    Michelle Wolf
    Michelle Wolf
    Michelle Wolf is a NY-based writer and standup comedian and one of the fastest rising comedic talents in the city. She currently works as a writing supervisor on Late Night with Seth Meyers, where she also made her late night television debut as a comic in July 2014. Michelle appears regularly on the show in various bits and as the popular reoccurring character she created, “Grown-Up Annie.” She has also appeared on Comedy Central’s hit late night gameshow @ Midnight.

    Recently named on Vulture’s list of “50 Comedians You Should Know in 2015” and one of “The Top 10 Funniest Women in NYC” by TimeOut New York, Michelle was also named one of Complex Magazine’s 50 Funniest Comedians on Twitter (@michelleisawolf) and selected as one of the “New Faces of Comedy” for the 2014 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Prior to her work on Late Night, Michelle was a writer and producer on MTV’s popular show Girl Code.

    Michelle headlines comedy clubs and colleges all over the country. She has performed at the Riot LA Comedy Festival and as part of the San Francisco Sketchfest Dozen. This summer she will continue the festival circuit with performances at Moontower, Bonnaroo and the Dublin Comedy Festival.

    Matteo Lane is a New York-based comedian, originally from Chicago who is currently appearing on MTV2's Guy Code.

    Before starting stand up, Matteo lived in Italy as an oil painter and Opera singer. After realizing that he can’t become Maria Callas, Matteo began telling jokes to strangers in dark rooms. Matteo has performed in the TBS Just for Laughs Festival, has been heard on SiriusXM and “Keith and the Girl,” and co-hosts a monthly variety show at the Creek and the Cave.
    Janelle James
    Janelle James is a Caribbean born comic who started doing standup in the midwest. Moving to the midwest was such a jarring experience that Janelle, already a person prone to melodramatic mood swings quickly fell down a hole into deep depression. A chance conversation with a neighbor about a local open mic led to Janelle trying to reap the benefits of talk therapy without the bills (or therapist) and trying her hand at stand up comedy. Janelle's stand up is a mix of raunch, family life and morbid thoughts about depression and aging. She has featured all over the midwest and NYC in such places as The Jukebox Comedy Club, NY Comedy Club and The Knitting Factory. She was a top three finalist in both the 2011 Laugh Comedy Competition and the 2012 Jukebox Comedy Competition. Janelle has also traveled extensively as the feature act with veteran comics and performed at the 2013 Bridgetown and Limestone comedy festivals.. When not performing, Janelle can be found tweeting the boredom away @janellejcomic or complaining to anyone who'll listen about how having kids makes it so much harder to move into a van and live the glamorous life of a road comic.
    Julio Torres
    Julio Torres
    Julio Torres is a Brooklyn-based comedian and Space Prince who currently writes for Saturday Night Live. His abilities have also been put to use in the most recent seasons of The Chris Gethard Show and Billy on the Street. As a standup Julio was named a New Face of the Montreal Comedy Festival, a Comedy Central Comic to Watch and a finalist for Standup NBC. The New York Times has called him “avant-guarde,” “intriguing,” but most importantly: “young.”

    It is hard to say where Julio first appeared, but some say it was in El Salvador before moving to New York to go to The New School.
    Jo Firestone
    Jo Firestone
    Jo Firestone is a comedian and writer based in Brooklyn, New York. Her work has been featured on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Chris Gethard Show on Fusion.
