The Mission Position is a popular independent comedy showcase, hosted by four of San Francisco’s most accomplished comedians – Matt Lieb, Kate Willett, Trevor Hill and Jessica Sele. Every Thursday, audiences fill Lost Weekend Video’s famous CineCave comedy den, for a show that provides club-level talent without irritating drink minimums or filler comics. The Mission Position welcomes a new lineup of special guests every week that include the Bay Area’s brightest comics alongside nationally touring headliners from NBC, TBS, E! and Comedy Central.

“The next great San Francisco comedy tradition.” –Courting Comedy
Stroy Moyd is a 27 year old comedian from Oakland, CA. He’s opened for the likes of Dave Chappelle, Tracy Morgan, the Wayans Brothers, Hannibal Burress and more. He is a 3 time winner of the Fresh Faces Comedy Competition at the LaughFactory in Hollywood, CA and can be seen at the SF SketchFest in 2013 and numerous comedy festivals around the country. Stroy runs an independent comedy production company called #HellaFunny where he and fellow comedy comrades produce live comedy shows around the Bay Area. His style of comedy can be described as eccentric, assumption shattering mixed with a hint of story telling.
Caitlin Weierhauser got into stand-up comedy in 2013 at the recommendation of friends and therapists and now she can’t stop… she won’t stop. As a band geek and theater nerd in school, the need for attention and audience-based validation started early and only gets worse with every joke told while amplified. Caitlin won The Moth StorySLAM competition in December, performed for Grrrl Front PDX 2014, is a member of Lez Stand Up and performed with them in Seattle at Gay City recently. Her new show, Comedy Debate Club, at Mississippi Pizza Pub combines her most favorite things; laughing and arguing. Obviously, she co-hosts a podcast called Sincerest Unapologies and talks more about feminism and bigotry than anyone you know. Caitlin also produces a monthly sex positive comedy showcase in Portland called Blow Me!
Casey Ley is a San Francisco-based comedian. He hears this a lot: “Hey, you’re that funny gay comic, aren’t you?” He hopes that, soon, people will recognize him as just a funny black comic. Casey’s been featured in festivals like SXSW, Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR and the Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin, TX. He is the host and creator of the popular San Francisco show “This Feels Wrong” and a weekly comedy game show called “Mayhem Trivia.” His comedy has appeared on NPR and he was voted the Bay Area’s best comic by readers of SF Weekly in 2012.
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!
