Jeffrey Tambor
Show: 
Bullseye

Jeffrey Tambor has spent more than 30 years as an actor. A native of San Francisco, he started in television in the 1970s, and his career has followed a simple track since: he plays important authority figures (doctors, lawyers, judges) and self-important pseudo-authority figures. He portrayed the sweet, sad, hilariously self-centered sidekick Hank Kingsley on The Larry Sanders Show in the 1990s, and this decade played the patriarch of the Bluth family on Arrested Development. In addition to his work as an actor, he's also a teacher, having worked for many years alongside late legendary acting teacher Milton Katselas. He teaches regular classes and workshops in Los Angeles, including one March 21st at the American Film Institute.

Show: 
Bullseye

Comedian Sean Cullen is a fixture of the comedy scenes in both Los Angeles and his native Canada. He's been seen on Last Comic Standing and in his own Comedy Central special. He also hosts a radio program for the CBC. Sean sang for us on the less-than-popular lyrical subject of farming.


Zion I are an Oakland-based hip-hop group known for producer Amp Live's diverse influences and emcee Zumbi's thoughtful rhymes. They performed some memorable songs for the crowd at Cobb's, including the Bay Area anthem "The Bay" and "Antenna" from their new album "The Takeover," which is in stores now.

Tom Ammiano: California State Assemblymember and Standup Comic on The Sound of Young America

Tom Ammiano
Show: 
Bullseye

Tom Ammiano was a San Francisco schoolteacher, standup comic and gay activist before becoming the state of California's first gay school board member. He went on to become president of the San Francisco school board, and later president of the city's board of supervisors. Now he represents San Francisco in the California state assembly. He's never stopped performing comedy, and is considered one of the fathers of San Francisco's still-thriving queer comedy scene.

We spoke with Ammiano during our live show at SF Sketchfest in San Francisco.
