SHOW STARTS AT 8:00PMIn 2016, Jacqueline made her network debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden, shot The Half Hour special for Comedy Central, and released her first book HOW TO WEEP IN PUBLIC: Feeble Offerings on Depression from One Who Knows. Jacqueline was named a 2015 Comedy Central Comic to Watch and 2016 Just for Laughs New Face. In TV her credits include appearances on Animals (HBO), The Characters (Netflix), and starring in her own Refinery29 series How to Weep in Public, directed by John Early. Jacqueline just released a second book, WEDDICULOUS, a collaboration with comedian Jamie Lee. This year she's touring clubs and theaters, opening for Mike Birbiglia, Fred Armisen, and Anthony Jeselnik.Moses is a talented writer/performer/comedian who was a finalist on NBC's LAST COMIC STANDING, and just shot the new TV series YOUTH & CONSEQUENCES for YouTube Red. He made his late night debut in Sept 2017 on CONAN, where he received a standing ovation after his performance. He received glowing reviews from critics for his performance in the 2015 high-concept Universal horror film UNFRIENDED, and recently shot a role in the new Adam Sandler film for Netflix entitled WHO DO YOU THINK WOULD WIN. He has appeared in numerous TV shows such as Comedy Central’s ANOTHER PERIOD, and MTV’s ACTING OUT, and is the face of a controversial Burger King ad campaign! Moses hosts a live comedy show on the Nerdist stage at Meltdown Comics called, THIS SHOW IS YOUR SHOW! Guest performers have included John Mulaney, Thomas Middleditch, and TJ Miller. Moses is also an acclaimed storyteller, having recently won the Moth’s GrandSLAM, and he's been featured on KCRW's 'Un-fictional’. In 2015, he had the prestigious honor of being chosen as a “New Face” at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal. He is currently developing his solo show - here is a teaser of “An Evening with Moses Storm”. Here he is performing in the show Don’t Tell My Mother from Pivot TV and Rooftop Comedy (great 1 min clip). In addition to his live shows, Moses gained a large social media following his viral video detailing how he tried to throw his own birthday party at the LAX airport Chilli's (the hilarious video “Terminally Chill Birthday”). His next social experiment, entitled MODERN MILLENNIAL, began as a fully funded Kickstarter campaign, and had him living 24/7 at an interactive art installation in Downtown LA. Here is a great article about the experiment from LA Weekly. It all culminated in a wonderful 30 minute documentary about his time there, which had an unforgettable premiere in Los Angeles. Moses works with an inspiring amount of ambition to create unconventional interactive entertainment.
