Boiling Frog Entertainment is a limited liability company, co-owned by Kurt Weitzmann and M. Thaddeus Ronquillo, that devotes itself to passionate, groundbreaking and socially conscious productions and films. BFE has a deep appreciation for cutting edge humor somewhere to the left of dark.
Kurt Weitzmann is an award winning Director/Producer/Filmmaker/Comedian, a finalist in the 2015 San Francisco Comedy Competition, and a Comedy Central alumn. Kurt has written, directed, and produced shows at both the HBO Workspace and the Comedy Central Stage. Along with Howard Stone, Kurt has created shows at the prestigious SF Sketchfest and the Vancouver Comedy Festival, where together they co-produced three nights of the infamous Hitler, Jesus, and Obama Roasts.
Kurt began his career in the late 80s at the infamous HOLY CITY ZOO, working with such personalities as Robin Williams, Dana Carvey,
Patton Oswalt, and Margaret Cho. In between Stand Up performances Kurt founded numerous Bay Area sketch groups including COMEDY NOIR, and NERVOUS LAUGHTER which was touted as "funnier than any given season of Saturday Night Live in the last ten years" by BAM MAGAZINE.
M. Thaddeus Ronquillo ("Mar") is a native San Franciscan who graduated as a Valedictorian from Sacred Heart High School (now Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory), attended law school, and for a time provided legal assistance to survivors of domestic violence and senior abuse. Mar moved on to talent acquisition in corporate, tech, and biotech sectors, remaining true to the vocation of making positive social change personally and professionally--and he's on a season 12 episode of KQED's Check, Please! Bay Area... Mar is the business side to BFE as the Head of Operations.
Boiling Frog Entertainment's award winning productions include Last Call (Short Narrative Film), #BeRobin The Movie (Documentary Film), The Abnormal Psychology of God (Full Length play), and Win a Few, Lose a Few (One Act Play).
