Smart. Dry. Thoughtful. Challenging. Sexy.
These are just a tiny sample of the things Matt Gubser has paid people to say about him. The man seriously has no shame.
With his mellow personality and razor sharp wit, Matt’s comedy relentlessly challenges a spectrum of social conventions including politics, organized religion, issues of all shapes and sizes, and recounts the absurdities of his experiences parenting, dating and aging. Also dick jokes.
Matt has performed at clubs and comedy festivals across the western US, including SF Sketchfest, the Sacramento Comedy Festival, S.H.I.T.S. and Giggles Comedy Festival, & Santa Cruz Fringe Fest. He is part of the Ha Ha Heathens Comedy Tour and co-produces “It’s Just Two Minutes,” a monthly comedy show in San Francisco.
Matt is a Northern California native and currently resides in Oakland. He enjoys sculpting, buying used books he never gets around to reading, and basketball. He has three exasperating daughters. He makes them wear sunscreen and eat too many vegetables.
Dhaya Lakshminarayanan is a stand-up comic, storyteller, and TV host. She is a favorite at corporate events as well as festivals like the Bridgetown Comedy Festival (2013), SF Sketchfest (2013, 2012), the Boston Comedy Festival (2012 semifinalist), and the Women in Comedy Festival (2013). She is the Grand Prize Winner of Comedy Central Asia’s “Ultimate Comedy Challenge” (2013). She was also the Grand Prize Winner of On24′s virtual comedy competition. She is a frequent storyteller on NPR’s “Snap Judgment,” has appeared on PBS’s KQED, and hosted the Emmy-award winning television series “High School Quiz Show” on PBS’s WGBH.
Juan Medina brings a robust 4-years of stand-up performing & producing experience. Venue credits include the world famous San Francisco Punchline, Cobb’s Comedy Club, & The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. Also, he’s been a panelist/
SF Bay Area comedy legend Jimmy Gunn bestowed Chad Opitz with the 2013 “Best Newcomer” Award. This is a fitting tribute to the young comic whose sharp takes on horror movies, GMOs, electronic cigarettes and cheap beer has made Opitz a sought after performer by venue bookers and fans alike. Hailing from the great Northwest, Opitz is now becoming a Bay Area staple.
