Phil Johnson isn't angry. Even when he's crooning horrible thoughts about an ex-girlfriend or calling out your co-workers for what they really are, it's done with warmth and a knowing glance that it's all in good fun. He's neither an insider, nor an outsider, but the guy standing in the doorway watching both groups and laughing at everyone's foibles, including his own.

Kurt Weitzmann is a multi-talented comedian, writer, and film-maker whos never afraid to take on subjects most people wouldnt. Hes taken both Hitler and Jesus to task in mock-celeb filled roast shows. And nobody else would even think to bring up both Carol Channing and drug fiends in the same ten minutes.

Dhaya Lakshminarayanan is fiery yet enjoyable (much like masala). Her commanding 5-foot-tall stage presence, sharply written material, ease with the crowd, and vibrant characters draw in rowdy bar flies and excite sober intellectuals alike. For Dhaya, life is comedy, including her traditional Indian upbringing, nerd-pride, childhood in the Deep South, thoughtfully accessible socio-political commentary, and daily amusements in colorful San Francisco.

Danny Dechi's stand-up comedy has been described as "Woody Allen doing vaudeville". His humor, most often directed at himself, is a quirky combination of clean comedy & a unique #2 pencil musical act.
