SF Weekly March 12, 2014: The Undergroundlings: Bitch and Tell Heralds a Comeback for Highbrow Comic Variety Shows by feature writer Lily Janiak: "A variety show could hardly be truer to the genre than Bitch and Tell...And all are comedians - in their own ways. Yet these acts are not your typical comedy club routines... The comedians, broadly defined, in Bitch and Tell specialize in thoughtful, observational humor, and they also play with the form of comedy in exciting ways."

Pearl Marill wins awards in the SF dance world and recently a cash prize on ABC Family's "Dancing Fools." Her company Modern on Command performs excerpts from Some Bodies Confessional which premiered at ODC Theater as part of the Music Moves Festival. The dancers collect anonymous audience confessions and thread them into their hilarious dance theater incorporating improvisation with choreography and fantastic large costumes.


Bob McIntyre is torn between being a waiter and a comedian. He is really good at both jobs. After 34 years working in 24-hour diners, TGI Fridays and sports bars, he is busy writing a one man show. Please Wait to Be Seated started out as a fun, lighthearted romp about the food service industry, but has turned into a bigger-than-waiting-on-tables memoir that begs the question, "Did I fuck it all up?"


Rosie Fry and Chris Jones are happy to return to their native Bay Area after two years studying acting and working on their indie film projects in Los Angeles. To Live and Hate in LA is their newest parody of LA culture.


Jamie Coventry and Natasha Kaluza are a team who perform regularly in all sorts of venues and situations, most recently this summer with Circus Bella and in Sweet Can Productions "My Life with Hafiz" at Dance Mission. They won Best Comedy/Clown Act in the American Circus Festival two years in a row, and Best Duo in the Picklewater Free Circus Festival.
