Comedy Central’s Dulcé Sloan (@dulcesloan) is one of the sharpest, fastest-rising voices in comedy, and she's grabbing the mic for three nights of stand-up at The Second City’s UP Comedy Club January 3-5!
A correspondent on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah since 2017, Sloan is no stranger to the comedy scene. Bust calls her “comedy gold” while Indiewire describes her as “a fresh and unique voice in the world of stand-up comedy.” She was included in Variety's prestigious "Top 10 Comedians To Watch" list, and Timeout LA and The Steve Harvey Show both also named her a Comedian To Watch. Rolling Stone recently hailed her as one of the "10 Comedians You Need To Know," declaring “she speaks and they simply fall in line behind her.” Sloan was also honored as the 2016 NBC Stand Up Showcase Winner and as a New Face at The Montreal Just For Laughs Festival.
The performances will be hosted by three-time Second City NBCUniversal Break Out Comedy Festival performer Alex Kumin and will feature another Comedy Central face, Dave Helem.
