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. Now based in New York, she's made a name for herself there too. In a good way! She co-hosts Neil deGrasse Tyson's StarTalk on National Geographic and has appeared in Comedy Central's Inside Amy Schumer. 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.

Nicole Calasich
Nicole Calasich
Nicole Calasich is a Bolivian-American comedian based in SF & LA and actively hungry right now. Her jokes have been on Comedy Central, her face on ABCdigital. Her humor is big-words smartcool and her incisive audience rapport is the dumbest. Fans have told her “You make me proud to be a woman” and “I hope you get better soon.” CurbedSF called her a “hot” comic, but not in a creepy way. You may have seen her open for Michael Che, Dan Cummins, Ali Wong, or Iliza Shlesinger, but she is mostly waiting for Cardi B to notice her and give the OKURRRR.

Nicole produces live comedy shows including Jokelandish in Oakland, GOATS in SF (July 2018), and Resistance is Fertile aka RIF Comedy on both coasts. RIF Comedy inverts the typical showcase experience by featuring a predominantly female or queer lineup with one token male; shows run in NY, LA, and SF beginning July 2018. She is the founder and co-host of BOCpodcast, a QWOC-friendly podcast available on SoundCloud and iTunes. Basically, you have a lot of opportunities to hear her talk sh*t.
