Julie Goldman
Julie Goldman
Julie Goldman starred on The People's Couch on Bravo, where she also appeared in Vanderpump Rules After Show and in The Big Gay Sketch Show on the Logo television network. As an actress she has appeared on Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Mindy Project and The Sopranos. And she and her writing partner Brandy Howard wrote for Joan Rivers on Fashion Police on E!.

Her first stand-up performance was at The Comedy Connection in Boston, Massachusetts, at the age of 15. Julie founded an all-women's stand-up and variety show called "OFFENSIVE WOMEN" and recruited Eve Ensler to sponsor their biggest show to date at The Zipper Theater in NYC.

Goldman is a frequent guest on Jonny McGovern's weekly podcast Gay Pimpin' with Jonny McGovern.

Goldman is working on raising money for Nicest Thing, a feature-length, lesbian romantic comedy that she co-wrote with Brandy. Goldman and Howard are producing the movie with Amanda Bearse who is also slated to direct. Other attachments include Tammy Lynn Michaels, Guinevere Turner, Kate Clinton, Paul Vogt, Bryce Johnson and Kate McKinnon.

Julie Goldman and Brandy Howard co-host Julie & Brandy in Your Box Office, a webseries on lesbian website Autostraddle, in which they provide reviews and re-enactments of movies. In "In Your Box Office FOR REAL," Julie & Brandy go behind the scenes for events like The Michigan Womyn's Music Festival and The VH1 DO Something Awards, where Julie performed with Jane Lynch.



Goldman appeared as a contestant on the second season of RuPaul's Drag U the summer of 2011.
Justin Sayre
Justin Sayre
Justin is a writer most recently for 2 Broke Girls on CBS. He is the author of Husky, and Pretty, young adult books (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 in residence at Joe's Pub.

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.
Kevin Yee
Kevin Yee
Comedian Kevin Yee and his original satirical songs have been making people laugh across America and beyond! He is a recovering Broadway chorus boy (MARY POPPINS, WICKED tour, and MAMMA MIA Canada), and a former member of Quincy Jones’s boy band YOUTH ASYLUM.

Recent news features include The Atlantic, Gawker, News & Observer, The Guardian, Out, Cosmopolitan, E! online, and the CBC.

Recent comedy festivals include NC Comedy Arts Festival (Headliner), Cape Fear, Blue Whale, Memphis, Scruffy City, Out Of Bounds, Cinder Block, and Honolulu Sketch Festival.

Recent Pride festivals include Boston (Host, featuring Estelle and Mary Lambert), Washington (Host), San Diego, and Brooklyn.
Alex Edelman
Alex Edelman
n 2014, Alex Edelman, a New York-based, Boston-raised comedian, performed an hour-long show called Millennial at the Edinburgh Fringe. That hour won a Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, revealed Edelman to the international stand-up community as one of its brightest young talents, and subsequently enjoyed nice runs and performances in London, Australia, New York, Los Angeles, and Sweden (!).



Edelman’s 2015 follow-up show, Everything Handed to You, has garnered even more unanimous acclaim. It sold out its entire run at this year’s Fringe and earned a bushel full of great reviews – it was the second best reviewed comedy show at the entire Festival – and its first work-in-progress performance, at the Leicester Comedy Festival, garnered Edelman a nomination for Best New Show.



Both of Edelman’s hours have examined his position amongst his peer group and he has written intelligently about Millennials in The Guardian, The Atlantic, among other places.



Also, some other credits if you need them: He’s been opening for Simon Amstell a bunch this past year, which was really fun even though Simon is vegan. He’s also opened for Patton Oswalt, and toured with Eddie Izzard in Berlin and Moscow (!). He was a New Face of Comedy at Just For Laugh’s Festival in Montreal – which is like a big deal to comedy people and apparently two of your cousins – and, TV-wise, he’s done a surprising amount of Australian stuff, been on Comedy Central’s Comics To Watch and The John Bishop Show recently. He wore a suit on the latter and at the time his girlfriend said he looked handsome in his suit.

Although he has no personal life to speak of, he enjoys Italian food and David Foster Wallace.
Maggie Maye
Maggie Maye
Maggie Maye's stand up has been featured on Conan and in festivals such as Bridgetown Comedy Festival, FunFunFun Fest, Moontower Comedy & Oddity Festival, and the All Jane No Dick Comedy Festival. She's opened for Godfrey, Paul Mooney, and Earth, Wind and Fire. She's had her name in comedy articles in the Huffington Post, LaughSpin, the New York Times, and the Portland Mercury. She performs and writes sketch comedy for The Hustle Show and her sketch duo, AFL. Her comedy is described in the same way she is: sassy, charming, and smart. Also, a 6-year-old once told her she was the funniest person ever. And kids rarely lie.
