Joey Devine is from the San Francisco Bay Area. He is the the head writer for Yahoo.com’s Broken News Daily, and you may recognize him from a McDonald’s commercial that airs on IFC during Portlandia reruns sometimes. If you’ve ever been to the San Francisco Punchline, Cobb’s Comedy Club, or his weekly show “Move Along Nothing To See Here: A Free Comedy Show” at The Night Light in Oakland, you might have seen him do stand up before. He’s pretty good at it or whatever. http://joeydevine.tumblr.com/
Bert DiVietri is an San Francisco comedian from Lansing Michigan. Growing up undiagnosed with ADHD Bert loves to talk about dealing with his disability as an adult. Not a lot of people are open and willing to joke about their life long disabilities but Bert makes sure to deprecate.
Bert was a regular at the world famous Purple Onion, a member of the Young Guns of Comedy, and the co-founder of the comedy hip-hop group Death Ray Astray who recently released two music videos for their most requested songs. Bert DiVietri has been featured in military fundraisers, nerd comedy venues, and hip hop comedy shows all across the USA. If Bert is performing in your club, it’s a surefire sign that you are probably real awesome.
