NICOLE CALASICH is a Bolivian-American comedian, producer, and generally a winner. Based in San Francisco, she performs regularly at major clubs and intimate rooms including the SF Punchline, Cobb’s, and Doc’s Lab. Her humor is big words smartcool and her penchant for incisive audience rapport is the dumbest. She performs all over the country and has opened for Dan Cummins, Ali Wong, Adam Newman, and features for Iliza Shlesinger. When her Twitter account is not being featured on Comedy Central, she produces four monthly shows in the Bay Area: Attractive Camp, Brave New Jokes, Jokelandish and Resistance is Futile. These are top-drawer comedy events, sure, but are also humble offerings to the great and powerful Xenu. Nicole is available for bookings until Tom Cruise says otherwise.

EMILY EPSTEIN WHITE: Comedian, storyteller, and writer Emily Epstein White has been trapped in a self-cleaning toilet, has stitches from a treadmill accident, and once hung off the front of a truck like a hood ornament for half an avenue to avoid being run over. She performs all around New York City, the Northeast, San Francisco and the Bay area, and the West Coast, (not to mention a boat in the middle of the Yangtze River in China). She has been featured in many festivals and publications such as the New York Underground Comedy Festival, the 360 Comedy Festival, LAFF in Austin, TX, the She-Devil Comedy Festival, the Boston Globe, gawker.com, and has won and hosted the San Francisco MothSlam.

MICHAEL CELLA is an Iraq war vet turned Prius-driving pacifist that believes in the power of thought-provoking and off-kilter comedy. Mike has enjoyed working with comedic icons including Emo Philips, Brian Posehn, and Tom Segura as a regular at clubs across the country including the Punch Line, Rooster T. Feathers, and Laughs Unlimited. His comedy can be heard on JACK FM and his writing has appeared in LA Review of Books, Eephus Magazine, and Ebaum's World.

SHANTI CHARAN’s bubbly personality and contagious smile lure in audiences and her comedic abilities keep them laughing. Charan was recently named East Bay Express' "Top 5 Comics in the East Bay" and San Francisco Bay Guardian’s “Best Comedian” in their Annual "Best of SF", 2016 edition. SF Weekly says Charan’s writing, “is clever and confident beyond her years.”. Shanti is a Bay Area favorite and a regular at every local club including both San Francisco and Sacramento Punch Line, Cobb's, Rooster T Feathers and The Improv.

NICOLE LOVE’s comedy is sarcastic wit and a delivery that doesn’t back down, all in a deceptively sweet exterior. Based in Oakland, CA, it is her upbringing in the Bay Area that has largely shaped the unique worldview that informs her joke writing. Nicole is a comedian that confronts and engages, pairing a depth of ideas on race, gender, and society, with a ridiculous take on daily life.
