Monroe’s creative and charismatic comedic voice has created a buzz within the New York comedy circuit. His intelligent and hysterical perspective resonates and has earned him respect among his peers. Monroe is on his way to becoming the type of comedian he admires—one who says exactly what he wants, the way he wants to say it.

Justin Silver: Up and coming stand- up comedian, Justin Silver is quick witted, sarcastic and cocky but charming enough to make you love him for it.

His conversational delivery makes you forget that you’re at a show rather than hangin’ out with a hilarious buddy. It’s no wonder why this young talent has quickly become a favorite amongst the up and coming comics on the New York stand up circuit. Justin is also the founder of Funny For Fido “comics stand-up for homeless animals” A non- profit organization that uses the guift of laughter to save abused and neglected animals.
