The Business welcomes two first-time guests to the show, and welcomes two new Businessmen to our regular lineup. Or should we say - BusinessWOMEN. Well, a Businessman and a Businesswoman - Caitlin Gill and Chris Thayer! And our two guests are Clare O’Kane and George Chen.Clare O’Kane is a rising comedian and actress making her way on the scene. She often performs with the infamous Sylvan Collective, and has acted at the Edinburgh Festival. She starred in the film “Bloodrape” as “Evelyn,” and IMDB credits her as a Researcher for “An Audience With Elton John,” a TV special produced when she was eight years old.George Chen is a Bay Area bred writer and musician. His credits for talking at you include Porchlight Storytelling Series and the Living Room Salon at SF MOMA. He organized a comedy show on a bus and in a comic book store. He’s writing this while watching a Species marathon.Chris and Caitlin have performed on The Business many times in the past, and we’re excited to have them on board from now on. Chris has performed at SF Sketchfest and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and produced his own show NERVES! Caitlin founded the Ladies Room comedy showcase, remains the longtime dirty haiku champion of Tourette’s Without Regrets, and has performed at poetry slams and inside boxing rings.They’ve been guests, but come Wednesday, we’ll see how they hold up to the pressure of being a regular. Heavy is the hand that holds the microphone, though light is the finger that administers the Facebook invite. And heavy is the tummy that orders the super burrito from Cancun, available just across the street. 8 PM. Five bucks. No Chris and Alex, but we’ll have memories that will last a lifetime.

11/9. The Business @ Dark Room Theater. 2263 Mission St. SF. $5. 8 PM.  Feat Ivan Hernandez, Colleen Watson, Mike Recine and Erin Lennox, Chris Garcia, Alex Koll, Sean Keane, and Bucky  Sinister. Bring Your Own Burrito!

This week The Business welcomes not one, not two, not three, but FOUR  special guests, effectively doubling the base number of comics  guaranteed by our standard Wednesday fare.  Along with our factory  installed four Businessmen, you will also receive Ivan Hernandez,  Colleen Watson, Mike Recine and Erin Lennox.  It’s like when Oreo took  the work out of assembling two cookies and smartly debuted the now  legendary Double Stuff cookie.  What kind of laughs will you find in our creamy center this week?  Let me pull this sweet baby apart for you… Ivan Hernandez is self described as “nerd gent comic jerk”  That’s  right, no need for punctuation.  When not forcing individual panels of  comic books on the internet’s population for proper acknowledgment of  their radness, Ivan tells jokes all over San Francisco.  I think it’s  his birthday this Wednesday too, so buy him a burrito and wrap it in a  page from a Hellboy novella. Colleen Watson is an idiot,  according to her Twitter bio.  But we know better.  She is also a  regular at Rooster T. Feathers, Colleen the SJ Improv, Punchline, Tacoma  Comedy Underground and Utah’s Wiseguys. She’s opened for Arj Barker,  has been molested by Norm MacDonald, and continues to take the Bay Area  by storm with her biting and bitter comedy. Mike Recine  was  nominated for Time Out New York’s ‘~Joke of the Year’in 2010 and an ECNY  award for ‘~Best Emerging Comic’ . Most recently, he was selected to  perform in the ‘~New Faces Showcase’ at the 2011 Just for Laughs  Festival in Montreal. Mike works really hard on his jokes and on being  likeable. He owns 5 pellet guns and is happy to give you one. Erin Lennox is a nice girl and a writer / comedian based in Brooklyn,  NY.  She is originally from Chapel Hill, NC and has been in exactly 3  bar fights.  She hosts a weekly show at the People’s Improv Theater  called FRESH, which isn’t always.  And a monthly variety show called I  LIKE YOU TOO with her best friends the Bandana Splits.  As  indicated before, your regular Businessmen Bucky, Chris, Alex and Sean  will also be on hand to make sure that all the cookie crumbles  correctly.  And as always we are burrito and liquid fun adjacent, only  five dollars and hecka funny dude forever.

Los Angeles!

We’ve had fun playing in your sandbox this year. However with Santa and the Great Pumpkin and some turkeys coming our way in the next few months, we won’t see you guys again for a while. So our October Business LA show is going to be a big send off for 2011! Bring all your friends and relatives and let’s celebrate every holiday at once!

All the regular Businessmen will be in attendance this time around: Bucky and Sean and Chris and Alex will all be on hand, as well as our special guests Brendon Walsh and Beth Stelling! We’ll have some special surprises and as always the Medically Transported Mission Style Burrito Raffle will reward some lucky audience member with sketchy goodness.

Tickets are $8 online (no service charge!) and $10 at the door. I think you know what to do.
