No Alex? No Sean? No problem! The Business welcomes two exciting guests from near and far to hold down the fort with Chris and Bucky this week. From Los Angeles, we welcome San Francisco expatriate Greg Edwards, and from just a few blocks away in the Mission, we welcome Paco Romane.

Greg Edwards is a native of Virginia who cut his comedy teeth in the Bay. Now he’s brought his one-liners, handsome good looks, and southern charm to Los Angeles, but makes a triumphant return to the Business this week. Paco Romane is a comedian and actor, a member of the sketch group Killing My Lobster, and the producer of The Romane Event, a monthly comedy showcase at the Make-Out Room.

As always, the show is just five dollars and burrito-eating is tolerated - nay, encouraged!

Wednesday Night Comedy @ Masses Sports Bar and Grill. 2721 North Main St. Walnut Creek. 9 PM. 21+. No Cover. Featuring Headliner Greg Asdourian, Ellery Urquhart, Butch Escobar, Dave DeLuca. Hosted by David Studebaker.
