This month’s Guests:
Headliner: Brad Wenzel (CONAN, JFL Montreal)
Brad Wenzel is most known for his offbeat, one-liner comedy. He is a professional comedian so don’t be thrown by his youth and unassuming presence on stage. Described as “the tin-can-kicker of comedy” Brad will surely win you over with his dry delivery and a barrage of clever jokes. His act jumps back and fourth between everyday observations and surrealism. By drawing material from both his life and his imagination, he comes off as a relatable guy sharing some weird thoughts.
KnightArts.com described his act as, “not so much clean in content as very wholesome in its delivery.” Currently based out of Los Angeles, Brad began doing stand up in Michigan at the age of 17. He has accomplished a lot since then. Highlights include, being a “new face” at the prestigious, 2014 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, winning the 2015 Great American Comedy Festival (held in honor of Johnny Carson), and making his television debut on CONAN in 2016 followed by a return appearance in 2017. Brad has opened for: Brian Posehn, Kathleen Madigan, Gilbert Gottfried, Pete Holmes, Louie Anderson, Jerrod Carmichael, Todd Barry, and Patton Oswalt. In addition to working with these acts, Brad tours comedy clubs around the country and has appeared at prominent showcases including Meltdown in Los Angeles, Knitting Factory in New York, and Comedians You Should Know in Chicago.
Featuring: Joey Avery (SF Sketchfest, SF Punch Line)
After starting his career in Cape Town, South Africa Joey Avery received the Jimmy Gunn award for Best Newcomer to the Bay Area comedy scene in 2014, and landed a top 10 video on Reddit. Since his arrival he has become a paid regular at every major club in San Francisco and several others around the Bay Area. Joey was just listed as an SF Chronicle Bay Area Comic to catch, and 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.
