Double Header: Stand Up NBC presents Raanan Hershberg and Ismael Loutfi
Friday, September 15

Raanan Hershberg is a neurotic, overweight Jew born and raised in Louisville, KY. His first album Self-Helpless climbed all the way to #2 on the iTunes Comedy Charts last year. His comedy has been featured on "Laughs" on FOX and Sirius XM. Besides performing stand up, he has also written four one-man shows. He is the co-founder of Character Assassinations - a popular series of Roasts that lampoon Fictional and Historical Characters every month to sold out audiences at The Bard's Town Theater in Louisville, KY and The Laugh Factory in Chicago, Ill.

Ismael Loutfi is a stand up and writer from Atlanta, now living in Los Angeles. He’s been called “gifted,” “quick-witted,” and a “neurotic toe-rag” by numerous friends’ parents. Underneath that sweetness lies a deeply acerbic sense of humor - the sort of thing you might develop growing up a Muslim in rural North Florida. In 2016, he was a finalist in the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival. A month later, he went on to be a New Face of Comedy at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. Since then, he has been a Stand Up NBC finalist and Comic to Watch at LA’s Riot Comedy Festival. He can be seen on the VICELAND series Flophouse.

Ahmed Bharoocha
Friday, October 13

Ahmed Bharoocha is a stand-up comedian, actor, and member of the sketch comedy group, Dead Kevin. Ahmed performed stand-up on TBS’ Conan, Comedy Central’s Adam Devine’s House Party, and at Montreal's Just For Laughs Comedy Festival as part of the New Faces Unrepresented showcase. His sketch comedy group, Dead Kevin, has been featured on Comedy Central Studios, Funny or Die, Huffington Post UK, BuzzFeed and shown regularly at Comedy Meltdown. Along with the other two members of Dead Kevin, Ryan O’Flanagan and Jack Robichaud, Ahmed stars in, writes, shoots and edits the group’s popular online sketches.

Lafayette Wright
Friday, November 17

Lafayette Wright is unique in that he is a comedian whose self-obsessions with art and expression fuel who he is both onstage and off. An enigmatic loner offstage, Lafayette has spent close to a decade honing his skill as a favorite on the DC Comedy scene. He now divides his stage time between DC and New York City. Recently he has performed in the illustrious 202 Comedy Festival and will appear on Kevin Hart's new Comedy Central show "Hart of the City", a showcase of different stand up comedy scenes across the nation.
