Joining forces with famed wizard of the soul, Emmet Montgomery, they intend to treat the audience to a spectacular tour of the imagination. Hosted by the brilliant and vivacious Andy Iwancio.
Jesse Elias is a comedian forged by the infernal flames of San Francisco and quenched in the briny waters of Los Angeles. He draws creative inspiration from music and literature of the 19th century and cartoons and candy of the 1990s. He was recently seen performing his stand-up on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Other credits include Montreal Just for Laughs (New Faces), Bridgetown, Outside Lands, LA Riot, and SF Sketchfest. He has also written for Season 2 and 4 of The Eric Andre Show. Jesse learned everything he knows about being funny by studying the comedies of the ancient masters Plautus and Terrence.
In 2004, Miles K was a high school dropout, living in an Airstream trailer. He is now a full time writer and comedian living in a dream. Miles has been described by the SF Weekly as “ever unpredictable and always hilarious.” He recently performed at SF Sketchfest and The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival and runs the popular Los Angeles showcase “Babe Island.” His written work has been featured on the front pages of VICE, Reddit, College Humor, Uproxx, Yahoo, and MSN. He currently lives in LA and hopes to see you soon.
Emmett Montgomery is a comedian/storyteller who was made in Utah but has lived in Seattle for most of the 21st century and been failing beautifully on and off the stage for over a decade. When he is not wandering the country telling jokes and falling in love with America, he produces local shows that focus on building community, pushing the limits of what it means to be a performer and celebrating the unique beauty of the city he lives in (Weird and Awesome with Emmett Montgomery, The Magic Hat) Emmett was part of the top 100 in NBC’s Last Comic Standing Season 9 (2015). He performs at festivals across the country including the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Sasquatch Music Festival and the Women In Comedy Festival and can be heard on podcasts like Risk!, Put Your Hands Together and Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction and has worked with famouses and brilliants like Maria Bamford, Dave Chappelle and TJ Miller. Mr. Montgomery has a lot of hope in his heart, he also has a lot of nightmares, he writes and tells jokes about both those things.
