ABOUT YOUR PRODUCERS AND COMICS
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.
CHAD OPITZ: Fresh to the San Francisco Comedy scene, Chad Opitz is a comic whose unique takes on sometimes odd subject matters are making him an oft booked staple at Bay Area clubs and showcases. Chad was the winner of Bay Area legend Jimmy Gunn's "Best Newcomer" award as well as a finalist in the Rooster T. Feathers Competition, 2nd place finalist at the 2016 Sacramento Comedy Competition and 1st place winner of the Walk the Plank comedy competition, beating out 100 comics for the top prize. Veering between one-liners and short story jokes, Opitz' writing is as well-regarded as his character and performance work.
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.
Josh Argyle is standup comic & published writer. A selection for both the Sacramento Comedy Festival & the Ventura Comedy Festival as well as the 10,000 Laughs comedy festival in Minneapolis and the San Diego comedy festival. Josh is a co-producer of the Savage Henry Comedy Festival in Arcata CA and a co-producer of the improv/stand up show “It’s just 2 minutes” in San Francisco. He is the San Francisco Bureau Chief and a contributing writer of the comedy magazine Savage Henry Independent Times which currently can be found from Seattle down to Los Angeles.
Emily Catalano is from Santa Cruz and performs all over the by area. Her comedy addresses a wide variety of life's most enjoyable topics: breakups, failed relationships, and ex-lovers. A finalist in the 2016 Rooster T. Feathers New Talent Competition, she is becoming known in the bay area for her smart joke writing and her veritable dead pan delivery.
