Hotter Than July Comedy Jam

You may have seen him on TV, in the movies, or on stage - but let's not forget that Donald Lacy is one of the funniest comedians in the country. He was the first runner-up in the "1993 Bay Area Black Comedy Competition." He tours regularly across the US and around the world as a headliner, from Chicago to Kaiserslautern, Germany. He has been seen on BET's "Comic View and on HBO's "Def Comedy Jam." He has two comedy CDs  - “Uncensored” and “Free Speech Costs Plenty.” For his July 28th appearance in Napa, Donald has put together a knockout comedy lineup, inclduing:

Yayne Abeda croppedFlorentina Tanase started performing at The Purple Onion December 2015 and has since performed at Cobb's Comedy in San Francisco, Sacramento Punchline, Poland (yes the country), The World Famous Comedy Store and The Viper Room in Los Angeles. She’s earned a spot on the Road to Funny Co-Finals and a spot at the SHE-DEVIL Comedy Festival. Florentina’s captivating anecdotes about living in rural Romania will leave you wanting to call your mom and tell her, “Thank you for giving us running water.” She likes to think of herself as an elated pessimist. She co-produces a monthly show at Brainwash called Florentina and Alexandria’s High School reunion.

Rudy Ortiz-croppedRudy O can be heard on the morning sports show The Audible on KNBR 1050 weekdays from 6-9 AM.

Valerie Vernale-croppedValerie Vernale is a stand up comic born, raised, and based in San Francisco. She has performed all around the Bay Area, including Punch Line SF, Throckmorton Theatre, and Cobb's. Her comedy revolves around topical issues and trying to look at cliche things from a fresh perspective.

Yayne Abebe is a comedian who makes you sit-up straight in your chair and listen because she's got something to say. Yayne excels in the way she rolls jokes off that edge of comfort and finesses it with a #TellItLikeItIs teflon charm. #ColorHerSmart and powerful! Growing up in the diverse world of Haight Ashbury, she gives us glimpses at different cultures: Ethiopian, American, millennials, and you will belly laugh when she gets rolling on dumb folks -- seriously. 

Sandra Risser-croppedSandra Risser keeps audiences laughing with self-deprecating stories and one-liners about her misspent youth, her young adult antics and her middle aged adventures. As she says “I'm not old, I'm used.” Sandra may not be famous yet but she's featured for comedians who've been on Saturday Night Live, Comedy Central, Letterman etc. She's a headline, a feature and a maintenance woman depending on the comedy venue. Sandra has performed one woman comedy shows in the Edinburgh Scotland, Brighton England, Santa Cruz and Fresno Fringe Festivals.

Lucky Dollaz-croppedLucky Dollaz (aka Jerry Law) is one of the fastest rising comics in the Bay Area. Lucky has opened for Mike Epps, Deon Cole. Bruce Bruce, Luenell, Monique and many others. Born and raised in Oakland, Jerry's engaging personality has made him a Tommy T's favorite.
