About the Performers:

 

Trevor Hill

San Francisco-based comedian Trevor Hill is the co-creator and host of the critically acclaimed, topic-based comedy show Hand to Mouth. He has performed at SF Sketchfest, the Great American Comedy Festival, countless clubs throughout the United States and England, and has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle and Washington Post. Trevor has been described as inventive, candid, engrossing and infertile.

 

Kate Willett 

Kate Willett is the co producer of the Comikaze Lounge.  She is a San Francisco based comedian and actress. She’s appeared in SF Sketchfest, in the San Francisco Comedy Competition, and at clubs, theaters and dive bars all over. San Francisco Magazine says she’s a comedian you should know about. As an actress, she has performed throughout the United States with companies such as Shakespeare and Company, Word for Word, Woman’s Will and the Samuel Beckett Theater in Dublin, Ireland. She is the host of a weekly radio show, called The Mission Position on radiovalencia.fm. She’s also the co-producer of the weekly Mission Position show in Lost Weekend Video’s famous Cine Cave, and Comedy at Deluxe

 

Stefani Silverman

Stefani Silverman is also a co producer of the Comikaze Lounge.  She is a San Francisco native dedicated to finding meaning in life through humor. A former attorney, she uses her hard earned critical thinking skills to talk about such complex topics as food, sex and things she sees on Muni.  Mostly observational, increasingly self revelatory, Stefani’s comedy will get you laughing and keep you thinking. She also produces a monthly showcase called Tickled Pink! And Stage Grime, Filthy Comedy at the Rite Spot .

She has performed at Cobb’s with Comedians at Law and on San Francisco’s famous Comedy Day and is a regular at the Sunday New Talent Show case at the SF Punchline.

 

Dan Mires

Dan Mires has established his own brand of lightheartedly offensive Stand-up Comedy. You shouldn’t laugh, but you do. Dan is a hit with crowds of all ages and can adapt his routine to entertain Mr. Clean® or the Dirt Devil™. Either way; your place will look amazing. For example, Dan has worked with “Clean Guys of Comedy” star Dave Coulier and the Pit Bull of Comedy himself; Bobby Slayton. 

 

Kelly Annekan

This Oakland-based funny person and all-around swell gal is best known for her work as managing editor for online humor journal “Hobo Pancakes,” artistic director for feminist sketch troupe Femikaze, and co-host of the internationally popular Downton Abbey podcast “Up Yours, Downstairs!” She produced and hosted the “Bataan death march of open mics” at San Francisco’s infamous Stud Bar from 2009-2011. In her copious free time, Kelly performs standup comedy at clubs and dive bars, including the SF Punchline, Cobb’s, Crackers, and Go Bananas. She has opened for Jim Gaffigan and Anthony Jeselnik at Austin’s Moontower Comedy Festival. www.kellyanneken.com

 

Mike Capozzola

Michael Capozzola is a San Francisco-based comedian and cartoonist.  He’s contributed to Mad Magazine, The San Francisco Chronicle, The New York Times, The Humor Times and National Lampoon.  Each year, Michael produces and hosts the Cartoon Art Museum’s annual “Comics for Comix” comedy fundraiser which he conceived as well. Born and raised in New Rochelle, NY Michael subsisted on comic books and chocolate until he took up comedy and caffeine. He created his own comedy studies major while at Ithaca College.  His cartoons and a clip of his comedy can be seen at www.Capozzola.com

and special guests

 

Duat Mai

Duat Mai is an American stand up comedian.  He got his start in the San Francisco Bay Area performing at open mics and quickly moved up to showcases.  He combines witty and interesting observations with a compelling delivery to hook the audiences from beginning to end.  When people laugh they not only laugh but think, “that is true,” and “I have never looked at it  that way.”

 

His comedy captivates all audiences from all racial background and all age ranges. After seeing one of his performances you will come away with a new way of thinking and start to spout out ideas you never thought was there.

 

Café Royale is a great neighborhood hangout with international flair.  Now with a full bar and comedy friendly renovations.

March 20, 2013 The Comikaze Lounge is excited to have Nato Green top off the night.
     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.” He appears every Wednesday night with Caitlin Gill, Bucky Sinister, Sean Keane, and rotating guests on San Francisco’s longest-running alternative comedy show, The Business at the Dark Room Theatre. Nato wrote for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on FX. He recently released his first comedy album, The Nato Green Party, through Rooftop Comedy.
