Bill Santiago flies off the handle in this 2008 clip which is still great fun. As a journalist turned comic his material is often topical and as a Puerto Rican American he can get hilariously heated. I get to work with Bill on September 22nd at Yoshi's SF.
Excellent! I get to be the first celeb to pick a video from Modesto's ethnically ambiguous, 6 foot 2, comic powerhouse. I would drop everything to watch Marcella's set. She's a force of nature. Check her out with me and W. Kamau Bell on Wednesday August 11th at the Commonwealth Club.
I really relate to Aparna’s clip for its glorious petty, anti-social and passive-aggressive nature. All her stuff is gutsy, dry and clever. I hope that someday she becomes almost as famous as I am.
Mehran is my second favorite Gay Iranian comic . I wouldn’t have known about him if it wasn’t for Rooftop. Keep them coming Ahmadinejad!
I heard M. Dixon on a podcast once so I checked her out on Rooftop. I'd like to see this bit adapted into a horror movie. Always a sign of good comedy.
Hari is doleful in a comforting way. Watch this clip and be instantly engaged in his winsome world views.
Michele Balan is the comic on my playlist I have worked with most. She was one of the final four on Last Comic Standing 2006. In this clip she reels off her neurotic one-liners while planted on a bar stool as usual. Balan is old school and very cool.
