Meet our Performers
Paris Sashay is comedienne, actor, and producer from Washington, DC. Her command as a seasoned storyteller makes even the mundane experience feel like an adventure. Audiences across the country fall in love with her infectious laugh, wit, and style. Paris has performed across the country at top clubs. After being attacked and harassed on the street, Paris launched the #TeethAndTittiesCampaign raising awareness about violence against women. She has featured for Dick Gregory, Domonique, Sampson McCormick, and Michael Che. Additionally, Paris frequently serves as a motivational speaker, having the honor of being the 2013 Commencement Speaker at The Foundation School in Gaithersburg, MD.

She's been featured on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham", the BBC's "The World Stands Up", been a regular commentator on Tru TV's "World's Dumbest" for 4 seasons and hosted at least 6 episodes of Byron Allen's "Comedy.TV" and "Comics Unleashed". She's been in countless commercials and can be heard weekdays on 98 Rock's "Kirk and Marianne" show 3-7PM! Listen here: www.98online.com or find her at mariannesierk.com. She's thrilled to add "mom jokes" to her act since having a baby last year!!
Lafayette Wright is unique in that he is a comedian whose self-obsessions with art and expression fuel who he is both onstage and off. An enigmatic loner offstage, Lafayette has spent close to a decade honing his skill as a favorite on the DC Comedy scene. He now divides his stage time between DC and New York City. Recently he has performed in the illustrious 202 Comedy Festival and will appear on Kevin Hart's new Comedy Central show "Hart of the City", a showcase of different stand up comedy scenes across the nation.
