About the Guest Comedians
Jon Allen is a physicist turned comedian who’s performed everywhere from SF to New York to Tokyo. He founded and produces Cheaper Than Therapy where Bay Area comedians perform live stand-up comedy every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
Krista Fatka left the circus for stand-up comedy. Oakland-based, she started doing stand-up in 2014. She said that a crappy open mic at a little cafe in Northern California was much more terrifying than any trapeze or acrobatic show she ever did!
