Scott Capurro
Scott Capurro
Scott Capurro was reared in Daly City, California; at age 3, he swam the English Channel. Since 1993, he's avoided AIDS by telling unsavory jokes in every English speaking country. Scott is trusting and thus surrounded by duplicity, yet he continues challenging himself, because he's physically challenged and emotionally unstable.

Described by San Francisco Weekly (free press, edited by lesbians and designed by trannys with large hands and hidden agendas) as "stand-up in the very best possible sense - deadpan, ever-alert and hilarious" Scott has appeared in Mrs. Doubtfire, where, effortlessly, he played a homosexual; and Star Wars: Phantom Menace, where, breathlessly, he wore a body stocking.

Scott knows David Cameron (wink, wink) and Nelson Mandela. Well, he's met Nelson once. They're both vegetarians. Actually, Scott is. Nelson said he was, to impress Scott. Cameron eats anything.
Joe Klocek
Joe Klocek
Joe Klocek has become one of San Francisco's most unique comics. With razor sharp wit he uses to 'work the crowd', Joe is in high demand at clubs and corporate functions. Raised in the midwest, but now a confirmed San Francisco resident, Joe brings a refreshing look at life through the eyes of a class clown who read too much.
Reggie Steele
Reggie Steele
Stand-up comedian Reggie Steele began his comedy career in 2000 when he decided to take a friends advice to stop "wasting his talent" and enrolled in the San Francisco Comedy College. Inspired, he hit every open mic the Bay Area had to offer polishing his characteristic storytelling style of telling real life stories with his own unique 'embellishments." Reggie's natural and engaging style proved to be very popular among audiences and in 2003 he won the Rooster T Feathers Amateur comedy competition, besting over a 100 Bay Area comedians. Reggie shares his stories with great comedic physicality, wit, intelligence, and warmth which invites audiences to naturally connect with him.

Since his comedic debut, Reggie has appeared in numerous corporate events and comedy clubs including the San Jose Improv, Rooster T Feathers, Pepperbelly's, the San Francisco Punchline and many more. He has also performed with a variety of very talented comedians including Dave Chappelle, Damon Wayans, Tommy Davidson, Bob Marley, the Late Freddy Soto, Tommy Drake, Megan Mooney, Jackie Kashian, John Witherspoon, Kevin Hart, the late Eli Tapley and many more.

Reggie is currently based in Oakland, California and can be found performing regularly at local venues and anywhere his car will take him. No matter where you are, if you have a stage, an audience, a microphone (don't even need a microphone), and the desire to entertain with a true professional, then you have found your man. So don't hesitate to call. He doesn't just perform but he re-lives it for all to see.

Those who know him say he's a charismatic, outgoing, genuine guy who respects and works at his craft seriously. His comedy is universal and appeals to people from all walks of life.
Steven Pearl
Steven Pearl
Comedian, writer, director, air-guitarist extraordinaire!

A well-respected comedian whose been compared to a tornado on amphetamines. His high-energy comedy act is both outrageous and hysterically original.

He began his stand-up career in such prestigious NYC comedy clubs as Catch A Rising Star and The Improv, moving to San Francisco in 1979.

He eventually discovered a comedian could only go so far in San Francisco and moved on to Los Angeles in 1987.
Andrew St. James
Andrew St. James
Andrew St James is an 19 year old singer songwriter from San Francisco's foggy west side. With a beyond-his-years lyrical vision and a unique gift for melody-making, St James's music lands firmly in the alternative folk world. His timeless songwriting skills will make you second guess his age.

On his debut album, Doldrums, St James teams up with veteran Bay Area producer Jim Greer (a platinum record recipient for his work with Foster the People) to produce a work of deep themes and magical lyrics.

His next release will come in the fall of 2014. ASJ lives in San Francisco CA.
