Roya Hamadani is a Lehigh Valley native who flew the coop to Massachusetts where she continues to do stand up and produce sketch comedy. She wrote and directed the sketch Skweezy-Moosh, which featured her wildly jumping around in women’s shapewear, and was included in the 2022 Vermont Comedy Festival. Her favorite color is seafoam green.
J.J. Ellis has been writing sketches for a long time. Sometime, he also finds himself on stage and hosts Decent Exposure Radio on WXLV. Fake commercial “Pepstone Auto Repair” was honored at the Allentown Film Festival in 2023, which was nice. He has big dreams and wants to do so much in this world, but he just can’t stop writing sketches. Pigeon City is the culmination of his wasted potential. Enjoy!
Jeremiah “Jiah” Peck is a Bethlehem-based filmmaker who has regularly produced, written and directed live comedy, independent movies and TV pilots since 2004. He’s a founding member of Pigeon City, has trained with UCB in New York and teaches sketch comedy writing at Steelstacks. Check out his movie & seltzer opinions on the “Amusing Ourselves to Death” podcast. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, running, sitting silently with a steaming cup of tea while reflecting on his fragile mortality, and gaming with his boyz.
