  • Funny Women of a Certain Age
  • Funny Women of a Certain Age Comedy is a show straight from the unfettered mouths and uninhibited minds of the funniest, most daring, most experienced people in comedy: the women that have seen it all.  They’ve raised children both on and off the road with big hairy club bouncers cradling their babies while onstage. These women have stayed in comedy condos where you don’t want to use a blacklight on anything. They’ve been told women aren’t funny and asked to trade sexual favors for work. Trust us, they have A LOT to say, and they say it hysterically.If I had to choose between ageism or sexism, I'd take a pat on the ass any day, since that meant someone noticed me.”- creator Carole MontgomeryFunny Women Of A Certain Age the TV special premiered March 23, 2019 on the Showtime Network to rave reviews.

  • Kelly Cash
  • Kelly Cash wanders a waste of desert sands; a shadow of time and memory, waiting to loose its passionate intensity. On chosen evenings, when the sun drowns the innocence of the plains in its blood-dimmed tide and the darkness draws cold and taut across the tired throats of hungry coyotes and worn ranchers, Kelly Cash rides in from the west, a vexing nightmare, with but a lone purpose: to perform the improv comedy for you and you alone. Kelly Cash is Upright Citizens Brigade improvisers Ken Beck, Corey Brown, Sean Casey, Maelle Doliveux, Rocco Marrongelli, Jeff Miller, and Johnna Scrabis.

  • The Adam Wade Show
  • Adam Wade (Comedy Central's Inside Amy Schumer, NPR regular), a staggering 20-time Moth Story Slam winner, has put together many of his winning heartfelt and humorous stories for this special monthly show. No two shows are the same. A different featured guest will start the evening off.Here's what the critics are saying: "Wade’s narrative persona is a salt-of-the earth guy with a sensitive soul. He tells stories about humiliation and heartache, about small but thrilling human connections and tiny victories that feel huge. The rise of nerd culture has no doubt helped him. Onstage, he seems to be the adolescent misfit within everyone’s soul." - The New Yorker "Adam Wade is one of the best storytellers on the planet" - The Dish "You can't not like him." - Time Out NY “If this endearing storyteller doesn’t make you feel at least a teeny bit warm and fuzzy, check your rib cage, because you may not have a heart.” - Time Out NY “Wade's storytelling prowess stems from a heartfelt honesty that always hits home.” -Time Out NY "Ladies: please do not go to this show if you are currently seeking someone to love. Because Adam Wade will become that person."- Village Voice "The Moth's Adam Wade--so adorable, he's essentially a human kitten with eye-glasses." - Village Voice  "When it comes to public speaking, Adam Wade knows what it takes." - New York Post
