Mel V: 2016 Clash of the Comics winner Mel V’s hilariously quirky and irreverent style is a favorite of audiences all over the Northeast. She has performed at Comix Comedy Club at Mohegan Sun, The Funny Bone, Treehouse Comedy Club, The Elbow Room and many more, and was a finalist in the 2019 Funniest Person in Massachusetts Competition.

Mo Mussa: Mo Mussa is an up and coming comedian from Connecticut who has performed at the Hartford Funny Bone and Comix @ Mohegan Sun. He does comedy all over the East Coast. His delivery depends on his mood but either way he’ll leave you doubled over with laughter. While you’re laughing you might ponder, “what’s his problem?” He doesn’t know, and don’t ask him after the show.

Dan Kalwhite: Over the last 9 years Danny Kalwhite has shared the stage with some of the funniest people in comedy (Kyle Kinane, T.J. Miller, Big Jay Oakerson, Sebastian Maniscalco, Rachel Feinstein & Mark Normand to name a few). He’d love a chance to make you laugh and hopes that you won’t be disappointed by his dirty sneakers.

Mega Harrison: Like many successful comedians, Mega Harrison started doing stand-up comedy out of revenge! “Mega” is short for “Megatron,” which would be a pretty megalomaniacal name to use. Mega tells jokes about dating, her cat, and her mother. You can catch Mega slinging jokes and weaving tales all over Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York.

Pratima Singh is a fellow at Hartford Youth Scholars, studying at UConn to be a middle school English teacher, the most self-destructive of all career choices. In her spare time, she grooms middle-aged ladies and dogs.

Dan Rice is an editor and contributor at the popular satire site The Hard Times. He has made Best Video Order Dvd’s for him twice now, because he is mommy’s special boy.

Comedy: Reel Life—A Stand-Up Comedy Show returns with new host Stosh Mikita Sat., Oct. 26, at 8 PM

Best Video Film & Cultural Center presents the return of Reel Life—A Stand-Up Comedy Show on Saturday, Oct. 26. With host creator Kendra Dawsey now relocated to Boston, Reel Life is now hosted by comic Stosh Mikita. It starts at 8 PM and the cover is $10.

Stosh Mikita is a New Haven, CT based comedian whose comedy combines clever observations, self-deprecating humor, and dark personal stories from an unusual upbringing. Starting in 2013, Stosh has quickly become a regularly featured comedian all over New England.

Harper Liles is a New Haven based standup comic who has been performing all over the Northeast and Canada. Some topics of note include her southern upbringing, chronic illness and observations about navigating this world gone mad. When she is not on stage telling jokes, she is under them playing instruments in pit orchestras for musicals. She’s not bragging, she’s just tired.

Shawn Murray is a writer, comedian, and international heartthrob from New Haven. He’s performed in all sorts of places, with all the good people. It is of his opinion that no one actually reads these bios, so he’d like to use this space to say that Field of Dreams is a nonsense movie.

Also on the bill are Paul Kilmer and NYC-based comic Keele Howard-Stone.
