Stand Up Comedy with Vicky Kuperman, Brett Druck and Adam Newman
“When people hear I’m Russian, they always assume I’m either in the Mafia or good at math. Unfortunately, I’m just a hooker.” So begins another boisterous set by breakout comedian Vicky Kuperman—Moscow native, New York City rat-packer and a regular fixture on the national stand-up comedy circuit. Alternately described as “fierce,” “fearless” and “ferociously funny,” Vicky has opened for, among others, Gilbert Gottfried and Tommy Davidson; and has performed at countless festivals nationwide, including the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in New York; the Trial By Laughter Festival in Indiana; the She-Devil Festival in Long Island City; The Women In Comedy Festival in Boston; and the renowned Boston Comedy Festival (where, in 2012, she was a finalist—one of only four women to have reached that round in the festival’s 13-year history). She is also a regular contributor to The Huffington Post.
Brett Druck is a stand up comic who has studied improvisation at the Upright Citizens Brigade and Magnet Theaters in New York. He has been featured in TBS's Just for Laughs Chicago, as a finalist in The Andy Kaufman Award, in the Magners Comedy Festival in Boston, in the Jersey Shore Comedy Festival, in the Cleveland Comedy Festival, and in the New York Stand-Up 360 Festival. Brett has also been featured on Comedy Time TV and on Sirius XM radio. In 2012 he was one of 10,000 submissions chosen for the America's Got Talent Youtube Top 20. With just a hint of musical garnish, Brett takes a meritocratic approach to comedy, bringing the funniest parts of his stand up to you quickly, directly, and without filler. Come take shot of 120 proof concentrated comedy for a show you won't forget.
