Wednesday NIGHT!

Aaaaaand we’re back!

April 16:

Kristee Ono (Cobb’s Comedy Club, SF Punch Line)
Kristee is a guilty pleasure. You really do not want your friends to know how much you actually enjoy her.  Relatively entertaining, she has been in the San Francisco comedy scene for five years, carving a nice little cave for herself.  She hosted the Ladies’ Room Comedy Open Mic, the city’s only all-female comedy open mic. She has performed at the Punchline, Cobbs, the Purple Onion and anywhere else she can.

Andrew Holmgren (SF Weekly’s Best Comics To Watch)
Andrew Holmgren, comedian, is a sharp-shooting merrymaker, hardboiled in the San Francisco Bay, that finds utmost joy in disseminating his humor across the country. One-part noble knave, one-part calming confidence man, and one-part evergreen mocker, Holmgren speaks with frank sarcasm and idyllic crassness. A budding star, Andrew Holmgren has performed at the San Francisco Punch Line, Noise Pop Festival, the International Hemp and Cannabis Festival, San Francisco Indie Fest, San Francisco Comedy Day, and the Sacramento Comedy Festival (earning the Best of Fest award). Also, he has opened for the reputable Will Franken and Moshe Kasher and curates the popular Get Yucked Up comedy showcase under Bay Area comedy outfit, Sylvan Productions, of which he serves as producer/artist. While supremely confident, the jokester remains humble, grinding and mining his craft nightly. Expectations are aptly high for Andrew Holmgren.

Loren Kraut (SF Sketchfest)
Awkwardly hilarious, Loren’s unorthodox style of comedy juxtaposes playfulness with deeply dark humor.  She turns grim subject matter, like depression and suicide, on its ear, presenting the bleakness of mental illness with unexpected wit and levity. Ever the outsider, Loren gives us a glimpse into her weird, silly and often tragic world that, in the end, is surprisingly life affirming.

Matt Louv 
Matt is a comedian, Juggalo scholar, birdwatcher, wild mushroom gatherer, grizzly bear avoider and extremely eligible bachelor. He has been doing comedy for four years and isn’t famous because he would never compromise his artistic vision with success. He runs a weekly comedy show in San Francisco’s Mission District, called The Mission Position, and is generally considered “one of the funny ones” by his comedian peers. He is slowly dying from mushroom poisoning.

Plus Emily Van Dyke (Winner: 2013 Walk the Plank Comedy Competition), Jason Mack and your host: bowtie enthusiast and dapper dresser Justin Alan!

AND there’s a Goldstar deal!

Next Show: April 16

Coming off our anniversary triumph, we’re back for more at Stage Werx on April 16.

So far, we’re ready to announce Emily Van Dyke, a very funny lady who won the prestigious 2013 Walk The Plank Comedy Competition, Kristy Ono, a very funny lady who you may have seen at the SF Punch Line or Cobb’s comedy clubs, and Loren Kraut, a very funny lady with very funny jokes about her obsessive-compulsive disorder and other stuff, who was recently featured on SF Sketch Fest.

No comedy show would be complete without WHITE MALES so we’ll have some of those, too. STAY TUNED!

You can get tickets here.

Tonight! Our Anniversary Show! :’)

Remember a year ago? A new Pope was elected. Hugo Chavez died. Real Live Comedians had its first live comedy show. Barack Obama was President.

But that was last year. Now, a year later, Real Live Comedians celebrates one year of comedy! And we’re bringing back our favorite comedians to celebrate!

Plus show producer Jason Mack, Liz Stone and FREE CUPCAKES!

Yes, free cupcakes will be served, and our father will work late, stumble in late, drunk, and pretend he knew it was our birthday ALL ALONG. He’ll say he’s giving us our “big surprise present” this weekend, and you will all pretend to believe him and that it’s really sweet.

The greatness keeps getting greatnesser.

We added musical comedy act MooreDevine to the bill for Wednesday’s show!

MooreDevine is made up of Bay Area comedians and Sylvan Productions members Andrew Moore and Spencer Devine, and they are “the greatest musical duo to grace the greater Bay Area.” They round out one of our best lineups, with people from television and LA and Venezuela and everything!

February 19 - The Show

Featuring Matt Morales (Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson)

Kelly McCarron (Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, comedy album “I’d Eat Them Both”)
Kelly McCarron might just be the most adorable comedian you’ll ever see. With her delightful demeanor and her biting sense of humor, Kelly charms her audiences while making their bellies ache from laughter. Kelly has a way of bringing all audiences together by taking topics such as obesity, therapy, and singlehood and finding the hilarity in it all that is unique yet somehow relatable to us all.

Jesse Fernandez (Head writer for eBaumsworld; was drunk in Mexico when Jason asked him for credits)
Jesse Fernandez shoots collages of ideas into that ether like shotgun blasts into the air. He rearranges half thoughts and feelings like a 4-dimensional jigsaw puzzle and puts the visual representations into his PowerPoint presentations. Then his boss scolds him for slacking off, and Jesse gets back to work as head writer of

MooreDevine is the greatest musical comedy duo in the greater Bay Area!
