Marga Gomez: The SF Bay Guardian, SF Weekly and Bay Area Reporter named Marga Gomez “Best Comedian 2012”. New Year’s Eve is Marga’s favorite holiday because she likes to watch drunken people flirt. Marga was an original member of Culture Clash and currently produces “Comedy Bodega,” a Thursday night comedy showcase in the Mission. She performs comedy and theater all over the country and internationally. Her latest solo play “Not Getting Any Younger” received the SF Chronicle’s highest rating and ran at the SF Marsh for 8 months through 2012. Her comedy has been featured on HBO, LOGO, Comedy Central and PBS. For more about Marga visit www.margagomez.com
Aundre the Wonderwoman set her sights on political humor from the start. A clever and breathtaking satirist, she uses the stage as her bully pulpit, taking on everything from presidential politics to animal lovers. Andre works as an anti-death penalty lawyer by day. Aundre is a comedy voice not to be missed, especially during this historic political election season. Pippi Lovestocking: Comedian and drag queen, Pippi Lovestocking is the underground treasure of Bay Area Comedy. She is six feet of comedy goodness struggling to stay on the high road. Pippi says, “It’s not a relapse it’s a comeback!” Lydia Popovich hosts the monthly showcase “Ladies love The Layover” in Oakland. Her website, Hater Tuesday, gets thousands of weekly visits from around the world.
Eloisa Bravo: is a Venezuelan heavy hitter with a wild streak. Eloisa produces the popular once a month “Train Wreck Cabaret” in the Mission and would make a wonderful co-parent to any dysfunctional household.
