PizzaHacker is the HOTTEST comedy show in San Francisco, and that's not because it's the only comedy show above a pizza restuarant. The show is hosted by Ashton Tate (Stay after Class on YouTube) and Joey Avery (SF Sketchfest). They host the best up and coming comics in San Francisco and the show has featured comics from CONAN and Comedy Central, so you never know who'll show up.
FEEL WOODS - (SF Sketchfest - Cobbs Comedy Club - Punch Line)
Feel Woods is a electric ball of comedy energy, not ashamed to admit that he's a stuttering comedian straight out the streets of Oakland, California. Perhaps the only one. His self deprecating stories and tales on growing up in inner city Oakland has earned him a spot as a 'featured performer' at the 2014 SF Sketchfest and a regular at the historic 500 seat Great Star Theater in China Town. He's also opened for legends like Hannibal Buress at the San Jose Improv and Paul Mooney at the Black Repertory Theater in Berkeley 3 times (he gives Paul weed in trade for stage time). This summer you can catch him and his #HellaFunny crew performing/ producing weekly comedy shows all over the SF/ Bay Area!!
Casey Ley’s comedy is silly. And smart. And dirty. And dark. And handsome. It’s a lot like him actually. So it is also self-centered, flakey and relatively promiscuous.
In 2014 he kicked it up a notch and headlined the Rainbow Connection Queer Comedy Tour or as it was described in a slightly homophobic review, "the gaygegaygaygegaygay comedy tour."
Sure, you are right, that is a lot of gay. But don't worry because Casey and his shows have also appeared in national comedy festivals like SFSketchfest, the Moontower Comedy and Arts Festival in Austin, TX, Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR, on the radio on the relatively popular NPR station, and he has shared the stage with comics you know like Hannibal Buress, Doug Benson, Janeane Garofalo, Todd Barry, Mike Birbiglia, Laura Kightlinger and some other people you've heard of if you like comedy and are straight or whatever you want.
Nicole Calasich is a Bolivian-American comedian and producer from SF who has literally never bombed.* Her jokes have been on Comedy Central, her face on ABC for Iliza’s “Forever 31.” Her humor is big words smartcool and her incisive audience rapport is the dumbest. You may have seen her open for the utterly fantastic Dan Cummins, Adam Newman, Ali Wong, or featuring for Iliza Shlesinger, but she is most likely to be seen offering gifts to the great and powerful Xenu.
*she’s been known to lie in bios.
