Two fearless comedic polymaths appear together for an unpredictable evening of stand-up comedy in Live from the Gutter! Jamie Loftus brings her “absurdism for the modern woman” (Forbes). Sarah Sherman, AKA Sarah Squirm, continues her “never-ending mission to find and celebrate the beauty of the grotesque and weird” (Vulture).
Jamie Loftus is a writer, stand-up comic, and animator who Vulture called one of 2018’s Best New Comedians to Watch. Most recently a writer on the Adult Swim series Robot Chicken, Jamie currently hosts the HowStuffWorks feminist movie podcast The Bechdel Cast. Jamie is a regular contributor to publications such as Vice, Paste, The New Yorker, and Playboy.
Sarah Sherman is a Chicago-based comedian who has become known for her unconventional and popular show, Helltrap Nightmare. She was most recently staffed on Netflix’s Magic for Humans. She was previously named one of Vulture’s 2018 Comics to Watch and one of Time Out Magazine’s 2017 Five Comics to Watch. Sarah starred in Flayaway, a new late-night infomercial for Adult Swim which aired last December.
