Modern Comedy: Hosted by Nato Green, Allison Mick and Natasha Muse
Wednesday, November 2, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
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.” His first comedy album, The Nato Green Party, was released by Rooftop Comedy in 2012. Nato has been named San Francisco’s Best Comedian by the SF Weekly, Huffington Post, SFist, and CBS. Nato is the creator of Iron Comic, the Iron Chef-spoofing comedy game show he sometimes co-hosts with Moshe Kasher. Nato has a regular column in the San Francisco Examiner, and his humor commentaries have appeared in VICE, Truthdig, Huffington Post, The San Francisco Bay Guardian, The Rumpus, and The Bold Italic. He also hosts FSFSF, a short spotlight on Bay Area comedy that airs every weekday during NPR’s All Things Considered on 91.7FM KALW. Nato wrote for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on FX.
ALLISON MICK is an Oakland-based comedian and writer originally from Rochester, NY. She draws from her upbringing and personal experiences to address topics like race, gender, and serial killers. She’s performed in festivals in Northern California (SF Sketchfest), New York (Hudson Valley Comedy Fest), and Even Farther Northern California (Savage Henry Festival). In 1997, she was featured in the book Humor Works by Dr. John Morreall, the founder of the International Society for Humor Studies. She has managed to stay very grounded despite this fame.
NATASHA MUSE is like the C3P0 of San Francisco comedy: a bunch of small bears once mistook her for a golden god but in reality she’s a bumbling robot (as well as a mom, a transsexual, and a firm agnostic). Natasha made her TV debut on the show Night Train on the NBC comedy streaming channel Seeso. The SF Weekly declared her a “Comedian to Watch” in 2014, and in 2016 they upgraded her to an “Artist to Watch.” Natasha features at the SF Punchline and Cobb’s Comedy Club, and has worked with such comedy luminaries as Maria Bamford, Roseanne Barr, Janeane Garofalo, Wyatt Cenac, and God. Natasha’s comedy is so good, it’s not even funny.
