when boys are not funny you don’t have to laugh
I’m a sensible adult, I use coasters, until [I have] sex and then it’s FLUIDS EVERYWHERE! — Matt Lieb @ The Knockout [Paraphrase]

Spinning Platters Monthly Guide to Bay Area Comedy – April 2014 -
I’m really bad at this. REEEEALLY bad. “Would you like to cover comedy on the site,” asked Dakin. “Sure!” says I. Two months after SF Sketchfest, a big pile of nothing! Apologies for underserving and under-performing…
[Sometimes I write things for other websites. These are the shows you should see this month. I feel incredibly inadequate as a comedy curator—regular life problems—but I need to push out my brand of pretentious knowhow.]
Will Durst is here tomorrow thru Sat this week! Call 415-397-7573 for tickets! #sanfrancisco #sf #415
