The Mission’s longest-running comedy show welcomes a stellar group of guest stars this week. Andy Haynes, Ron Funches, and Karl Hess are riding a rocket ship to superstardom, and we’re lucky that they’ve decided to refuel at the Business along the way. We’ve also got Chris Garcia, Alex Koll, and Sean Keane to round out the show, available to you for the pittance of five American dollars.

Andy Haynes is a comedian from Seattle who now makes his home in New York City. He was part of the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal this summer, and last week he made his network televison debut on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.”

Karl Hess is an LA comedian who also performed at the Just For Laughs Festival in July. He’s performed at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival, and hosts the semi-weekly Sunday Sunday Sunday Show in Westwood.

Ron Funches was raised in Chicago, but has found a home in the Pacific Northwest. He’s competed in the Seattle International Comedy Competition, and performed at Bumbershoot and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival.
