The Business knows that you are excited about this. In preparation, we think it is absolutely in order that you all tune your internet radios to WFMU and shake your butt off or laugh your face off, depending on what they are serving up at the moment.
This week, The Business welcomes Ken Freedman.
Ken Freedman and his only friend Andy Breckman are the hosts of Seven Second Delay on WFMU, the legendary freeform radio station in Jersey City, New Jersey. For the past twenty years, they've picked a "radio stunt" each week, then tried to execute it in just one hour of live airtime. They've chain-translated a Village Voice S&M personal add through 15 languages, then back into English, written the ultimate New York Times "Metropolitan Diary" column entry, then gotten it published, and failed more times than they can count. Every other week, they bring their special potion of anti-comedy trainwrecks to the UCB Theatre. When they're not on-air, Freedman serves as theStation Manager of WFMU, the longest running and most renowned freeform radio station in the United States.
Oh that’s not all oh no, oh we got Clare O’Kane as well! Oh yeah!
Clare O’Kane is an actress and comedian who currently lives in Oakland, California. She is a part of Sylvan Productions, a group of weirdos who produce wonderful comedy shows all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Clare has performed in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, as well as a few comedy festivals with fun, fake-sounding names like the Shits and Giggles Comedy Festival and the Too Much Funstival. You can also see her in the indie movie Bloodrape as a bass playing vampire from the nineteen nineties!
It would be foolish to miss this, so get there early cause we sell out.
Bring $5. A high five is a sufficient tip.
BYOBurrito make sure the meat was listener supported.

THESE GUYS. Our guests this week are two genuine articles.
It’s Cory Loykasek and Donnie Divanian!
Cory Loykasek is an SF based stand-up comedian using laid back rants to take a high-brow look at low-brow issues. He is a regular on the For The People Comedy Tour and in 2012 performed in SF Sketchfest, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and Outside Lands. Is Cory Funny? A lot of cool people think so. This one guy, Derrick, he was the JV quarterback at his division III high school, went to prom and everything, thinks Cory is ‘pretty fucking good.”
Donnie Divanian will beat you at tennis and then make you laugh like he didn’t just beat you at tennis. He has performed in SF Sketchfest and the SF Fringe Festival (receiving a best of the Fringe award). He is also in the comedy group We Are Nudes. In 2010 they appeared in the NY times.
Your regulars will be there mmmboping as well, Nato “Issac” Green, Sean “Taylor” Keane and Bucky “Zac” Sinister.
Bring your $5 and get there early cause we sell out.

We got our bindles tied to our sticks and we are ready for some rail splitting action! This week’s guests are finer than a pot of Mulligan stew served by a hot lil bo-ette biscuit shooter.
We are tickled to welcome Jeff Seal, Crowned the Hobo Clown King in '86, '87 and '89. He is an accomplished comic and clown, and a real delight.
We are also pleased to have the ferociously funny Casey Ley!
Casey's comedy has been seen in festivals such as SFSketchfest, Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR and the Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin, TX. He is the host and creator of the popular monthly stand-up show "This Feels Wrong" and a weekly comedy game show called "Mayhem Trivia." He's been featured on NPR and was voted the Bay Area's best comic by readers of SF Weekly in 2012
Also, a San Francisco favorite who has appeared on Last Comic Standing, The Late Late Show and in SF Sketchfest, Michael Meehan!
Michael is a self-taught comic, painter and sculptor. His art is forged from salvaged materials and a sense of the absurd.
Plus all your regulars, Bucky “Bindlesticks” Sinister, Nato “Paint Your Wagon” Green, Sean “Stack of Bones” Keane and Caitlin “Gandy Stiff” Gill.
Grab $5 from your poke and get there early, we sell out!
BYOBurrito for your bazoo.

“To know is nothing at all; to imagine is everything- plus RADIO!” Albert Einstein (and The Business).
This week, The Business makes believe with the Imaginary Radio team, Drennon Davis and Nick Stargu!
From his elaborate characters and sketches, to his provocative songs and animation, Drennon has made a name for himself as one of the most innovative minds in today’s comedy scene. His live performances of the Imaginary Radio Program combine live music and beat-boxing with one-man sketches into a show that the Los Angeles Comedy Bureau writes "not only lives up to its name, but exceeds expectation in what you could possibly think it is."
Nick Stargu is DJ REAL, a San Francisco-based alternative musical comedy act. Performing all original songs, complete with costume changes, bad dance moves, and interactive multimedia, DJ REAL’s live act has been likened to the Talking Heads, The Residents, and Steve Martin. With a wide range of influences, DJ REAL’s songs vary from hip-hop, to folk, to the bizarre.
They are not to be missed. NEVER MISS THE BUSINESS.
Be early. We sell out.
Your regulars will also be there, “Make Believe” Sinister, Sean “Dreame” and Caitlin “You can’t tell me I can’t fly now get out of my way I’m jumping!” Gill.
$5. Always cheaper than Iron Man and always in 3D.
BYOBurrito- your imagination needs brain food.
