This month features:

- Mark Smalls (Savage Henry Comedy Festival, Laff Gang)
And headliner, Torio Van Grol was first discovered by a gentleman naturalist in 1676, causing an uproar among the clergy, who claimed that he was placed on Earth by God as a test of faith. After much careful study, Torio has been widely accepted as real, though some controversy lingers. Many people believe that early humans coexisted peacefully with him, even caring for him and riding on his back as a form of transportation.
But Torio is not strong enough to carry people, instead relying on speed, cunning and a bulletproof eBay rating for survival.
Torio performs regularly at two of San Francisco’s premier comedy showcases. He also produces the popular Back Alley Comedy shows that began in Sonoma. He recently performed in the 2015 SF Sketchfest, as well as the 2014 Santa Cruz Fringe Festival and Sacramento Comedy Fest. In 2013, he finished runner-up in the Rooster T. Feathers comedy competition.
