With Dewayne White, Zygy Susser, Ellen Orchid, and Paul Venier.

Comment below with your experiences.

Today’s Panel:

Paul Venier –

Paul Venier has been called “The One Man Comedy Tornado” and after seeing one of his shows you’ll understand why. Paul’s shows consist of super high energy, guitar parodies, piano expertise, serious music, props, and rapid interplay with his audience, that is often stunned by his clever quickness. Most amazing though is the way Paul continually weaves the crowd throughout the show using his photographic memory. Born and raised in Levittown, NY he now calls Toms River, NJ, home.

DeWayne White –

Dewayne White is a DC-based standup comedian. He’s also  a combat-wounded veteran who served in the Army for 23 years. Much of his humor is drawn from his unique take on his military experience, his life as a husband and father, and the general craziness of life. He lives in Woodbridge, VA.

Zygy Susser – Facebook

Zygy Susser has a very quirky sense of humor and comes up with thoughts and ideas that are oftentimes so hilarious, he’s afraid that he might die laughing. He’s been a stand-up comedian for over 5 years in and around New York City. Zygy lives in the east village with his wife and his bird.

Ellen Orchid– Facebook

Ellen Orchid is a New York-based stand-up comic, actor, playwright, and psychiatrist. She has performed stand-up on “The View” and has had a speaking role as “Dr. Sharon Zalutsky” on “The Sopranos”. She currently resides on the upper east side of Manhattan.
