W*A*S*H (We're All Stars Here)
A LIVE night of Comedy and Music showcasing Bay Area talent -- 21st century vaudeville meets experimental variety show, every Thursday night at 7:00.
Ronn Vigh, so-sexy-it’s-difficult-to-not-jump-his-bones-while-he’s-on-stage, brings his unique brand of comedy to clubs, colleges, and airport lavatories all over the world. His brash attitude and acerbic wit have earned him a comparison to a young Joan Rivers by SF Weekly.
He was featured on NBC’s Last Comic Standing II and in 2005 started comedy night at Harvey’s and currently produces the successful “Harvey’s Funny Tuesdays” weekly comedy show in the Castro District of San Francisco. No stranger to the comedy club and alternative scene, he has hosted and performed at venues such as the San Francisco Punchline, Palm Springs Pride, 10th Annual Michigan ComedyFest, Rooftop Comedy’s Out Loud Festival, Las Vegas Out Q Festival, Lake Tahoe Gay & Lesbian WinterFest, and the list goes on and on and on—much like when Ronn speaks.
His one man show “98 Pounds of Fury” enjoyed a successful run, he appeared in the Off-Broadway smash hit 10 Naked Men, tours with the show “A Fag, A Hag and A Drag” and has co-hosted live broadcasts such as the San Francisco GLBT Pride Parade for ClearChannel networks in 2008.
He’s played Joan Rivers at Comedy Noir’s Jesus Roast, a gay Elvis Presley in a Vegas.com commercial, and a science geek in a MagRack ad displayed in NYC subways. Needless to say he’s versatile (in many ways).
Ronn loves appearing on radio and television and anywhere he can get paid to talk and give his opinions. He regularly hosts culture and nightlife segments on VidSF.com and has contributed to KOFY-TV, Energy 92.7s Fernando & Greg Show, Shake Radio, Free FM and more. His quirky, quick on his feet personality makes Ronn a one of a kind host who can engage, energize and flirt like no other!
His biggest accomplishment to date: working as a flight attendant and never smothering any of his passengers with a pillow.

The East Bay 3 (W*A*S*H house band)
The gents of the East Bay 3 have mastered telepathy, subliminal body language, and reflex training to sharpen their skills as accompanists. Want them to back you on "Billie Jean," done as a bossa-nova? Done. Want to stop on the chorus of a B-side by the Cure to tell your Robert Smith story? Got it. Want to sing "The Greatest Love of All" over a Sex Pistols riff? Roger that. Each week, new musical guests and audience members throw heavy objects at the EB3, and each week, some blood is left on the stage. The Rev. Gil Gilmartin, a former resident of Brazil, wears his thunderbass high; Kevin Seal, from Griddle and Pandora's music team, experiments on a Fender Rhodes; session drummer and studio wizard Adam White is widely known as The Most Followable Drummer In The Western Hemisphere. The EB3's motto? "The singer is always right."
