Rylan has announced her candidacy for Mayor of New York City and is running on a unique platform. Can she count on your vote?

Rylan Sylvester got her comedic start doing college improv in 2014. She later hosted and produced her college troupe’s 25th Anniversary Alumni Show in 2017 with 30+ performing alumni and 200+ in attendance. She went on to train with the Upright Citizens Brigade and the Brooklyn Comedy Collective, and now performs weekly on a house team at The PIT as a part of their “Monday Madness” series. She also performs regularly with an indie improv troupe, which won UCB’s Indie Cagematch competition in October 2019. Her last three performances of her solo show “The Mayor” have been sold out shows; two with the BCC (The Brick Theater, Cantina Royal) and one in the The PIT Striker.
