NORTH BAY BOHEMIAN -- Stahl-Haven began performing improv in college at San Francisco State University, where she took her first comedy class.

“I really loved it and thought I was good at it, but it was just so scary,” she says.

She continued improv but kept standup comedy on the back burner. Meanwhile, she became a professor of rhetoric at the University of San Francisco, also teaching at College of Marin and Santa Rosa Junior College, while living in Novato with her husband and two kids.
