Monica Hamburg

In-Person shows will be back once we're safer

Oh hey! The wonderful Kelly Zemnickis and I are co-producing this night of comedy: 

"Fortunately, Comedy" 

Thursday, June 30th, 2022 at 8pm at Freestanding Room.

Comedians Monica Hamburg and Kelly Zemnickis present this quirky comedy show where comedians, imported and local, get a fortune cookie at the end of their set & let us know just how fortunate it makes them feel. 

Guests: Andrew Searles, Simone Holder, Peter J. Radomski - and headliner, Adam Gabel.

Her one-person show, "$50 Future" was at NYC's SoloCOM 2019, and her panel show, "Pornomedy" sold out in October 22nd, 2021 and was popular at 2019's Montreal Comiccon, Fringe After Dark & Festival De La Bete Noire. Her shows are a fun & evil time. (That also describes Monica.)

She performs stand-up all around. And has also done many storytelling shows - especially, "The Stories We Don't Tell" (2 of her stories are in their book!).  


You can watch episodes of "Confined" on Youtube.  

She also makes comedy videos. You can see most on Youtube (such as "Day to Be Deceased Potentially") and her collaboration with comedian PetInfoer J. Randomski, "More Funding Needed" is on Vimeo.
