Chris Riggins - Sex times a million...

When it comes to being on the forefront of what is hip, fresh and respectable, no place can touch the San Francisco Bay Area. Every corner is exploding with amazing art and the artist themselves all have so much talent that it can be hard to stand out. Chris Riggins has taken the art of stand up comedy and chose to stand out amongst a sea of other talented artists.

From producing unique shows such as the Outdoor Comedy Club, opening for Dave Chappelle his first time on stage, to featuring and headlining at major clubs and colleges throughout the United States, the sky is truly the limit for Chris. While a unique take on growing up in the Bay Area and finding humor in the struggle are the centerpiece of Chris’ act, he is relatable to people from all walks of life.

While many comics can make you laugh, few can make you reflect humorously on life experiences the way that Chris does. The Bay Area produces the greatest artists in the world and Chris solidifies that notion.

Scott Simpson

Scott Simpson once came back to the U.S. from Japan by boat, lying to his girlfriend that it was for the adventure when really it was because he was afraid of flying.

He’s now a full-time comedian and writer who has performed at SF Sketchfest, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and the North American Comedy and Music Festival. He makes jokes on Twitter as @scottsimpson, and his show “You Look Nice Today” has received the Podcast Award for Best Comedy Podcast.

He also has a website (yourmonkeycalled.com), fully loaded with what you would expect to find on a modern website.

James Stephen

Newly arrived Humboldt resident by way of Michigan James Stephen is an eager, up-and-coming Stand Up and natural storyteller.  James will keep you laughing with absurd musings, unapologetic narcissism, and everyday stories about family and on the job experiences. A former substitute teacher and retail associate James is a quick-witted everyman hunting for a smile and cackling laugh. Though he may not be “conventionally” handsome, his mother will always assure him otherwise. He’s her Special Prince.

James is an open mic regular at the Palm Lounge in Eureka and The Jambalaya in Arcata where he brings his brand of humor along with a devilish charm and great hair. Seriously, ask him if you can touch it. It’s what clouds in Heaven are made of and some of you won’t be going, so you might as well get a taste.

Tony Persico

Tony Persico has been called, “an odd guy,” and, “decent,” by some of the most respected comedians on the West Coast.  With an intense personality and sometimes dark perspective, Tony covers everything from religion and politics to the frustrations of driving and being attacked by a public toilet.

Tony performs regularly all over Humboldt County and semi-regularly in the San Francisco Bay Area.  He was a part of the 2013 and 2015 Savage Henry Comedy Festivals and has been a contributor to Savage Henry Independent Times Magazine.

In addition, Tony produces comedy shows in Humboldt County, bringing the best comedians from all over the West Coast and beyond behind the Redwood Curtain to make this place a little funnier. He also produces a monthly stand-up comedy game show called Make Me Laugh!
