Erica Switzer- Erica Switzer is a Chicago comedian formerly based in Shanghai, China. With her unique energy and raw, biting wit, she recently won the Flappers Comedy Club Soup-or-Bowl and was a featured performer at the 2020 NY Underground Comedy Festival. She has featured for veteran comedians Simeon Goodson, Mateen Stewart, and Justin Rivera and accomplished her first 30-minute headliner in April 2020. Along with founding Hei Now Comedy, China's premier Black comedy crew, Erica made history as the first Black comedian to perform in Mongolia at the inaugural Silk Road International Comedy Festival in July 2019. She is the host of Rampantly's The Big D.
Kaylah Pantaleón- Kaylah Pantaleón is an Afro-Latina born and raised in Yonkers, New York and studied Performing Arts at Emerson College in Boston. She fell in love with writing at an early age, constantly filling one diary after another with stories both truthful and imaginative. After watching her first live play, West Side Story, Kaylah caught the acting bug at 11 years old and would grow up finding ways to combine her love of words and live performance. She soon discovered a passion for spoken word and would use the art as one of her favorite forms of expression. In 2006, Oprah Winfrey held a nationwide high school essay contest which accepted over 50,000 entries and gave only 50 winners the opportunity to appear on the Oprah Winfrey Show, along with a $10,000 scholarship to the school of their choice; Kaylah was one of those final 50, representing southwest Yonkers, New York. She has since published a book about her Oprah experience and has gone on to appear in several films and commercials after moving from New York to LA in 2015.
