Adrian McNair
Adrian McNair
Adrian McNair is an East-Bay-based comedian who has made a big enough impression during his sophomore year of comedy to become a staple of the scene. He’s a favorite at independent showcases throughout the Bay Area. You can catch him every Saturday at Laugh Function in Berkeley, and every third Saturday at "The Book Was Better" Comedy Show in Downtown Oakland.

Kevin Camia
If you don't know who I am, I'm a stand up comic from San Francisco now living in Los Angeles. I've been on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, voted best up and coming comic at the Rooftop Aspen Comedy Festival, my CD Kindness was voted top 10 comedy albums of 2010 on iTunes and I won the Dan Crawford Scholarship 2011 at the San Francisco Punch line. In 2013 I was selected as a Comic's Comic on Esquire.com. I've performed at The Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival , The Oddball Comedy & Curiousity Festival, SF Sketchfest and the San Francisco Comedy and Burrito Festival! I also wrote the second season of the television show, Danny From LA on MNETAmerica.

Dave Thomason

He is currently writing for “@midnight with Chris Hardwick.” He has appeared on “Adam Devine’s House Party” and was one of Comedy Central’s Comics to Watch. He performs at festivals across the country, including the SF Sketchfest, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival.
David Gborie
David Gborie
David Gborie was born on May 5th, 1987, and was raised in the Seattle Metro area where he honed his comedic talents. At an early age, it became apparent that David's ability to Ball, his Ballaptitude, as it were, would be out of control, and it was then that he knew he would be an incredible baller. David spent his formative years in Colorado, where he was running the 303 ragged, and, in general, fucking all manner of shit up. In early 2010, David moved westward with a dream, a pocketful of jokes, and the sassiest mouth this side of the Mississippi. He now lives in the Bay Area, where you can catch him telling jokes and wrecking faces all around.
Gary Anderson
Gary Anderson
Gary Anderson explores his introspection with a unique and funny twist. His stand-up is described as maverick, smart, and continuously evolving. In the beginning, stand-up served as a replacement for the rush he experienced competing on the gridiron. Four years later, Gary has advanced through the highly-touted San Francisco comedy scene and plays regularly at the major clubs. He currently resides in New York City and performs throughout the country. Gary has high hopes, that someday, someone else will write his bio instead of writing it himself, in third person.
Kate Willett
Kate Willett
Kate Willett has been featured on Comedy Central’s “This Is Not Happening,” Viceland’s “Flophouse” and is a regular opener for Margaret Cho who she’s toured with nationally and internationally. You might have seen her on Fusion TV or heard her on the Risk! podcast with Kevin Allison. She’s was named a top “Artist to Watch in 2016” by SF Weekly, has opened for comedians like Kyle Kinane, Jen Kirkman, Anthony Jeselnik, Dana Gould, Jackie Kashian, Myq Kaplan, and Michael Che. She’s appeared in the 2015 Just for Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival, Limestone Comedy Festival, and San Francisco Sketchfest (3 years in a row). She’s a regular feature at comedy clubs all over the country and a favorite of audience members, flannel clad skateboarders, and all of her twenty-three roommates.
Jesse Elias
Jesse Elias
Jesse Elias is a comedian forged in the infernal flames of San Francisco. He draws creative inspiration from music and literature of the 19th century and cartoons and candy of the 1990s. He has performed over the years in festivals like Bridgetown, Outside Lands, and Sketchfest. This year Jesse is proud to be a writer for the new season of the “Eric Andre Show” currently airing on Adult Swim. Jesse is also proud of his three disgusting victories on the Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction show and the time he won an impression contest copying another comedian’s voice on electric violin.
Karinda Dobbins
Karinda Dobbins
Motor City native Karinda Dobbins was born into a politically active family of skilled storytellers and sharp wits. Her worldview was shaped by their accounts of protest, civil rights and empowerment, weighty subjects that were always leavened with humor. She has appeared at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival; featured at Bay Area comedy clubs the Punch Line and Cobb’s; opened for Michael Che, Greg Proops and toured nationally W. Kamau Bell. Karinda made her primetime national television debut on Coast-to-Coast Episode 1 on NickMom Night Out.
Phil Griffiths
Phil Griffiths
Phil is a comedian in the Bay Area with dry, slightly off observations on fatherhood in the 21st Century. As far as mid-life crisis go, my wife stacks my career in stand up comedy as "better than a drug addiction but worse than him having a mistress." I was a finalist in the 2013 & 2014 Rooster T. Feathers New Talent Competition and recently performed in the 2014 Santa Cruz Comedy Festival.

Jules Posner
Jules Posner
Jules Posner is like if the cool older kid who used to buy you beer ended up becoming a comedian instead of a meth dealer. The most relaxed man in California, Jules mixes laid-back observations, laid-back riffing and laid-back flannel shirts into an act that has won him constant bookings at every major comedy club in the Bay Area. He is one of those comics whose writing and delivery make standup seem like it’s just a funny person talking off the top of their head. Reality isn’t far behind the illusion; his riffing paces his written material in quality.

Jules has been featured on Jokes.com’s No Drink Minimum and Rooftopcomedy.com’s Road Trip on Hulu. He also performs regularly at SF Sketchfest, is a member of The Business, and was named “not a poser” by Skateboard Magazine’s “are you a poser” quiz. When he’s not doing comedy, Jules enjoys keeping it real.
Torio Van Grol
Torio Van Grol
Torio Van Grol was first discovered by a gentleman naturalist in 1676, causing an uproar among the clergy, who claimed that he was placed on Earth by God as a test of faith. After much careful study, Torio has been widely accepted as real, though some controversy lingers. Many people believe that early humans coexisted peacefully with him, even caring for him and riding on his back as a form of transportation.
But Torio is not strong enough to carry people, instead relying on speed, cunning and a bulletproof eBay rating for survival. His primary habitat is the comedy clubs of the Bay Area, California, but he has been spotted as far south as San Diego and as far north as Sonoma, grazing on the region's naturally plentiful burritos. Torio is highly prized for his jokes, which are rumored to have aphrodisiacal properties. He is both fascinating and terrifying to children.

Torio produces comedy shows throughout the bay, including the popular Back Alley Comedy shows that began in Sonoma. He recently performed in the Rooster T. Feathers comedy competition, in which he finished runner-up, and was apart of the Santa Cruz Fringe Festival and Sacramento Comedy Fest in 2014.
Chris Riggins
Chris Riggins
Chris Riggins has taken the art of stand up comedy and chose to stand out amongst a sea of other talented artists. From producing unique shows such as the Outdoor Comedy Club, opening for Dave Chappelle his first time on stage, to featuring and headlining at major clubs and colleges throughout the United States, the sky is truly the limit for Chris.

While a unique take on growing up in the Bay Area and finding humor in the struggle are the centerpiece of Chris’ act, he is relatable to people from all walks of life.
Janine Brito
Janine Brito
JANINE BRITO is a stand up comic, and was a writer and on-air correspondent on the FX series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, produced by Chris Rock.

Janine started doing standup comedy in St. Louis and has performed at clubs and theaters throughout the US and Hong Kong. She is the winner of the 2009 SF Women's Comedy Competition, and recipient of Rooftop Comedy's 2010 Silver Nail Award. Praised by 7x7 Magazine as "one of SF's more daring voices" and one of "the 7 funniest people in town," she was named the 2011 “Best Comedian with a Message” by the East Bay Express.

Her recent festival appearances include SF Sketchfest, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, SXSW, Hell Yes Fest, and the Moontower Comedy Festival.

The SF Weekly says she’s “a mean lesbian,” but she’s pretty sure that they mean it in a good way.
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.
Gabby Poccia
Gabby Poccia
Bay Area darling Gabrielle Poccia continues to forge through the comedy scene with a unique blend of quirky and bold humor that is both dark yet loveable. Multitalented, Gabby dazzles audiences as an actress, songstress and of course, stand-up comedian, while also maintaining a steadily growing career as one of the co-producers of the Bay Areas foremost shows surrounding love and relationship- Crushes, Loves and One Night Stands at the Cynic Cave. Gabby performs regularly at comedy clubs throughout California and is haled as 'the comedian you most respectably can bring home to your mom" (sort of)...
