Erin Judge is a comedian, novelist, culture writer, producer, actor, and highly opinionated traveling nightclub entertainer based in Los Angeles. “Judge tells jokes that incinerate misogynists, celebrate the fluidity of gender, and wring thoughtful hilarity out of sexual confusion.” —The Village Voice, August 2016
Erin started out doing stand-up at the best comedy club in the world: the Comedy Studio in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Since then, she’s appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing (2014), on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham (2008), and at lots of festivals, including Women in Comedy, Bridgetown, Boston, and Laugh Your Asheville Off, as well as Eugene Mirman’s eponymous one.

Mike Dorval “One of Boston’s Best”. In a city famous for great comedians, that’s how The Boston Globe described Mike Dorval. After doing comedy for only three months, Mike won the New Hampshire Comedy Festival, beating out some of the most established comics in New England and soon became one of the youngest headliners in Boston history. Mike has been featured in Comedy Central’s Laugh Riots, numerous television commercials, and stars in the upcoming independent film, “Dick Spicketts”. Most recently he toured overseas for the USO, entertaining thousands of US military personnel abroad and released his first live comedy album entitled, “We need to talk…”. Mike’s takes on his Catholic upbringing, love life, and the insanity of the world around him have entertained audiences at colleges and clubs across the country and prompted The Boston Herald to exclaim, “Michael Dorval is hilarious!”
