“…the best comedy bargain in SF.” –SF Gate
Named one of the “Top 10 Events in San Francisco” by Time Out World (November 2014)
Winner of “Best Weekly Show” by Courting Comedy
This Weeks Guests:
Comedian Andrew Holmgren embodies a rare combination of humility and good looks rarely seen before on this planet. The laid-back jokester performs with a certain reverence for irreverence and his succinct, clever sense of humor has caused people to call him a smart-ass more times than he cares to remember. Holmgren comes to party, based out of San Francisco, he was named one of 2013’s “comics to watch” by SF Weekly and was named “Best Comedian” in 2014 by the same publication. Andrew produces the popular San Francisco comedy showcase ‘Get Yucked Up’, he performs all over the country and has appeared at SF Sketchfest, Savage Henry Comedy Festival and The Sacramento Comedy Fest, where he was named best visiting comedian. He’s also got great hair.
Scott Capurro was reared in Daly City, California; at age 3, he swam the English Channel. Since 1993, he’s avoided AIDS by telling unsavory jokes in every English speaking country. Scott is trusting and thus surrounded by duplicity, yet he continues challenging himself, because he’s physically challenged and emotionally unstable. Described by San Francisco Weekly (free press, edited by lesbians and designed by trannys with large hands and hidden agendas) as “stand-up in the very best possible sense – deadpan, ever-alert and hilarious”
Scott has appeared in Mrs. Doubtfire, where, effortlessly, he played a homosexual; and Star Wars: Phantom Menace, where, breathlessly, he wore a body stocking. Scott knows David Cameron (wink, wink) and Nelson Mandela. Well, he’s met Nelson once. They’re both vegetarians. Actually, Scott is. Nelson said he was, to impress Scott. Cameron eats anything.
Cameron Vannini is a young, up and coming San Francisco based comedian. His sarcastic sense of humor and hilarious ability to share and examine his real life experiences, makes him a favorite in the bay area by both audiences & fellow comics alike. Having performed all over the country, Cameron is a regular at both the San Francisco Punch Line & Cobb’s Comedy Club. He has also graced the stage at venues such as The Comedy Store & The San Jose Improv.
Cameron has also had the honor of being a selected performer in numerous comedy festivals including the 2013 and 2014 SF Sketchfests, SXSW, The Sacramento Comedy Festival, and The San Francisco International Comedy Competition. He also co-produces a weekly comedy show at The Night Light in Oakland.
