Jack Ludlum
Jack has been performing in clubs and bars all over the tristate area since 2011. His biggest influences include George Carlin, Doug Stanhope, Patrice O’Neal, and Colin Quinn. You can find him on Instagram @jackludlum93

Jorja Metz
Jorja is Westchester’s own stand up comic and nurse humorist.  You may die laughing in her audience, but won’t because she knows CPR.  She has appeared on the Staten Island Comedy Show, Comic Strip Live, was the 3rd place winner of The Jody Oliver Comedy Contest, and is a regular on the Danny Dechi Doctor, Teacher & Rockin Roller Comedy Show.

Graham Friel
In the summer of 2022, whilst in the throes of sobriety and tired of being ignored at home, Graham got behind the mic at the Broadway Comedy Club. Since then he’s plied his brand of Irish humor at open mics city wide.

Tim Deery
Our resident Performer/Producer/Book Man, Tim has run 9 Stand Up Comedy Showcases, 54 Comedy Open Mic’s, 4 FerryCon‘s, 3 Local Filmmakers Spotlight‘s, and 85 Cult Classic MovieNight‘s for DFPL, which, if you’re keeping count, requires a lot of fingers & toes.  His latest on screen work was as the vampire Owen, who sucks, in the music video “Owen Is A Dracula”.  He completed his goal of #1FunnyTweet a day for 2022 and continues to tweet his irreverent inklings to the beat of his own drummer.

Geordan Mallas
Good guy.  Local guy.
