Samson Koletkar was born in Mumbai and raised Jewish. As a first generation immigrant in America, Samson brings a refreshingly new approach to cerebral, witty, thought-provoking, clean humor with a global perspective. Driven by personal trials and tribulations, his subtle satire addresses religious and political hypocrisies, social issues, and day-to-day absurdities of human nature.

He won the 2010 Asian American Theater Company Comedy Competition, has performed at clubs, colleges and corporations in India, Canada and 12 states in U.S. & has been featured on Asian Jewish Life, Indian Express, NBC, CBS and NPR. (www.mahatma-moses.com)


Edwin Li began working as a comedian at the age of 16, barreling through short open mike sets and hanging out in the wings of San Francisco’s Punch Line Comedy Club, picking the brains of any funnyman who would talk shop. His earnestness and shameless curiosity have made him a favorite with audiences of all persuasions. His rambunctious sets are a portrait of the wild, untamed energy of a Chinese American young man.

Edwin has performed at SF SketchFest, Las Vegas Comedy Festival, Asian Week, and he’s a regular at all the A List clubs in the Bay Area. He has also been featured in the independent films Chinese Connection, Slap Stick and Come Back To Me. (edwinlicomedy.squarespace.com)
