    Stand-up

    The moment Vanessa hits the stage, she hits her audience with her insatiable love of what she does. She'll talk with them and joke with them by telling stories from her life and through the lens of her incredibly larger than-life, poignant hysterical characters she's met a long the way.

    Vanessa's need to perform came partly from the way she grew up. The daughter of two drug-addicted, alcoholic, hippy parents, her British Dad was the first person to bring LSD to the States and was closer to Timothy Leary than he was to her while her Mom always told her 'the three most important people in my life are me, myself, and I!" setting the stage for some serious, and now funny low self-esteem issues. 

    By the end of Vanessa's show, her audience who was once full of strangers, she is able to turn into new best friends and extended family. While Vanessa's real family was out there busy getting high, Vanessa was out there busy getting laughs. 

    Vanessa is  an accomplished actor, 

    performance artist, and writer with a TV pilot currently in the works called, 

    Take My Life, Please!

    Stand-up

    Edgy, electifying and a bit sassy, comedian Sharon Simon personifies "Jewish Trash".
    Growing up as the only Jewish child in an Hispanic neighborhood, her blonde hair and lack of pigment quickly earned her the sobriquet, "Flashlight".

    YESTERDAY
    If you watched Saturday Night Live in the 80s, and didn't blink, you MIGHT have seen a very young Sharon in a Christmas sketch. Apparently this small scene paid a lot as Sharon didn't find it necessary to appear on TV again for quite some time

    While most Jewish girls use daddy's money to attend spendy colleges, Sharon stripped to pay her way through Rutgers University's drama program. Sharon briefly dated the one straight man in her acting program but alas, he too turned out to be gay.
    Sharon later went on to become an EMT.

    TODAY
    Sharon's edgy act and unique, "Jewish Trash" style is burning up clubs and colleges all over the U.S. and Canada. You can catch Sharon on Sirius Radio and as an opening act for Jim Norton, (she once used her EMT training to save a woman that collapsed during a Norton show).
