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.

He has released four studio albums, a movie, and is currently producing an online video series, “Video Messages for People Who Shouldn’t Care”.
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.
