Corrine Fisher
CORINNE FISHER is a stand-up comedian, writer & actor originally from Union, NJ. She first made a splash with her debut one-woman show Corinne Fisher: I STALK YOU (Dir. David Crabb) which had a run at The Peoples Improv Theater (The PIT) in the Summer of 2010 and was featured in Time Out New York. Since then, she has been a regular on the stand-up scene playing anything from dive bars to world-famous comedy clubs like New York Comedy Club, The Stand, The Standing Room, Caroline’s, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, Broadway Comedy Club, Comix, Laugh Boston, The Stress Factory & Gotham. Her second stage show, Almost Former Reality TV Stars, had a run at The PIT in June 2011 and told the true (albeit slightly exaggerated) story of how CORINNE and her real-life best friend, actor/model THOMAS WHITFIELD, were hired, then fired from their very own reality TV show.

Known as @PhilanthropyGal on Twitter (slightly tongue-in-cheek…), in 2012 CORINNE performed in a series of benefit shows for the AFGHAN WOMEN’S WRITING PROJECT alongside other female New York comedians including SNL alum RACHEL DRATCH. Over the past few years, CORINNE has been selected to perform in the prestigious BOSTON COMEDY FESTIVAL, the WOMEN IN COMEDY FESTIVAL, THE LAUGHING DEVIL COMEDY FESTIVAL & the SHE-DEVIL FESTIVAL. On YouTube, she is the messed up mind behind Internet vlogger GINA SPRINKLES and the voice of ‘TOIBA’ on the cartoon web series MYSTERY SQUAD GALS, the brainchild of RYAN DUFF.

Perhaps most notably, however, CORINNE is 1/2 of SORRY ABOUT LAST NIGHT…, her comedy writing and performance duo with KRYSTYNA HUTCHINSON. In December 2013, the duo launched Guys We Fucked: The Anti Slut-Shaming Podcast that now boasts a million+ listeners worldwide. Having featured celebs such as AMBER ROSE, STOYA, DAN SAVAGE, JIM NORTON, ARTIE LANGE, HORATIO SANZ, ANDY DICK, LIZZ WINSTEAD (Co-Creator of “The Daily Show”) and JENNI ‘JWOWW’ FARLEY (“Jersey Shore”) in addition to real gents they’ve had their way with, the podcast is consistently ranked among the Top 5 comedy podcasts on iTunes (but has reached as high as #1) and has been featured on The Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, Splitsider, Mother Jones, Perez Hilton, Elle, A.V. Club, E! Online, People, US Magazine, and Bust as well as OPIE & JIM on Sirius Radio and NBC’s LAST CALL WITH CARSON DALY. Previously, the duo wrote and starred in a self-titled sketch show that debuted at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC in the Spring of 2013 (Dir. Jon Bershad) and co-hosted a popular underground comedy variety show of the same name that has had homes at the Brooklyn Winery, The PIT and originated at Gotham City Improv. The show was like the best college keg party you’ve ever been to and featured comedy faves such as HANNIBAL BURESS & KURT METZGER as well as cult folk-rock sensation DAN BERN.

Most recently, CORINNE and KRYSTYNA were invited to do a live recording of the #GuysWeFucked podcast at the JUST FOR LAUGHS FESTIVAL in Montreal, Canada. Their first show sold out so quickly that a second show had to be added, which also sold out. They have also sold out the main room at The World Famous Comedy Store in Hollywood where they were joined by special guests DANE COOK, NEAL BRENNAN & OWEN BENJAMIN. Additionally, they were also guest editors for GLAMOUR MAGAZINE where they penned their own take on the all-too-familiar “How To Please Your Man” article.

In 2014, CORINNE made her television stand-up debut on FOX’s LAUGHS on the special “Under 30” episode. She also co-hosts a monthly show at NEW YORK COMEDY CLUB called NACHO BITCHES with BLAIR SOCCI (MTV’s “Ladylike”) where GARY GULMAN, YANNIS PAPPAS, ARI SHAFFIR, BONNIE MCFARLANE, KEVIN MEANEY, and SNL’s PETE DAVIDSON are regular drop-ins. In the Summer of 2015, FISHER and fellow comic KATIE HANNIGAN created THE COMEDIENNE PROJECT (Dir. TED ALEXANDRO), a show challenging its participants to write and perform twenty new minutes of stand-up sans sex, dating, or relationship material, which was accepted into The NYC Fringe Festival and is now a monthly show at The Standing Room.

CORINNE holds a BFA in Film & Video from the School of Visual Arts, has been trained in the Stanislavski method by Joie Lee (“Do The Right Thing”) and is a graduate of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre’s prestigious improvisation training program. She loves ice cream and the Spice Girls.

Menuhin Hart
Menuhin Hart
Menuhin Hart, born on December 19, 1983, started his life in Bronx, NY where he was raised for the first eight years of his life. In 1992, he moved to Atlanta, GA where he discovered his aptitude and zeal for making people laugh. As his friends would call him the “class clown,” Menuhin filled even the classrooms with constant laughter with pranks and his comical wit. It didn’t take long for the school to recognize his talent and asked him to play Chris Rock for the school play, honoring the Black History Month. The crowd was filled with unexpected hilarity as Menuhin took over the show. But comedy wasn’t the only talent Menuhin came across. His creativity led him elsewhere: music production, audio engineering, DJing, computer IT, cosmetology, and pizza making! He thrived in all these careers until he hit a gaping creative void in 2009.

He was confined in his career loss and his only way of pulling himself together was by turning his life experiences into jokes for people who came to laugh and relate with him. Although he performed at grungy local bars where the only impressions were ineradicable cigarette smells and a small crowd, hearing even the quietest chuckle was enough for him to pursue his career of comedy. He spent the next two years performing at Urban Grind, The Basement Theatre, and eventually performed at better known comedy clubs: The Relapse and The Punchline. And just as life always has, Menuhin was hit with another calamity in his career and he realized he was ready for more – New York.

Menuhin moved back to his roots and within a few years he opened for Thomas Dale at Caroline’s, making it as a semi-finalist in NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity, creating personal podcasts “Netflix Campfire” and “Vintage Static” with self-made voice-overs, writing sketches, producing music for other comics such as Dante Nero’s podcast Beige Philip, beat boxing on MTV2′s Joking Off, and performing at Gotham Comedy Club, The Stand, The Standing Room, Eastville Comedy Club, and more. And he continues to be well known amongst New York comics to be the “class clown.”
