Guests 14: Luna Malbroux and George Chen

Luna Malbroux:  A fixture in the Bay Area comedy scene, Luna crafted Live Sex, a comedy talk-show exploring sex, relationships and everything your mother never let you watch on TV,  as a way to combine her debaucherously charming humor and her life-long love of sexology.  A diversity and inclusion consultant for schools, universities and workplaces, she fights injustice by day and creates it by night performing in comedy clubs and bars throughout California. She's the creator and visionary behind EquiTable, the Comedy Hack Day Grand Prize Winner at SF Sketchfest. She's also an artist in residence at the historic African American Arts and Culture Complex.

George Chen: Once a musician, writer and event organizer George finally found a place in standup comedy. As an upstart producer, Chen put on comedy shows
on a moving bus at Occupy Oakland, at still-life drawing classes, and inside a comic book store. These attempts to put on comedy in unlikely locations lead to the weekly showcase Cynic Cave at Lost Weekend Video in San Francisco and the monthly multimedia show Talkies.

George has performed at SF Sketchfest, Crash Test (with Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer), Put Your Hands Together, Holy Fuck, Marin Headlands Center for the Arts,Contemporary Jewish Museum, andSFMoMA.

George’s team Equipay won the SF Sketchfest 2016 Comedy Hack Day presentation. He had a small part as an INS agent in the short sci-fi film Mindglow and appeared in an episode of HBO’s Looking. He also co-hosts the documentary discussion podcast Sup Doc.
