The Mission Position recently celebrated its 4th anniversary and 1 year at our new home in the Mission at The Alamo Drafthouse! This month with local headliners Natasha Muse, Andrew Orolfo, Joey Avery (Seeso, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, SF Sketchfest)!
The Mission Position brings the best comedians to the Alamo Drafthouse theater for a live comedy show that provides club-level talent without a drink minimum. Hosted by two of San Francisco’s most accomplished comedians, Adrian McNair and Irene Tu (featured on Viceland, KQED, Seeso, SF Sketchfest and Bridgetown Comedy Festival). Every month The Mission Position puts together a new lineup of special guests that include the Bay Area’s brightest comics alongside nationally touring headliners from NBC, TBS, E! and Comedy Central.
Natasha Muse is like the C3P0 of San Francisco comedy: a bunch of small bears once mistook her for a golden god but in reality she’s a bumbling robot (as well as a mom, a transsexual, and a firm agnostic). The SF Weekly once declared her a “Comedian to Watch” in 2014, and in 2016 they upgraded her to an “Artist to Watch.” Natasha features at the SF Punchline and Cobb’s Comedy Club, and has worked with such comedy luminaries as Maria Bamford, Roseanne Barr, Janeane Garofalo, Wyatt Cenac, and God. Natasha’s comedy is so good, it’s not even funny.

If life wasn’t hard enough, this college drop out decided it was time to put down the books and pick up a struggle. Being a first generation American to Filipino parents, the idea of stand up as a profession, was met with disdain and heated arguments. But After a few years of hitting stages, Andrew has now become a staple in the San Francisco comedy scene, performing at the local shows and comedy clubs. He has been featured in the SF Sketchfest and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival. Currently, he produces one of the best monthly comedy showcases in the Bay Area. A free comedy showcase inside a fresh and swanky barber shop. His parents are proud now.

Since his arrival he has become a paid regular at every major club in San Francisco and several others around the Bay Area. Joey has appeared on Fox, NBC, and AJ+ as well as in the San Francisco Sketchfest Comedy Festival and the San Diego Sun God Music and Arts Festival.
