Joined by some of her favorite comedians, Charla Lauriston returns to Brooklyn to work out a new hour of standup comedy. Charla started her comedy career in New York but is currently a Los Angeles based stand-up comedian and television writer who’s been described as “Self-assured and gleefully sarcastic” (WNYC) and “One of the most exciting and original voices in comedy” (Splitsider). Hailing from New York by way of Boston by way of Haiti, Charla’s sharp observations on everything from family to race to pop culture and the absurd minutia of everyday life are delivered with a matter-of-fact punch to the gut. Charla has written for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Comedy Central’s Why? W/ Hannibal Buress, TBS’ People of Earth, and FOX’s Ghosted. She's appeared on The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail and has performed at festivals around the country. Glamour Magazine listed her webseries 'Clench and Release' as a Web Series to Watch and the series has since been featured in Indie Wire, Paste Magazine, Bustle, Splitsider, and WNYC.
