Joe Matarese grew up in Cherry Hill, New Jersey - just minutes outside of Philadelphia and just off of Exit 4 of the NJ Turnpike. At an early age, Joe was addicted to standup comedy, mainlining comedy albums into his brain for medicinal purposes. Whenever things got dicey in his life (as things do in those adolescence years), Joe would go into his bedroom and shut the door, or hide in his parents’ basement alone, and listen to all his favorites. Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, and Steve Martin were his favorites. They took him to a place in his mind where his anxieties fell to the wayside and were replaced with smiles and laughter. The job of standup comedian was a dream.

The laughter Joe got from being vulnerable and sharing his truth was like medicine. He couldn’t get enough of it and sought stage time anywhere and everywhere he could find it. Joe was a hustler in his new found journey, and he never again felt “lazy” - what his school teachers and parents had always called him. His relentless hard work made him a paid touring comedian within 2 years. Joe got his first road gig opening for one of his inspirations, comedian Bill Hicks at the Cleveland Improv for a whole week. Joe learned more about comedy in that week than any other week in his 30-year career. After 4 years of performing mostly in the Philadelphia comedy scene as his home base, he realized he’d have to move to NYC and tackle the big apple.


Abby is a Baltimore stand-up comic who has performed all over the region. In addition to hosting and performing at comedy clubs (and lots and lots of bars), she co-produces a monthly all-women comedy showcase, The Clitorati Presents...Lip Service. Abby’s relatable content is largely autobiographical - aimed at finding the funny in everyday life. Her comedic style draws from her experience as an educator and social science researcher. A moderately famous comic once described her comedy as, “feminine, vulnerable, and not taking sh*t from anyone”. A Tinder date once described her as, “someone who expects people to listen when she talks”. There was not a second date. Abby has a 4.3 on rate-my-professor and is a 5-star Lyft passenger.
