About Us Events Cast Bios Videos

Fun in Moderation is a New York City-based sketch comedy team comprised of Kendall Bowden, Austin Elias-de Jesus, Syd King, and Nick Ryan. The show is an all-night party with sketch comedy, stand-up, and games in an effort to, you guessed it, disappoint our parents.

Just like every other sketch group, two of us are dating, one of us has a podcast, and all four of us have a hard time making eye contact with people. We've performed at Caveat NYC, Asylum NYC, and PIT Sketchfest, and we were recently featured in The New Yorker.

Cast Members

Kendall Bowden

Kendall Bowden (she/her) is a NYC-based actress and comedian. Kendall trained at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Upright Citizens Brigade, and Second City. She is also a regularly featured extra on Saturday Night Live so you may have seen her mom's recent Facebook post with a blurry picture of her standing behind Keenan Thompson.


Austin Elias-de Jesus

Austin Elias-de Jesus (he/him) is an NYC-based writer, comedian, and actor (when necessary). He is also a writer on the UCB house sketch comedy team Baby Todd. When not doing comedy, Austin is an editor at The New York Times. His writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The Ringer, Slate, and on a Google review of a breakfast restaurant that promised him a free dessert if he wrote something nice about them on the internet.


Syd King

Syd King (she/her) is an NYC-based comedian, who acts a little on the side. She originally hails from Indiana where she was raised Catholic which informs much of her comedy (and therapy sessions). She is also the co-host of the Good Girl Gone Sad Podcast. Comedy credits include Asheville Comedy Festival, Detroit Comedy Festival, New York Comedy Festival, and that one time she sang on Saturday Night Live. Additionally, she is a proud Disney adult and owner of a spotted leopard gecko named March.


Nick Ryan

Nick Ryan (he/him) is a comedy writer who was raised in the tri-state area (not New York or Connecticut). Nick is currently employed at Zuri Agency as a talent agent assistant, and you’ve probably seen the back of his head a few times as a featured background actor on Saturday Night Live. Nick received a BFA in Film and Television from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2021. In his spare time, Nick enjoys talking about the Knicks, getting mad about the Knicks, and eventually crying about the Knicks.
