Elena Torres

Elena is a Spanish American telenovela actress turned stand up comedian. No, that is not a joke. After several hit telenovelas in Mexico under her belt, she fell in love with a nice Jewish East Coast guy and realized her heart wasn’t in on-camera face slapping anymore.

So she took the next logical artistic step from doing melodrama in Spanish; she started performing stand up comedy in English. She threw out her telenovela push up bra, moved to the East Coast and has performed in venues all over the country like: DC Improv, Arlington Drafthouse, Carolines, Big Hunt, Broadway Comedy Club and many more. She also hosts the Arlington Drafthouse podcast 'CounterCurrents" and has a sketch page called Human Factor Comedy. (Ok ok, she didn’t throw out her push up bra – those things are expensive..…and they work wonders - but you get the idea. )

Petey Steele

Petey Steele is a 9-year veteran of the comedy game, based out of Washington, D.C., whose blue take on relationships, mental illness, politics, and daily life have made him a crowd favorite in a short-time all over the country. He has opened for a wide range of comics including Theo Von, Ali Siddiq, Bobby Lee, Rachel Feinstein, Rich Vos, and others from venues all over including The MGM at National Harbor. He currently co-hosts the Counter Currents podcast, the weekly club pod for his home club the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse. You will leave entertained and smarter in a stupid way
