Spotlight

Fahim left the chaotic world of aerospace engineering for the much safer comedy business -- and the move is paying off big time. The Seattle native (with Afghan roots) is getting noticed for his acting and sketch comedy work, such as the critically acclaimed "Goatface" special with Hasan Minhaj on Comedy Central. And his stand-up has been turning heads too, with appearances on "Conan," "Late Night" and lots more. Check out his DC Improv debut this winter.

Benjy Himmelfarb is a New York-based comedian who has performed at the Kennedy Center, comedy clubs across the country & many dive bars that smell like old cheese. The Washington Post has called him "sardonic, Semitic", which is a frighteningly concise way of summing him up. Beyond standup, he can be found misusing his college degree to zing historical figures at the Time Machine Roast or cracking jokes about bug mating habits & space nerds on his Instagram account.
