SF State student leaves the city cracking up with jokes that hit close to home. Zach Chiappellone, 24, gets his material from observing what goes on around him. “I’m a true believer fact is funnier than fiction,” said Chiappellone. Keeping busy by performing stand-up all around San Francisco, Chiappellone said he hopes to turn his passion into a career one day. “If I can pay rent and do comedy then my dream had come true,” said Chiappellone.
