STEPHANIE HASZ: http://stephaniehasz.com/
Born and raised in an Irish neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, Matty has been touring and performing throughout the country for years. His conversational delivery and deft takes on his burgeoning yet unwanted adulthood have made him a favorite at showcases and clubs throughout the U.S. An alumnus of the Second City, Matty has appeared at Zanies, The Laugh Factory, The Hollywood Comedy Store, The Improv, UP Comedy Club, iO Theater, UCB LA, UCB East, The Knitting Factory Brooklyn, and in 2013 he was invited to perform at the TBS Just for Laughs Festival in Chicago. He currently co-produces The Blackout Diaries every Saturday at The High Hat Club, and Parlour Car every Thursday at Bar DeVille; both in Chicago.
Rising from small-town Wisconsin, Stephanie Hasz attacks the stage with the same vigor with which she attacks herself. Her raw honesty about being a single young woman with a propensity for short hair-cuts and tough-guy jackets has made her one of the loudest, most unique voices in the Chicago comedy scene. Stephanie’s fearlessness and specificity as she unravels her own life into a microphone resonates with audiences of all kinds, and has made her one of the most-discussed comedians in Chicago.
Stephanie has performed at clubs including Zanies and the Laugh Factory, as well as alternative rooms and venues such as the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, the Hideout, Chicago Underground Comedy, and The Creek and The Cave. The AV Club called her one of “the city’s most exciting up-and-comers,” and Time Out Chicago described her as displaying “a fury and vulnerability rarely seen from female comics.” She has also been featured yelling about things in the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago RedEye.
