David Drake is a comedian. He is a very funny comedian. He has been featured on Sirius XM Raw Dog Comedy and Laughs on ‘Fox’ in addition to Comcast’s televised stand up series ‘Who’s Laughing Now?’ and ‘Trial by Laughter.’ He was named one of Complex Magazine’s ‘Comics to Watch Under 30’, he is a producer of Comedians You Should Know NYC, and a cast member at ComedySportz Chicago. His two comedy albums ‘Dave’ and ‘Sorry Mom’ both debuted at number one on the iTunes comedy charts. In addition to stand up, he has been featured on the popular storytelling podcast, RISK!, can be frequently seen at the Moth, and produces the outdoor storytelling series Campfire. David currently performs nationwide while working out a niche in New York’s legendary comedy scene and sometimes he’ll eat fries off your plate. He feels bad about that. He’s sorry… I’m sorry. I’m David Drake. This was me the whole time.

Saurin Choksi does comedy and makes good things in New York City. He’s currently a writer on the Facebook / Refinery 29 talk show, “After After Party.” A few years back he won The Boston Comedy Festival. He hosted a tv show on Fuse called White Guy Talk Show where he talked about pop culture and wore suits he couldn’t afford. He’s done a bunch of comedy festivals–Limestone, Bridgetown, and SF Sketch are among his favorites. His stand up has been featured on FoxTV and Sirius/XM radio. He made internet videos for Seriously.tv and internet trolls seriously trolled him. He is a proud alumni of Chicago’s Lincoln Lodge.

Choksi’s joys are the two live stand up showcases he runs: Comedians You Should Know NYC and Brown Privilege Comedy. Everyone will tell you they are dope.

Chox likes to relax by cutting and gluing together shapes out of felt. He loves his girlfriend, his family, and 4 of his friends. He thinks you should be nice to yourself and is impressed by your power.

COMEDIANS YOU SHOULD KNOW is a stand-up comedy collective for some of the funniest up-and-coming stand-up comedians in the country. Started in 2008 in Chicago, CYSK is thrilled to bring the same scrappy, comedic vision and DIY-attitude to New York City, home of the best stand-up comedians in the world. In a dynamic comedy scene with so many different styles of comedy shows, CYSK believe the only gimmick required is presenting the very funniest standup comics available; the only theme to the show is that all of the performers are comedians you really should know.

CYSK NYC is produced by Chicago-bred/New York-based comedians Saurin Choksi, David Drake, Mike Lebovitz, and Jeff Steinbrunner.
