The Center for the Arts OnTheGo series brings the Best of the San Francisco Comedy Competition featuring Laurie Kilmartin, Myles Weber and Steph Garcia to the Foothills Event Center for Mother’s Day on Sunday.

Kilmartin has been doing standup since 1987. She has appeared on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Comedy Central. Her Seeso special “45 Jokes About My Dead Dad” made Vulture’s list of Top Ten Comedy Specials of 2016. She’s written two books and is currently a writer for Conan on TBS. She previously wrote for Tough Crowd w/Colin Quinn (Comedy Central) and The Late Late Show with Craig Fergusion (CBS). She has appeared at the Montreal Comedy Festival as a new face and, 12 years later, as a master.

Garcia is best known for her quick wit, ferocious sarcasm and hysterical, yet vulnerable stories of life including marriage, kids and regrets. For the past 15 years, she has entertained thousands by drawing upon experiences from her nights as a single gal to getting married to a U.S. Marine, to having kids.

Weber is a comedian on a mission. He took first place in the 40th Annual San Francisco International Comedy Competition. Weber was the second youngest to win the competition and one of only two comics to ever sweep the whole thing.

He also has fared well in festivals, having been voted “Best of The Fest” at the Burbank and San Luis Obispo Comedy Festivals. Weber has appeared on MTV’s Greatest Party Story Ever and hosted for Portico TV and Popular Science. A writer as well, Weber wrote for and Smosh Pit Weekly on Smosh’s YouTube Channel.

Blending together silly mannerisms, honest material, positive crowd interaction and storytelling, seeing Weber means you will never see the same show twice.
