Clay Newman

Actor/Comedian/Lovable Dude

This 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, Punch Line in Sacramento, and Flappers in Burbank. He’s recently been seen opening for Eric Andre, Andrew Santino, Aida Rodriguez, Sam Tripoli, Andy Woodhull, Sheng Wang, Tom Rhodes, Mathew Broussard, and Joe Bartnick.

As far as competitions and festivals go, Clay was a finalist in the 2019 San Francisco Comedy Competition, 2017 Rooster T Feathers Competition, 2016 Ventura Harbor Competition, and he won the 2015 Comedy Oakland Tournament of Champions. SF Sketchfest has featured Clay for the past 5 years, and he has also been seen at the Big Pine and Ventura Harbor Festivals.

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. He is currently 1-0 at The Comedy Store’s Roast Battle.
