The Ivy League of Comedy Plays NJ's bergenPAC, 9/7
In need of a good laugh? The Ivy League of Comedy will provide the perfect escape. The Ivy League of Comedy is a four-comedian show from the folks that brought you the LATE NIGHT COMEDIAN SHOW. Featured comedians are Moody McCarthy, Shaun Eli, Dan Naturman and Myq Kaplan of Allendale, NJ. See the stars of tomorrow perform live at bergenPAC, Friday, September 7th at 8PM. Tickets are only $29.00 and available at Ticketmaster.com or bergenPAC.org or by calling the box office at 201 227 1030.
The Ivy League of Comedy has performed in front of audiences of all types and have been met with rave reviews: from the three most recent Tonight Show hosts (Johnny, Jay, Conan & Jay) to patients & their families at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to embassies and even the U.S. Army War College. These comics pride themselves on their creativity, originality and professionalism, not on making fun of the audience.
Shaun Eli - Stand-up comedian Shaun Eli has rightfully been called one of America's smartest comics. Whether it's a story about dining with a vegetarian or successfully fighting a parking ticket, from hybrid cars to serving on a NYC criminal jury, Master Storyteller Shaun Eli shows you that there's hilarity in the ordinary if you approach life with a comedic warp. Contractors? European vacations? The dearth of anti-Semitism in Northern Ireland? How about the Ten Commandments? For just about anything he's experienced Shaun has a hilarious story at the ready.
Dan Naturman - Dan began performing stand-up comedy several years ago in, believe it or not, law school. After graduation he decided to devote himself to stand-up full time. Comedy, he discovered, was his true passion. Besides, his grades were bad and nobody would hire him.
Dan's charming combination of self-deprecation and outright grouchiness has had audiences howling from coast to coast and has earned him spots on The Tonight Show, Late Show with David Letterman and The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson as well as his own Comedy Central Presents special.
Myq Kaplan (pronounced "Mike Kaplan") - Myq made his network television debut on "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" and has since gone on to appear on "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson" and in his own half-hour "Comedy Central Presents: Myq Kaplan" special. Most recently, he was a Top 5 finalist on the most recent season of Last Comic Standing.

Moody McCarthy - After appearances on Letterman, Last Comic Standing and Jimmy Kimmel Live, Moody McCarthy is no longer a well-kept secret. (After an appearance on the re-vamped Star Search, he still was.) With sharp, versatile material and an old-school ethic, Moody has performed all over North America and Asia and left them wanting more (as in "Bravo!", not "We were ripped!").
Moody began his career in Syracuse, NY, in the 1900s and quickly established himself as a keen monologist. Now based in New York City, he's become a regular in the town's best rooms and grown into an act that thrives in any setting, from upscale country clubs to divey pubs. Weaving sly topical jokes with crafty material and a dash of crowd-work, Moody's likeability shines in any setting. Moody McCarthy: few people hate him!
