(<—- can’t sass that. That is LEGIT STREET CREDIBILITY)The tornado of talent doesn’t stop there. Emily Van Dyke, Mike Walz, and Nicole Calasich are bringing the post-Solstice heat while Jesse Hettgently shepherds you through all this ephemeral genius like a fine (as fuck) host should.As always, we are serving free pizza at this SHINDIG. As always it will be a veritable HOOT. Pre-sale Tickets are available now. Don’t be a square: http://attrctvcmp.eventbrite.com/ As siempre, consider taking a moment to check the full bios of our killer lineup : BUCKY SINISTER (in the hot seat) - Bucky Sinister is a poet, self-help author, and a comedian. He’s also published a little journalism, film reviews, and a few short stories. You can also spot him in the forthcoming Willow Creek, a film by Bobcat Goldthwait. Note: he usually sits down to do standup.MEGAN KOESTER - Megan Koester is a writer and comedian (obviously) who resides in Los Angeles (somewhat less obviously). A columnist for VICE, she co-produces Entitlement, a monthly comedy show with other VICE scribes which has had the pleasure to host such notables as Neil Hamburger, Marc Maron, Kyle Kinane, Maria Bamford, Kurt Braunohler, Reggie Watts and Andy Kindler (who she collaborated with on her “How Not to Be a Stand-Up Comedian” article for VICE). She’s performed at SF Sketchfest, the Hollywood Improv, the SF Punchline, Tomorrow!, The Grawlix, Chicago Underground Comedy, and countless other shows across this great land we call America. She has her very own track on the Holy F**k Live Comedy album, which you can listen to on Spotify if you’re so inclined. She USED to be a staple of those Huffington Post “Women You Should Follow on Twitter” lists until she started making a big stink about them being patronizing; she’s also one third of the all-female (sorry) sketch group Blessed. A Witstream contributor, she’s been featured on Splitsider and is finding it very hard to continue writing this bio in the third person. Most importantly, she has the distinction of being the first person to eat a 12” flatbread Veggie Delight Subway sandwich on stage, a fact she’ll take to her cold, lonely grave. You can follow her on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/bornferal.EMILY VAN DYKE - Emily Van Dyke is 30 and still on her mom’s cell phone plan. Originally from Indiana, The Crossroads of America, she has struggled to overcome a monotone voice and nearsightedness to become a comic and educator.MIKE WALZ - IS TOO GOOD FOR A BIONICOLE CALASICH - Nicole Calasich is a prince as well as a comedian and writer based out of San Francisco, she performs stand-up and sketch comedy primarily at the SF Punchline, Lost Weekend, Rooster T. Feather’s, Cobb’s, and festivals like SF Sketchfest and the Shits & Giggles Festival. She’s revived all her critically acclaimed sketch work and absurdist tendencies in Attractive Camp, a comedy smorgasborg she produces at the best underground comedy venue in town: Lost Weekend Video.She also just hopes to hang out with Prince one day.JESSE HETT - Jesse Hett was born in a town called Newton, Kansas. After that, he learned to walk and talk and ride a bike and do a bunch of other stuff. He also moved to a lot of different places, and now lives in Oakland, California. His comedy has been described as “AWESOME OH MAN YOU’RE THE BEST!” by a lot of people and “Not really that great” by fewer people. Jesse performs at clubs and colleges and warehouses and furniture stores and bars all over the place.

[Club Chuckles is sending 2013 (and its 10th year) off with a bona fide champion. If you’re loyal to this site, it’s values, and it’s sentiments, you already love Kyle Kinane. For all his accomplishments and well-crafted, well-recieved, subtle takeover as a symbol (and voice) for the embodiment of “Comedy”, Kyle keeps it ghetto. He’s still for the everyman, still a product of humble hard work, a lyrical lush of charming deprecation. Spread the word, be apart of the Club Chuckles movement, and enjoy the illustrious privilege of San Francisco’s many hidden gems.]
