about the comics
Born in Boston and raised in San Francisco, EDWIN LI begins his comedic career at the age of sixteen. Performing at various clubs, his love for making others laugh blooms. His perception of the world comes mainly from the influence of his wacky sister and Chinese background. Entertaining others has always been easy for him, now it has become his passion in life. Take him seriously, or not, he will be the funniest guy you?re ever heard.
Image hosted by Photobucket.comNICO SANTOS is a new face in stand-up comedy wowing audiences in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. With only under a year of stand-up under his belt, Nico has become a staple of the local comedy scene. A native of the Philippines, Nico settled down in San Francisco via Oregon where he always thought about doing comedy but never got around to it. When he?s not making people keel over with laughter, Nico works for the wonderful world of Dior, where he helps Paris Hilton wannabes, ladies who lunch and Paris Hilton spend exorbitant amounts of money.

Stereotype? Maybe so ? but his comedy says otherwise. He?s not your ordinary asian either . . . no spelling bees for him. Instead, his distinctive observational style and autobiographical material have helped propel his career far in such a short time.
In the relatively short time BRENT WEINBACH has been performing stand-up comedy in the Bay Area, he has gained a particularly favorable reputation in both the underground and mainstream local comedy scenes. Through a unique and quirky style, Brent combines absurdism, physical humor, and cultural characterizations with an intellectual sophistication. As his cult following continues to develop, Weinbach fans all over the Bay Area and beyond can be seen wearing his own"Weinbach" t-shirt. Originally from Los Angeles, Brent Weinbach received his B.A. from U.C. Berkeley with a major in Film Studies and minor in Music. He works professionally as a comedian, musician, and school teacher.
