Amaru is the type of comedian who will say the things you
didn't even know you wanted to say. The audience can be very diverse,
black, white, in between. Amaru is able to connect with everyone in
attendance. It's more like listening to a friend telling you funny and
relevant relevant stories about life than simply listening to a "comedian"
do "stand up." He's edgy without being crass, obviously loves his kids like
crazy, and his smooth baritone delivery makes him easy to listen to.


Clay Newman: This lovable, joke slinging rabble-rouser became a regular feature of the San Francisco comedy scene in early 2012, making people’s sides hurt with tales of life, love, and all that other crap that fills our days up. Before then, Clay studied the theater at SFSU and could be seen filling up ensembles all over the Bay Area. But he eventually decided to give up on acting to follow a much more realistic dream of stand-up comedy (just let him think it's realistic, he's not hurting anybody). These days Clay can be seen all over California, performing at some of the Golden States biggest stages including Cobbs, The Purple Onion, Punchline SF, Comedy Store LA, and the Ventura Harbor Comedy Club. You can follow him on Twitter @TheClayNewman and find him on Facebook for info on future shows.
