Alignon Mitra, Adam Strauss, Meghan Hanley, Vincent James & more
Making his television debut on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Alingon Mitra finished first in the public vote 5 weeks in a row to win the comic comeback contest and perform on the finale. He has since performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Conan, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and Adam Devine’s House Party on Comedy Central. In addition, he wrote for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Adam Ruins Everything. He also won both the Boston Comedy Festival and the “Funniest Comic in New England” contest in the same year.
The New York Times said Adam Strauss “mines a great deal of laughter from disabling pain” and the Chicago Tribune called him “arrestingly honest and howlingly funny.” Adam won the New York Fringe Festival’s Overall Excellence Award, the Eddy Award for best solo show in San Francisco, and the Leffe Beer Craft Your Character storytelling competition. He’s lost too many things to mention here.
