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.

Nicole Calasich
Nicole Calasich
Nicole Calasich is a Bolivian-American comedian based in SF & LA and actively hungry right now. Her jokes have been on Comedy Central, her face on ABCdigital. Her humor is big-words smartcool and her incisive audience rapport is the dumbest. Fans have told her “You make me proud to be a woman” and “I hope you get better soon.” CurbedSF called her a “hot” comic, but not in a creepy way. You may have seen her open for Michael Che, Dan Cummins, Ali Wong, or Iliza Shlesinger, but she is mostly waiting for Cardi B to notice her and give the OKURRRR.

Nicole produces live comedy shows including Jokelandish in Oakland, GOATS in SF (July 2018), and Resistance is Fertile aka RIF Comedy on both coasts. RIF Comedy inverts the typical showcase experience by featuring a predominantly female or queer lineup with one token male; shows run in NY, LA, and SF beginning July 2018. She is the founder and co-host of BOCpodcast, a QWOC-friendly podcast available on SoundCloud and iTunes. Basically, you have a lot of opportunities to hear her talk sh*t.
Devon Walker
Devon Walker
Originally from Austin, Devon Walker is a stand-up living in New York City, recently heralded as a “young phenom” and “millennial wunderkind." He was featured at the 2016 Moontower and Out of Bounds comedy festivals and was named a finalist in the 2017 Funniest Person in Austin competition. Devon was selected as a Comic to Watch for the “Up Next” show at Comedy Central’s Clusterfest last year and performed at the Big Sky Comedy Festival.
Sonia Denis
Sonia Denis
Sonia Denis is a New York-based comedian by way of Chicago, IL. Sonia’s stand-up can be described as confessional, frenetic and another cool adjective. Sonia was recently named one of Comedy Central's 2016 Comics to Watch at the New York Comedy Festival. She co-stars in the critically acclaimed Emmy nominated web-series BROWN GIRLS. Her writing has been featured on McSweeney’s Internet Tendency and Brightest Young Things.
Atheer Yacoub
Atheer Yacoub
Atheer Yacoub is a New York based comedian and writer. Atheer's comedy draws from her personal experience growing up as a Palestinian-Muslim in Alabama. She came to the city with high hopes of making it in a respectable career, but found herself in comedy instead. She makes her traditional Arab mother proud by standing in front of complete strangers and talking about her mismatched upbringing, her misadventures in the big city, and the psychological baggage both entail. Atheer hopes to make you laugh, or at the very least, redefine what audiences think when they hear "Arab" and "bomb" in the same sentence. Inspired by everything from Lucille Ball to Dave Chappelle, Atheer wants to bring her unique perspective to the larger comedy world in the vain hopes that someone out there can prescribe her the right pills to make it all better.

Atheer is a writer on The Breakdown with Mehdi Barakchian and Passport Control with Mehdi Barakchian, which aired on BRICTV. Atheer recently made her TV debut on Gotham Comedy Live, which aired on AXSTV. She co-hosts The No Fly List Podcast and has also been featured in the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Festival, Toronto's SheDot Festival, The New York Arab American Comedy Festival, The Big Brown Comedy Hour, and 1001 Laughs Dearborn Comedy Festival.
Sammy Obeid
Sammy Obeid
Lebanese-Syrian-Palestinian-Italian American (try saying it really fast) Sammy knows a lot about mixin’ it up. After double majoring in Business and Math at UC Berkeley -- which is why he does comedy now -- Obeid blends his college experience with his love for being the life of the party, breaking down the latest trending topics into woke jokes that make you laugh your abs into a six pack while simultaneously getting smarter. Voted "Fastest Rising Star” in Campus Activities Magazine, Sammy has appeared on NBC's America's Got Talent, Last Comic Standing, TBS’s Conan, and often reminds strangers that he was the first comedian to ever tell jokes on the Food Network (sorry Rachel Ray). In 2013, he may have even impressed his parents by setting a world record of performing comedy 1,001 consecutive nights, with his story featured in Time Magazine and The New York Times. Also, he’s running for President in 2036, so mark your calendar! Sammy has appeared on NBC's America's Got Talent, NBC's Last Comic Standing, Conan O'Brien on TBS CoExist Comedy The Movie on the Starz Network, Food Network, The CoExist Comedy Tour, and was a SF International Comedy Competition Finalist.
