For over 15 years, John Moses has delightfully offended audiences in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. Moses considers himself an “equal-opportunity offender”. His style is shrewd, raw and uncompromisingly funny. Moses appears on Sirius XM Raw Dog, The Foxxhole Canada Laughs, Gotham Comedy Live by AXS.TV and has released two albums: Upper Middle Trash and On the Edge. Moses appears on Sirius XM Raw Dog, The Foxxhole Canada Laughs, AXS.TV’s Gotham Comedy Live and has released two albums: Upper Middle Trash and On the Edge.

Comedian Kyle Ocasio has been touring the country for over ten years. She brought laughter to U.S. troops across eight different countries, while playing with Armed Forces Entertainment. Ocasio was featured on AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live and regularly appeared on several TV shows including the popular Fox News satirical political comedy show Red Eye. She was the face of Optimum TV’s Soccer Mom Goals, a show with a comedic twist on “momentating” on the 2018 World Cup.  Rooftop Comedy released her debut album “Tell Mommy Your Name Again” and a collaborative album entitled “Three’s Comedy” with two other comedians. It was number two comedy album of the summer, just behind Jim Gaffigan. Both are in regular rotation on Sirius XM.

Host Adam Oliensis is attuned to the absurdities that arise in daily life, exploring both the irony and silliness that exist in the most humiliating situations. He appeared on the Comedy Central Daily Show with Trevor Noah. His album, Aged Whine, can be heard on Sirius XM Radio 99, Raw Dog Comedy. He is headlining the Aged Whine Comedy Tour throughout the Northeast. Adam opened for comic legends, and luminaries like Robert Klein, Colin Quinn, Gilbert Gottfried and Larry Miller. Adam co-authored and starred in the movie, The Pompatus of Love, with Actor Jon Cryer.

Comedy continues on Friday, July 23 at 8:00pm when comedian Joe Matarese presents his humorous tour – “Remember When” a nostalgic comedy of the 80s and 90s with only one man. Come see the show that is taking off on Tik Tok. Joe will take you back to a time before computers and cell phones existed and going clubbing seven nights a week seemed important!  Widely known for his performance on ‘Americas Got Talent’, Matarese won the public long before that, working in the metropolitan area stand-up circuit since he was 19 years old and has since made appearances on the most sought-after TV and radio shows.
