MEET THE COMEDIANS
Brian Copeland is an award-winning actor, comedian, author, playwright, television and radio talk show host based in the San Francisco Bay Area. As a standup comedian, Copeland has opened for such legendary performers as Smokey Robinson, Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, Ray Charles, The Temptations, Natalie Cole, Julio Iglesias, Ringo Starr and Gladys Knight. In 2004, Copeland debuted his first one-man play, Not a Genuine Black Man at the Marsh in San Francisco. This show went on to become the longest-running solo show in San Francisco theatrical history with over 800 performances. In 2006, he published a best-selling book based on Genuine. To date, Copeland has written and performed three subsequent critically acclaimed solo plays including The Waiting Period (2015 Theater Bay Area Award for Outstanding Production of a Solo Play), the hit Christmas show The Jewelry Box and The Scion (PBS affiliate KQED’s Best New Play of 2014). His new play, Grandma & Me: An Ode to Single Parents, debuts in San Francisco in the fall of 2017. In addition to his stage work, Copeland is a fixture in Bay Area broadcasting, where he has hosted programs on just about every television station, including KTVU (a five-year stint as cohost of Mornings on 2), ABC7 (host of the Emmy award-winning 7Live) and KNTV (the hit 2015 late night special Now Brian Copeland). He has also performed on MTV, A&E, NBC, VH1 and Comedy Central.
Hailed by his peers as one of the smartest comedians in the country, Bob Dubac raises the bar of stand-up comedy high above the mediocrity of television. If you are tired of the not-so-special comedy specials you see on cable then don’t miss Bob Dubac. He beats the hornet’s nest of hype and spin using the big stick of knowledge with a voice that sounds like it came from the inside of your own frustrated head. On stage Dubac buckles us up for a fast-paced joy ride over the pot-holed highways of cultural hypocrisy. Riding shotgun with intelligence and absurdity he crashes head first into the barriers of sex, race, religion, politics and the media – all in an effort to expose the idiocracy that surrounds us. For example, “idiocracy” isn’t even a word. How dumb is that? Bob is usually busy performing his award winning solo shows THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? and THE BOOK OF MORON in theaters all over the world. So it’s a rare treat to have him here.

Kirk McHenry (host)
Kirk was born and raised in Oakland, CA and blends all of his experiences together into a story-telling brand of comedy that has been likened to Bill Cosby with a Richard Pryor twist.From entertaining troops overseas to being featured on BET’s ComicView, BET’s One Mic Stand, and Jamie Foxx Laffapalooza, Kirk is well on his way to becoming a household name. Kirk has opened for comedic stars such as Paul Mooney, Bobby Slayton, Gary Owen, Charlie Murphy, Tommy Davidson and Eddie Griffin. We’re thrilled to welcome Kirk back to the Throckmorton with more of his dynamic side-splitting comedy.
