KALW 91.7FM will be taping a special comedy show for its regular segment FSFSF with comedian Nato Green. FSFSF airs Tuesdays at 4:45 during All Things Considered and spotlights Bay Area comedy. Check it out!

On Monday, local comedian and writer Nato Green will present a showcase of some of his favorite current and former San Francisco comedians at Doc’s Lab in a live taping for FSFSF. Performing will be:
Janine Brito (Totally Biased w/ W. Kamau Bell)
Chris Thayer (The Pete Holmes Show)
David Gborie
Clare O’Kane (VICE tv)
Trevor Hill
Matt Lieb
Kurt Weitzmann
Emily Epstein White

Hosted by Nato Green.

NATO GREEN was summed up more or less accurately by The East Bay Express as, “erudite and acerbic, a San Francisco-raised father, union organizer, gastronome, bibliophile, and political sparkplug.” Nato performs every Saturday at the Cynic Cave. Nato has a regular column in the San Francisco Examiner, and his humor commentaries have appeared in VICE, Truthdig, Huffington Post, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, The Rumpus, and The Bold Italic.

His first comedy album, The Nato Green Party, was released by Rooftop Comedy. Nato has been named San Francisco’s Best Comedian by the SF Weekly, Huffington Post, and CBS. Nato wrote for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on FX and toured nationally with W. Kamau Bell & Janine Brito as Laughter Against the Machine.

“Nato Green is the most dangerous comedian alive.”
–Jeff Chang, author of Who We Be: The Colorization of America
