Hello I’m Josh Bombart and I’m the founder and CEO of Hyena LLC. Being an avid fan of standup comedy I always found information on comedy shows to be limited, as I was always prompted to go to Manhattan’s more recognized comedy clubs. What many people don’t know, is that many of the comedians performing at those venues are also performing in more intimate venues, such as bars, cafes, theaters and event spaces throughout the city. Living in Brooklyn, I wanted to find comedy shows in my own neighborhood. Had I never serendipitously walked into a bar called Freehold when it was hosting a comedy show, I would have never known that it hosts a monthly comedy shows with top tier comics that can be found on Comedy Central and Netflix.

Hello I’m Josh Bombart and I’m the founder and CEO of Hyena LLC. Being an avid fan of standup comedy I always found information on comedy shows to be limited, as I was always prompted to go to Manhattan’s more recognized comedy clubs. What many people don’t know, is that many of the comedians performing at those venues are also performing in more intimate venues, such as bars, cafes, theaters and event spaces throughout the city. Living in Brooklyn, I wanted to find comedy shows in my own neighborhood. Had I never serendipitously walked into a bar called Freehold when it was hosting a comedy show, I would have never known that it hosts a monthly comedy shows with top tier comics that can be found on Comedy Central and Netflix. Hyena is a comedy app that caters to people’s comedic tastes, interests, and locations. Hyena aims to make finding comedy shows a smooth and easy process while also giving both comedians and venues more exposure to promote their endeavors. Comedians have the ability to claim a profile thus promoting themselves by adding photos, providing a description of who they are, embedding video clips, providing tour dates, as well as podcast links. Comedy venues (including restaurants, clubs, and more intimate venues) also have the ability to promote comedy shows with the same tools. Links to ticketing will be provided on the app. It is a free app for users, and they will be able to follow their favorite comedians in order to be notified when their favorite acts are taking place. Users will also be given suggestions based upon their comedic preferences. Users have the ability to adjust their preferences by choosing specific genres of comedy such as date night comedy, latino comedy, LGBTQ comedy, and so forth. It is no secret that we live in a political climate where there are many boundaries on certain topics. With comedy being a subjective art form, Hyena provides a level of transparency where comedians can display the style of their comedy and users can preface various comedic styles. Hyena helps comedians diversify from each other with customizable profiles that can positively effect their careers. As of right now, I am the sole owner and founder of Hyena, but I welcome any partnership that is mutually beneficial.
