Clay Newman

Clay Newman at the 8th annual Sacramento Comedy Festival – October 11-14, 2018This stony, joke slinging rabble rouser has been delighting audiences across the west coast for over five years with his tales of life, love, and all that other crap that fills our days.

His comedy career began as just another way for the long time theater nerd to get his stage fix, but he soon found that stand-up was his greatest passion and only actual skill.

Clay is a regular host at Punchline and Cobb’s in San Francisco, as well as Rooster T Feathers in Sunnyvale. He won Comedy Oakland’s Tournament of Champions in 2015 and also found his way to the finals of the 2016 Ventura Harbor Comedy Competition, as well as the 2017 Rooster T Feathers Competition.

Clay has also opened for Eric Andre, Sheng Wang, Tom Rhodes, Mathew Broussard, and Joe Bartnick. Though he is usually a sweet boy, Clay can be sassy when he needs to be and has hosted the roasts of Dustin Diamond and Broke Ass Stuart.
