May Comedy at the Capitol!
May 16 @ 7:30 pm
Next up in the comedy series is a show you don’t want to miss! The headliner, Maija DiGiorgio, has performed alongside many industry standouts and the feature, Derrick Knopsnyder, is a young, quickly rising comedian in Pittsburgh. Irwin Loring will be hosting the show and keeping the audience laughing along.
Headliner is Maija DiGiorgio. Maija DiGiorgio is a comedian, actor, writer, radio personality, filmmaker, musician, and an NY-to-LA transplant. In her first year doing stand- up, Maija took the comedy world by storm taping five national TV appearances, receiving a standing ovation at NBC’s Live from the Apollo, and performing at the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival. Through her work, she has had the opportunity to perform alongside many industry standouts—including Dave Chappelle, Kevin Hart, Bill Burr, Dane Cook, Wanda Sykes, Mike Epps, and Tracy Morgan. Maija has been described as “Fantastic” by Dave Chappelle and been referred to her as “A f**king star!” by Bill Burr.
The feature is Derrick Knopsnyder. Derrick started in stand-up comedy after his freshman year in college and is now one of the fastest rising comedians in Pittsburgh. He uses wit, charm and awkwardness to keep crowds laughing. Derrick was a finalist at the Cleveland Comedy Festival.
Hosting the evening is Irwin Loring. Irwin was a finalist in the 2007 comic of the Year competition for Maryland, Washington DC and Virginia. He was the winner of best new talent comic at the Reading Comedy Outlet in 2008, and a finalist in the Big Break Comedy Competition in 2009.
