On the heels of launching his new Comedy Central show, Problematic, Oakland-raised funnyman Moshe Kasher shouts out some of his fellow “working-class” costars at the upcoming Colossal Clusterfest (June 2–4).

Joe DeRosa
“Joe’s a classic stand-up’s stand-up. He’s just a comedian, and I don’t mean that in a bad way. I tell long stories and do lots of crowd work. He just has really good jokes.”

Jo Firestone
“Jo’s a newer comic who I didn’t know as well. I [saw her] in New York: very unique and very funny, quirky comic. I definitely was hanging on every word.”

Nate Bargatze
“Nate always works clean, but that’s the least interesting thing about him…. Every joke you hear him do, you go, ‘Dammit, I wish I’d written that.’”
