Hello. My name is Lorelei Ramirez. I'm an artist, comedian, and writer. I originally hail from the swampland of Miami, FL where I developed into a girl and/or woman with a fondness of wearing sweaters, making drawings and moving my head strange. (please see video's*). I am a writer for VICE'S The Creators Project, where I write about art and comedy, I am a self-published author, an artist, and yesterday I went to the DMV and renamed myself "Micheal Keaton".

Melody Kamali is a stand-up comedian and writer based in New York City. She started comedy in the venerable Chicago comedy scene where she worked her way up from open mics to clubs to a televised set on Chicago’s own WCIU (Chicago’s One Night Stand-Up). She’s performed in festivals including the All Jane Festival, The Comedy Exposition, and the Chicago Women’s Funny Festival. Melody is a queer, first-generation Iranian woman. Those intersections of her life make for an awareness and appreciation of the absurd, and an almost confessional style of comedy she delights crowds with across New York.

Sabrina Wu is a stand-up comic, originally from Michigan, now living in Brooklyn. She’s a Moth StorySLAM and GrandSLAM Champion and has opened for comedian Cameron Esposito.
