CAKE what?

CAKE Comedy. We are Carrie Gravenson, Abbi Crutchfield, Kaytlin Bailey and Erin Judge. The four of us started the Pink Collar Comedy Tour with a Kickstarter campaign in 2012 and we've been touring ever since. Now we're called CAKE (it's the first letters of our names, get it? Yeah, you get it). You’ve seen us on Comedy Central, TBS, NBC, Funny or Die, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Broad City, MTV, and Last Comic Standing. Soon you might even see us in Philadelphia, face to face, toasting you with our cocktails and making you laugh until you shoot whole cheesesteaks out of your nose. But that all depends on you...

How Does This Work?

We're using Kickstarter to pioneer a new way for independent artists to launch tours. It's simple: Buy your ticket here, on our Kickstarter page. If we sell enough tickets to do the show, we'll see ya there! If not, we won't even charge your credit card, and we can all walk away like none of this ever happened. It's not a donation. It's not charity. It's just you buying a ticket to a brilliant comedy show, the memories of which you will cherish for the rest of your life.

So if you'd like to come to our show on Monday, April 24th at 7pm, then buy your ticket right here and bring us to Philly! Make that dream of brotherly love come true, sister.

Okay, I'm in. This is a cool idea. You must be very smart.

Oh my gosh, thank you! Keep in mind, though, we're also very funny.

You seem funny, but will there be any Philly comics on the show?

Yes! We love her almost as much as you do, beloved local comic Rachel Fogletto will be opening the show for us!

Rachel is more excited about CAKE than she looks!

Where will the show be?

Depends on how many tickets we sell! We're only doing one show in Philadelphia so we want to make sure we find a space that can hold ALL our fans. We'll get a nice place with lots of seating and alcohol. Trust us.

Before the show the CAKE girls will be drinking at the venue, if you hang out we might buy you a drink!

Potential venue? Drinks too expensive?

And when is it again?

If we sell enough tickets to reach our goal, we'll be seeing you on Monday, April 24th at 7pm. 

Until then, we remain:

Abbi Crutchfield is the host of You Can Do Better on truTV. She has also been featured on Comedy Central, TBS, and NBC. Her work on Twitter has earned numerous top lists including Best Tweets of the Year by Huffington Post Comedy and Paste magazine. She is a contributor to the popular e-greetings site Someecards. She is an alum of UCB and the People's Improv Theater and produces The Living Room Show weekly in New York City. She featured opposite Jay Pharoah in the music video for Above Average's Bad Kisser, on truTV's Friends of the People, on TBS's Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, NBC's Mysteries of Laura, and Comedy Central's Broad City.

Erin Judge lives in Los Angeles, writes (mostly) funny stuff, and performs comedy all over the world. Erin's debut novel, Vow of Celibacy, was released by Rare Bird Books in August 2016 to great reviews. Her words also appear in VanityFair.com, the Advocate, and Salon, to name a few.

Erin has appeared on NBC's Last Comic Standing, on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham (2008), and at lots of festivals, including Women in Comedy, Bridgetown, Boston, and Laugh Your Asheville Off. Her first comedy album, So Many Choices, is available from Rooftop Comedy. Erin co-hosts Romantic Comedy, a popular monthly comedy show at The Ripped Bodice bookstore in LA.

Kaytlin Bailey is a stand up comic. You may have seen her on MTV, A&E or Lifetime. You may have heard her on SiriusXM's RaceWars, she's also a popular podcast guest. Her critically acclaimed one woman show Cuntagious sold out NYC Fringe & United Solo. Bailey founded the internationally touring Pink Collar Comedy Tour. Playboy magazine featured her critically acclaimed Naked Show. You should look up her Roast Battles if you're into verbal boxing matches. You may have seen her on the obscure television show CentralXPress a decade ago, but probably not. She performs regularly all over New York, but she's especially proud to be associated with, and thankful to, the Creek & the Cave. She also writes for Vice. 

Carrie Gravenson won the New York Underground Comedy Festival’s Emerging Talent Stand-Up Competition, was runner-up at the Catch a Rising Star Competition, and has been a semi-finalist in the Ventura Comedy Competition and the She Devil Comedy Contest. Carrie played an inebriated reporter in “World Series of Corn Hole,” featured on Funny or Die, and s he made good use of her repressed Queens accent as Sandie, the clueless talent agent in “Black Actress.”

Carrie has been featured in The NY Daily News, CBS Local and The Queens Chronicle. She’s headlined at Carolines on Broadway, NYC's premier comedy nightclub, and continues to headline in other venues around North America.
