Start your week off laughing at New York Comedy Club with the comedians of Funny Ha Ha. You’ve seen them on television and cable, late-night talk shows and Comedy Central—now see them live on stage.
Esther Ku officially began her stand-up career in Boston where she shared the stage with Doug Stanhope, Steven Wright, Jonathan Katz and Teddy Bergeron. For a hot second the team “Ku and the Jew” ruled the club—until they were fired by the bartender. She now resides in Brooklyn and travels the country entertaining audiences with her all-American bratty charm and infamous maniacal laugh. Preconceived notions of Asians and women, and Asian women, specifically, are dispelled within seconds of her gracing the stage. Her delightful demeanor and deadpan observational humor incite hysteria wherever she goes.
In 2008, Ku was selected as the only female comedian from New York City to advance to the Las Vegas Semi-Finals in NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” In Vegas, she advanced to the house portion of the reality show to become a “Last Comic Standing” Season 6 Finalist, where she annoyed the hell out of everybody with her laugh. She has been a featured regular in the Boston International Comedy Festival and the New York Underground Comedy Festival. She has performed in the hit comedy Shear Madness, the longest-running non-musical play in American theatre history.
Mary Dimino has appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and HBO’s “Chris Rock Show.”
Dante Nero television appearances include Comedy Central’s “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” and “Dave Chappelle’s Show.”
