BUCKY SINISTER describes himself as a misunderstood literary genius, a middle-aged comedian and a reluctant self-help guru. He has written three books of poetry, one of which also contained some short stories. His latest book is Get Up: A 12-step Guide to Recovery for Misfits, Freaks, and Weirdos. Bucky came out with a comedy CD before he ever did a gig at a comedy club.
NATO GREEN was summed up more or less accurately by The East Bay Express as, “erudite and acerbic, a San Francisco-raised father, union organizer, gastronome, bibliophile, and political sparkplug.” Nato wrote for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on FX. He released his first comedy album, The Nato Green Party, through Rooftop Comedy. His podcast is called The Nato Sessions.
JULES POSNER is like if the cool older kid who used to buy you beer ended up becoming a comedian instead of a meth dealer. Jules mixes laid-back observations, laid-back riffing and laid-back flannel shirts into an act that has won him constant bookings at every major comedy club in the Bay Area. He is one of those comics whose writing and delivery make standup seem like it’s just a funny person talking off the top of their head, and reality isn’t far behind the illusion, his riffing pacing his written material in quality.
NATASHA MUSE is a performer and writer of comedy in San Francisco. She’s also a mom, a skeptic and at least the second-funniest transsexual you know.
DAVID GBORIE is a pretty neat guy. He loves music videos and tall cans. His greatest accomplishment to date is winning a wrestling tournament that included the kid from Mr. Holland’s Opus in 1997. He tells Jokes sometimes.
