Description

The Other Café Comedy Showcase presents 

An Evening of “Mostly” Political Comedy 

Designated Table and Single seating areas 

First Come First Served Seating for each area 

Concessions inclusing Beer/Wine/Signature Cocktail/ Coffee/Tea available. 

Johnny Steele is a comedian, some-time talk show host, writer, humorist, political satirist and all-around loud mouth commentator. After quitting graduate school in a move his parents named: Operation $40K Down The Drain, Johnny went on to perform at comedy festivals, win comedy competitions and log over 20 national TV appearances. In 1997 he left the comedy scene to host San Francisco’s highly rated Live 105 Morning Radio Show, which The Chronicle called the “best morning chatter show… clean and smart” and from 1999 – 2002 he co-hosted KRON/Bay TV’s The Show. 

Besides performing comedy, Johnny is working on a number of web, radio, and TV projects as well as a humorous solo show about his journey to find peace in a WalMart America gone mad with mindless consumption, endless sprawl, and bone jarring stupidity.

Michael Davis is the original comedian/juggler of the New Vaudeville. For over 25 years he has entertained audiences with his wit and skill. The New York Times said “Mr. Davis is an inspired deadpan comedian. I was as close as I have ever been to rolling in an aisle with laughter. Nothing could top him.” 

Nato Green was summed up more or less accurately by The East Bay Express as, “erudite and acerbic, a San Francisco-raised father, union organizer, gastronome, bibliophile, and political sparkplug.” 

Alex Koll is a self-described “Funnyman and Entertainmenter of variable power and speed.” Alex is also the two-time winner of the San Francisco Regional Air Guitar Championship; No kidding!

Scott Blakeman “One of the the top political comedians working in New York today”, Scott has performed around the world and has been featured on MSNBC’s live coverage of the White House Correspondents Dinner, and is also one of the few liberal pundits to appear weekly on the live webcast Fox News.com Live.
