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 was also part of the successful alternative comedy showcase, Things We Made, in San Francisco. DJ REAL has performed at the San Francisco Punchline, the Purple Onion, and other clubs throughout the Bay Area. He has performed on bills with acts such as Mike Phirman (Hard n’ Phirm), Dragon Boy Suede (Who Charted?), and DJ Dougg Pound (Tim and Eric). He’s even opened for Devo! 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.

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.

Mary Van Note - Mary Van Note is a comedian of the weird variety. She is the creator and star of the award-winning Independent Film Channel web series The Mary Van Note Show: Gavin Really Wants Me. She is a SF Weekly Masterminds grant recipient, a seven-time SF Sketchfest performer, and an Andy Kaufman Award Semi-Finalist. The San Francisco Bay Guardian called her a “Zine-Queen Comedian” as she regularly makes zines, crafts and mini-comics. Her specialties are stick-figures and cross-stitch.
Kelly Anneken - Kelly Anneken is what happens when Kim Kardashian looks like Bette Midler and tweets like Roseanne. This Oakland-based funny person and all-around swell gal performs standup comedy at clubs and dive bars, including the SF Punchline, Cobb’s, Crackers, and Go Bananas.

She has shared a stage with Jim Gaffigan and Anthony Jeselnik at Austin’s Moontower Comedy Festival and has appeared “in conversation” with Tig Notaro, Amy Schumer, and John Waters.

Cheryl White - Cheryl White hails from the wilds of Humboldt County: amid the marijuana-growers and rifle-armed mountain men, Cheryl upheld the virtues of civilization by teaching English to high school students. She is a mother, a widow, an ex-wife, a friend and a lover of all things expensive and sardonic. Her perspective is eclectic: once a teacher, a bartender, a phone psychic, and a yachtie, Cheryl is a bountiful blonde with can’t miss jokes. Since coming to the Bay Area, comedy venues have been left stunned—or mildly pleased—by her insightful, sharp humor. Jokes range from sassy commentary on the unlikely reality of dating to whimsical observations of her own and others’ foibles. She is excited to be performing currently on the west coast in San Francisco and Los Angeles! 
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.
Matt Gubser - With his mellow personality and razor sharp wit, Matt’s comedy relentlessly challenges a spectrum of social conventions including politics, organized religion, issues of all shapes and sizes, and recounts the absurdities of his experiences parenting, dating and aging. Also dick jokes. Matt has performed at clubs and comedy festivals across the western US, including SF Sketchfest, the Sacramento Comedy Festival, S.H.I.T.S. and Giggles Comedy Festival, & Santa Cruz Fringe Fest.  He is part of the Ha Ha Heathens Comedy Tour and co-produces “It’s Just Two Minutes,” a monthly comedy show in San Francisco.
Kevin Whittinghill - Though he’s still new to the comedy scene, KG has shared his dark and playful wit with audiences throughout the country. Just this year you may have seen him performing at LA’s Scripted Comedy Festival and the Laughing Devil Comedy Festival in NYC. He likes bananas.
And more!

He is a favorite of comedy festivals such as: The SF Sketch Fest and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival. Go see him now as his 4th quarter productivity has never been higher!

Nathan Habib - A recent college graduate, Nathan brings a fresh personality on stage with a burst of energy only comparable to the mintiest mouthwash. Oh you want jokes? He’s got those too! Nathan has shared his social observations with a confidently silly attitude at clubs all over California.  His clean, yet edgy humor allows audiences from all demographics to sit back, relax, and piss their pants, from laughter of course.  Any other reason would be weird.
