"Greetings, from Queer Mountain" is the queen mother of queer storytelling series.
Every episode features a diverse collection of work from LGBTQ+ performers across the country. Running for over 5 years in Austin, New Orleans, New York, and now Oakland, we've produced over 125 unique and original live shows featuring performers such as Daniel Rugg Webb, Bowen Yang, Gabby Rivera, and Janine Brito. It’s like hanging out with all the queer friends you wish you had!

Natasha Muse is like the C3P0 of San Francisco comedy: a bunch of small bears once mistook her for a golden god but in reality she’s a bumbling robot (as well as a mom, a transsexual, and a firm agnostic). The SF Weekly once declared her a “Comedian to Watch” in 2014, and in 2016 they upgraded her to an “Artist to Watch.” Natasha features at the SF Punchline and Cobb’s Comedy Club, and has worked with such comedy luminaries as Maria Bamford, Anthony Jeselnik, Janeane Garofalo, Wyatt Cenac, and God. Natasha’s comedy is so good, it’s not even funny.
Marcus Williams is a stand-up comedian posing as a structural engineer during business hours. He was a semi-finalist in the 2016 Sacramento Comedy Festival and has performed at the San Francisco Punchline, Cobb's Comedy Club, all over New York, Denver and several other locations with a stage and a microphone. He's funny as hell.
Irene Tu is a Chicago-born, San Francisco-based stand-up comedian, actor, and writer. In 2017, the San Francisco Chronicle singled her out as an “artist on the brink of fame,” on the heels of being named one of the “Bay Area’s 11 Best Stand Up Comedians” (SFist) and one of 20 “Women to Watch” (KQED). She has performed at numerous festivals including SF Sketchfest, Clusterfest, RIOT LA, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and Outside Lands. Irene has opened for comedians such as Anthony Jeselnik, W.

Nori Reed isn’t just a stand-up comic based in Oakland, California. Nori is a lifestyle. When she isn’t perfecting her skin care routine or thinking about the devastating impact of U.S. imperialism, Nori performs at some of the best Bay Area comedy venues like Punchline SF, The Setup, & Cheaper Than Therapy. Currently, she co-produces the multiple award-winning comedy show, Man Haters, & was recently selected for the 2019 Diversity in Comedy Fellowship at KML SF.
