Comic to Watch SF Weekly, Punchline Comedy Club
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. I’d buy him a beer if I were you. He’s also got great hair.
SF Weekly Best Racial Humor, SF SketchFest
Named SF Weekly’s Best of Award Winner for “Racial Humor You Don’t Feel Guilty Laughing At” and one of the Bay Area’s “Top 5 Comedians to Watch” by the San Jose Mercury News, Kaseem Bentley is an African American insult comic from San Francisco. Growing up with his ‘hardcore class clown’ father and mom that was like a tough Claire Huxtable, Kaseem developed his no-holds-barred comedic style that made friends and co-workers always laugh. After years of procrastinating, he finally tried stand up in 2006 and has been steadily making a name for himself in the Bay Area. Known as the “The funniest comic at the worst show,” he works at works at the SF Punchline, Cobb’s, countless bars, B rooms and just recently performed at the San Francisco Comedy and Burrito Festival.
