As well as wowing and/or bewildering crowds at festivals like the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the New Zealand Comedy Festival and the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival in Brooklyn, she is a TV star at home and makes some great radio.

He was a semi-finalist on America's Got Talent and his charts and writing have appeared in Wired, Fast Company, McSweeney's, and numerous other publications. He designed the cover of the New York Times bestseller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. He was the only comedian to make it to the semi-finals on America's Got Talent in 2010, where he began his unlikely run by winning over an unruly crowd in New York City. He continues to perform standup across the country, but especially in Philadelphia, where he hosts the monthly comedy show the Ministry of Secret Jokes.
Mrs. Smith
Mrs. Smith is an electric guitar virtuoso, philanthropist, and cat lover who has captured the public imagination with her unbridled creative expression in the face of a life filled with grief and rage. With an improbable life-tale that includes a lonesome childhood of privilege, 14 marriages, and show biz stardom and obscurity, Mrs. Smith is a 20th Century creature who has burst through to the internet age to become a sensation. Her heavy-metal comedy cabaret, "While My Guitar Gently Shrieks" was a sold-out hit at Joe's Pub and will be seen at Le Poisson Rouge on Tuesday, March 7th.

Mrs. Smith is the 2016 winner of the "Shred for Your Life" contest held at Webster Hall and was a featured performer at the Guitar Gods Festival in Miami opening up for guitar legends Yngwie Malmsteen and Steve Vai. A video of her shredding on the streets of the East Village was shared byGuitar World Magazine and garnered 1.2 million views. Her unique blend of musical performance comedy has been featured on NBC's America's Got Talent, PBS Television as well as Joe's Pub, American Repertory Theater and Berkeley Repertory Theater. She has also been seen at 54 Below, First Avenue, Webster Hall, Ars Nova, The Laurie Beechman Theater, Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, The Bell House, Union Hall, and the legendary Bushwig Festival, among many others.
