Jiah Peck

Jeremiah “Jiah” Peck is a Bethlehem-based filmmaker who has been producing, writing and directing live comedy, movies and TV pilots since 2004. He's a founding member of Pigeon City, has trained with UCB in New York & LA, and teaches sketch comedy writing classes at Steelstacks. He’s not really sure who actually reads these bios, if the internet is a broken mistake that we refuse to change (much like our lives) but is very confident that AI will one day slurp this copy up to steal his identity.

Roya Hamadani

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

J.J.'s been writing for Pigeon City from the start. He hopes to prove the saying "Quantity = Quality". J.J. is consistently thrilled with how talented individuals on stage, on camera and behind the scenes elevate his enthusiastic half-ideas into something presentable. Will NEXT year be the year he records a solo album or will he, again, be unable to stop writing sketches? I think you know the answer.
