8-Bit Stand Up Comedy
Jul 19, 2019
Featuring Samantha Ruddy, Aaron Maslow and Roger Haak
Samantha Ruddy tells jokes, writes funny stuff, and weasels her way into your heart with her girl-next-door charm. Samantha has performed standup on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, headlined Carolines on Broadway, and appeared in videos for Comedy Central--all before her 27th birthday! She has also performed at national comedy festivals like New York Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, and High Plains Comedy Festival.
Brooklyn Magazine called her one of Brooklyn's 50 Funniest People, BUST says she's a comic "you should be obsessed with," and Vulture recently featured her for "Follow Friday." Samantha is a skilled joke writer and her comedy is clever, disarming, and sly. Read her writing on Collegehumor, Someecards, and Reductress, check out her weekly Wednesday show at Lucky Jack's in Manhattan at 9pm, and follow her on Twitter @Samlymatters. You'll be glad you did. And she will too!
Aaron Maslow is a stand up comedian from Denver, CO. This father of three, delights audiences by stripping away the romanticism of parenthood. His jokes about family life are as lighthearted and goofy as they are subversive and quick-witted. Aaron is happy to be entertaining audiences all over but, really, he's just glad to be out of the house. Aaron was a finalist in Denver Comedy Work's 2018 New Faces Contest, has performed in numerous festivals including the Cape Fear Comedy Fest in North Carolina and the Boulder Fringe Fest in Boulder, Colorado. He hosts Your Dad's Comedy Show and Schooling Noah w/Aaron Maslow and a Special Guest, a podcast on Sexpot Comedy Radio.
Roger Haak is a successful vocalist who has toured with choirs across Europe, talented event coordinator, and avid cyclist who has ridden solo across the country, but instead of developing those traits into a stable livelihood, Roger has focused his energies on being an okay stand-up comedian. In spite of overwhelming mediocrity, Roger has been accepted to Gilda’s Laughfest, Dallas Comedy Festival, and Cleveland Comedy Festival. He also hosts a popular open mic every Sunday at Denver Bicycle Café, emcees for Colorado Chautauqua and Boulder Fringe Festival, and one time Roger opened for Doug Stanhope. And I mean legit opened. Not a “Doug Stanhope happened to show up at the show I was already booked on, so I’m using this as a credit now.” I mean Roger was purposefully placed on the same bill as Doug Stanhope one time. Roger’s most notable praise from audiences is, “Yeah, that was pretty good. I should probably go to the bathroom now.” This is the end of Roger’s bio.
