Top Bay Area Comedians to Follow on Twitter
San Francisco comedian, blogger, and producer OJ Patterson offers clever quips through his tweets, trying out some one-liners that haven't made it to his stage act yet. He also shares in-the-moment updates of the open mic scene via his Bay Area comedy blog Courting Comedy (a feed you can also follow exclusively: @CourtingComedy).
Jokes about tongue removal are completely tasteless.-- OJPATTERSON (@OJPATTERSON) April 30, 2012

Mike's Hard Lemonade should be frozen. Or in prison. Or watching pornography.-- OJPATTERSON (@OJPATTERSON) May 1, 2012
Comedienne Erikka Innes lives up to her geeky but intriguing handle. She shares frequent, nerdy bits, covering a wide range of targets including local bar culture and obscure historical references.
Erik the Viking has to beat Death at chess to live. For a violent, warlike people, Vikings sure couldn't write drama for shit.-- Erikka Innes (@nerdgirlcomedy) April 30, 2012

My initial reaction to 1st viewing of a penis for sexual purposes: "The design on this thing is WAY LESS intuitive than y'all claim it is."-- Erikka Innes (@nerdgirlcomedy) May 1, 2012
The comedy of Miles K is weird, clever, and intriguing, live as well as in writing. He tweets ideas that you'll read twice, pause, laugh out loud at, then retweet. You can also catch the precursor to this brief format at his blog CleverThingstoSay.com.
Hipsters hated the term before it got big.-- Miles K (@NotMilesK) April 30, 2012
Natasha Muse / @NatashaMuse
On Gilligan's Island they made a radio out of a coconut but I can barely make a joke out of a coconut.-- Miles K (@NotMilesK) April 29, 2012
Natasha Muse is a self-proclaimed "force to be reckoned with on Twitter," and she has earned the descriptor. Dry wit and facetious wordplay work wonders on Twitter, and Natasha Muse kills at these, on stage and off.
These models are wearing the latest fashions like they're going out of style.-- A Funny Girl (@NatashaMuse) April 16, 2012
Mike Spiegelman / @spiegelmania
This story about Jesus coming back from the dead after being crucified has a bunch of holes in it.-- A Funny Girl (@NatashaMuse) April 8, 2012
Mike Spiegelman's typical on-stage awkwardness can't hold him back on Twitter, where words prevail. He is a clever wordsmith, and it's always a treat to see what oddity he's come up with each day.
They can put a man on the moon, but they can't think of another way to start a rhetorical comparative statement.-- Mike Spiegelman (@Spiegelmania) April 29, 2012
Janine Brito / @janinebrito
I'm nostalgic for '90's sit-com That '70's Show, which was about a bunch of kids who watched Happy Days.-- Mike Spiegelman (@Spiegelmania) April 29, 2012
We can't tell whether Janine Brito still considers herself a New Yorker (read: former San Franciscan), but she appears so often around here and still has so many ties to S.F. that we'll still claim her as our own. Get inside Brito's weird head after she leaves the stage to keep up with light Bay Area comedy news as well as in-the-minute musings. Her trademark sarcasm is ever-present and hilarious, the topics varied and surprising but always satisfyingly blithe.
Anyone wanna do a series of dinner get-togethers where we build model popsicle stick mansions over drinks after? This is a serious question.-- Janine Brito (@janinebrito) April 16, 2012
If there's a white supremacist group in SF, they'd better fucking call themselves the Bay Aryans. Otherwise I'll be double disappointed.-- Janine Brito (@janinebrito) April 27, 2012
