We're 10 years old, ya'll! What better way to mark the occasion than to keep our tradition alive of donating 100% of the proceeds from the show to an amazing local organization- this year it's Teachers Warehouse! Let's add to the over $45,000 we've donated since our inception and fill the seats for Teachers Warehouse!
Teachers Warehouse serves the educational and creative needs of children by obtaining donated supplies and equipment from businesses and individuals and distributing them free to teachers for use in schools operating under the authority of publicly-elected school boards in Brown, Greene, Lawrence, Monroe, and Owen counties.

Aparna Nancherla is a comedian and general silly billy. Her sense of humor is dry, existential, and absurd, with notes of uncalled-for whimsy. Think a wine you didn’t order.
You can currently watch Aparna as Grace the belabored HR rep on the Comedy Central show, Corporate (Wednesday nights, 10/9c).
She also just performed standup on Two Dope Queens on HBO and was the voice of Hollyhock on the most recent season of Bojack Horseman. Other acting credits include Crashing, Master of None, Love, and Inside Amy Schumer. Aparna was also named one of “The 50 Funniest People Right Now” by Rolling Stone. She also co-hosted the 2018 Women’s March Rally in NYC.
You can next catch Aparna in her own Netflix half-hour special, out March 20th, 2018, and also in the upcoming Paul Feig mystery thriller, A Simple Favor.
In 2016, she released her debut album, Just Putting It Out There, on Tig Notaro’s label, Bentzen Ball Records, and recorded a half hour special for Comedy Central.
On Monday nights, she co-hosts the new show Butterboy at Littlefield in Park Slope at 8 p.m. with Jo Firestone and Maeve Higgins.
Watch the absurdist web series Womanhood Aparna made with genius treasure Jo Firestone for Refinery29.
