12/17. Laugh Like You Mean It @ The Purple Onion. 140 Columbus Ave. SF. 10PM. $18. Feat Kevin Camia, John Hoogasian, Joe Gorman, Kazumi Kusano, Paul Simmons and Jason Mack.
Laugh Like You Mean It may be the greatest thing that has happened to mankind. You will laugh so hard for so long (90 minutes) that it is possible that you may die. In 1989, a Danish dude named Ole Bentzen died watching “A Fish Called Wanda.” And our show has been describ…ed as “funnier than ‘A Fish Called Wanda*.’” That is historical proof that our stand-up comedy show is wonderful and awesome.
Come lift your spirits with “Laugh Like You Mean It” producers Jason Mack & Paul Simmons, and a lineup of the best pro and underground comics in the Bay Area!
Headliner: KEVIN CAMIA (Comedy Central’s “Live At Gotham,” iTunes “Top 10 Comedy Albums of 2010”)
JOE GORMAN (Founder of “Baby Faces of Comedy Tour”)
An adorable one-woman sketch from KAZUMI KUSANO
The smart, acerbic wit of producer/performer PAUL SIMMONS
