Born in Utah, based in Seattle, Emmett Montgomery is a storyteller, comedian and artist who first found the stand-up stage in 2004 and has been failing beautiful ever since. Emmett has been involved in a lot of things including critically acclaimed comedy collectives, post apocalyptic variety shows, underground wrestling leagues and family friendly comedy nights in pizza restaurants. Mr. Montgomery has been featured the film “Seattle Komedy Documentary”, the coffee table book “Seattle 100: a portrait of a city” and multiple festivals including Bumbershoot and the Bridgetown Comedy and Sasquatch festivals. In addition to wandering the country telling jokes he currently curates and hosts a love letter to Seattle in the form of variety show/sharing party entitled “Weird and Awesome with Emmett Montgomery” at the beloved Annex Theatre and is a member of the Seattle chapter of the Bushwick Book Club, a collection of musicians and artists that create and perform original works based on literary sources. Emmett lives with his beautiful wife and hideous cat in a refurbished motel built specifically for the 1962 Seattle Worlds Fair and enjoys making puppets.
From his elaborate characters and sketches, to his provocative songs and animation, Drennon has made a name for himself as one of the most innovative minds in today’s comedy scene. His live performances of the Imaginary Radio
Program combine live music and beat-boxing with one-man sketches into a show that the Los Angeles Comedy Bureau writes “not only lives up to its name, but exceeds expectation in what you could possibly think it is.” Drennon was recently featured on Comedy Central’s new show Adam Devine’s House Party, NBC’s Last Call and was a semi finalist on Last Comic Standing. His new animated show The Long Legs can be seen on MTV’s rebirth of Liquid Television in 2013.
He was recently featured in LA Weekly’s Top 10 Comedy Acts to Watch in 2014.
Nicole Calasich is a comedian and writer based out of San Francisco. When she’s not confusing people with her sweet orphan-face and jerk-sarcasm combo, she performs stand-up comedy at the SF Punchline, the San Jose Improv, Rooster T. Feather’s, Cobb’s, and festivals like SF Sketchfest and the Shits & Giggles Festival.
Her comedy takes on hot button issues like: “How great are avocados, you guys? Seriously, so great. Am I right?” and “Remember Living Single?” It gets deep, guys. For real.
Her past sketch work with Sunshine Fortress and the all female group, Boner Patrol, enjoyed admission to SF Sketchfest four years running and quickly garnered “On the Lookout” status from the SF Weekly, respectively.
She’s an absurdist and a lover of pets as long as she doesn’t have to keep them alive. She can’t wait to meet your dog and/or cat.
Jeff Anaya doesn’t so much perform his comedy as live it. Standing at 6 foot, this garish twenty something comes onto the stage with a cherubic grin to deliver a perspective on a world where scraping by is the best option. Jeff has performed at every major venue in the bay area- honing his chops with stories of romantic awkwardness and endearing naivete. Jeff hates writing about himself- but loves talking about him and other things he finds weird on stage. Check him out and delve into a big, bright, beautiful world of silly stupidity.
