About the event

The best night out in SLO is here! Professional Standup Comedy with You Had To Be There!

Meet Your Comics For The Night

Headliner Max Eddy -  The Alpha himself, is one the current fastest-rising stand-up comedians in the country! Bay Area native, Max is now touring the country, and on watch lists in the industry and FBI probably. Max has performed at the two biggest, best clubs in the bay, SF Punchline and Cobbs Comedy Club. He is a regular at The Setup, San Francisco's preeminent indie comedy club, where he has opened for the likes of Taylor Tomlinson, Jamie Kennedy and Shane Torres. Max has previously performed at SF Sketchfest, one of the most prestigious comedy fests in the world.

Feature Act Sammy Anzer - Sammy Anzer performs at colleges and clubs all across the country but his first comedic appearance was at JHS 157, where he ruined over 80 class periods of Earth Science and three of his sister’s birthdays. After writing and performing on Kevin Hart’s “You Look Like,” Sammy lost every one of his roast battles for looking like “church camp Drake” and “the most handsome employee at Taco Bell.” Sammy has performed at the High Plains comedy festival, Limestone, and was chosen for “Best of The Fest” at the 10 Thousand Laughs Festival (which are very prestigious if you know comedy festivals). Sammy is growing into the mixed-race comedic voice in America and has proven it by performing alongside DL Hughley, Rojo Perez, Maria Bamford, and Neal Brennan. On Camera, Sammy has starred in comedic commercials for Flag and Anthem Clothing, Chipotle, and Puma. Expect confidence, joy, and thought provocation.

Feature Ernest Romero - Based out of SLO, Ernest is a touring Comedian, performing in multiple states in the country. Owner and producer of You Had To Be There Comedy. Ernest was named Funniest Comedian of the 805, and has performed at such clubs as, The Hollywood Improv, Brea Improv, Alameda Comedy Club and The Comedy Shop New York. He has opened for the likes of Ian Edwards, and Zoltan Kazsas. He has worked with comedians, Steve Furey, Lachlan Patterson, Katherine Blanford, Audrey Stewart, and Nate Craig!

Feature Aidan Candelario - A veteran local comic who you have seen at the SLO Comedy Fest!

Host Caroline Murphy - The Young phenom herself, Caroline Murphy was recently invited back to close out the San Francisco Comedy Festival that she won last year, at Alameda Comedy Club!
