March 2-3 – Joseph Anthony


From Last Comic Standing , The View, Conan O’Brian, The Today Show

Joseph’s father was an Italian Immigrant, who entered the United States just after WWII and began his career as a Longshoreman at the age of 17. He quickly climbed up the management ladder. His mother was born in Brooklyn, NY and raised Joseph on: delicious dishes, overbearing love, inherent O.C.D. … And incidentally, had a mean right hook – for someone who stood only 4’ 11!” Surprisingly, being raised (in part) by his five older sisters who frequently opened Joseph’s mind up to such things as: how to use a hot curling hair kit, cleaning the crevices of wood furniture, and being a constant (mini) Hustle practice partner, all with the absence of any brothers and a father determined to figure out the fine art of betting, he (Joseph) was no stranger to the ways of the streets, but also enjoyed a quiet retreat to read and write at a very young age. The results you say? He can hold court with both Harvard and Sing Sing prison alumni, just the same. Yet despite his upbringing, he belongs to no one particular group, class, click, or innate stereotypes, as it were. In the world of entertainment, he’s simply referred to quite often as: VERSATILE – TALENTED – FUNNY – SMART!  Joseph studied writing style and screen writing at the New School for Social Research, in New York City.  He learned the basics of filmmaking at the College of Staten Island, NY. He studied the Meisner technique of acting under Joanna Beckson (Ray Romano’s teacher), herself a student of the famed Actors Studio.
In January of 1990, he stepped onstage at PIPS Comedy Club in Brooklyn, New York. He immediately found the avenue for all three of his artistic passions – writing, acting and stand up comedy. Today, Joseph is a frequently requested performer/headliner at the most well known comedy clubs and countless venues in the Northeast and around the country

March 30-31 – John Moses


From The Artie and Anthony Show, Sirius XM, Gotham Comedy Live
Emma Willman and Kevin Gootee

John Moses has been delightfully offending audiences throughout the United States, Canada and the U.K. for more than 15 years. This year John was a finalist at the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta and is a favorite at festivals all over including; The Boston Comedy Festival; The Asheville Comedy Festival; The Cottage Country Comedy Festival; and the Dark Comedy Festival in Toronto where he roasted Porn Legend Ron Jeremy.  John released his debut album On The Edge in 2012. It was voted one of Laughspin.com’s “10 Best Comedy Albums of 2012,” and given their dubious distinction as “The One Album From 2012 You Should Get By A Comedian You Probably Never Heard Of.” It is still in regular rotation on Sirius XM RawDog, The Foxxhole and Canada Laughs. In 2013, he became an immediate favorite on AXS.TV’s Gotham Comedy Live and was featured in their special “Best of Season One.” In 2015 he made his second appearance on Gotham Comedy Live and received high praise from the show’s host, the iconic Dom Irrera. In 2016 he made his third appearance on the show. He released his second album Upper Middle Trash in May of 2016. Raw Dog on SiriusXM named that album one of the best albums of 2016.  An equal-opportunity offender, John’s comedy transcends racial and cultural barriers—appealing to black, white, and brown audiences, the young and old, upstanding citizens and the morally bankrupt. John’s style is shrewd, raw and uncompromisingly funny.
