Julia's never bought a baby before. OK, she's adopting, but the agency makes her feel like she's buying in the new comedy Children are Forever (All Sales are Final!). Just five days after signing the (non-refundable) contract, Julia and her partner Amy are chosen by a birth mother to raise her baby daughter. That is, until it all falls apart. While this play deals with some heavy topics, writer and star Julia Jackson -- a semifinalist at the San Francisco International Comedy Competition -- keeps the laughs coming as the drama increases.

Lovely little comedy effort, with the men focusing on their lives, stories from history. Therefore it seemed more heartfelt, with more sympathy from the audience, which, unfortunately, was only 12 people. We were closer, sort of all on the same level.
Kevin Munroe: A comedian from Trinidad stranded in San Francisco, Kevin Munroe has been described as a "clever comic", known for producing quotable material that routinely flips conventions of American culture on their collective heads. He was 2009 Runner Up in the Rooster T. Feathers Comedy Competition and Winner of the 2010 Walk The Plank Comedy Competition.
Samson Koletkar: Samson was born and raised in Mumbai and moved to San Francisco to work in IT. From his beginnings as an immigrant Indian Jewish guy with zero experience with American standup, Samson brings a refreshingly new approach to cerebral, witty, thought-provoking clean humour with a global perspective. Driven by personal trials and tribulations, his socially aware comedy highlights religious, political, and social hypocrisies and issues, and day-to-day absurdities of human nature.
He is the creator of Comedy Off Broadway Oakland, The Minorities Stand Up and Mahatma Moses Comedy Tour, and is a featured performer on Funatical Comedy Tour and Make Chai Not War. He won the 2010 Asian American Theater Company Comedy Competition, has performed in India, Canada and all over U.S. & featured on Asian Jewish Life Magazine, Indian Express, CBS & NPR.
Edwin Li: Edwin Li began working as a comedian at the age of 16. His earnestness and shameless curiosity have made him a favorite with audiences of all persuasions. His rambunctious sets are a portrait of the wild, untamed energy of a Chinese American young man. Edwin has performed at SF SketchFest, Las Vegas Comedy Festival, Asian Week, and has been featured in the independent films Chinese Connection, Slap Stick and Come Back To Me.
Natasha Muse: Natasha's cerebral wit has gotten her in the door at Cobb's Comedy Club, the San Francisco Punchline, Purple Onion and all the best comedy clubs and shows in the Bay Area. A Battle of the Bay Comedy Competition winner, she is 2012 SF Weekly's Best Tranny Comedienne.
