By viewing his experience as the oldest American-born child of a Sri Lankan family through a silly lens, Lahiru is able to share his life in a way audiences can relate to.
*Jesse The Shrink*
What do you get when you cross a shrink & a standup comedian? This guy!

Jesse gives audiences a sneak peek into the inner-workings and often hilarious experiences of a mental health professional. Whether he’s talking about the horrors of doing online therapy during the apocalypse or just trying to figure out what to tell drunk people he does for a living, one thing’s for sure: after hearing Jesse’s stories you’ll never see therapy (or your therapist) the same again!
*Pege Miller*
Pege started her comedy career at the Honolulu Comedy Club on the island of Oahu, Hawaii & she's been making audiences from Hawaii to the midwest laugh ever since!

Kimberly is a foul-mouthed divorcee that's barreling through life one Sauvignon Blanc at a time. Born and raised as a child of a Baptist preacher, and married for 25 grueling years, she escaped that life to live out her dreams. Onstage her energy is living out loud... and no apologies!
A true up-and-comer in the Twin Cities comedy scene, Kimberly has performed in shows for YellowBrick Comedy and Freshly Squeezed Comedy, featured at The Emporium in Hudson, WI, headlined The Moose open mic in NE Minneapolis, will be co-headlining the Gambit Brewing open mic in St Paul this spring, and is ready for more!
