The Unemployed Show
The Unemployed Show
The Unemployed Show is getting up from the couch and going LIVE on a stage for their first ever award show! They’ve aired over 30 episodes and have had some of the city’s funniest [unemployed/freelance] guests. America’s favorite unemployed millennial Anna Roisman hosts the show featuring star performers who also happen to not have jobs, like, on that day. With music, standup, and of course an in memoriam, it's the award show of the season to attend! Pajamas invited, always.

About The Unemployed Show:
The Unemployed Show is a Facebook Live talk show with late night humor, hosted by [employable] comedian Anna Roisman. It’s the spontaneity of Watch What Happens Live meets the millennial chill factor of Broad City. Each week Anna interviews creative people who are either unemployed or “freelance” while sitting in pajamas on her couch, drinking. [Yolo, baby!] Through segments like, “Anna Sells Her Sh*t” (QVC-style) to “Clay Makin: Sculpting Dicks Out Of Clay From Real Dick Pics,” to a “Live Phone Interview While Playing A Drinking Game,” The Unemployed Show celebrates the silver lining of being unemployed with everyone who can relate. It’s the show that people at work wish they were on, instead of secretly watching it on their computers.

Special Guest Janeane Garofalo
Actress and Comedian Janeane Garofalo has been an American institution since she burst on the scene in 1992. In addition to acting in film and television, Janeane is an outspoken activist, spoken word performer and stand-up comedy entertainer known and respected around the country, and the world. As well, she was instrumental in the successful launching of the first liberal radio network, Air America Radio, where she hosted her own talk show, "The Majority Report." A lightning rod for controversy, Janeane's well informed opinions and unflinching honesty have inspired laughs, as well as striking a chord with the left, right and everyone in between. She is a noted peace activist.
Corinne Fisher
CORINNE FISHER is a stand-up comedian, writer & actor originally from Union, NJ. She first made a splash with her debut one-woman show Corinne Fisher: I STALK YOU (Dir. David Crabb) which had a run at The Peoples Improv Theater (The PIT) in the Summer of 2010 and was featured in Time Out New York. Since then, she has been a regular on the stand-up scene playing anything from dive bars to world-famous comedy clubs like Stand Up NY, New York Comedy Club, Caroline's, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, Broadway Comedy Club, Comix, Laugh Boston, The Stress Factory & Gotham. Her second stage show, Almost Former Reality TV Stars, had a run at The PIT in June 2011 and told the true (albeit slightly exaggerated) story of how CORINNE and her real-life best friend, actor/model THOMAS WHITFIELD, were hired, then fired from their very own reality TV show.

Known as @PhilanthropyGal on Twitter (slightly tongue-in-cheek...), in 2012 CORINNE performed in a series of benefit shows for the AFGHAN WOMEN'S WRITING PROJECT alongside other female New York comedians including SNL alum RACHEL DRATCH. She was also selected for the prestigious BOSTON COMEDY FESTIVAL, the WOMEN IN COMEDY FESTIVAL & the SHE-DEVIL FESTIVAL. On YouTube, she is the messed up mind behind the Internet vlogger GINA SPRINKLES and the voice of 'TOIBA' on the cartoon web series MYSTERY SQUAD GALS, the brainchild of RYAN DUFF.

Perhaps most notably, however, CORINNE is 1/2 of SORRY ABOUT LAST NIGHT…, her comedy writing and performance duo with KRYSTYNA HUTCHINSON. In December 2013, the duo launched Guys We Fucked: The Anti Slut-Shaming Podcast that now boasts over half a million subscribers. Having featured celebs such as Dan Savage, Jim Norton and even JENNI 'JWOWW' FARLEY in addition to real gents they've had their way with, the podcast is frequently ranked among the Top 50 podcasts on iTunes and has been featured in The Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, Elle, Bust and more. Previously, the duo wrote and starred in a self-titled sketch show that debuted at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC in the Spring of 2013 (Dir. Jon Bershad) and co-hosted a popular underground comedy variety show of the same name that has had homes at the Brooklyn Winery, The PIT and originated at Gotham City Improv. The show was like the best college keg party you've ever been to and featured comedy faves such as HANNIBAL BURESS, MARK NORMAND & BIG JAY OAKERSON as well as cult folk-rock sensation DAN BERN.

Most recently, CORINNE made her television stand-up debut on FOX's LAUGHS on the special "Under 30" episode. FISHER tours the college circuit regularly with seasoned comics like JIMMY FAILLA, RYAN REISS, BEN HAGUE & TOM KELLY. She has opened for headliners KEVIN MEANEY, COLIN KANE & HARRISON GREENBAUM. She also co-hosts a monthly show at NEW YORK COMEDY CLUB called NACHO BITCHES with West Coast-bred comic-on-the-rise BLAIR SOCCI where the pals show their audience love in the form of free nachos and the stand-up of comedy darlings like GARY GULMAN, YANNIS PAPPAS, KURT METZGER, ARI SHAFFIR, TED ALEXANDRO, and SNL's PETE DAVIDSON & MICHAEL CHE.

CORINNE holds a BFA in Film & Video from the School of Visual Arts and is a graduate of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre's prestigious improvisation training program. She loves ice cream and the Spice Girls.

Sydnee Washington
Sydnee Washington
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.
