Keane is a comedian and writer who performs at all the finest clubs and colleges in the Bay Area, and some of the mediocre ones, too. His sportswriting appears all over the Internet. He’s a three-time Iron Comic champion, a three-time performer at SF Sketchfest, and won the 2008 Twisted Biscuit competition. He’s contributed to McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, ESPN the Magazine, and the “Fantasia In Best Show Minor” DVD. He is a founder of “The Business,” an acclaimed weekly comedy showcase that was named “Best of SF” in 2012 Rooftop Comedy gave him its Silver Nail Award for emerging comedians, and the San Jose Mercury News named him one of their Top Five Comics To Watch.
Hill is a stand-up comedian who sleeps in San Francisco and is awake in a variety of locations. He is co-creator and host of the critically acclaimed, topic-based comedy show “Hand to Mouth.” He has performed at SF Sketchfest, the Great American Comedy Festival, Sacramento Comedy Festival, Minneapolis’ 10,000 Laughs Fest, as well as in clubs and theaters throughout the United States and England. Hill’s comedy has appeared on KOFY TV and has been featured in <em>The San Francisco Chronicle</em>, <em>SF Weekly</em>, <em>San Francisco Bay Guardian</em> and <em>The Washington Post</em>. His material ranges from political and religious commentary to absurd vignettes about Bolivian Phil Collins fans and bayou-dwelling pornographers. He has been described as inventive, candid, engrossing and infertile.
Small was lucky enough to be born and raised in the beautiful Bay Area. Her formative years were spent squandering aforementioned luck indulging in illicit substances and believing if she watched “The Craft” enough times that she too could acquire otherworldly powers, but alas, no. She always had a penchant for saying inappropriate things, but decided she was sick of offending people on accident and tried stand-up comedy. The result was magical, like a barren woman stumbling upon an abandoned dumpster baby, she had found her home. She had finally found a place to tell all her offensive jokes, as she learned early on that church is not the place. Amen!
