Like all things in life, lineup is subject to change
Lebanese American, born in Oakland California, Sammy Obeid double majored in Business and Mathematics at UC Berkeley and then turned down a job at Google to be a comedian. He is now the host of 100 Humans on Netflix. He’s also appeared on NBC's Last Comic Standing and America's Got Talent, as well as TBS’s Conan, and is best known for his world record of performing comedy 1,001 nights in a row, a story featured in both Time Magazine and The New York Times. He was recently voted "Fastest Rising Star” by Campus Activities Magazine and has since performed at hundreds of colleges across the US.
A distinct voice in the Bay Area comedy scene, Oakland native Stroy Moyd is a now appearing on STARZ's new series, Blindspotting and went viral with features on ABC, NBC, TechCrunch and Vox for his popular web series "Rideshare The Love." As a stand-up, Stroy has opened for the likes of Dave Chappelle, Tracy Morgan, the Wayans Brothers, Hannibal Burress and more. He is a 3-time winner of the Fresh Faces Comedy Competition at the LaughFactory in Hollywood, CA and has appeared countless times at SF Sketchfest, Punchline, Cobbs and numerous comedy festivals around the country. Stroy is the founder of HellaFunny which produces live comedy shows all around the Bay Area.
Stroy Moyd performs a headlining birthday comedy show on Friday, July 30th at Neck of the Woods, San Francisco.
Berkeley native Chris Riggins has opened for legend Dave Chappelle, Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, Mos Def and Talib Kweli and performed at the Hollywood Laugh Factory, Cobbs Comedy Club, SF Sketchfest and Oracle Arena. He was also the host of Black Laughs Matter.
Chris Riggins’ comedy comes from a very sincere place. A native of Berkeley, California, his comedy comes second to his intellect, and his ability to comment on the world around him.
To see Chris perform is to see a window into the reality of American culture, both comic and tragic.
While Chris has many credits to his name, including opening for legends like Dave Chappelle, his true appeal is in his brutally honest comedy, which will force you to think while laughing.
Allison Hooker is a San Francisco based comedian and writer who regularly performs in the underground scene as well as prominent clubs such as Punchline and Cobb’s and has been a featured comic at SF Sketchfest three times. She is a member of HellaFunny crew, produces and runs multiple weekly shows in San Francisco, is the winner of the Heavy Weight Comedy Competition at Sacramento Punchline and once opened for a guy who once opened for Dave Chappelle.
