Dan St Paul, Joe Nguyen, Natasha Muse, Tina Allen, and Lisa Geduldig
DAN ST PAUL, after a 7-year stint headlining SF clubs in the comedy duo Murphy-St.Paul, launched out on his own with a solo act that landed him in the finals of The SF Comedy Competition. Having grown up in The Mission, Dan moved to LA and appeared on several episodes of An Evening at the Improv, numerous shows on VH-1, MTV, and Comedy Central. He has opened for Jerry Seinfeld, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, and others. A lot of Dan's material comes from being a suburban husband and father.
JOE NGUYEN, growing up in Georgia as the child of a Vietnamese refugee father and a Jewish mother, was destined to be a comedian. After attending Pomona College in Southern California, he moved to San Francisco and began performing stand up comedy. His smart writing, likeable stage presence, and broad range of joke topics make Joe a crowd favorite, appealing to audiences of all backgrounds. Joe is the producer and co-host of Scantily Clad Comedy, a weekly showcase at the Clubhouse in San Francisco every Friday night at 9pm. www.vietjew.com
NATASHA MUSE is pretty funny for a comedian. She started performing over 8 years ago as "Ginger" at AsiaSF. Over the past two years she has moved from lip-synching into stand up comedy, the second biggest transition in her life. Since that time she's begun to become to be known as the second-funniest transsexual you know.
TINA ALLEN's comedy covers a wide array of topics from dating, family, kids, skiing, being a teacher, growing up Catholic in today's world, to getting older. Growing up in an Italian/Irish/Catholic family that migrated to California from New Jersey allowed Tina to develop a strong personality while acquiring a ton of comedic material. Join her as she discusses life as an only child and being a tall female with a deep voice trying to find Mr. Right. She recently opened for Roseanne Barr.
