Michael Che, recently named a “Comic To Watch” by Comedy Central, hosts Stand-Up Comedy Night at Luna Stage. Mr. Che is the regular host of the ongoing series and will be joined this month by fellow comics Freddy Sheffield, Phoebe Robinson, and Anton Shuford.
Luna Stage’s Stand-Up Comedy Night is a bi-monthly event featuring a full evening of stand up comedy from the tri-state area’s up and coming comics. Performers have been seen on MTV, NBC and Comedy Central and Luna Stage’s intimate theatre gives audiences the opportunity to see these rising stars up-close and personal.
Host Michael Che is a native New Yorker who has already gained the respect and admiration of many of the comedians and audiences in New York City. His comedy blends street culture with world issues to hilarious results.
Freddy Sheffield has been honing his skills for 5 years in and around the NYC area. Born to an African American father and a Japanese mother, his culturally diverse background gives him a funny, unique perspective and fresh, sometimes controversial, insights on everything from race to politics.
Cleveland-native Phoebe Robinson is steadfastly making her presence known in the New York City comedy scene, where she performed most recently in the New York Underground Comedy Festival. She regularly appears at such venues as Gotham Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, NYU, and Caroline’s, delivering comedy on everyday topics in a laid-back Midwest style that appeals to multi-cultural and multi-generational audiences.
Anton Shuford is based in Philadelphia and has been performing for six years. He’s a regular at the local Philadelphia venues, but he is also making his name as a comic on stages from Hartford to North Carolina, becoming within the span of his short career one of the busiest comics in the city.
