The SF Sketchfest Dozen: The Next Wave of Stand-Up Comedy Stars
SF Sketchfest presents a pairing from a dozen hand-picked stand-up comedians on the rise: names you might not know now, but will be hearing a lot from soon.

Ahmed Bharoocha is a stand-up comedian, actor, and member of the sketch comedy group, Dead Kevin. Ahmed released his first Comedy Central Half Hour Special in 2016 and performed stand-up on TBS’ “Conan,” Comedy Central’s “Adam Devine’s House Party,” and at Montreal's Just For Laughs Comedy Festival as part of the “New Faces Unrepresented” showcase.

Comedian Sam Jay hails from Boston and the African American lesbian is creating a buzz in the comedy scene with her new, refreshing perspective. Sam Jay is featured on season 3 of Comedy Central’s “The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail”. In 2015, she was named to the Comedy Central Comics to Watch list in which she was invited to perform at the renowned New York Comedy Festival. She has also performed at festivals across the US, including Portland’s Bridgetown Festival, The Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival and Boston’s Women In Comedy Festival. Opening for powerhouse acts like Hannibal Buress and Dave Attell, she has established herself as a rising star. Her fresh, unique and warm approach makes Sam Jay a comedian worth seeing and one you will be talking about long after you do. She currently lives in Los Angeles. $22


Due to a change in her production schedule, Gina Brillon will no longer be appearing.
