Joey Devine is from the San Francisco Bay Area. He is the the head writer for Yahoo.com’s “Broken News Daily,” and you may recognize him from a McDonald’s commercial that airs on IFC during Portlandia reruns sometimes. If you’ve ever been to the San Francisco Punchline, Cobb’s Comedy Club, or his weekly show “Move Along Nothing To See Here: A Free Comedy Show” at The Night Light in Oakland, you might have seen him do stand up before. He’s pretty good at it or whatever.
Sean Keane grew up on the cuddly streets of Pleasant Hill, California, before beginning his comedy career in the even-cuddlier town of Berkeley, where he ran UC Berkeley’s humor magazine, The Heuristic Squelch, and produced a series of comedy shows. He began his standup career in San Francisco years later, and began receiving acclaim for his intelligent writing, autobiographical storytelling, and remarkably pink cheeks.
Sean has appeared at numerous festivals, including SF Sketchfest, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and the Humboldt Comedy Festival. He’s contributed to McSweeney’s Internet Tendency and ESPN the Magazine, and performed at Litquake, the San Francisco Literary Festival. His writing has appeared in the East Bay Express, Deadspin.com, and various sports blogs all over the internet. He’s had the privilege of working with such comedians as Todd Barry, Greg Proops, Dave Attell Tig Notaro, Rory Scovel, TJ Miller, Kyle Kinane, and Kurt Braunohler, among others.
He’s a founding member of The Business, SF’s finest alt-comedy showcase since 2009, which the SF Weekly and SF Magazine have each called “Best of SF.” The San Jose Mercury News called Sean a “Comic To Watch” in 2011, and he’s a three-time champion of the live standup game show Iron Comic.
Caitlin has performed on the Oddball Comedy Tour, the Outside Lands Festival, SF Sketchfest, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Vancouver Global Comedy Fest and in some of the best comedy clubs in the nation. Her writing has been featured in a Believer Magazine project for 826LA. She has worked with some of the best talent in the industry, including Robin Williams, Bobcat Goldthwait, Hannibal Burress, Kyle Kinane, Marc Maron, Eric Andre, Nick Kroll, Todd Barry, Doug Benson, Arj Barker, Tony Camin, Tig Notaro and too many other names to drop here. 7×7 Magazine featured her as one of the 7 Comics Rocking the Local Scene, and she was voted Best Comedian in the East Bay Express “Best Of” Edition in 2013. You can also hear her on podcasts like Put Your Hands Together and Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction
Her comedy style twists her personal experiences into comedy confessions that will leave you red in the face, probably from laughter.
