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:
Irene McGee is the host of No One’s Listening, a podcast about the mass media, currently on The Progressive Radio Network. She came to public attention in 1998 as a cast member of the MTV reality show, “The Real World: Seattle.”
Sean Keane is a comedian and writer who performs at all the finest clubs and colleges in the SF Bay Area, and some of the mediocre ones, too. His sportswriting appears all over the Internet. He’s a three-time Iron Comic champion, a three-time performer at SF Sketchfest, and won the 2008 Twisted Biscuit competition. He’s contributed to McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, ESPN the Magazine, and the “Fantasia In Best Show Minor.”
RACHEL LARK IS A SINGER/SONGWRITER WHO SINGS ABOUT SEX, DRUGS, HEARTBREAK, AND MESSY APARTMENTS. An up-and-coming San Francisco artist with a die-hard cult following, Rachel Lark has quickly become the musical muse of the sex-positive revolution. Her music has been featured on The Savage Lovecast, and she performs at frequent San Francisco counterculture haunts like Bawdy Storytelling and Tourette’s Without Regrets.
Jeff Anaya doesn’t so much perform his comedy as live it. Standing at 6 foot, Jeff has performed at every major venue in the bay area- including Cobb’s, The Punchline, and the Purple Onion. His years in the comedy circuit have honed his chops with stories of romantic awkwardness and endearing naiveté.
