Mary Van Note
Mary Van Note is a stand-up comedienne of the weird variety. She performs at colleges, clubs and festivals across the country and she is the creator and star of the award winning Independent Film Channel web series The Mary Van Note Show: Gavin Really Wants Me. 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. She also posts regularly on her personal style and comics blog at www.maryvannote.com/blog and has online content at www.maryvannote.com
“A Gracie Allen for the new millennium, Van Note’s comedic styling is truly unique, as she combines elements of raunchy slapstick with charmingly innocent self-deprecation.” – Flypmedia.com
“Kaufman-esque.” – Jesse Thorn of The Sound of Young America
“Van Note’s film shorts reminded us of Andy Samberg’s digital shorts for SNL, but darker. Like all good comedians, she makes us laugh by being brutally honest. She’s crude and vulnerable at the same time. And she’s hella funny.” – SF Weekly
Born in Las Vegas Nevada to a father with a gambling problem and a mother who's a bitch. Jeremiah Loyd; government, college, comic, and lover. He's also a part of the comedy group Up to Know Good.
Ricardo "Richie D" Duran
Local Comedian out of Fresno, California. Comedic styles are very edgy, ironic, witty, rude in the most polite way. Ricardo likes to get as close to crossing the line as far as he can. Always pushing buttons and a Fresno City College student...unfortunately.
Andrew Idell is a 21 year old from Porterville, CA who brings his own style to the stage. He enjoys mixing the dark and the ridiculous while still addressing his unique take on different aspects of society. Every set with this kid is an emotional roller coaster, so be ready for the ride!
Jared is an up and coming comic out of the central valley. In his short time he's already done premiere shows at Thai Palms. The comedy community looks forward to their future with Jared.
Hosted by William Lushbough
William works terrible fast food jobs, does stand up whenever he can, and tries to help his neighbors. He plans on doing this for the rest of his life. He is also part of the comedy group Up to Know Good. Follow his comedic happenings on twitter @lushbough.
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”.
Nick is currently promoting the release of his fourth DJ REAL studio album, Personal Growth.
"...DJ REAL was a very strange, and strangely wonderful combination of lo-fi recording artist and Andy Kaufman comedian..." - SF Weekly
"...Stargu continues to create Real-y funny characters with his quirky dance moves, crazy costumes, rhymes, beats, pre-recorded voice tracks (sometimes the voice of God, sometimes his mom)..." - New Haven Advocate
"...The crowd at a typical DJ REAL show should expect the unexpected and anticipate becoming part of the show themselves!" - WWUH (University of Hartford)
"With the majority of musical comedy that comes across the line every so often, it usually seems to lack just that; musical integrity or well, comedy. In the case of DJ Real's newest release, "Personal Growth," both elements have risen to the occasion." - The Set List (Sacremento Comedy Magazine)
