Cheya fled San Fransisco for Los Angeles because he wanted to be closer to comedy, but in a city where a gin & tonic was still $12. He now does stand up & creates podcasts in his sandy new home. Cheya also co-hosts Trent Talk, over on the Benview Network!

Host Information


Co-host of Hey Whoopie Cat!

Hey Whoopie Cat is a live comedy & storytelling showcase hosted by Clare Dickerson and Cheya Cary. We bring in our funniest friends from the LA area to share their stories and deliver killer sets once a month.

Hey Whoopie Cat takes place at Theatre of Note in Hollywood, CA and is produced by company member Aaron Saldaña. 


Co-host of High Crimes

Clare is obsessed with true crime & Cheya has a knack for crazy historical events, so we decided - in the vein of Drunk History - to spark up on that legally obtained California kush and share our favorite tales. 

"The stories you’re about to hear are pretty fucked up - and so are we. We are not historians, detectives, doctors, professionals of any kind, and definitely not cops. We’d have to tell you if we were. These stories are told for entertainment purposes and some details may be inaccurate or exaggerated. (We are high, after all.)
