THE MENSTRUAL CYCLE

A Monthly Stand Up Comedy Showcase for Up & Coming Womxn+ Performers

What is HERsterical?

An organization to amplify female voices by building community, fostering relationships and bridging gaps via a supportive and encouraging system. With pillars of acceptance and inclusivity, HERsterical provides tangible steps to comedic careers through a shared female experience. It is a nourishing community for sharing ideas, lessons, and information all while keeping each other informed on emerging developments & cultivating growth.

Christi Chiello:

Christi Chiello is a stand up comedian based in New York City. She made her television debut on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle, opposite legend Jimmy Carr. Christi is featured on Comedy Central Stand Up Featuring and the new stand up series This Joka presented by Will Smith on the ROKU channel. She was named a “New Face of Comedy” at the International Just For Laughs Comedy Festival and has appeared on Rachel Dratch’s Late Night Snack and Comedy Knockout on TruTV, Kevin Hart’s LOL Network, Chris Gethard Presents on Manhattan Neighborhood Network and has played various roles on IFC’s Comedy Crib.

Christi wrote and stars in her acclaimed one woman show It’s Christi, B*tch! which has sold out showings at Joe’s Pub and Ars Nova. The show was featured in the New York Times and hailed a “must see comedy event” by Time Out New York. You can hear her as Baby Saffron on the PBS Kid’s show Pinkalicious and Peterrific, and as various characters in the animated series Teenage Euthanasia on Adult Swim and HBOMax.

Christi has been a successful collegiate stand up comedy teacher for 4 years and currently teaches 3 levels of stand up comedy training at the PIT. She is excited to be a co-founder of HERsterical Productions & perform regularly at clubs in New York City. @christichiello or christichiello.com for more info!

Hope D:

Hope D is a native New Yorker, but recently moved right outside of Philly (she’ll never admit she lives in New Jersey). In 1997, she appeared in a Claritin commercial but antihistamines are difficult to work with; a hard pill to swallow. After a regular childhood, she dabbled in improv and sketch comedy writing, then began pursuing stand up in 2018. In 2020, Hope performed in the Diversity Showcase at the New York Underground Comedy Festival and she thinks she crushed it! Now, she is elated to be performing in NYC & Philly and equally excited to be a co-founder of HERsterical Productions!
