Brian Krans writes an interesting depiction of open mic comedy in the Mission District. While marred by errors, the article gives a distinctly truthful depressive perspective of the sadness of the stage.
[Note: This article does a disservice to Andrew Holmgren with joke thievery accusations. Andrew’s joke is extremely simplified in the story and gives false witness to Holmgren’s originality. “You get the joke now motherfucker?!” Apparently Brian did not.]
