"It’s hard to lose a parent. It’s even harder if you were hoping to lose the other parent first. [beat] If you were my brother, you’d be giving me a standing ovation, ‘Finally somebody said it.’"

— Laurie Kilmartin @ Cynic Cave 2-Year Anniversary/Lost Weekend Video [Paraphrase]

"So, this is what I’m doing instead of spending time with my kids."

— Natasha Muse to a tepid audience @ Cynic Cave 2-Year Anniversary/Lost Weekend Video [Paraphrase]


"I don’t know what’s the big deal about gay marriage. Gay dudes could get married before, they just had to marry ladies… [and] fuck dudes on the side."

Attractive Camp is back Sunday 6/22 with some honest to goodness STAR POWER. From SF’s most esteemed and one of the most long-running comedy shows The Business: comedian/poet/Foucault-Is-My-Homie T-shirt Wanter Mr Bucky Sinister aka Chuck Searcy. From some of LA’s most Central American neighborhoods and Vice Magazine's cream of the surly crop staff: comedian/writer/hermana,Megan Koester. From SF Weekly's most recent readers' poll, 2014's “Best Theater in San Francisco” the San Francisco Neo-Futurists. (<—- 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.
