Natasha Muse is a comedian, a skeptic, a mom, and at least the second-funniest transsexual you know. Her cerebral writing, whimsical wordplay, and unique perspective on life have earned her the adoration of audiences and the respect of her peers. Natasha performs regularly all over the Bay Area, including Cobb’s Comedy, the SF Punchline, and the Actors’ Theatre, where she produces and hosts “A Funny Night for Comedy” on the second Sunday of every month. Natasha is the winner of the 2010 Battle of the Bay competition, Miss Toolbox 2011, and also took home the Miss Photogenic trophy in Model Search 2004.
Hailing out of Altadena, CA, in 2008 Jabari Davis took the San Francisco Comedy community by storm, with humor that mixes down and dirty street smarts with thought provoking intellect. With a style that interweaves true-life failures backed by undeniable logic, his comedic dialogue transcends not only cultural barriers, but social classes as well.
Jabari has performed in some of the the nations biggest Comedy clubs including The Comedy Store (Hollywood, La Jolla Ca), The Ice House Comedy Club (Pasadena, Ca), San Francisco Punchline, Sacramento Punchline, Cobb’s Comedy Club (San Francisco), Carolines on Broadway (New York City), and Gotham Comedy Club (New York City) to name a few. In 2010 he debuted his one man Solo Performance piece “Felony Swagger With a Degree,” in the San Francisco Theater Festival amid rave reviews. He was invited back to the Festival in 2011 to perform another Solo Performance piece. Both of which were Co-Directed by W. Kamau Bell of FX’s “Totally Biased.” In 2011, 2012, and 2013 Jabari was selected to perform in San Francisco prestigious Comedy Day Festival in Golden Gate Park performing alongside Robin Williams, Diane Amos, and Gina Yashere. Jabari has also opened for Charlie Murphy’s Acid Trip Tour, and was recently selected to perform in the Cape Fear Comedy Festival 2013 in Wilmington, North Carolina. To cap off an amazng run in the Bay Area, Jabari Headlined Yoshis San Francisco in September 2013. A predominately Jazz venue, Jabari was and still is the only local Comedian to ever play the Venue. With less than a decade in the Business, Jabari has quickly established himself as a rising star. With National Opener and Feature credits to his name, it’s only a matter of time before he reaches National Headliner status.
George Chen was a musician, writer, and event organizer before finding a place in standup comedy. The past few years have seen him establishing the beloved weekly showcase Cynic Cave at Lost Weekend Video in San Francisco. The anachronistic video store is also home to the monthly multimedia comedy show Talkies.
In addition to these regular appearances, throughout 2013 George performed at Holy Fuck, SF Sketchfest, Savage Henry Independent Times and Giggles Comedy Festival (Humboldt County), The Business (SF), Writers With Drinks (MakeOutRoom, SF), Marin Headlands Center for the Arts, Tomorrow! with Ron Lynch (LA), The Moth StorySlam (SF), Sure Thing (Austin, TX), and SFMoMA.
Nat Baimel’s comedy has been described as “witty,” “wacky,” and “whimsical.” He’s respected by his peers for his well-crafted jokes, positive demeanor, and for an act that is somehow intelligent, dark, and adorable all at once.
Stepping on stage for the first time at his college’s comedy competition, Nat took 2nd place. Placing second taught him to stay hungry, and hungry he stayed. In the years since, he’s appeared on George Takei’s popular Facebook page, twice on Comedy Time TV, and several times on reddit.com’s front page, where his jokes have received hundreds of thousands of views.
Nat lives in Los Angeles and tours the nation constantly, having performed in over half of the continental U.S. He’s even told jokes in Asia, where he headlined during the 7th Annual Hong Kong International Comedy Festival. On a personal note, he’s very polite, has outstanding hygiene, and is pretty adorable… Yay!
