Kristee Ono
Kristee Ono
Kristee Ono loves burritos and is dying to tell you about it. A little dark, a little weird, relatively entertaining, she has been in the San Francisco comedy scene for 7 years gently introducing herself into your system a little bit at a time as not to overwhelm you. She performs all over the Bay Area and beyond. She was also a host of the Ladies’ Room Comedy Open Mic, the city’s only all-female comedy open mic. She wants to be where you are, if you’ll have her.

Natasha Muse
Natasha Muse
Natasha Muse is the C3P0 of San Francisco comedy: she's been mistaken for a golden god but in reality she's a bumbling gay robot. SF Weekly declared her the "Funniest Tranny in SF." She's a member of the stand-up collective the Business; has been in such comedy festivals as the SF Sketchfest and Bridgetown; and is a regular at the SF Punchline, Cobb's Comedy Club and Doc's Lab.
Natasha's comedy is so good it's not even funny.
