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.

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.

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!

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.

Since moving to Chicago, Jeff has become a regular at the Chicago Laugh Factory, Zanies, and several independent comedian run shows including his own "This Weeks Show" in Wrigleyville. His off beat humor goes along nicely with his expressive yet creepy face. Growing up in northern Michigan surrounded by trees and dirt roads will make any kid a weirdo and Jeff has no problem telling you about it. Jeff has showcased at numerous theaters and festivals including The Cleveland Comedy Festival, Laugh your Asheville Off in North Carolina, and Laughfest in Grand Rapids Michigan.
Sydnee Washington was born in New York City but spent most of her childhood in Oakland, California. She has a laid back approach to life which makes the bite to her comedy only slightly more palatable. Sydnee co-hosts a super high energy and consistently funny monthly Comedy show in the Lower East Side called 'The Warm Up.' There she hones her skills for the various spots and hosting gigs she has where she consistently wins over the jaded New Yorkers who brave the City’s comedy scene. Her humor and view toward vanity, dating both sexes, and how to party safely as a woman are both unique and refreshing.
