Keith Lowell Jensen will headline two sets of standup comedy at Sonoma’s Back Alley Comedy at Murphy’s Irish Pub on Saturday, Oct 26. Shows are set at 7 and 9:30 p.m.
Jensen can be seen on the new season of the History Channel’s “How the States Got Their Shapes.” He previously appeared as a panhandling expert on Spike TV’s “Manswers” and could be heard on the podcast “Doug Loves Movies” alongside Doug Benson, Ngaio Bealum and Rory Scovel. His two hour-long CDs, “To The Moon” and “Cats Made of Rabbits,” are also available on DVD.
Jensen will be joined by comedians Jules Posner and Jesse Hett.
Hett was born in Kansas and currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and has performed at the San Jose Improv, the San Francisco Punchline, Rooster T. Feathers, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, countless bars and restaurants, a school auditorium and a furniture store.
Posner, a San Francisco native, has been described as a comedian who, “puts the ‘b’ in subtle.” He has been featured on Jokes.com’s “No Drink Minimum” and Rooftopcomedy.com’s “Road Trip.” He has headlined shows from New York to Los Angeles as well as at multiple festivals such as SF Sketchfest, the SF Comedy and Burrito Festival and the S.H.I.T.’s and Giggles Festival in Humboldt. He has opened for industry icons such as Maria Bamford, Arj Barker, Chelsea Peretti, Kyle Kinane, Bobcat Goldthwait and Mike Birbiglia just to name a few.
