Fresh out of college, Bay Area native Bryce Druzin did what most aspiring comedians do: move to Idaho and spend a year telling jokes at open mics in hookah bars for crowds of disgruntled teenagers. Eager to perform in less smoke-filled venues, Bryce returned home, where his fearless jokes on religion, race and politics make him a favorite of most audiences – but have been known to stick in the craw of some. http://brycedruzin.com
Subtle but sharp, laid-back yet engaging, Joe Nguyen is the smart slacker beloved by audiences for his easygoing delivery and good writing. Raised in the state of Georgia by immigrants of Vietnamese and Jewish descent, Joe was destined to become a stand-up comedian. At home in all venues from clubs to cafes, Joe is a regular at the Punch Line and other Bay Area clubs as well as a member of local group Nightlife on Mars. http://vietjew.com
