Stand-outs from New York Comedy Club
The New York Comedy Club , put together a Kick ass line-up of comedians for us to see! It was a tough decision but these two acts really made us laugh! We are real looking forward to seeing them this September.
So don’t miss Ashley Gavin and Usama Siddiquee this September in Boston!
Ashley Gavin is a New York based, nationally touring comedian. Her comedy has been featured on FOX, AXS TV, SeeSo, and SiriusXM Comedy. Ashley has headlined at colleges and clubs around the country, including her recent breakout (sold-out) performance at Carolines. Ashley has taken part in some of the most prestigious festivals and showcases including NBC’s Stand Up For Diversity, Comedy Central Comics To Watch, and New York’s Funniest.
Ashley is best known for her hard-hitting, intelligent, and sometimes absurd social commentary, particularly about her experiences as a gay woman and feminist.
Usama Siddiquee is a Bengali-American stand-up comedian and actor based in New York. He’s the kind of comic you want to follow right now, so you can totally gloat to your friends about how you were totally into him before he got huge. And then they’ll get really jealous of your impeccable foresight and superior taste.
His act is an energetic (bordering on frenetic) and intelligent (bordering on genius) romp through his own life experiences. Family! Friends! Sex! Religion! Sex with religious friends! It’s all there, and Usama slings jokes on these topics and more with rapid-fire charisma and hilarity.
And if you thought that last paragraph was self-serving, here is a shameless list of Usama’s achievements. He was most recently the 1st place winner of the 2016 Laughing Devil Cup Comedy Festival in New York; the 1st place winner of the 2015 Yonkers Comedy Festival as well as the 1st place winner of the 2015 Make Me Laugh Albany Comedy Festival. He was also featured this year on both FusionTV and Huffington Post.
