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.

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.

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.
Described by a college freshman in a student newspaper review as “kind of prepared but unprepared at the same time,” Johan Miranda has performed in SF Sketchfest, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Small Town Comedy Festival, 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival, & North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival. Johan currently resides in Los Angeles where he is a co-producer & regular performer at the Chatterbox Comedy Night, which was recently named by Timeout Los Angeles as one of the “3 unconventional stand-up comedy shows you need to see now.”
Michael Patten’s soft-spoken style allows him to sneak in smart social critique and an often acerbic world view. This relative newcomer to the Northern California comedy scene is quickly making a name for himself.
