Cameron Vannini is a young up and coming, San Francisco based comedian. His sardonic sense of humor and edgy stories makes his performance a unique experience. Performing all over California, Cameron is a regular at the San Francisco Punchline. He has also performed at Cobb’s Comedy Club, the Purple Onion, the San Jose Improv, Rooster T. Feathers in Sunnyvale, and The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. He has shared the stage with comedians such as Brent Weinbach, Sean Patton and Mike E. Winfield.
Cameron has also performed at SXSW in Austin, Too Much Funstival in Denver, the 2010 San Francisco International Comedy Competition and was a semi-finalist in the 2010 San Jose Improv Comedy Competition.
She knows that she looks like she runs a successful Etsy store and probably knows how to crochet. She’s really sorry she doesn’t do either of those things. She does love to paint and draw goofy cartoons so she’s still got the sense of whimy that her look implies.
She DOES perform all the time and probably wants to be friends with you. She doesn’t like drinking alcohol but she LOVES buffalo wings, so (as you can imagine) she’s a complex lady. She started standup in 2011 and continues to love it more than most things (except buffalo wings). She REALLY wants to do your show, but she’s playing it cool. Why don’t you email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like her to bring joy to your audience.
Aside from performing she was one of the founding members of the End of the World Show which is a standup and sketch show that showcases the people that are basically the funniest around.
She also works at KCRW as a volunteer coordinator, occasional music blogger, and production assistant for the documentary story show UnFictional. Give her a holler if you want to tell a story. She’d like to hear it!
Erin Lennox is a writer / comedian based in Brooklyn, NY. She is originally from Chapel Hill, NC and has been in exactly 3 bar fights. As a stand up Erin has performed at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Women in Comedy Festival, the Cape Fear Comedy Festival, the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival, and at an impromptu roast of her grandfather. She has performed at clubs, colleges, and alternative venues all over the country including New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Boston, Denver, Telluride, Wilmington, Nashville, and Austin.
She is the host of DTF, a bi-monthly comedy show at The Grand Victory Bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. She also writes a lot of the commercials you fast forward through.
Erin studied journalism at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and also drank a lot at football games.
Billy Wayne Davis
Originally from Nashville, TN, he has been touring all over the country for the better part of a decade, winning audiences over with a combination of humor both cutting and absurd that puts him pretty squarely into a league of his own.
He has worked with some of the biggest names in comedy, including Colin Quinn, Lisa Lampanelli, Louis CK and Mitch Hedberg and has toured as the feature act for national headliner Ralphie May. He has performed festivals, comedy clubs and theaters as diverse as Seattle’s Bumbershoot, The Ryman in Nashville, the now defunct alt haven Rififi in New York City, the Comedy Works in Denver and the LA Improv.
Developing a taste for the absurd at an early age, Alex Koll’s comedy has grown organically to reflect a far-reaching creativity that has two sneakers planted firmly on the ground. His act dips and weaves between what’s right in front of us all and unexpected forays into the strange.
Alex has appeared on TBS’s Conan, Comedy Central’s “Live At Gotham,” and performed at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, garnering a “Best of New Faces” nod. He has also performed at the SXSW festival, ComedyFest Vancouver, The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and SF SketchFest. Alex has created award-winning comedic videos for IFC.com and Revision3, and his sketch group Boomtime has been featured on PBS. His debut album titled “Wizard Hello” on Rooftop Comedy’s label is currently available on iTunes. Alex is also the two-time winner of the San Francisco Regional Air Guitar Championship; No kidding.
“As you might expect, given his bizarre online trail, his standup is influenced by the nonsequitur-laden absurdism of Mitch Hedberg and Zach Galifianakis. But what makes
Koll’s act special is how he bridges the gulf between askew alt-comedy and grounded,
observational humor. It’s a rare quality in the alternative-comedy community, where
many are intent on out-quirking one another. Whether going on obscure tangents or
offering up more straightforward observations, Koll’s comic voice is his own.”
