After receiving an expensive MFA in Fiction from Columbia University in 2002, Mishka Shubaly promptly realized he was more interested in playing music in dive bars than writing. He moved into a Toyota minivan and toured non-stop. After some lean, hard years and a couple hundred thousand miles, he’s become a cult favorite, opening nationally for comedy iconoclast Doug Stanhope, penning the soundtrack for The Unbookables documentary, headlining the Altercation Punk Comedy Tour and appearing on Warped Tour. He has shared the stage with artists like The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and The Decemberists among others.

From Allen, about Allen:
"Salutations. I live in Los Angeles writing and telling jokes. I’ve performed stand-up comedy twice on CONAN. I was recently named one of Comedy Central’s Comics to Watch. One time, I got a standing ovation for telling a single joke. I’m featured on the Holy Fuck. Live Comedy. album. Illegally download it. I’ve performed at South by Southwest, Moontower Comedy Festival, Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, CROM Comedy Festival in Omaha, Comedy Carnivale in Salt Lake City, Hell Yes Fest! in New Orleans, and the RIOT Festival right here in Los Angeles. I was one-fourth of the sketch group WOMEN, which was featured on IFC.com’s Comedy Crib, Tosh.0 and L.A. Weekly’s 10 L.A. Comedy Acts to Watch. One interesting personal fact about me is that I like having sex, because it feels good."
