Chris Sebilia - 1648


Chris Sebilia's stand up is a mix of relatable narratives and personal insecurities, through which he manages to find the silver lining. Sometimes absurd but always overly analytical, come watch as this former engineer attempts non-awkward social interaction, and fails. Chris has been described as "parallel parks with average ability" and "steals the covers sometimes." Once he even bought a sandwich for a guy that wasn't actually homeless.

Chris Sebilia has been performing as an improviser and stand up comedian since 2011. He was the winner of the Winter Miracles Talent Show, featured in the TNM 4th Anniversary Clubhouse Stand Up Showcase, and is regularly found directing Maestro, Austin's longest running improv show. His biggest fans will always be his parents and girlfriend.

Anna Suzuki was born and raised in Japan (by a Jewish dad and a Japanese mom, which makes her a Jap Jap). Currently based in NYC, Anna performs comedy all over the city. She is currently co-producer/co-host of the variety show, Soul Glo Project (UCB East Theater) and Okie Dokie Super Fun Time Now! (Pete's Candy Store, Brooklyn).
