The Business October 22 2013: The BARTy Hard Edition

It’s back! BART is back in action! And we have a government again, such as it is!! So much to celebrate. Get on a train (wait for one with the new seat covers) and join us for this week’s Business. 

We’ve got some dandy guests. 

Southern bred, but Brooklyn based, the musical comedy duo Reformed Whores have been busy serenading the country with songs about everything from venereal diseases to drunk dialing with sweet harmonies and old-timey wit. Fronted by Marie Cecile Anderson and Katy Frame, these Southern belles are "sweet, they’re adorable and they have an eye for the hilarious. Oh, and they have mouths like sailors — very funny, astute sailors." - Nashville Scene

Casey Ley is a San Francisco-based comedian. He hears this a lot: “Hey, you’re that funny gay comic, aren’t you?” He hopes that, soon, people will recognize him as just a funny black comic. Casey’s been featured in festivals like SXSW, Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR and the Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin, TX. He is the host and creator of the popular San Francisco show “This Feels Wrong” and a weekly comedy game show called “Mayhem Trivia.” His comedy has appeared on NPR and he was voted the Bay Area’s best comic by readers of SF Weekly in 2012.

Ivan Hernandez was born in New Jersey in the eighties and was mostly bored until starting comedy in his late teens. His style is marked mostly by self-deprecation, dryness, and yelling. Favorite topics include comic books, food, women, and any intersections of the three.

Samson Koletkar is world's only Indian Jewish standup comedian. He has performed his cerebral, witty, thought-provoking, clean humor in India, Canada & U.S. and has been featured on NBC, CBS & NPR.

Plus your regulars! ‘Caltrain” Gill and Bucky “MUNIster”.
