Phil Hanley

with Dauood Naimyar and Natasha Vinik

Originally from Oshawa in Ont, Canada, Phil Hanley started performing stand-up in Vancouver. He’s a stand-up, actor, and writer who is a staple of the NYC comedy scene and a regular at the Comedy cellar. A favorite on the late night TV circuit, he has appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and Comedy Central’s John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show.

Phil self-released his recent stand-up special Ooh La La on his YouTube channel. Phil is also currently writing a memoir in which he recounts his lifelong struggle with dyslexia and how comedy became his saving grace. The book will be released by Henry Holt – Macmillan next year. Phil was featured in the hit feature film I Feel Pretty and the Comedy Central sketch series Inside Amy Schumer, both alongside fellow comic Amy Schumer, as well as in the film Sundowners alongside Tim Heidecker. His half-hour stand-up special can be seen on Comedy Central and iTunes, and his cult favorite comedy album Please Don’t Chit Chat While I’m Pursuing My Dream was released in 2018.

Dauood Naimyar

Born with a foreign name in an American country (America), Dauood Muhammad Naimyar learned the value of assimilating at a very young age. Because of this, he tried his best to not be different but failed at every encounter. Once he embraced his eccentric point of view, he saw the humor all around him. Dauood’s comedic perspective is shaped by the duality of his constant need to fit in, and his relentless desire to be different. His search for being relatable yet controversial has brought audiences joy for nine years--and will probably continue until he finally figures out who he is. We hope he doesn’t, 'cause bills need to be paid.

Natasha Vinik

Natasha Vinik is a bay area comedian - she’s the first to do stand-up in virtual reality, and with a mother from Peru and a Jewish, South African father - her unique perspective and experience makes her comedy fun, frightening, and falafel. Minus the falafel. She's allergic.

Natasha was featured in SF Sketchfest and Treefort Festival and you can find her performing all over the bay area with jokes that seamlessly skate between goofy, dark, and irreverent. Natasha has also performed improv for 12+ years, learning from teachers from BATS, Leela, Endgames, and UCB. She now teaches improv classes and corporate workshops.
