Vince Mancini is a central Californian living in San Francisco, a writer, comedian, TV presenter, and the founding editor of FilmDrunk.com. You can also find his work in IFC, Maxim, and the Portland Mercury . With a wealth of relevant work experience, Vince has been previously employed as a barista (that’s Italian for ‘Loser’), a Chinese food chef, a forklift driver, an adult film editor, and a handsome secret agent with a sweet yet masculine scent. One time he went to UC San Diego, and currently, his business card describes him as a ‘Pop and Locksmith’. (On a serious note, he has an MFA in creative writing from Columbia too, in case you want to hire him to write something. The man has integrity, but he’s not allergic to cash money). In 2010, he became a correspondent for IFC’s The Grid, contributing segments covering the world of independent film. Vince has won many awards for his work, including first place at the 6th grade spelling bee and a lollipop from the barber for sitting still.
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.
“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
“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
Cameron Vannini is a young, up and coming San Francisco based comedian. His sarcastic sense of humor and hilarious ability to share and examine his real life experiences, makes him a favorite in the bay area by both audiences & fellow comics alike.
Having performed all over the country, Cameron is a regular at both the San Francisco Punch Line & Cobb’s Comedy Club. He has also graced the stage at venues such as The Comedy Store & The San Jose Improv.
Cameron has also had the honor of being a selected performer in numerous comedy festivals including SF Sketchfest, SXSW, The Sacramento Comedy Festival, and The San Francisco International Comedy Competition. He also co-produces Happy Tears, a monthly comedy show at The Hemlock.
Scott Capurro was reared in Daly City, California; at age 3, he swam the English Channel. Since 1993, he’s avoided AIDS by telling unsavory jokes in every English speaking country. Scott is trusting and thus surrounded by duplicity, yet he continues challenging himself, because he’s physically challenged and emotionally unstable.
Described by San Francisco Weekly (free press, edited by lesbians and designed by trannys with large hands and hidden agendas) as “stand-up in the very best possible sense – deadpan, ever-alert and hilarious”
Scott has appeared in Mrs. Doubtfire, where, effortlessly, he played a homosexual; and Star Wars: Phantom Menace, where, breathlessly, he wore a body stocking.
Scott knows David Cameron (wink, wink) and Nelson Mandela. Well, he’s met Nelson once. They’re both vegetarians. Actually, Scott is. Nelson said he was, to impress Scott. Cameron eats anything.
