Michael Patten's soft-spoken style allows him to sneak in smart social critique and an often acerbic world view. This relative newcomer to the Northern California comedy scene is quickly making a name for himself.

Erin Loftus is a San Francisco local. She performs locally with the Sketch Group Femikaze. Erin has performed standup all over the US. She Is stoked to be in the inaugural Hella Gay Festival. She can also be seen on Episodes of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, I Almost Got Away with It, and her podcast *This Movie*.

Victor Perez got his start in comedy by quitting his job and getting one at a comedy club - as a dish washer. Going from broke as a joke to broke WITH a joke, it ended up being one of the best decisions he ever made in his life, as he has since gone on to perform with such talents as Sinbad, Doug Stanhope, and Tom Segura. Vic's mix of self deprecation and observation has him on track to becoming a San Francisco Bay Area favorite.

Jon Gomora is a Sacramento based comedian who started performing stand up at seventeen years old. Since starting stand up he has performed at the Sacramento Punch Line, the Sacramento Comedy Festival and won the "Last West Sacramento Comic Standing Amateur Competition".

Clay Newman is a weed smoking rabble rouser that entertains audiences across the country with his tales of life, love, and all that other crap. Catch him at The Comedy Jam every Thursday at Milk Bar in SF.

Irene Tu is a stand-up comic, writer, and performer from Chicago, now also living in San Francisco. Some have described her as “sarcastic” but she just tells it like it is. She has been in SF Sketchfest, Limestone Comedy Festival, Cape Fear Comedy Festival, She-Devil Comedy Festival, Chicago Women’s Funny Festival, and was a finalist in Rooftop Comedy’s National College Comedy Competition. You can see her perform all around Chicago and the Bay Area.

Sampson McCormick is a stand up comedian, writer, and activist. He's been performing and touring around the world for over a decade, using comedy to bring laughter as well as confront homophobia in churches, colleges and society. He's an author of two books, has recorded three live comedy albums and has worked with acts such as Whoopi Goldberg, RuPaul & Paul Mooney

Jesus Fuentes was a featured for SF's Queer Open Mic and Tourettes Without Regrets show in Oakland, has been in True Hustle Entertainment's comedy showcases. His hosting credits include the Hella Gay Comedy Show's Sausage Fest and, most recently, the Drag Comedy Night, the Peace, Earthlings show (with Roman Rimer, and Blythe Baldwin) at Mutiny Radio in SF and co-hosting the Smack Dab Open Mic at Magnet in May.
