About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

When you are looking for a comedian , Sandra Risser is the person for you. When it comes to comedy, she's been called one of the funniest comedians in the Bay Area. The San Francisco Chronicle named her as one of 6 comedians to be sure to see. She performs solo or can bring an entire lineup of hilarious comics. She is as funny when doing a virtual show as she is when performing live. Sandra Risser is smart, funny and older than Twinkies! She's eccentric not crazy, drives in the fast lane and claims she can still bench press 500 grams. She believes in the tooth fairy, Santa Clause and clean underwear. Her Motto: "If you miss your ex, reload and fire again!" Sandra is a quick witted, vibrant comic. Her comedy grabs the audience with her first sentence and keeps them laughing throughout her set. Young and old alike are captivated by her unorthodox and irreverent look at growing up in Iowa and surviving the sex, drugs and rock 'n roll culture of the 60's & 70's. Her impressive credits include one woman shows, both comedic and a one act dramatic play she wrote that is based on her earlier years, at the Edinburgh, Scotland; Brighton, England; Santa Cruz, CA and Rogue, Fresno CA Fringe Festivals. She was in the SheDot Comedy Festival in Toronto, Canada and the Sacramento Comedy Festival in Sacramento CA. Sandra received the only standing ovation in the US Comedy Contest in which she took second place. She was a finalist in The World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas NV and is the winner of the Killer Laughs, Go Baby Productions Winner Take All and Battle of the Sexes Comedy Competitions. Sandra is a paid feature at the San Francisco and Sacramento Punch Lines, Cobb's comedy Club in San Francisco, Tommy T's in Pleasant Hill and LA Comedy Club in Las Vegas. She headlines and features in clubs, casinos and other venues throughout the Pacific and Mountain States. She's featured for nationally known comedians such as political satirist Will Durst, Chris Kattan (Saturday Night Live), Larry "Bubbles" Brown (Letterman) and Paul Ogata (Comedy Central). Sandra is an accomplished actor and speaker. She was featured in the dark comedy "Help Wanted", earned 3 "Artie" nominations for best supporting actress and won her division's "Toastmaster's International Speech Contest". Sandra builds a unique bond with the audience as she share stories about her own journey from youth to young adult to middle age and beyond. She continues to live her life to the fullest. Whether she's using self deprecating humor doing standup comedy or being more serious when giving motivational seminars, she is an inspiration to her audiences. When people leave, they know they've seen a unique talent and that "age is just a state of mind".

Private PartyReviewed on March 13, 2023From Apache Junction, AZ

Sandra is a delight. We hired her for a banquet at our 55+ RV park resort. She identified with the audience and had them laughing consistently. The humor was age appropriate and welcome. Thank you!

Sandra Risser:

Thank you for your kind words. Meeting you and so many other warm, welcoming people was a pleasure.

Review by Scott R.

Private PartyReviewed on December 14, 2019From San Francisco, CA

Sandra Risser performed at my house party for 20 people. She was very professional, easy to work with and funny! Her 30 minute routine was a big hit with both the 20 year olds and the 60 year old parents. I recommend Sandra highly.

Sandra Risser:

Thank you, Scott. Working with you and performing for your "comedy party" was a pleasure. I wish all of you a happy holiday season. May you have many more yearly comedy parties.
