Arthur Gaus

Arthur Gaus is a standup comic based out of San Francisco. He started at a young age in his hometown and was raised as a comic by the great heroes of San Francisco comedy. He tells locally sourced, small-batch, fair-trade certified jokes about both the light stuff (Walgreens is wacky!), the heavy stuff (One day we're all gonna die!) and all the stuff in between. Over the better part of 20 years he has been fortunate enough to open for tremendous comics like John Oliver, Ed Helms and David Spade at really wonderful comedy clubs, beautiful theaters, stylish underground venues and crappy casinos all over the country; basically anywhere there's a microphone and a captive audience. Using his distinctive energetic delivery, he combines observations, stories and biting social commentary while weaving in and out of characters to create a style of comedy that is as whip-smart and unique as it is hilarious. Arthur is also the creator and co-host of the Maniac Bowl alt-comedy show in San Francisco.
