This week’s theme is population genetics featuring comedians Lorelei Ramirez, Ziwe Fumudoh, Brian Faas and guest scientist Dr. Brenna Henn. Purchase your tickets online early as the show has limited seating. Please remember that the lineup may be subject to change.

Lorelei Ramirez:
Lorelei Ramirez is an artist, comedian, and writer residing in New York where she is attempting to do everything she can before I dies because dying is scary and who will see through these eyes when she’s done? An ill tempered demon? She hosts a Bi-weekly show at Tandem bar in Bushwick called Do Something Variety Show, and also host a show at Over The Eight called “I’m Afraid Of Dying”.
Ziwe Fumudoh:
Ziwe Fumudoh is a comedienne based in New York City, USA, baby. Her jokes have been featured in the The Onion, Above Average, and Reductress. Additionally, her tweets have appeared in Buzzfeed, CNN, Cosmopolitan, The Fader, NPR, NYMAG, and other publications her mom hasn’t emailed to her… yet. Ziwe rhymes with Freeway.
Brian Faas:
Brian Faas has been a UCB performer since 2006. He currently improvises every Friday night with The Law Firm. You can also catch him on the UCB stage with Ass Wednesday, Hot For Teacher, or hosting the fake talk show DING DONG! Brian got his start as a cast member on Vh1’s Best Week Ever. Since then, he’s appeared on Comedy Central, Fuse, Bravo, Logo, Fusion – and in videos for Above Average, IFC, and UCB Comedy. He’s also written for MTV, truTV, and the History Channel. In 2015, Brian served as the drunk sidekick for the late-night show “Bianca Unanchored.” Brian loves making comedy with his friends, but his real passion is taking selfies.
Guest Scientist Dr. Brenna Henn:
Brenna Henn is an assistant professor in the Dept. of Ecology and Evolution at Stony Brook University. She began her PhD by studying the deep population structure and complex migration patterns of African hunter-gatherer groups. She aims to approach questions of genetic and phenotypic diversity from an interdisciplinary standpoint. Before that, Brenna led several African genomic projects aimed at understanding the origins of modern humans and dispersals Out-of-Africa at Stanford University School of Medicine.
