A unifying bond of comedians is the painful, cringeworthy start that they all had. Giulia Rozzi’s show First Set gathers comedians that are very funny and revisits those beginnings as well as contrasts it with honed, well-crafted comedy that they currently do. It’s like Mortified, but specifically for stand-up.

Baron Vaughn, Ramon Rivas, Melissa McQueen, and Jade Catta-Preta will be showcasing their comedy “then vs. now” next Monday at UCB Sunset.

Tickets are $5 and you can (and should) get them here.
