Two days after Michelle Slonim gave birth to a baby girl, Michelle received an email saying she was cast in a sketch for Late Night With Seth Meyers. Michelle had gone on tons of auditions: once in a chicken costume, another time in a bikini while eight months pregnant, and she never got the part. Now a week after her baby was welcomed into the world, Michelle’s in hair, makeup and wardrobe, on set for a major network television show. She plans to have a second child so she can make an appearance on Conan. Check out her side hustle putting on stand-up comedy shows in people's living rooms: www.drawingroomcomedy.com

With a family spread across two continents and a career as a globe trotting television producer, Justin brings a unique international perspective to stand up through which he can talk about himself, the world and why he'd rather go to prison in Norway than live in Alabama.

Most recently he worked as the supervising producer on multiple comedy shows, including the BET sketch comedy / variety show '50 Central' and the Comedy Central pilot 'This Week At The Comedy Cellar' which was picked up to series.
Matt Koff is an Emmy-winning television writer and stand-up comedian. He currently writes for The Daily Show With Trevor Noah. He's also written for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

As a stand-up, Matt has appeared on Adam Devine’s House Party on Comedy Central and The History Channel series I Love the 1880s. He has toured with John Oliver, Michael Ian Black, and Bo Burnham. When Matt is not doing stand-up, he is usually eating a gyro in the rain.
A Canadian, a Palestinian, a Muslim, and a lesbian walk into a bar … ladies and gentlemen, it’s just Eman El-Husseini. Yes, she’s all those catastrophic identities rolled into one — her life is a current event. From the Muslim ban to Palestinian rights and marriage equality to the ice cream truck that insists on parking in front of her building, it’s all happening and it’s happening to her, especially. Strap in and get comfortable, Eman has a lot to work through. In her decade-long comedy career, Eman has headlined across Canada, opened for Patton Oswalt, and recorded her first comedy album, “Unveiled,” which can be heard regularly on SiriusXM Radio. She currently lives in New York City, legally, thank you very much.
