“Jarrod Harris‘ act is an oddly comfortable mix of trailer-park filth, comic angst and hipster irony. While his style may fit into several categories along the comedy spectrum, his clever writing only fits into one: funny.” Noah Gardenswartz – Creative Loafing.
Jarrod is best known for his former character work on Action Figure Therapy, lending his voice and writing for the Jungle and Snow characters which were featured in LA Weekly’s “Top Comic To Watch in 2012″ as well as the front page of the Huffington Post Comedy section in 2011. Jarrod’s stand-up has been seen on TBS’ Lopez Tonight and Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham. Campus Activities Magazine named him as one of the Hot Comics of 2009 and Top Comics to Watch in 2010. In 2009 Jarrod was final 4 at the San Francisco Comedy Competition and in 2010 was invited back for Detroit Comedy Festival’s “Best of Fest” as well as host of 2010/2011 Laughing Skull Festival.
Most recently Jarrod partnered with comedian and pal Ryan Singer for the making of Organic: A Comedy Tour Documentary which is currently in post production and set to be released Early 2014.
Tess Barker is a Los Angeles based comedian and writer. She performs stand up at clubs and colleges all over the country and throughout Los Angeles, where she has performed at The Comedy Store, Improv, and Comedy Central Stage, as well as on Beer in the Shower, a weekly stand up show she co-produces. She is also one of the creators of ‘Lady to Lady,’ a monthly live talk show based in Los Angeles, that features a number of well established female comedians as guests and contributors. Tess recently wrote the screen adaptation of the best selling novel ‘Sold,’ which is set for production in 2013. She also co-authored ‘Time Between Us,’ an original, two-person musical, which premiered as Backstage’s ‘Critic’s Pick’ in the New York Musical Festival, and is currently running enjoying regional runs nationwide. She also co-wrote and produced ‘Two Drink Minimum,’ an original pilot that was chosen as a finalist in the Las Vegas Film Festival. She is also super into dogs and cheese.
Kristee is a guilty pleasure. You really do not want your friends to know how much you actually enjoy her.
Relatively entertaining, she has been in the San Francisco comedy scene for six years, carving a nice little cave for herself.
She hosted the Ladies’ Room Comedy Open Mic, the city’s only all-female comedy open mic. She has performed at the Punchline, Cobbs, the Purple Onion and anywhere else she can.
Richard Toomer is a hilarious San Francisco-based comedian and writer. He is the host of Storking Comedy, an acclaimed comedy showcase that takes place every Thursday at Oakland’s Stork Club.
