The Ivy League of Comedy brings you stand-up comedy’s funniest and brightest: Ophira Eisenberg, Moody McCarthy, and Shaun Eli. Known for their elite brand of clever comedy, you’ve heard their brilliant comedic voices on Comedy Central and late-night TV. Now see them live on stage!
Comedian Ophira Eisenberg has performed on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comedy Central, VH-1, The Today Show, TV Guide Channel’s Standup In Stilettos, Fox, E! Channel, CNN, Oxygen Network, and the AXS Network. She hosted NPR’s weekly trivia comedy show Ask Me Another. Ophira is a regular host and teller with The Moth, and her stories have been featured on The Moth Radio Hour and in two of The Moth’s best-selling books. Her debut memoir ‘Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy’ was optioned by Zucker Productions for a feature film.
Moody McCarthy is a stand-up comedian who has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, and the Letterman Show. He lives in New York City with his wife and two wee lasses. Moody has performed at the best clubs in the land, and you can listen to him on SiriusXM. He’s also been featured on America’s Got Talent, and Last Comic Standing but gets asked more about his “House Hunters” episode. Moody was born “Matthew” into a big Irish family where – by law, someone gets a nickname. He began doing comedy in Upstate New York in the 1900s and covered sports on Syracuse’s top radio show before moving to New York City. Moody’s material is original but universal and smart without being trite. Couple that with a disarming stage presence & in-the-moment chops, you’ll see why he’s earned the admiration of his peers for his ability to “go up cold.”
Stand-up comedian Shaun Eli has rightfully been called one of America’s smartest comics. Whether it’s a story about dining with a vegetarian or successfully fighting a parking ticket in criminal court, master storyteller Shaun Eli shows you that there’s hilarity in the ordinary if you approach life with a comedic warp. Job interviews? How about the Ten Commandments? He has hilarious stories at the ready for just about anything he’s experienced. With a sense of humor that’s cheerful and universal, Shaun has headlined shows on five continents. Shaun was the recipient of a major profile in The New York Times.
