Born and raised in Oakland, CA, Kirk has had a variety of experiences. Life in the inner city, prep school in the suburbs, college life in the south and even a successful four-year stint in the United States Marine Corps. He blends all of his life experiences together into a storytelling brand of comedy that has been described by some as Bill Cosby with a Richard Pryor twist.
Having already opened for such stars as Paul Mooney, Bobby Slayton, Tommy Davidson and Don "D.C." Curry, Kirk has been labeled one of the Bay Areas fastest rising young stars by his peers. He even gained recognition as one of the top 10 comics in the Bay Area by Karma 777 Film works & Productions.
In addition to Kirk's comical talent, he is also a freelance writer and voice impressionist. He was nominated for Outstanding Voice Performance by the National Academy of Video Game Testers and Reviewers Corporation (N.A.V.G.T.R) for doing the voice of "Toe Jam" in the SEGA game Toe Jam & Earl III: Mission to Earth.

Comedian Tristan Johnson https://www.facebook.com/ComedianTristanJohnson
Comedian Tristan Johnson was raised in Oakland California always had charisma, being quick witted became known as silly. But in 2009 he gave birth to being a comedian. Comedy was life changing and Johnson became smitten with the mic creating his three stage personas: himself; his "silly side," Trissie Tris; and his "thug-silly side," Hoody 2 Shoes. His aggressive style of comedy landed him producing his own show Nutty Mondays, in the heights of Sacramento.
On stage this refreshing comedian Tristan Johnson leaves no room for sensitivity, he even makes a few jokes about himself ; race, religion, stereotypes, relationships and sex are all fair game when he hits the stage. As a Class A truck driver he spent a lot of time on the road thinking of crazy stuff that is relate able to all. His skits can be located on you-tube include: Rent a Nigga & Any Trissie Sunday. Watch out for this comedian currently residing in Los Angeles, he has his mamas hips and his tag lines have a future in comedy.

Reyna was born and raised in Oakland, CA but now resides in LA. She is also pursuing her acting and modeling career while continously growing in her comedic career. This is her FIRST TIME performing in the BAY!!!
Jerrell Parker's motto. At 26, he has been gaining fame through out the Bay Area performing stand-up in Berkeley, Richmond, Fairfield, Hayward, Oakland and his hometown Vallejo, CA. He also performed in Sacramento and at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles.
The first performance Jerrell did, he was 18. It happened at downtown Vallejo's Listen and Be Heard. He recalls the experience as being more difficult than just telling jokes to friends and family. "I was real nervous and stuttered a lot, but got a lot of laughs." He was always the funniest person in class throughout school, yet was told he wouldn't actually be funny on stage. After that first performance he fell in love with it. Proving the doubters wrong has been key in fueling Jerrell to keep perfecting.
Jerrell was born one of seven children in Vallejo, CA. He participated in sports with his brothers, but was always genius when it came to making his teammates and family laugh. Over the course of his life Jerrell has dealt with the loss of a brother, sister, and most recently his mother. Nonetheless, he sees all of it as motivation and has only worked harder to perfect his craft.
Hosting the show is funny man Christopher Riggins!!!
