The Comedy Resistance (TCR-CA) at Stagewerks SF w/Caboose Improv, Chad Opitz, Jim Koman and more

It’s almost election day! Do you have pre-election anxiety? Trying to figure out what you can do to make a difference? Then turnout for The Comedy Resistance’s Election Eve GOTV Comedy Variety Show!!!

The Bay Area’s best standup, improv and sketch comedians will distract you from your pre-election anxiety. We’ll also show you how you can use the VoteWithMe app which will tell you which of your friends and family from around the country live in areas with close races and who might need a text or phone call reminder to vote.

Featuring
Caboose Improv

You’ve seen Caboose on Fridays at Endgames Improv’s always-sold-out, “Your Fucked Up Relationship,” San Francisco’s hottest improv show. Improvised scenes inspired by your ridiculous, fucked up relationships. Everyone’s had at least one. You tell us your stories, we show you ours. You laugh, we laugh, and we all hook up at the end. KIDDING! Maybe.

Chad Opitz

Chad Opitz is a comic whose hilarious and unique perspective is making him an oft booked staple at Bay Area clubs and showcases. Veering between one-liners, short story jokes, and sometimes even song, Opitz’ writing is as well-regarded as his character and performance work.

Chad was a featured performer at the 2016, 2017 and 2018 San Francisco Sketchfests. He hosted an episode of “The Guest List” on Audible Channels in 2017. Chad was the winner of Bay Area legend Jimmy Gunn’s “Best Newcomer” award as well as a finalist in the Rooster T. Feathers Competition, semi-finalist in the San Francisco Comedy Competition, 2nd place finalist at the 2016 Sacramento Comedy Competition and 1st place winner of the Walk the Plank comedy competition. He’s opened for Michelle Wolf, Scott Thompson, Gad Elmaleh, Neil Hamburger, Taylor Tomlinson, Jak Knight, Ian Bagg, Brooks Wheelan and many more. He’s been a recently featured guest on the Doug Loves Movies podcast.

Jim Koman

Activist, improvisor and sketch comedian Jim Koman is a member of Crazy Str8s Endgames’ Unofficial Marketing Team that inflicts comedy on a test audience. Jim also performs original sketch comedy at comedy shows around San Francisco such as The Warm Red Variety Show
