RONN VIGH, so-sexy-it’s-difficult-to-not-jump-his-bones-while-he’s-on-stage, brings his unique brand of comedy to clubs, colleges, and airport lavatories all over the world. His brash attitude and acerbic wit have earned him a comparison to a young Joan Rivers by SF Weekly. Well, if she were male, gay, and didn’t shoot Botox by the pound. He was featured on NBC’s Last Comic Standing II and in 2005 started comedy night at Harvey’s and currently produces the successful “Harvey’s Funny Tuesdays” weekly comedy show in the Castro District of San Francisco. No stranger to the comedy club and alternative scene, he has hosted and performed at venues such as the San Francisco Punch Lline, Cobb's Comedy Club, Rooster T. Feathers, Palm Springs Pride, Hollywood Improv, 10th Annual Michigan Gay & Lesbian ComedyFest, Rooftop Comedy’s Out Loud Festival, Las Vegas Out Q Festival, Lake Tahoe Gay & Lesbian WinterFest, and the list goes on and on and on—much like when Ronn speaks.

NATASHA MUSE is pretty funny, for a comedian. She began performing in 2002 as "Ginger" at AsiaSF, and made the leap to stand-up comedy in 2008. With a cerebral wit and whimsical wordplay, she's guaranteed to be at least the second-funniest transexual you know. Natasha has been featured at Cobb's Comedy, the SF Punch Line, and the world-famous Purple Onion. She produces and hosts "A Funny Night for Comedy" at the Actors' Theatre and the podcast "Too Soon." She is the winner of the 2010 Battle of the Bay, Miss Toolbox 2011, and the Miss Photogenic trophy in Model Search 2004.

JANINE BRITO started doing standup comedy in St. Louis and has performed at clubs and theaters throughout the US and Hong Kong . A rising star on the San Francisco scene, she is a regular at the Punch Line, winner of the 2009 SF Women's Comedy Competition, and recipient of Rooftop Comedy's 2010 Silver Nail Award. Praised by 7x7 Magazine as "one of SF's more daring voices" and one of "the 7 funniest people in town," she was just named the 2011 "Best Comedian with a Message" by the East Bay Express. Along with fellow bay area comics W. Kamau Bell and Nato Green, Janine is part of Laughter Against the Machine, a grassroots comedy tour to America 's most volatile political hotspots. Her upcoming 2012 festival appearances include Sketchfest in San Francisco , and the Glasgow International Comedy Festival. A sarcastic, snarky smart bomb of comedy funk straight from the 80's, Janine has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle and The SF Weekly called her "a mean lesbian." But she's pretty sure that they meant it in a good way.

Emcee for the evening, SUSAN BLUER is a partner in the law firm of Bluer & Bluer, LLP in San Francisco, a firm she started in 2001 with her cousin Mark. She specializes in employment law on behalf of employees, and also represents various non-profit and small business employers. Susan was born and raised in the Bay Area. She graduated from U.C. Berkeley and received her law degree from Hastings College of the Law in 1986. Susan believes in giving back to her community in as many ways as possible and has been a generous contributor and volunteer on many local, state and national political campaigns. She has served on the BALIF Board since May 2009 as the Chair of the Judiciary Committee.
