1/21-23. Kris Tinkle CD Recording @ San Francisco Punch Line. 444 Battery St. SF. 8pm. $15. featuring Julian Vance and Caitlin Gill. Tickets Available: Here. Goldstar: Here.

Kris Tinkle is good. Really good. Great in fact. I really enjoyed his debut album, released five-ish years ago. He’s a working class, to the point, quintessential comedian that developed into a regional headliner before uprooting to New York City a while ago. His style — bombastic and lewd, yet personal and deprecating — favors the weekend “fun” crowd, and he’s never been fully embraced as a media darling. Still, Kris Tinkle is very funny and someone to lend ears, eyes and support this week at the Punchline.

12/28. Club Chuckles 10th Anniversary Bash @ Hemlock Tavern. 1131 Polk St. SF. 9pm. $5. Featuring Joey Devine, Donny Divanian, Jesse Elias, Caitlin Gill, Sean Keane, Chris Thayer and more. 

Outer-echeclon comedy showcase Club Chuckles is turning the ripe old age of 10. Launched in 2003 by Hemlock Tavern live music booker Anthony Bedard as a “Safeway Select”-style ploy to book less bands, Club Chuckles has achieved the cold-comfort distinction of becoming the currently longest-running “comedy-in-a-rock-club” monthly series in Americapresaging the alt rock/alt comedy crossover wet-dream of the 2000s, predating Patton Oswalt’s “The Comedians of Comedy” tour, and even birthing a comedy record label (Talent Moat). Club Chuckles also instituted the comedy world’s first-ever 10 drink maximum policy in the wake of the heckler uprising at Todd Barry’s impromptu crowd-work set at Hemlock in 2006. Sure, every late-to-the-party, ambulance-chasing Johnny Come(dy) Lately rock club is now trying to pad out their schedules with laffs & yuks, and the whole comedy-in-a-rock-club thing is now the toast of greater Brooklyn, but back in the early 2000s, this kind of programming nearly got Bedard sh*t-canned from his job until Neil Hamburger smashed the Hemlock’s all-time bar sales record.

12/12. Club Chuckles: Kyle Kinane [Two Shows!] @ Hemlock Tavern. 1131 Polk St., SF. 7:30&9:30pm. $12-15. Featuring Anna Seregina & Bucky Sinister; Caitlin Gill & Nato Green. Click words to buy tix. 

[Club Chuckles is sending 2013 (and its 10th year) off with a bona fide champion. If you’re loyal to this site, it’s values, and it’s sentiments, you already love Kyle Kinane. For all his accomplishments and well-crafted, well-recieved, subtle takeover as a symbol (and voice) for the embodiment of “Comedy”, Kyle keeps it ghetto. He’s still for the everyman, still a product of humble hard work, a lyrical lush of charming deprecation. Spread the word, be apart of the Club Chuckles movement, and enjoy the illustrious privilege of San Francisco’s many hidden gems.]
