Kira Soltanovich
Kira Soltanovich
Kira Soltanovich developed much of her Amazon Special "You Did This To Me" at UnCabaret while she was hormone crazed and pregnant. She also appears in our Amazon series.

Kira has also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Set List, 3rd Rock From The Sun, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She's a recurring stand-up comic on the E! Network, VH1's All Access, and Love Lounge and was a series regular for four seasons on the Oxygen and Nationally syndicated show, Girls Behaving Badly.

Kira headlines in comedy clubs and colleges throughout the country, and has toured the world entertaining the troops in USO shows.

Kira has been a winner, finalist and semi-finalist in a myriad of comedy competitions and festivals, including Comedy Central's Laugh Riots, California's Funniest Female, Seattle International Comedy Festival, and the Boston Comedy Festival. Kira will perform at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in the summer of 2005.

Based on her writing and acting, she was selected to be a part of the ABC Comedy Development Showcase where she was named "Hottest new writer". She has shot several pilots this year, including a Pilot Presentation for Comedy Central. You might also hear Kira as the voice of "Carla", a teenage know-it-all, on the animated series, Iggy Cool.

She grew up in San Francisco during a time when there were bad neighborhoods, cheap coffee and it wasn't ironic to ride the cable cars.

She began her comedy career back in 1998 right after asking her Russian immigrant parents if they were copacetic with her desires to become a stand up comedian. After her mother and father confessed "It's not like you're smart enough to be a doctor" Kira took that as their blessing to pursue her dreams and she's never looked back.

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.
