Always the class clown (and spending most of his formative years in the principal’s office), Rob Brackenridge was destined to become a comedian. Born and raised in Wisconsin, Rob has been based out of Los Angeles since 1992 and spends most of the year on the road, “bringing the funny” to audiences around the world. He tours regularly for the U.S. troops on the Miller Lite “Lite Laffs” program, and his television credits include Comedy Central’s “Make Me Laugh” and “Stand-Up, Stand-Up”. He is a favorite at the Improv, the Comedy Store, and Catch a Rising Star.
Stuart Thompson is a rising comic in the Bay Area. Currently a student at UC Berkeley, he is the founder of The Alternates Comedy Club, the only stand-up group on campus, a writer for the Heuristic Squelch student satirical magazine, and a quarter-finalist of the 2010 Rooftop National College Comedy Competition. He has performed at historic venues, including Rooster T. Feathers in Sunnyvale; the 142 Throckmorton Theatre in Mill Valley; The Comedy Store in West Hollywood; and The Purple Onion in San Francisco, where he will be headlining on April 30th. Stuart is well known for his intellectual humor and many impersonations. This combination lends forth an barrage of high-brow comedy full of vibrant stories and unforgettable characters.
Mike Spiegelman hosts the weekly Layover Comedy Night in Downtown Oakland, cohosts Bad Movie Night at SF’s Darkroom Theater, and has opened for David Cross, Emo Phillips, Robin Williams, and the late Mitch Hedberg. He’s acted in the SF cult film, “The Snake.” His one-man show “Salad Jokes Live” is based on material from his humor website, LuggageTuesdays.com. By the way, it’s so funny when Mike hosts at the Layover. Comedians go over their time limit all the time there. Maybe cuz their drunk, who gives a shit. Anyway, so they ignore Mike’s light. So Mike goes and stands almost directly infront of the comedian and just glares at them until they walk off. It’s the funniest fuckin’ thing ever. So go and see that.
Ronn Vigh, so-sexy-it’s-difficult-to-not-jump-his-bones-while-he’s-on-stage, brings his unique brand of comedy to clubs, colleges, and airport lavatories all over the world. His brash attitude and acerbic wit have earned him a comparison to a young Joan Rivers by SF Weekly. Well, if she were male, gay, and didn’t shoot Botox by the pound. He was featured on NBC’s Last Comic Standing II and in 2005 founded and still co-produces the successful “Harvey’s Funny Tuesday’s” weekly comedy show at Harvey’s in the Castro District of San Francisco. No stranger to the comedy and alternative scene, he recently hosted Palm Springs Pride, headlined the Lake Tahoe Gay & Lesbian WinterFest, 10th Annual Michigan ComedyFest, and the list goes on and on and on–much like when Ronn speaks.
His one man show, 98 Pounds of Fury, enjoyed a successful run, appeared in the Off-Broadway smash hit 10 Naked Men, recently hosted coverage for the SF GLBT Pride Parade and gained much attention for a controversial off-the-cuff comment about bisexuals. He’s played Joan Rivers at Comedy Noir’s Jesus Roast, a gay Elvis Presley in a Vegas.com commercial, and a science geek in a Magrack ad displayed in NYC subways. Needless to say, he’s versatile (in many ways). He’s been heard on the radio waves and a frequent contributor to shows such as “Fernando & Greg” on Energy 92.7FM, Shake Radio on 960 AM, The Quake and Live 105’s KGAY Weekend in San Francisco. He currently reports, and was featured in, the New York Times for his “Weekly Show” on Vidsf.com. His biggest accomplishment to date: working as a flight attendant and he never smothers any of his passengers with a pillow.
