Meet the Cast
Matteo Lane is a New York-based comedian whose stand-up special can be seen on Netflix’s The Comedy Lineup. He has performed stand up on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Comedy Central’s Adam Devine’s House Party, This Week at the Comedy Cellar, and The Comedy Jam, as well as HBO’s Crashing. Fluent in five languages and with a singing range of six octaves, Matteo lived in Italy as an oil painter and opera singer before starting his comedy career.
Poised to become the most visible working trans comedian in America” (Rolling Stone), Patti Harrison will make her feature debut in Paul Feig’s thriller STARTER in 2018 and is recurring as “Renee” in season 2 of TBS’s Search Party. Her appearance on The Tonight Show (in response to Trump’s attempted transgender military ban) started a media firestorm and she is now a recurring contributor at the show. She’s served as staff writer for Jax Media’s Reductress Hour and for Seriously.TV, and has hosted and produced segments for Billboard, Comedy Central, and Viceland. She is currently a staff writer on the upcoming AMC series DISPATCHES FROM ELSEWHERE and will next serve as a consultant on HBO’s HIGH MAINTENANCE.
Recently Patti has been profiled in The New York Times, Vulture, Splitsider, VICE i-D, A.V Club, Paste Magazine, BUST Magazine, and was named one of Vulture’s 20 Comedians to Watch for 2017.
Sabrina is a Canadian Pakistani comedian, keynote speaker and writer based in Los Angeles and has a strong following as a stand-up touring across multiple continents. Right now, Sabrina is a writer and executive story editor for ABC’s The Mayor. Sabrina was a recurring guest on Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore and developing the next iteration of her web-series How Many Questions with Comedy Central’s digital arm. She has also appeared on Last Comic Standing, Best Week Ever, and Adam Devine’s House Party. She is an incredible advocate for gay rights, racial diversity and speaks to living honestly as you can see from her inspirational TED talk. Sabrina can be seen on Transparent on Amazon and she recently finished writing on NBC’s Crowded and Powerless.
Caitlin Weierhauser is pretty fun. This Los Angeles, by way of Portland, comedian serves up coach vibes and delightfully unhinged enthusiasm. Often political, frequently personal, and entirely too tantrum-prone, Caitlin delivers arguments with equal parts glee and rage. They give the worst news about society with a dimpled grin and pointed outbursts.
Caitlin has appeared at JFL New Faces 2018, The Benefits of Gusbandry (Amazon Prime), and will be in the upcoming Disney+ movie, Timmy Failure.
Bobby Higley is wild eyed, sassy, gay ex-Mormon, middle child of 7. Fashionable, dark, and deeply irreverent, picture Mr Martha Stuart as played by a Sassy Stoner Twink, post prison. Bobby has been a participant of both the Midwest and Portland Queer Comedy Festivals, Mutiny Radio Comedy Festival, as well as the Altercations festival in Austin.
He’s opened for Sandra Valls, Susan Rice, Emmett Montgomery, Derek Sheen & BenDeLaCreme.
Bobby is a recurring personality on Cut Casting, and his youtube videos have gotten over 18 million views.
Like you, dear reader, Woody Shticks grew up a competitive handbell ringer in a Puritan cult in the New Jersey Pine Barrens.
These days, Woody Shticks is a stand-up storyteller and flesh peddler based in Seattle, Washington. Five-time Bawdy Storytelling favorite, one third of The Libertinis, and forty pounds of fun in a two pound sack, he’s been hailed as “razor-sharp” by Seattle Star, “comedy gold” by BroadwayWorld, and “too gay to book anything but children’s theatre” by his college acting teacher.
Woody unashamedly harnesses the unruly subject of sex – the good, the bad, and the ugly – to confront power and privilege while getting to the bottom of respectability politics. Uncovering our basest parts is dirty work, but a little fruit makes it all easier to swallow. Never frozen, usually sweet, and always fresh, Woody invites conversation and incites collaboration to bring warmhearted weirdos out of the shadows and into the streets.
Woody has taught master classes at Seattle FringeCon and Intiman’s Emerging Artist Program, headlined Intersections and the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival, and produced new theatre and dance in New York, Seattle, Portland, and on his childhood waterbed. Woody will bring his solo shows Schlong Song, Maniac, and Who Cares! to anyone with a bare stage and thirst for shenanigans.
