Megan Koester

Megan Koester is a writer and comedian (obviously) who resides in Los Angeles (somewhat less obviously). LA Weekly (before it was taken over by right wingers, mind you) listed her as a "comic to watch," saying her "sets are as dark, self-effacing and in- the-moment as they come." Her short "Unmarketable" was an official selection at the 2016 New York Television Festival. A columnist for VICE, she's performed at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen, and on VICELAND'S Flophouse. She recently appeared on Comedy Central's "Corporate".  Koester:   Stand-Up    Koester:   Acting reel

Nick Flanagan

Nick Flanagan  is A fixture in front of brick walls (and behind chicken wire) across North America, Nick Flanagan is a singular talent in the post-NAFTA underground comedy scene. Nick's endearing conversational deadpan, choice subject matter, and "sort-of pregnant" pauses have won him battalions of die-hard followers.  He has performed at SF SKETCHFEST, FUN FUN FUN FEST, BRIDGETOWN COMEDY FESTIVAL, Andy Kindler’s Alternative Show at JFL42 and JFL. He has recently relocated to the comedic nucleus of Los Angeles where he hosts Night Comedy at the revered Night Gallery.  His first album “I’m Here All Weak” was released on Talent Moat and his second album “Wiped Privilege” just came out on COMEDY DYNAMICS and a limited run cassette release on Radical Documents. The Laugh Button said "Nick Flanagan's Wiped Privilege is what stand-up needs".  In-between good old fashioned stand-up comedy sets Nick will sing in punk bands, write on such shows as Emmy Award winning Odd Squad (PBS) and Cupcake & Dinosaur (NETFLIX) star in feature films like indie darling Diamond Tongues and make multiple radio appearances on WFMU’s The Best Show with Tom Scharpling and the Goddamn Dave Hill Show.  And check out this nice thing that was said about him: "In the future, when being hilarious is illegal, Nick Flanagan will surely (and deservedly) be sentenced to the electric chair." - Jason Woliner (Eagleheart, Human Giant, Last Man On Earth) Wow!
