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.

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.

Emily Flake
Emily Flake
Hi there. I'm Emily. I'm a cartoonist and illustrator. Welcome to my website. I live in Brooklyn, NY, with my husband, our daughter, and a small orange cat. My illustration work has been in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Globe and Mail, Newsweek, and lots and lots of other places. I make cartoons for The New Yorker, mostly, but also sometimes MAD Magazine, the New Statesman, and other places. I had a weekly strip called Lulu Eightball that carried the jokes that are too vulgar for grown-up publications and too racy for MAD, back when alt-weeklies were strong and we were young.

I wrote and drew a book called These Things Ain't Gonna Smoke Themselves (Bloomsbury USA). I also wrote and drew a book of cartoons and essays called Mama Tried. It is about parenting and was published by Grand Central Publishing. You can buy it here. I also perform, using the magic of PowerPoint and/or markers, for adults and children. I co-host a quarterly-ish comedy show called Shitshow with NPR's Ophira Eisenberg; it's comedy about parenting, and yes I'm really milking the whole being-a-mom thing.
Alzo Slade
Alzo Slade
Alzo Slade thinks it's kinda weird to write about himself in third person so I won't. I'm from the South (Florida, Mississippi and Texas...yep all of em). I've won a couple comedy competitions, hustled my way into Just for Laughs Comedy Festival and I play clubs, bars and all the other stuff that's supposed to be said in comedy bios. Truth is...I just like laughing. It's fun. Especially when other folx are doing it with you...although laughing alone is pretty dope/weird too.
Chloe Radcliffe
Chloe Radcliffe
Chloe Radcliffe is a Minneapolis-based comic recently named a TBS Comic To Watch at the New York Comedy Festival. Chloe’s comedy is all smiles, no matter how exasperated she is with the world around her. She balances being incredulous with being delightful, and draws from her experience of having a huge birthmark on her cheek (but she doesn’t talk about it too much…or, just enough? Whatever’s correct). In 2017, Chloe was a Semifinalist in StandUp NBC and listed as one of the top five comics in the Twin Cities. She was a quarterfinalist in the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, and performed at the Women In Comedy and Oddblock festivals. She is on the production team for Minneapolis’ 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival, entering its eighth year.

Chloe helps run the Comedy Corner Underground, a comic-run club in Minneapolis, where she produces REAL SHIT, a comedy and storytelling show. She is a paid opener at all clubs in the Twin Cities, including Acme and the House of Comedy. Along with standup, she produces house sketch shows in her living room, writing and performing personal, grounded sketches for alt-comedy audiences. Chloe competed in speech & debate for ten years, and won two national championships at the college level. She worked as a corporate speechwriter for three years until she was laid off. Before she started stand-up, adults used to tell her she was “so successful.”
