr, Paul Mooney and Robin Williams.
She has worked at The Improv Comedy Clubs all over the country and is a regular at The Punch Line Comedy Clubs in Northern California. She has performed at San Francisco Sketchfest, Riot LA Comedy Festival, overseas for American troops and comedian Sean Keane referred to her as the “finest export from Modesto since George Lucas.”

Club, and on-line for New York Magazine, MTV, and Bicycling. You can read his book if you'd like, My Dead Dad Was In ZZ Top, which was published by Harper Perennial.
Casey Ley
Casey Ley
Casey Ley’s comedy is silly. And smart. And dirty. And dark. And handsome. It’s a lot like him actually. So it is also self-centered, flakey and relatively promiscuous. He is insecure about his name because Casey is gender non-specific and his last name is pronounced Lie but everyone pronounces it Lee or Lay. As a result, people often expect a Korean woman or a potato chip when they hear his name and while Casey Ley is many things he is unfortunately not a Korean woman nor a potato chip. He blames his parents for everything he is and everything he is not.

The readers of SF Weekly voted him best comic in San Francisco in 2012 (which had nothing to do with his homosexuality), and in 2013 he was runner-up in The Advocate Magazine's Next Great Queer Comedy competition (which was wholly the result of his homosexuality). Apparently he wasn't quite gay enough last year. In 2014 he kicked it up a notch and headlined the Rainbow Connection Queer Comedy Tour or as it was described in a slightly homophobic review, "the gaygegaygaygegaygay comedy tour." Sure, you are right, that is a lot of gay. But don't worry because Casey and his shows have also appeared in national comedy festivals like SFSketchfest, the Moontower Comedy and Arts Festival in Austin, TX, Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR, on the radio on the relatively popular NPR station, and he has shared the stage with comics you know like Hannibal Buress, Doug Benson, Janeane Garofalo, Todd Barry, Mike Birbiglia, Laura Kightlinger and some other people you've heard of if you like comedy and are straight or whatever you want.

Jordan Carlos
Jordan Carlos
A product of a 'Huxtable-like' upbringing, Jordan Carlos, is a
Brooklyn-based stand up comic brought up on the mean streets of suburban North Dallas where he was the only black kid in class and at all the Bar Mitzvahs. He’s appeared most notably as Stephen Colbert’s black friend “Alan” on the Colbert Report, and performed his stand up on Comedy Central’sLive at Gotham,” The Montreal “Just for Laughs” Comedy, and various New York Comedy Festivals. “
Simeon Goodson
Simeon Goodson
Simeon Goodson is a native of Brooklyn, NY who has been performing in the comedy clubs, bars, and alternative venues of New York City since 2004. He has opened for SNL’s Michael Che at Caroline’s on Broadway, performed across the United States with the “Comedy’s Best Kept Secret Tour” and performed on Hannibal Burress’ “Comedy Camisado Tour”. Simeon’s comedy style is self described as a verbal manifestation of his inner conflict. “Constantly battling within are opposing forces, on one hand urging me to be an upstanding citizen and on the other an intimate desire to punch you in the face.” His clever writing and unconventional delivery allow him to do both.
