About the Event

Featuring the hilarious and talented Jon Koppel, LaTice, Emily Epstein White, and Jake Mattera, all of whom are parents themselves! (Click 'Read More' below to see each of their bios).
Jon Koppel has been called “The Seinfeld of Montgomery County, PA”. That only happened once, but it still counts. He has opened for Ben Bailey, Don Jamieson, and Joe Matarese. He has performed in venues up and down the East Coast, including shows at the Comedy Binge Festival in Atlanta, Charm City Comedy Festival in Baltimore, and at Gotham Comedy Club in New York. He prides himself on being a decent guy and an adequate husband and father.
LaTice was born and raised in the white suburbs of South Jersey and has turned that into comedy. Her conversational style makes you feel like you’re in her living room laughing about interracial marriage, being a parent, and her day-to-day encounters. She's performed in Las Vegas to compete in the World Series of Comedy twice as one of the top 101 comedians in the country. She was accepted into the Black Comedy Festival in Portland, Oregon; the She-Devil Festival in NYC; the Oak City Comedy Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina; the DC Comedy Festival; Women In Comedy Festival; Black Girl Giggles Comedy Festival; she was a featured comedian for the Memphis Urban Laughs Comedy Festival and will be going to the Comics Rock Convention as a featured comedian in L.A. LaTice has been seen on Funny or Die, appeared on ABC's The View for their "Hilarious Housewives," the Dr. Oz show and the Betheny Show, Comedy Time TV, and Laffin' Matterz TV show in NYC.
Emily Epstein White
New York to Oakland to Philly comedian and storyteller Emily Epstein White has been trapped in a self-cleaning toilet, has stitches from a treadmill accident, and once hung off the front of a truck like a hood ornament to avoid being run over. She performs all around Philadelphia, New York City, the Northeast, San Francisco and the Bay area, and the West Coast, (not to mention a boat in the middle of the Yangtze River in China). She has been featured on FreeSpeech TV and in many festivals and publications such as the 360 Comedy Festival, the She-Devil Comedy Festival, The Bechdel Test Fest, a semi-finalist twice at Helium Comedy Club's Philly Phunniest competition, the Boston Globe, and has won the San Francisco MothSlam.
Jake Mattera is a 3x finalist at Helium Comedy’s Philly’s Phunniest competition and, in 2019, placed 3rd out of over 300 comedians. He was most recently a finalist at the 2019 Boston Comedy Festival. Jake has acted in sketches that have appeared on CONAN and he is featured regularly as a guest on Philadelphia’s top radio shows. He has been invited to perform at many prestigious festivals all over the country, including: Big Sky Comedy Festival, Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, Limestone Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, HBO’s Women In Comedy Festival, and more.
