Monday Nonsense takes place every second and fourth Monday at the Showdown (10 6th St, San Francisco, CA 94103). 9/22 is the next show, and here’s the fabulous lineup:
Rajeev Dhar is the result of questionable decisions and unwavering confusion. Learn more at your local library on the cork-board where people put flyer of their missing pets. Reward if found. Do not approach, but don’t worry he’s just sort of a leering perv.
Clay Newman is is a weed smoking rabble rouser that entertains audiences across the country with his tales of life, love, and all that other crap. Catch him at The Comedy Jam every Thursday at Milk Bar in SF.
Stefani Silverman is a San Francisco based comic dedicated to finding meaning in life through humor. A former attorney, she uses her hard earned critical thinking skills to talk about such complex topics as body image, sex and things she sees on Muni. Mostly observational, increasingly self revelatory, Stefani’s comedy will get you laughing and keep you thinking. Check her out at Blush! Wine bar at 476 Castro Street where she produces a bi-weekly free comedy show, and also at Cafe Royale at 800 Post st, where she produces a monthly The Comikaze Lounge the third Wednesday of each month.
Matteen Stewart (Special guest from LA!) “…has played the token “Black Guy” in a National McDonald’s commercial and has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Mateen has performed at The Hollywood Improv, The Comedy Store and Flappers Comedy Club.”
Kevin O’Shea, Joe Nguyen, Cara Tramontano, and late add Trenton Davis (won 2013 Sacramento Comedy Festival) will be on us tonight at Stage Werx Theatre (446 Valencia St.).
Plus Jason Mack and special guests! Yay, guests!
8pm in the Mission! Be there! :)
