Paris is a comedienne, actor, writer, and producer from Washington, D.C., currently residing in New York. Her command as a seasoned storyteller makes even the mundane experience feel like an adventure. Audiences across the country fall in love with her infectious laugh, wit, and style.
Nothing can stop Paris’ ascension to stardom, unequivocally one of the funniest rising comediennes with highlighted performances at Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal along with appearances on Comedy Central, Pause on HBO Max, and BET 50 Central. Tiffany Haddish mentioned Paris on the most recent season of her Netflix comedy specials ‘She Ready.’ Her comedy special can be seen on ‘Unprotected Sets on EPIX’ produced by Wanda Sykes.
Paris has worked with Micheal Che, Dick Gregory, Wanda Sykes, Lil Rel, and Roy Wood Jr. offering her piercing insight on issues of the day.

Matt is a stand-up comedian based in Washington, D.C. Over the course of a few years he has quickly become one of the bright new faces in the local scene as well as performing around the country in comedy clubs and festivals.
From his election speech as class president to state-mandated AA meetings, Deakins always had a knack for impressing audiences with his wit and delivery.
His unique perspective developed from a lifetime of playing sports and working on construction sites and in factories.
He was named Division 3 offensive player of the week during his senior year. That has nothing to do with comedy, but he thinks it’s important for you to know he’s good at everything and generally better than most people.
Since beginning stand-up he has performed on bar shows and at comedy clubs across the country including the DC Improv, Vermont Comedy Club, Cobb’s Comedy Club in San Francisco, and Zanies Comedy Club in Nashville. He has worked with headliners Jordan Carlos, Trevor Wallace, Bret Ernst, and Jon Huck. He has headlined smaller venues across the East Coast and his favorite highway is Route 68. Try it out.
Born and raised in Washington, D.C., Christian Escoto began performing comedy after his high school graduation. Since then, he regularly performs around the D.C.-area and the Baltimore region.

He has performed multiple times at the DC Drafthouse Comedy Theater, the DC Improv, the Howard Theater and has opened for Jordan Klepper, Adam Ferrara, Sheng Wang, Robin Tran, Helen Hong and JR De Guzman.
