11/30. The Business: Sylvan Spectacular @ Dark Room Theater. 2263 Mission St. SF. 8PM. $5. Feat Sylvan Productions, OJ Patterson, Matt Gubser, Bucky Sinister and Sean Keane.
Tuesday night, Sylvan Productions has their final open improv show at the Dark Room. Wednesday, they’re the guest of honor at The Business, as we say goodbye to our Dark Roommates, and say hello to a new era of SF comedy. If that weren’t enough, we’ve also got comedians Matt Gubser and O.J. Patterson - plus regular Businessmen Sean and Bucky.
Sylvan Productions has done a wildly popular Open Improv show at the Dark Room every Tuesday, which moves to the SUB/Mission starting in December. They also produce a five-hour comedy show every Wednesday at the Dirty Trix Saloon, and this Friday, their Producers Show comes to Dirty Trix as well. Their shows may be heavily improv’ed, but they could hardly be improved.
Matt Gubser is an SF comedian with the hair of a handsomer Jesus Christ and the wit of a sassier Judas Iscariot. He performs at all the finest clubs and showcases in the Bay Area, and he’s also a potter, as if that’s fair at all. O.J. Patterson is a rising star who recently opened for Hannibal Buress. His blog, Courting Comedy (http://courtingcomedy.tumblr.com/) is a living document of the local scene and your best source for Holy City Zoo photos.
The show gets started at 8, and admission is still just five bucks. Are you going to be there? The answer is, “Yes, and…”
[I’m deeply honored to be placed on this show. Performing with the Business has been a personal dream and I’m glad to do it with my friends.]
