Witch Hunt

New York Comedy Club

Witch Hunt is a monthly stand-up showcase at The Virgil in Los Angeles and New York Comedy Club in New York City. The show is hosted and produced by creator and Los Angeles comedian, Merrill Davis (Hulu, Comedy Central, Showtime), and features the best comedians in the country as both guests and guest hosts.

Merrill created Witch Hunt in response to the male dominated lineups in Los Angeles and New York, and everywhere in between, in order to support and feature the most talented established and up-and-coming female comedians who weren't getting as much stage time as their male counterparts. She then teamed up with brilliant comedy booker Luisa Díez (Schtick or Treat, The Stand, Knitting Factory) to create the best lineups on both coasts.The name Witch Hunt was inspired by the Salem Witch Trials of 1692 and the women who survived.
