Starting his career in the vibrant San Francisco comedy scene, San Francisco Weekly described Grant as “a hilariously sharp observer, not one of those tired white-guy bellyachers.” A former collegiate soccer player, Grant decided to pursue a career on stage instead of on the field. In 2014, he won the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival beating out comedians from all over the country, and he has performed in a number of other prestigious comedy festivals including the Great American Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and more.
He has appeared on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show and is heard regularly on Sirius/XM satellite radio. As well as being a contributing writer for the Huffington Post, the short film he wrote and starred in, Interview Date, was eligible for a short film Academy Award in 2013. Funny or Die, MSN, Huffington Post, and others are among the sites that have featured Grant’s sketch videos on their home pages.
Bartnick moved to San Francisco and began his career as a stand-up comedian in 1997. He started performing in coffee shops and laundromats, and eventually went on to play venues such as The Warfield, the Punch Line, and the Palace of Fine Arts. During that time, he became a regular at the Punchline Comedy Club and shared the stage with comedians such as Dave Attell, Bill Burr, Dave Chappelle, and Robin Williams.
