The Mission Position is a popular independent comedy showcase, hosted by four of San Francisco’s most accomplished comedians – Matt Lieb, Kate Willett, Jessica Sele, & Torio Van Grol. 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.

This Weeks Guests:
Casey Ley’s comedy is silly. And smart. And dirty. And dark. And handsome. It’s a lot like him actually. So it is also self-centered, flakey and relatively promiscuous. The readers of SF Weekly voted him best comic in San Francisco in 2012 (which had nothing to do with his homosexuality), and in 2013 he was runner-up in The Advocate Magazine’s Next Great Queer Comedy competition (which was wholly the result of his homosexuality). Apparently he wasn’t quite gay enough last year. In 2014 he kicked it up a notch and headlined the Rainbow Connection Queer Comedy Tour or as it was described in a slightly homophobic review, “the gaygegaygaygegaygay comedy tour.”
Comedy Central’s, “LIVE AT GOTHAM”
NPR’s, “SNAP JUDGEMENT”
