Attractive Camp is a stand-up comedy throwdown happening every 4th Sunday of the month. We pit comedians from Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, and Conan against sensational local performers who frequent Cobb's Comedy Club and The Punchline and see whose jabs hit hardest. Hosted by Nicole Calasich, Jesse Hett, and Abhay Nadkarni, Attractive Camp will turn your sleepy Sunday into a jackknife powerbomb of laughs.
Lucky for you the last hurrah, the final countdown - nay - the final throwdown is a beautiful boozefilled blowout with one of the strongest lineups of all time (full bios below).
VIRGINIA JONES: Virginia Jones started doing comedy in Portland in 2006, where she was a bike-riding vegan cliche. She’s gone on to work in Hong Kong, LA, New York, London and Billings, Montana. She appears in Portlandia and has been in the Bridgetown comedy festival, Boston’s Women In Comedy Festival, Flagstaff’s Big Pine, Eugene’s Women’s Comedy Fest and Austin’s Ladies Are Funny Fest. She was recently featured in a Mexican beer ad she is praying no-one will ever see. She was a semifinalist in the San Francisco comedy competition, just released her first record, Gothic American, and her mother is proud of her.

NICOLE CALASICH: Nicole Calasich is a Bolivian-American comedian and generally a winner. Based in San Francisco, she performs regularly at major clubs and intimate rooms, including the SF Punchline, Cobb’s, Lost Weekend Video, the San Jose Improv and Doc’s Lab. Her humor is big words smartcool and her penchant for incisive audience rapport is the dumbest. She’s performed all over the country and opened for hilarious acts like Dan Cummins, Iliza Shlesinger, Myq Kaplan, and Adam Newman. Nicole produces three monthly shows in the Bay Area: Attractive Camp, Brave New Jokes, and Jokelandish. These are top-drawer comedy events, sure, but are also humble offerings to the great and powerful Xenu. Nicole is available for bookings until the Scientologists find her.
LIZ STONE: Liz Stone is an 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 and in small towns throughout America.
ABHAY NADKARNI: Abhay moved from South-India to South Central Los Angeles for grad school. "But Why?" would be an obvious reaction. Maybe he had a death wish or maybe he wanted to see if Training Day was legit or maybe USC was the only school willing to give him an education. Dodging bullets en-route to grad school armed him with plenty of stories and stand up was his only catharsis for combating culture shock. His act is an eclectic mix of his experience as an immigrant in the US. He recently performed at the Ventura and SAC Comedy Festivals 2014. He was also featured in the best of the fest showcase at the Burbank Comedy Festival-2014. in 2015 he was selected to be a part of SF Sketchfest Comedy Festival and the San Diego Comedy Festival.
JESSE HETT: Jesse Hett was born in a town called Newton, Kansas. After that, he learned to walk and talk and ride a bike and do a bunch of other stuff. He also moved to a lot of different places, and now lives in Oakland, California. His comedy has been described as “Really great” by a lot of people and “Not really that great” by fewer people. Jesse performs at clubs and colleges and warehouses and furniture stores and bars all over the place.
