Purple Onion Presents: Matt Casey

Matt Casey is a stand-up comedian and writer in San Francisco. Matt was raised in New England and is now a programmer in Silicon Valley. It's not as glamorous as it sounds.

Matt was a finalist in the 2011 Battle of the Bay Comedy Competition in San Jose. He doesn't like writing about himself, though that's just what someone who likes writing about himself would say…

Comedy Live SF

With an eclectic cast, Comedy Live SF is the City's premier stand-up and sketch comedy show features topical sketches ranging from local quips to geo-political conflicts. 

The stand-up is sharp, current, witty and calculated. And the venue is, well, pretty shitty. Locals relate to it, tourists are drawn to it, and almost everyone is on the cusp of being offended by it- but realize it's just too funny to be offensive! 

On a steady rotation, we have a Mexican, an attractive blonde, some dark chocolate (85% cocoa), a macchiato brown man, SF's only Indian who doesn't work in tech, and the token white guys. You know this is a killer cast when the White Male is the minority! This is the United Nations of Comedy show casts. Come watch us get un-diplomatic! Tickets are at the unspeakable price of $10!

Tickets are $10. Show begins at 5:00 PM.

Purple Onion Presents: Daymon Ferguson

Daymon Ferguson has been described as "Cute as a button, if the button said Kill." In reality, this loving father and husband is just misunderstood. Born into an entrenched trailer trash traditon he went to law school driving a camero with a gun rack. Law just didn't fit as a career for Daymon, he's a little to attached to ideals like truth and justice to have ever made it as a lawyer (he is also basically, lazy.) Daymon's high energy, sweaty outrage on stage is tempered by his love of the art of stand up comedy and profound appreciation for his audience. Daymon is a regular at clubs all over the country and has been a featured performer in the Laugh Your Ashville Off and Laughing Skull comedy festivals.

Tickets are $15 (includes free drink). Show begins at 7:30 PM. Doors open at 7 PM.

Purple Onion Presents: Dan Linley

Dan Linley is a homosapien but he's so much more. He's also a guy who wears a watch and is extremely good at always gauging what time it is within two minutes. He's an abysmal swimmer but he's made his peace with it and so should you. He likes people who say please and thank you, also, burritos. Mayonnaise can go straight to hell. He's a fan of Doctors Without Borders but on the fence about Doctors Without Pants (see: childhood). If the world were a triangle globes would make better murder weapons.

Purple Onion Presents: Jamarr Johnson

Jamarr Johnson has played major clubs in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston and Canada. He has also performed for countless charitable events and helped to raise money for disaster relief. Jamarr even made a splash at a rare Dave Chappelle performance when Dave got a hold of his business card, read it aloud to the audience and got a huge laugh off Jamarr’s surprising punch line. Jamarr is a fan favorite on military bases not only because he speaks their language and feels their pain but because he keeps it real with out going wrong. Jamarr has made recent appearances in commercials, MTV, ABC’s Katie Show and NBC’s Dr. OZ show. He also writes for BizCastr.tv where he hosts a fitness reality show. Stay tuned for exciting things from this focused and talented performer.

Tickets are $15 (includes free drink). Show begins at 7:30 PM. Doors open at 7 PM.
