Dina Hashem:

Dina Hashem first tried stand-up by auditioning for the 2010 New Jersey Comedy Festival at Rutgers University. After winning 1st place, she continued to pursue comedy and has since been performing regularly at clubs including New York Comedy Club, Caroline's, Comic Strip Live, Broadway Comedy Club, and The Stress Factory.
Dina's style involves a subdued delivery with dark observations about her life and cultural upbringing. She has performed at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Festival, Limestone Comedy Festival, and Burbank Comedy Festival, and has been on popular NYC shows including UCB's Whiplash and Wyatt Cenac's Night Train. Her writing has also been featured on Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, and TV Land websites.

Elicia Sanchez:

A Seattle-based comedian, writer and comic book reader, Elicia Sanchez has been performing all over the West Coast since 2010. Her conversationally cynical, yet upbeat comedic style weaves together a unique mix of embarrassing personal stories, nerdy obsessions, social politics and possible overshares, making light of her own instances of social incompetence while also skewering oppressive social norms. She has been called "fearless" by City Arts Magazine, "a grumpy nugget of delight," by writer/activist Lindy West, "a local favorite," by Seattle alt weekly The Stranger and "a brilliant new voice everyone should know," by comedian Hari Kondabolu. Grammy Award winning singer/song-writer Kimya Dawson (The Moldy Peaches, Juno) has cited Sanchez as her 'favorite underground Northwest comedian' while W. Kamau Bell, comedian and creator/star of the critically acclaimed FXX series Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, once said, "Elicia Sanchez is the truth."

Danielle K.L. Gregoire:

Danielle K.L. Gregoire is a Canadian transplant to Seattle. She is a comedian, storyteller and an arts enthusiast. In April, 2013 she created the Comedy Womb, a female focused but not exclusive comedy open mic and showcase that emphasized the importance of gender equality and jokes and ran every Tuesday night for over two years. She is now the producer of the Seattle Moth storySLAM and co-hst of Karajokey. She is also a stay at home parent, spoken word poet, ex-college radio deejay, nature lover, quasi-musician, gardner, and sometime potter. She has a not-so-secret crush on the city of Seattle, and likes to accept all the adventures it throws her way.
