The Business @ Dark Room Theater. 2263 Mission Street. $5. 8 PM. Featuring Chris Garcia, Bucky Sinister, Sean Keane, Alex Koll and guests: Kevin O’Shea and Stefan Stignei

This week the Business welcomes SF’s own Kevin O’Shea, LA’s own Stefan Stignei and welcomes back founding Businessman Alex Koll! 

Alex has been touring this great country of ours, performing his magical stand-up and exploring every diner, drive-in, and Zagat-rated rest stop along the way. He’s back this Wednesday, with laser-like focus, a chip on his shoulder, and a dynamite recipe for chili con carne that will knock your socks off.

Kevin O’Shea is a friend to the Business and a force in the San Francisco comedy scene. He’s performed at Sketchfest and produced such shows as Funny Jerks, Blah! Blah! Blah!, and the short-lived cult sketch favorite, Frown Land. Please enjoy his dark, rough-and-tumble, absurdist comedy - but keep your hands where Kevin can see them, pilgrim.

Stefan Stignei is a comedian from Los Angeles who performs at the Comedy Store, the Hollywood Improv, and many other spots. He’s an expert on video games and a savant at one-liners. And if you have anything disparaging to say about Oregon State University, he will leg wrestle you on the spot.

We’ve also got Bucky, Chris, and Sean on hand to help out. As always, the Dark Room is BYO-Burrito, and Cancun Taqueria remains across the street. Five bucks, 8 PM.

Wednesday Night Comedy @ Masses Sports Bar and Grill. 2721 North Main St. Walnut Creek. 9 PM. 21+. No Cover. Featuring Joe Gorman, Trevor Hill, John Hoogasian and headliner Kris Tinkle. Hosted by Greg Asdourian.

Business @ Dark Room Theater. 2263 Mission Street. $5. 8 PM. Featuring Sean Keane, Bucky Sinister, Chris Garcia, Apprentice- Chris Thayer and guest: Jesse Fernandez.

The Business keeps going strong, with Sean, Chris, Bucky, and interim Businessman Chris Thayer bringing the comedy thunder, and special guest Jesse Fernandez bringing his new short film. I don’t know the title of the new film, but I’m assuming it has to do with high school wrestling, living in Vacaville, and/or animation. Regardless, it qualifies as a Thing He Made. 

Jesse’s films have won countless awards over the years, much as The Business has won countless hearts of audience members over the years. We’ll continue to win - and break - hearts this Wednesday. 8 PM, five bucks, tacos are across the street.
