About Jessica Kirson:

Jessica Kirson is a powerhouse on stage. She’s a hilariously relatable performer of sheer silliness, vulnerability, and ridiculous characters. Her countless comedic character videos have racked up over 30 million views on social media. Her audience is multigenerational, creating an excuse for large groups of friends and families to spend a night out together. In an era where only 10% of all touring comedians are female, Jessica stands out as one of the strongest comedians regardless of gender. As her friend Dave Attell says, “I’d hate to follow her.”

Jessica produced the upcoming FX’s Hysterical, a feature-length documentary premiering at SXSW 2021 that explores the changing landscape of women in stand-up comedy. The documentary features Margaret Cho, Nikki Glazer, Chelsea Handler, Fortune Feimster, and other notable comedians. Her one-hour special Talking to Myself was executive produced by Bill Burr and debuted on Comedy Central. She is a regular on This Week at the Comedy Cellar, and has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The View, and Kevin Can Wait. Last year, Jessica was featured playing herself on the HBO series Crashing. She also recently acted in and served as a consultant, producer, and writer on the Robert De Niro film The Comedian.

Jessica’s characters are coming to life in her new podcast, Disgusting Hawk presented by GaS Digital. Through her Relatively Sane podcast, Jessica has interviewed the likes of Bill Burr, Jim Gaffigan, and Rosie O’Donnell.

She was recently awarded “Best Female Comic” by the MAC association in New York City and received the prestigious Nightlife Award for “Best Stand-up Comedian.” In her spare time, Jessica is a regular contributor to The Howard Stern Show, where she produces and stars in prank calls for the program.

About Ken Krantz:

Ken Krantz has been funny his whole life. He had to be to get any attention growing up the youngest of eight kids in a real-life Brady Bunch situation. He started doing stand up in 2009 and quickly became a fixture on the Tri-State comedy scene, where he gained a reputation as a no holds barred joke writer. His laid back style combines self-deprecating humor, his views on fatherhood, and his take on pop culture and current events. Ken has performed at all of the major clubs in the Tri-State area, including Gotham, The Stand, Stress Factory, and The Comedy Cellar. He can be seen every month on his own show, Underground Comedy, at Gotham comedy club and has been featured on Rawdog Comedy on Sirius XM Radio. He released his debut stand up album, No Punchline Required, in 2016, and is the co-host of the podcast Why Bother? With Ritu and Ken. He has been seen on The Anthony Cumia Show, and jokes he’s written have appeared on Comedy Central and NBC. He has also performed for the New York Comedy Festival.

About Ritu Chandra:

Ritu Chandra is a stand-up comedian. The daughter of Indian immigrants, she left home at 18 and has lived all over the United States since then. Never feeling like she fit in anywhere, she quickly realized humor was a way to get along with others.

​​Ritu currently lives in New Jersey with her husband, son and dog. She loves all three of them but never at the same time... someone is always in first place, usually the dog. Her comedy is based on her life experiences, which continue to grow stranger by the day. Ritu will remind you of that one friend who says what you are thinking but you know better than to say out loud. Ritu brings her sarcastic observations and relatable humor to such topics as motherhood, marriage, aging, suburban life and much more.

Ritu has been seen on NBC's The Today Show and heard on Compound Media's Burning Bridges and the Mornin'!!! show. She performs regularly at Stand Up NY (New York City), Gotham Comedy Club (New YorkCity) and Stress Factory (New Brunswick, NJ). She has also performed in at the The Laugh Factory (Chicago, IL), The Set Up (San Francisco, CA) and Bonkerz Comedy Club (Maryland). You can also hear her on the new hit podcast Why Bother? with Ritu and Ken.
