Sonya recently participated in the Desi Comedy Festival. Last year she opened for the ‘PBS Socal Presents’ film screening of the award winning documentary Meet The Patels. She was also on the ‘Comedy’s Best Kept Secret’ tour in 2016, performing in 25 shows over 23 days across 21 cities from Vegas to NY.
Produced/Hosted by Ben Asher (New York Comedy Festival; StandUp NBC; Iceland Comedy Festival headliner; Caroline’s; Catch A Rising Star; DoublePlusGood Comedy) – http://www.benasher.net
Ben Asher, a writer and comedian from New York, is known for his “brave,” confrontational material, and his skills as a “brilliant joke writer” among fellow comedians. He performs regularly at comedy venues and colleges throughout the metropolitan area, East Coast, and Europe. Audiences are always quick to share their appreciation of Ben’s style of sardonic irreverence and absurd, satiric wit in which he doesn’t just dissect language and taboos – he explodes them. “What Ben Asher says makes me laugh, even though I feel like I shouldn’t.”
In 2022 Ben recorded a half-hour special “An Intimate Evening of Provocative and Deranged Humor” at The Nest rock club, in Brooklyn, NY. Also, in 2022, Ben’s show Arthur Avenue Comedy was featured in the NY Comedy Festival as one of only two comedy shows in Bronx. In 2014, Ben traveled to Iceland to headline in the Iceland Comedy Festival. He was also the finalist in the 2014 Funniest Jewish Comedian Competition. In 2013 Ben was in the New York Comedy Festival.
Ben currently produces and hosts the weekly Arthur Avenue Comedy show in NYC’s Bronx borough, the monthly Comedy From Scratch at The Idea Kitchen, and Slide-In at Slate-Nightclub in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, and has produced and hosts a monthly comedy show in Park Slope, Brooklyn and New York’s East Village, DoublePlusGood Comedy.
From TimeOut NY: For comedy connoisseurs tired of seeing their favorite comics squeeze their sets into five minutes, Ben Asher’s showcase provides full-length sets and a chill atmosphere for diverse acts to thrive in.
Press: In addition to being a TimeOut New York ‘Critics Pick’, TimeOut NY has frequently called Ben’s show the “best cheap things to do,” of the week and one of the “most amazing things to do” of the month, and the New York Times has listed it show as an editor’s choice multiple times.
