First Time First Deal - Arish Singh

The comedy of Arish Singh, with its unique fusion of absurdist humor and political commentary, has been praised by many and described by many more as “totally not my thing.”

Singh has performed with Hasan Minhaj (The Daily Show), Kamau W. Bell (Totally Biased), Barry Rothbart and Chris Thayer. He is the comedy coordinator for the Witching Hour arts festival in Iowa City, and co-produces Chicago’s Solid (Hil)arity, a storytelling and comedy show that fundraises for activist groups and labor unions.

First Time First Deal - David Franklin

explicit language

David is a law professor at DePaul and former law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  He makes regular appearances on WTTW’s Chicago Tonight.  While studying at Yale, he was invited to perform with its improv group, the Purple Crayon. He once shook the late Vaclav Havel by one hand while the late Strom Thurmond shook him by the other. They were not late at the time.  Sometimes he runs into short celebrities (Jackie Mason, Julianne Moore, Jon Stewart) or very tall ones (entire professional basketball teams), but has very little experience running into medium-sized celebrities. He has been known to stare into the middle distance.
