Our guests for our 10/23 show includes:
Iris Benson - Iris Benson is a comedian because no other profession will have her and that includes drug dealing and prostitution. Since  her comedy debut in 2011 she’s garnered such praise as “ Bleak and honest ”, “pleasantly dark”, “wonderfully weird” and “pretty good for a woman”  by no one worth mentioning. Glenn Sumi of Toronto Now described her as “least likeable”, “angry” and “misanthropic” to which her best friend’s husband, Clint, retorted, via Facebook “ He doesn’t like angry and misanthropic comics? - so he’s missing out on George Carlin, Bill Hicks, Dennis Leary, Lewis Black, Roseanne Barr……pretty much all my favorite comics.” Fellow comic Mean Dave says of her, “ She is a very sweet person and a funny comedian who I relate to very much. And she once drove a table of Mormons away with one fell swoop of an anal sex joke simply cuz {sic} she didn’t know that’s how young Mormon girls preserve their virginity.” and comic and author Steve Mix says, “Warn your children about Iris Benson…before it is too late.”. Iris has performed all over the United States, making appearances at Comedy Festivals such as The Laughing Devil Comedy Festival (NY, NY), Trial by Laughter Competition (Indianapolis, IN), The She-Devil Festival (NY, NY), The She-Dot Festival (Toronto, ON) and the Cape Fear Comedy Festival (Wilmington, NC).
Duat Mai – In his own words, Duat Mai is the funniest comedian in the bay area. And soon he will be the funniest comedian in the country. In fact if he spoke more languages he would eventually become the funniest comedian in the world. Don’t let him get started on life on other planets. If you watch him and do not laugh he is just working on new material. He is clever and wild and if given a chance will sleep with your cousin…and wake her up in time for work. “Can I put my feet up?”
Steve Budd - Steve Budd recently relocated from Boston and hasn’t looked back. In addition to doing the standup thing, Steve Budd is an actor, storyteller, and solo performer who’s done his thing at The Marsh,The Vent, The Shout, TMI, and Tell It On Tuesday. This is his first time on Mars.
Tirumari Jothi - Tirumari has many interests; you can find him studying in a library, working towards his degree in Integrative Biology; or hunched over his computer, drawing the next comic for his site; or on a stage, trying to make people laugh; or hunched over his computer, playing too many video games. He’s been drawing for quite a while, but doing the stand-up thing for a few months; though he’s been a ridiculous nerd for the majority of his life.

Cody Blaine (Finalist 2013 Walk the Plank Comedy Competition)
Tim Young (Bizarro Rick Moranis from 20 years ago)

 Our guests for our 10/16 show includes:
Andrew Holmgren - Comedian Andrew Holmgren embodies a rare combination of humility and good looks rarely seen before on this planet. The laid-back jokester performs with a certain reverence for irreverence and his succinct, clever sense of humor has caused people to call him a smart-ass more times than he cares to remember. Holmgren comes to party, based out of San Francisco, he was named one of 2013’s “comics to watch” by SF Weekly and was named “Best Comedian” in 2014 by the same publication. Andrew produces the popular San Francisco comedy showcase ‘Get Yucked Up’, he performs all over the country and has appeared at SF Sketchfest, Savage Henry Comedy Festival and The Sacramento Comedy Fest, where he was named best visiting comedian. I’d buy him a beer if I were you. He’s also got great hair.
Ivan Hernandez - Ivan Hernandez is a comic living in San Francisco. He likes food and some social issues and comic books. He has performed at the SF Sketchfest, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Litquake, Supercon comic convention, International Cannabis and Hemp Expo, Sacramento Comedy Festival, SF Comedy and Burrito Festival, and plenty of other places. Boars, Gore, and Swords, the show he co-hosts with fellow comedian Red Scott, is a member of the Boing Boing podcast network. He produces Give Me Fiction, a monthly prose storytelling show in the basement of Lost Weekend.
Kristee Ono - Kristee is a guilty pleasure. You really do not want your friends to know how much you actually enjoy her. Relatively entertaining, she has been in the San Francisco comedy scene for six years, carving a nice little cave for herself. She hosted the Ladies’ Room Comedy Open Mic, the city’s only all-female comedy open mic. She has performed at the Punchline, Cobbs, the Purple Onion and anywhere else she can.
Joe Gorman - Conceived in the South, raised in the Midwest, and influenced by the West Coast, Joe Gorman is the embodiment of the American Dream. His comedy style has been described as both “funny” and “entertaining.” Joe has performed all over the country, his greatest moment being kicked out of a bar in New York for being too drunk. You can see Joe regularly at the San Francisco Punchline, Cobb’s, and any place where people cry out for justice.
Joe Tobin - Originally from Philadelphia, Joe has become a regular in Bay Area comedy clubs, and he has been fortunate to work with such great comedians as Dave Chappelle, Jake Johannsen, Doug Benson, and Zach Galifiankis, to name a few. (Joe Montana once shook his hand and said, “good job.” This may have been the highlight of his career.) An East Coast personality trapped in a West Cost lifestyle, Joe’s standup has been featured on the Independent Film Channel, the SF Sketchfest, and he also blogs (mostly about sports) at joetobin.com.
Plus Molly Trad, Bert DiVietri, Joe Nguyen and more!

 Our guests for our 10/9 show includes:
Kelly McCarron - Kelly McCarron might be the most adorable stand-up comedian you’ll ever see. Combining sharp writing with dynamic voice and character work, Kelly hides her biting sense of humor behind a delightfully cheery demeanor. Her material touches on universal topics like dating and wanting a baby when she’s not ready, and more personal themes like being overweight and mental illness. However unique and ridiculous the situation, Kelly McCarron makes it fun and relatable for all. Kelly has been featured in the Laughing Skull and San Diego Comedy Festival and is really popular on Comcast On Demand in the Atlanta, Georgia area for some reason. Her ChickComedy videos on YouTube have garnered 50,000 views. In 2011 she won the Battle of the Bay Comedy Competition, topping over 100 of the best comics in the San Francisco Bay Area, and in 2012 she released her first comedy album “I’d Eat Them Both,” which has been called “sweet sarcasm that never tarnishes the performer’s charm.“
Liz Stone - Liz Stone is a corporate attorney who spent one too many weekends in the office and nearly hung herself on a rope fashioned from financial documents. Fortunately Liz discovered stand up comedy as a balance to the corporate grind and has been entertaining audiences with her unique perspective ever since. She performs all over the Bay Area, including the San Francisco Punchline, Cobbs Comedy Club, and Rooster T Feathers, and was voted one of “America’s Funniest Lawyers”.
Juan Medina - Juan Medina is one of the most highly-visible, and occasionally loudest, standup comedians working in the Bay Area. His comedy has a remarkably broad range, from apoplectic yelling to cerebral, complex riffing delivered with the aplomb of someone who had been rehearsing the words for hours. He is a puzzle box with as many soft edges as sharp ones, and despite all of his unpredictability (or maybe because of it), his act is consistently engrossing. Juan is hard to summarize, but easy to describe: funny. Juan is the President of the Bay Area production company True Hustle Entertainment, runs his own weekly show (The PM Show with Juan Medina), and has performed at independent showcases and major clubs across California.
Jeff Anaya - Student, Writer, Performer, Slacker, Liar, shitty bio-writer.
Plus Walker Glenn, Bert DiVietri, Joe Nguyen and more!

Nightlife on Mars presents “The 40% of Business Special – 10/2”!
Our guests for our 10/2 show includes:
Natasha Muse - Natasha Muse is pretty funny, for a comedian. She began performing in 2002 as “Ginger” at AsiaSF. Her friends claimed she was much too shy to be a good performer, and the fact that they were kinda right didn’t stop her from trying it anyway. She sorta proved them all wrong. In 2008, Natasha made the leap from lip-synching to stand-up comedy, and began to create a buzz in the San Francisco comedy scene. Her cerebral wit, whimsical wordplay, and unique perspective on life have earned her the adoration of audiences and the respect of her peers. She’s guaranteed to be at least the second-funniest transexual you know. Natasha performs all over the Bay Area, including Cobb’s Comedy, the SF Punchline, Harvey’s and the Dark Room. In addition to stand-up, Natasha produces and hosts the monthly underground hit “A Funny Night for Comedy” at the Actors’ Theatre, and the podcast “Too Soon.” She also writes and performs with the sketch group Femikaze, writes about life as a mom for Queer Landia, and is a force to be reckoned with on Twitter. Natasha is the winner of the 2010 Battle of the Bay competition, Miss Toolbox 2011, and also took home the Miss Photogenic trophy in Model Search 2004.
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.
Clara Bijl - Clara was born in Paris, France, raised in the Alps, attended schools in Germany, Switzerland, and South Carolina; then one day, she moved to New York City to begin a career in stand-up comedy. Performing all around the US and Europe, she became a prolific writer of cutting, witty, internationally flavored comedy. Clara was a semifinalist in Comedy Central’s Laugh Riots competition, she performed in Holland’s “The Comedy Factory TV Show,” the New York Underground Comedy Festival, the Lausanne Comedy Festival, the Detroit International Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, the Montreaux Comedy Festival  and was a writer for the hit Swiss TV show, “Le Petit Silvant Illustré.” Clara currently lives in San Francisco.
Aviva Siegel - When Aviva Siegel hatched out of an egg and into the SF comedy scene everyone was very surprised and impressed. She walks and talks on the stage like she’s been using legs and lips for years, wowing audiences left and right. With a unique speaking voice, she is a reliable laugh-getter, a terrific and economical writer, and an asset to every show. Her credits include the SF Punch Line, Rooster T Feathers, The Business SF and Lost Weekend Video.

Our guests for our 9/25 show includes:
Allison Sciulla - Alison is an author, comic, musician and multimedia artist. Her debut book, “You’re Probably A Slut” ranked #11 in iTunes Top Paid humor books. Her second book, “And Then I Shit My Pants: And Other True Short Stories” has definitely stirred some controversy. But controversy is no stranger to Sciulla. Her live stage show features antics that would embarrass a Van Nuys stripper. Based out of Los Angeles, California, Allison performs stand up comedy in surrounding areas and tours with other comedians all across the U.S. Raised in an Italian household, Allison was brought up to be very verbally and physically expressive; tools that prove to be invaluable in her quest to be the loudest, most obnoxious person in any given room. She is currently working on her fourth book and proving to the world that feeling shameful is a shame.
Irene Tu - Irene Tu is a stand-up comic, writer, and performer from Chicago, now also living in San Francisco. Some have described her as “sarcastic” but she just tells it like it is. She has been in SF Sketchfest, Limestone Comedy Festival, Cape Fear Comedy Festival, She-Devil Comedy Festival, Chicago Women’s Funny Festival, and was a finalist in Rooftop Comedy’s National College Comedy Competition. You can see her perform all around Chicago and the Bay Area.
Phil Griffiths - Phil Griffiths is a native of the UK.  Luckily, when he was a young boy his family realized the weather there is complete shit and moved to the Bay Area… where they quickly realized that if they really cared about the weather, they should have moved to Los Angeles. So, young Phil grew up impersonating an average American Boy, eschewing a British accent despite the fact it would have really helped him pick up chicks, deceiving friends and family for years until becoming a citizen in 2012.  (DUAL citizen - take that CIA Watchlist!)  After honing his comedy craft for years on private audiences (very, very private audiences of one, in his bathroom, alone, with his “thoughts”), Phil decided to start performing in front of audiences of living, breathing people. As far as mid-life crisis go, Phil’s wife stacks his career in stand up comedy as better than a drug addiction but worse than him having a mistress.  Phil was a finalist in the 2013 & 2014 Rooster T. Feathers New Talent Competition and has performed at other major comedy venues throughout the Bay Area.
Adrian McNair - Adrian is an East-Bay-based comedian who made a big enough impression during his freshman year of comedy to have become a staple of the scene. He has performed at the San Jose Improv, Tommy T’s and is a favorite at independent showcases.
Ryan Papazian - Ryan is a stand up comedian that hails from Orange County, California. Ryan began his comedy career when he was 18 at an open mic at the Hollywood Improv in 2008. Soon after he started grinding all over southern California. In summer 2011, he decided he had enough of performing for soccer moms in coffee shops with their fake bullshit personalities and moved to San Francisco. He has performed numerous times at the Purple Onion and represented SF State in the National College Comedy Competition. He recently hosted Vince Royale and Friends at the Punchline Comedy Club. His hilarious frustration and defeated demeanor with unruly audiences have made him a favorite among hecklers.

Our guests for our 9/18 show includes:
Nato Green - Nato Green was summed up more or less accurately by The East Bay Express as, “erudite and acerbic, a San Francisco-raised father, union organizer, gastronome, bibliophile, and political sparkplug.” He performs on Fridays at the legendary alternative comedy show at Hemlock Tavern,  The Business. His podcast The Nato Sessions is produced by 3200 Stories. His first comedy album, The Nato Green Party, was released by Rooftop Comedy. Nato has been named San Francisco’s Best Comedian by the SF Weekly, Huffington Post, and CBS. Nato is the creator of Iron Comic, the Iron Chef-spoofing comedy game show he co-hosts with Moshe Kasher. Nato’s humor commentaries have appeared in VICE, Truthdig, Huffington Post, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, The Rumpus, and The Bold Italic. Nato wrote for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on FX and toured nationally with W. Kamau Bell & Janine Brito as Laughter Against the Machine.
Nick Stargu (DJ REAL) - Nick Stargu is DJ REAL, a San Francisco-based alternative musical comedy act. Performing all original songs, complete with costume changes, bad dance moves, and interactive multimedia, DJ REAL’s live act has been likened to the Talking Heads, The Residents, and Steve Martin. With a wide range of influences, DJ REAL’s songs vary from hip-hop, to folk, to the bizarre. Beginning in the Connecticut music scene in 2001, DJ REAL moved to the Bay Area, where he has been gaining recognition in San Francisco’s eclectic music and comedy circuits. He has performed in a number of festivals, including: the 2008, 2009 and 2010 San Francisco Sketch Festivals; the 2011 NoisePop Festival; and most recently at the 2011 Bridgetown Comedy Festival.

Nicole Calasich - Nicole Calasich is a comedian and writer based out of San Francisco. When she’s not confusing people with her sweet orphan-face and jerk-sarcasm combo, she performs stand-up comedy at the SF Punchline, the San Jose Improv, Rooster T. Feather’s, Cobb’s, and festivals like SF Sketchfest and the Shits & Giggles Festival. Her comedy takes on hot button issues like: “How great are avocados, you guys? Seriously, so great. Am I right?” and “Remember Living Single?” It gets deep, guys. For real.  Her past sketch work with Sunshine Fortress and the all female group, Boner Patrol, enjoyed admission to SF Sketchfest four years running and quickly garnered “On the Lookout” status from the SF Weekly, respectively. She’s an absurdist and a lover of pets as long as she doesn’t have to keep them alive. She can’t wait to meet your dog and/or cat.
Stefani Silverman - Stefani Silverman is a San Francisco based comic dedicated to finding meaning in life through humor. A former attorney, she uses her hard earned critical thinking skills to talk about such complex topics as food, sex and things she sees on Muni.  Mostly observational, increasingly self revelatory, Stefani’s comedy will get you laughing and keep you thinking. She is available for all sorts of gigs - her comedy lends itself to everything from the dark drunk environment of the club and bar scene - to day time corporate and community events. Check her out at Cafe Royale at 800 Post st, where she produces a monthly showcase called Tickled Pink!co produces a monthly showcase called The Comikaze Lounge the third Wednesday of each month. She has performed at Cobb’s with Comedians at Law and on San Francisco’s famous Comedy Day and is a regular at the Sunday New Talent Show case at the SF Punchline.

Our guests for our 9/11 show includes:
 
Shanti Charan - Shanti Charan’s bubbly personality and contagious smile lure in audiences and her comedic abilities keeps them laughing. She is a fast-rising fresh face in the Bay Area comedy scene. Her ability to formulate quick connections makes it easy for her to communicate with diverse audiences. She won 1st place in the 2011 Rooster T Feather’s Comedy Competition and participated in the 2011 San Francisco International Comedy Competition where she advanced to the semi-finals. Charan was recently awarded SF Weekly’s 2012 Best Stand-Up on the Way Up. SF Weekly says Charan’s writing “is clever and confident beyond her years.”
 
Steve Lee - Steve Lee may be the only disabled Chinese comedian working in America. His comedy is mainly centered around living with disability and racism, and his content is remarkably original. Rather than being encumbered by stereotypes, Steve is vitalized by them, and winks back at us through their transparencies. He blends storytelling and punchlines to convey his belief that we are all equal - equally ignorant, fallible, weird, and wanting to be free. For Steve, comedy is a way to get people to laugh about their own shortcomings, including himself. Audiences are left feeling like they’ve witnessed a rare talent at work. He was invited to perform at the Burbank Comedy Festival and on the final round at the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas.
 
Travis Clark - Travis Clark is a comedian who lives in Los Angeles with at least 1 dog and 1 wife that he is willing to admit to. He is also a writer, actor and occasionally a musician. As a writer Travis has written for Universal Cartoon Studios, Disney, TBS, VH-1 and YouToo Social TV (yes, that’s a thing). As an actor he’s an Ovation Award winning member of the critically acclaimed Troubadour Theater Company. He’s appeared on episodes of CSI and Cold Case. He was somehow lucky enough to land the role of ‘Travis’ in the film Punching The Clown. His voice has been featured in cartoons and even in some live puppet shows. As a musician Travis has been kicked out of every band he’s ever been in… including the ones he started. Travis also co-hosts and produces a weekly comedy podcast with his wife Brandi. It’s called Tiny Odd Conversations and it’s like eavesdropping on your crazy neighbors without having to get dangerously close to them. It’s available on iTunes, Stitcher and streaming on tocpod.com
 
Jason Van Glass - Scoomie nominee Jason Van Glass is well-known for his dry wit and hump. Since moving to Los Angeles, he has performed at theaters, comedy clubs, colleges, and beach-boardwalks across the southland. In addition to hosting Gangbusters! every Tuesday night at Westwood’s Improv Space, you may have seen him that one time on Adult Swim.
 
Adam Pearlstein - Adam is a stand up comedian who performs in theaters, clubs, bars, café’s, laundromats, street corners and parking lots all over California. When he’s not doing comedy, he enjoys rock climbing, skydiving, and a bunch of other things that aren’t true. Adam performs stand-up comedy every single day.


Plus Justin Alan, Tyler Hinz, David Roth and more!
