Shaped by her experiences as a child model for no less than 3 Target advertisements, Evelyn Jensen has never let humility stand in her way of the spotlight. Evelyn has been performing comedy in Seattle for the past four years, primarily harvesting laughs through stand-up. She also has produced several shows, acted in long-form sketch (Alyssa Explains It All, Water Talk), and co-wrote, directed, and starred in the two-woman play Blood Actually: A Mormon Murder Love Story. Evelyn has competed in the Seattle International Comedy Competition and performed at Bumbershoot Arts & Music Festival. When asked to describe herself, most people regret inquiring, as she speaks exhaustively at unreasonable volumes. You can follow Evelyn on Instagram, and Twitter.

Riley McCarthy is a kind, sober, queer punk from Wisconsin. Now living in Portland Oregon, Riley was a finalist in 2018s Portland’s Funniest Person competition and was named one of Portland Mercury’s Undisputed Geniuses of Comedy. His comedy is welcoming, odd and at times very loud. Riley loves you and he wants you to know that. You can follow Riley on Instagram.
