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.
Stand-Up comedian, actor, rapper, writer and coffee expert Rob Cantrell has been seen on several TV networks, he has made appearances most recently (2013) on Comedy Central’s “Colbert Report with Stephen Colbert” and FX’s “Totally Biased with W Kamau Bell”. From 2010-12, Cantrell performed in two full-length Hip-Hop music videos shown on Comedy Central’s “Atom Films” TV program, he was seen in a promo for HBO’s “Flight Of The Concords” and toured in the long running play “The Marijuana-Logues”. He has performed at Bonnaroo, SXSW and the New Music Seminar. On June 1st 2013, Rob released his first all music comedy album titled “Dreams Never Die” with 7 original songs. Rob is based in Brooklyn, NY. He was born and raised in Washington DC, but spent part of his youth in a small town in southern Virginia enjoying cheese biscuits. Cantrell first started performing stand-up comedy when he moved to San Francisco after graduating from college with an English Degree and a brown corduroy jacket with paisley patches on the sleeves. After three years of performing Stand-Up in San Francisco, he gained national attention as a top ten finalist on the very first season “Last Comic Standing” on NBC television. He then moved to LA for a while, enjoyed it, but decided he wanted to hone his craft in New York City. He moved to New York in 2005, he now lives in the “County Of Kings” and enjoys designing rainbows with his mind.
Carmen Lynch is a half-Spaniard who fell into comedy by accident. She wasn't getting any acting roles because all the boys getting cast were shorter than her...and no one wanted to cast a tall female w/ a short male. "What's wrong w/ that" she asks "I see comedy all over that". Unfortunately she had to go for something she could do alone - stand up was the answer. Carmen Lynch also got to the finals of Last Comic Standing Season One, Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Aspen Comedy Festival.
Sean Patton is a comedian based in New York and Los Angeles by way of New Orleans. He cut his teeth doing stand-up in the the Crescent city and has since performed at Caroline’s, The Comedy Cellar, Gotham, The Improv, UCBNY, UCBLA, The Melbourne International comedy festival, The Montreal Just for Laughs comedy festival, and many other clubs around the US and Canada. Sean made his basic cable debut on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” his Network TV debut on “Late night with Jimmy Fallon,” and he recently appeared on “Conan”.
Sheng Wang is a Taiwanese Texan who developed and honed his comedy in the thriving stand up community of the San Francisco Bay Area. He performs jokes based on personal experiences with intense honesty and ill logic. In addition to touring with the Comedians of Comedy and American Eagle’s Campus Comedy Challenge, he has also appeared on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham and on the AZN Network. In 2007, Sheng was selected to perform at the prestigious ‘Just for Laughs’ comedy festival in Montreal.
George Peyton Gordon III (yes that is his real name) is a comedian from Dale City, VA, (or as he likes to call it, the great state of Virginia). He currently lives in New York City where you can see his stand-up almost every night, then argue with him about things like which is the better Weezer album—Pinkerton or Blue (definitely Pinkerton)—or why Alien is better than Aliens (because it just is). He has been in the New York Underground Festival, The Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR, The Out of Bounds Comedy Festival in Austin, TX and his writing has been included in the blog Rock Bottom. He has an unhealthy obsession with using parentheses.
