YOUR PERFORMERS

Dylan Meyer 

Dylan Meyer

Dylan Meyer is a stand-up comic based out of Washington, DC. Standing at 6'5", Meyer has always had a unique perspective on life, both literally and figuratively. His intimidating size is rivaled only by his teddy bear personality. Meyer's actively aloof nature serves as the tour guide through his past and present experiences, which he happily shares with audiences all across the country. Always living in the moment and thinking on his feet, Meyer is sure to say something you didn't expect and will never forget.

 
Chelsea Shorte 

Chelsea Shorte

Originally from Richmond, Va., Chelsea discovered comedy as a way to stave off the boredom of being a beautiful twenty-something. Since first taking the stage as a stand up and improviser, she has flourished and has further applied her creative drive to storytelling, podcasting, sketch writing, acting, and drag performance. Her stand up material ranges from riffs on the low bar for allyship to dating or even pythons in the Everglades. Check her out as a co-host of the Tagg Nation podcast, taggnation.com.

Kandace Saunders 

Kandace Saunders

Kandace Saunders made her comedic debut in 2006 during a comedy competition at the DC Improv. Although, she didn’t win, she didn’t get booed, and people laughed. So for Kandace, that was enough to pursue a career in standup comedy. Kandace’s sarcasm, and quick wit, coupled with her ability to turn life into “extremely laughable situations”, has allowed her to become one of today’s fastest rising comedians.
