David Huntsberger
David Huntsberger
David Huntsberger is a stand-up comedian who hosted Syfy’s late night comedy clip show REACTOR, and whose voice you might recognize from the Professor Blastoff podcast with Tig Notaro and Kyle Dunnigan, which premiered at #1 on iTunes and was named to Entertainment Weekly’s “Must List” at #2.

David is a regular on the Doug Loves Movies podcast, and has also been a guest on Marc Maron’s WTF, Sklarbro Country, The Dork Forest, Fitzdog Radio, and numerous other podcasts. He has released three CDs, with the two most recent through Stand-Up Records. Humanitis, released in 2011, was named #1 on the Serious Comedy Site’s year-end list, as was his most recent CD, Explosion Land, which debuted in the top 15 of the iTunes comedy charts. In describing the album, which deals largely with human evolution, technology, and beliefs, Daniel Berkowitz of The Spit Take said: “Huntsberger rarely talks about himself, but he makes up for that lack of intimacy by not merely addressing topics ostensibly foreign to comedy fans, but by doing so in an intelligent, fluid and slightly absurdist way.”

David has made appearances on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend as well as NBC’s Last Comic Standing and has written for The Benson Interruption on Comedy Central. He has been invited to the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, Bentzen Ball Comedy Festival in D.C., the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR, The Comedy and Burrito Festival in San Francisco, CA and the Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin, TX.

His latest project is a new podcast called Space Cave that consists of David sitting down with scientists and academics, having some beers, and talking about life, the universe, and everything. The A.V. Club said of the Space Cave, “Huntsberger’s thirst for trivia to concoct this promising new venture makes it well worth getting into the cave on the ground floor.”
Lydia Popovich
Lydia Popovich
Lydia Popovich is a SF-based comedian. Her anecdotal humor and vivid storytelling make her a unique voice in a sea of dick jokes.

She’s a regular at Rooster T. Feathers, Punch Line SF, Punch Line Sacramento, Cobb's Comedy Club, Doc's Lab and The San Jose Improv. Recently she performed 4 minutes of stand-up on Creepy KOFY Movie Time and taught Derek Waters how to take a Jell-O shot on Comedy Central's Drunk History.

Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters once touched her arm and said, "Hey, you're pretty funny."
Red Scott
Red Scott
Growing up in San Jose, CA, Red Scott never saw things the same way as other kids; he thought he was cool. Born in the early 80s, he established himself as a trend-setter — fat, asthmatic, and socially inept years before Asperger’s was a syndrome or obesity an epidemic. On his way to finding the stage, Red had several diversions, ranging from working as a Software Developer to delivering for Pizza Hut in South Central Los Angeles. Red combines obscure and outdated references with the crazed insistence of a mental patient. His act encompasses everything from politics to absurdism to wordplay, all combined with deft crowd work.

When not on stage, Red explores the myriad of ways an individual can be indoors and fully protected from the sun. His podcast discussing Game of Thrones, “Boars, Gore, and Swords” has twice been featured on BoingBoing. He’s performed in SF Sketchfest 2011-2013 and is a regular at The San Francisco Punch Line, The San Jose Improv, Rooster T Feathers, as well as the usual dive bars and laundromats.
Zack Chapaloni
Zack Chapaloni
Zack’s first performance was a solo rendition of “I’ve Been Workin on the Railroad” in the 3rd grade. He killed. And though there wasn’t a dry eye nor dry pair of pants in the house, Zack craved something more. Nine years later he performed impressions of teachers at his High School Pasta Dinner. Again, the crowd was completely drenched in liquid remnants of overwhelming astonishment (some say it was the pasta). Three years later, he tried stand-up. I’ll give you one guess; Friggin’ obliterated. Then he left home to grow weed with his father... turned out Zack wasn’t great at everything. So he returned to San Francisco to pursue stand-up - and to go to college so his mom would stop crying.

While in college, Zack was a semi-finalist in the TBS National Comedy Competition and runner-up in the Central Valley Comedy Competition. He has since established himself as a prominent comedian in The Bay Area. He is a regular at San Francisco’s Punchline and Cobb’s, and has performed at Tommy T’s, and The Westside Comedy Theater in LA. Zack co-wrote and starred as “Todd Olsen” in the Metacafe series “PausePlay”, and has opened for David Huntsberger, Clinton Jackson and Baron Vaughn.
