Coming to The New Parish, stand-up comedian and award winning film maker Bobcat Goldthwait!

Goldthwait’s career has too many highlights for one bio. He did stand up material as an opening act for Nirvana on what would be their final North American tour. He has made several guest appearances on talk shows as well as comedy programs including The Ben Stiller Show. On May 9, 1994, he made a controversial appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,
where on impulse he set a couch on fire. This incident was then the basis of the plot for his subsequent appearance on The Larry Sanders Show.

One of the most recognizable features of Goldthwait’s performances is his voice. Goldthwait has voiced characters on the television series Capitol Critters, The Moxy & Flea Show, Unhappily Ever After, Hercules and Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. He has also appeared as himself hosting the comedy quiz show Bobcat’s Big Ass Show.

Goldthwait has released two comedy albums: “Meat Bob” (1988) on Chrysalis Records and “I Don’t Mean to Insult You, but You Look Like Bobcat Goldthwait” (2003) on Comedy Central Records. His film Windy City Heat won a Comedia Award for Best Comedy Film at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Film Festival.

The show is presented by The Business, a long running stand up comedy showcase in San Francisco, named Best of The Bay by the SF Weekly in 2012.

Sean Keane- is a regular at the SF Punchline, and performed as part of SF Sketchfest. He's a former editor of UC Berkeley's humor magazine, and has written for McSweeney's and ESPN the Magazine.

Bucky Sinister- describes himself as a misunderstood literary genius, a middle-aged comedian and a reluctant self-help guru. He has written three books of poetry, one of which also contained some short stories. His latest book is Get Up: A 12-step Guide to Recovery for Misfits, Freaks, and Weirdos. Bucky came out with a comedy CD before he ever did a gig at a comedy club.

Nato Green
Nato Green
San Francisco native, who was named The SF Weekly's Best Comedian of 2010 for putting on "legendary" shows that keep audiences "doubled over." He continues the tradition of hard-hitting brainy Jewish comedians like Lenny Bruce, Mort Sahl, and Joe Lieberman. Nato is the creator of Iron Comic, the Iron Chef-spoofing hit comedy game show that packed houses at SF Sketchfest four years in a row and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival 2010 and 2011. The East Bay Express reported that onstage Nato "has a knack for pushing boundaries," the San Francisco Chronicle wrote that Nato "had the hordes howling." Daniel Handler, aka Lemony Snicket said, “Righteous and hilarious, bracing and a hoot, Nato Green is like finding a shot of bourbon at your co-worker's stupid vegan potluck.”
Caitlin Gill

People are talking about Caitlin Gill. Most of what they're saying has to do with how funny she is.

Caitlin has played the top comedy venues in the Bay Area and beyond. She has been a performer in SF Sketchfest since 2007, performed in the Vancouver Global Comedy Fest, was host of the 2009 SF Women's Comedy Competition and The Ladies Room Open Mic and Showcase. Her writing has been featured on datecandy.com, and in a Believer Magazine project for 826LA. She has worked with some of the best talent in the industry, including Robin Williams, Eddie Brill, Robert Hawkins, Will Durst, Laurie Kilmartin, Doug Benson, Arj Barker, Tony Camin, Andy Kindler, Tig Notaro, Jackie Kashian, Chris Porter, Matt Braunger and too many other names to drop here. 7x7 Magazine featured her as one of the 7 Comics Rocking the Local Scene in July 2011. She was the Tourettes Without Regrets 2011 Slam Champion and a competitor at the 2011 National Poetry Slam. She is also deadly in the art of Dirty Haiku.

Her comedy style twists her personal experiences into comedy confessions that will leave you red in the face, probably from laughter.
