asembl (not so) live #5: comedy in cyberspace
We watched the Tiger King. And everything else on Netflix. Definitely need something more to keep us sane. And what better than a laugh? With live comics and a live audience. In cyberspace. Check it out.
Here's how it works:
- Get Zoom here (it's super simple to use and free).
- Hit the "Join the show" button below at 8:00 p.m. on Monday, March 30 to join. You can RSVP and add to your calendar here or on Facebook (shudder).
- Turn on your microphone and/or camera so we can hear everybody laugh and feel together (also: behave).
- Our amazing comedians do 10 minute sets each.
- You laugh a great deal.
- Donate. We're not putting up a paywall since we want everyone to easily join but we'd appreciate your donating $5 (or more!). Everybody's gigs went poof so a bit of cash would be highly appreciated.
On to the talent. First up is Chloe Radcliffe.
Chloe is a NYC-based comic and writer for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. She was named a TBS Comic To Watch at the New York Comedy Festival, has been seen on Epix, and was selected for NBC's 2019 Late Night Writers Workshop. Originally from Minnesota, her comedy is all smiles, no matter how exasperated she is with the world around her. In 2018, Chloe was listed as one of Thrillist's 50 Best Undiscovered Comics. She produced Minneapolis' 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival from 2017-2019.
Chloe competed in speech & debate for ten years, and won two national championships at the college level. She worked as a corporate speechwriter for three years until she was laid off. Before she started stand-up, adults used to tell her she was “so successful.”
Next up: Ray Zawodni.
Ray has been called a son, a brother, a lover and a loser, but he mostly prefers to be called funny. Over the past decade, this lovable man-child has entertained audiences all over the country with hilarious tales about his dysfunctional family, his party animal lifestyle and his train-wreck of a dating life. He is a regular feature act at the Pittsburgh Improv, Helium Comedy Club in Buffalo and the Funny Farm. Working these clubs has allowed him to share the stage with the likes of Tom Segura, Paul Virzi, Joe DeRosa and Tammy Pescatelli. Before leaving his hometown of Pittsburgh, he was a regular on the critically acclaimed WDVE Morning Show. Ray is currently writing on a show for Jeff and Larry's Comedy Roundup on Sirius XM.
Then, Sam Evans.
Sam is a comic originally from Cincinnati, OH. After winning the 2012 Funniest Person in Cincinnati competition, Sam relocated to New York City in order to pursue comedy further, and was rewarded in 2014, when he was selected as one of the New Faces of the Just For Laughs comedy festival. He has been featured on the Audible comedy podcast "Sounds Like America".
And finally, Sydnee Washington.
Sydnee is a comedian, actor, and very hot model based in New York. She co-hosts both The Unofficial Expert podcast and Comedy at the Knitting Factory on Sundays. She also recently completed the Comedy Central Digital Creators Program and appeared on Comedy Central’s 2018 Up Next stand-up showcase series.
When this is all over, you'll need to go out. And also re-introduce yourself to your friends. asembl is the perfect tool to make doing both better. Check it out for all the best things going on and the easiest way to gather a group to do those things with.
