Guests for the 4/3 show includes:

  • Jesse Hett – Jesse Hett is a comedian and all-around cool guy. Born in Kansas and currently based in Oakland California, he has performed at The San Jose Improv, The San Francisco Punchline, Rooster T. Feathers, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, countless bars and restaurants, a school auditorium, and a furniture store. It is not uncommon for audience members to ask Jesse to be the Godfather of their children after witnessing his smooth comedy stylings. He is a man of peace, despite being a master of all forms of combat.
  • Steve Post – Steve Post is a stand up comic from Somerville, MA. Based in San Francisco, he performs all over the city. Considered to be one of the best up-and-coming comics by himself and close friends, you’re gonna want to keep an eye on him. He’s had conversations with Bill Burr, Bob Saget, and the actor who played Sean on “Boy Meets World,” but has worked with none of them. Steve Post enjoys all forms of comedy, and writing in the third person.
  • Sandra Risser – Through self deprecating stories and one-liners, Sandra builds a unique bond with the audience. She has them rolling in the aisles with stories about her misspent youth, her young adult antics and her middle aged adventures. As she relates tales about her ex-husband and observations about life from an “older woman,” or as she’s quick to point out “I’m not old. I’m used,” audiences know they are hearing a unique comedic talent, someone they will return to see again and again. Sandra’s smart, funny and older than Twinkies. She’s eccentric not crazy, drives in the fast lane and can still bench press 500 grams. She believes in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and clean underwear. Her Motto: If you miss your ex, reload and fire again.
  • Alfonso Portela – Sacramento native, Alfonso Portela, is a nationally recognized barista. Alfonso is also a professional percussionist. Most relevant to this short bio, however, he’s a talented comedian. Much like his taste for playing all genres of music, his comedy too encompasses a variety of styles from short clever jokes to elaborate and animated vignettes. Winner of “Best New Comedian” at the Sacramento Comedy Festival, Alfonso has an inclusive style of comedy that appeals to everyone. Original, creative, and imaginative are the hallmarks of his material. He has become a staple at comedy shows in his area and has also performed at many of Northern California’s premiere comedy clubs. He has a gap in his teeth. Don’t let it weird you out. It looks good.
  • Brian Fields – Brian grew up a hick boy in the southern part of Ohio. He bagged groceries during the summer. He became a professional poker player and made a bunch of money. He has a Ph.D. in Computers. When he decided to take up comedy, there was no doubt he would be successful. Within six months, he was in the finals of the Battle of the Bay Comedy Competition. Brian believes happiness is possible in this world, however ephemeral.
  • Daymon Ferguson – Daymon Ferguson hails from Hell or rather, Chico California, where he was born into a white trash tradition that he’s been trying to escape ever since. Six years of work as a lawyer have taught Daymon to truly despise lawyers. Since making the decision to quit law for comedy, he’s started to feel his soul growing back. It kind of itches.
