Justin Sayre
Justin Sayre
Justin is currently a writer for 2 Broke Girls on CBS-TV and is the author of Husky, a young adult book (Penguin Books) and is best know as the creator and host of The Meeting of the International Order of Sodomites, the acclaimed comedy/variety show.

The Meeting* was named among the Top nightclub shows of 2013 by Time Out New York, and received the 2012 Bistro Award for “Comedy Artistry” and a 2011 MAC Award nomination for Best Male Comedy Performance.

He was described by Michael Musto in The Village Voice as “Oscar Wilde meets Whoopi Goldberg.” In a recent story for Edge New York, Steve Weinstein said ”Comedian, raconteur, performing artist, gay rights activist and sexual outlaw: I’m not sure Justin Sayre is classifiable. The veteran performer is on his way to becoming a Downtown Manhattan institution along the lines of Charles Ludlum or Charles Busch.” Justin is a child of Forty Fort, Pennsylvania who demonstrated a supernatural instinct for “camp” at an early age. With a voice straight out the MGM finishing school for girls, he moved to New York believing it was still 1947. He was terribly misinformed.

As an actor, he has worked and studied with some of the finest professionals in the city. As a comedian, Sayre is regular guest at Homo-Comicus at the Gotham Comedy Club and contributing writer to Murray Hill’s ShowBiz on MTVX. As a gay, Justin has excelled at scarf placement, devilish quips, and a healthy but firm love of the American musical.

An evening of his short plays, Justin Sayre Is Alive and Well… Writing – called one of the “Top 10 Events on the New York Stage” by the New York Daily News – sold out two shows at Ars Nova in 2012. Sayre’s play, The Click of the Lock, was a finalist for the Eugene O’Neill Theater Conference and debuted at The Cherry Lane Theatre starring Randy Harrison. Sayre is a contributor to The Huffington Post and Flavorwire, as well offering playful and witty love advice at The Date Report.

“The Gay Agenda” – his debut comedy/spoken word album – was released in Fall 2014.

Eliot Chang
Eliot Chang
Eliot Chang's "Comedy Central Presents" half hour special was voted #2 in the Comedy Central Stand Up Showdown 2011. Other TV appearance include E!'s "Chelsea Lately" and Showtime's "Minority Report." Eliot has performed at over 400 colleges.

In a comedic landscape that is often wrought with sarcasm, self deprecation, and cynicism, Eliot Chang is a welcome relief! His point of view is honest and real yet marked by a fun positive energy that is genuine and refreshing. (That is something that sets him apart - the fact that he is still funny with this attitude and energy that other people try to put forth and it comes off as an act). He's simply fun to watch and makes me laugh. "
