Barry, “Its gonna be like a Fake TV Taping/Play/Skype and Stand UP- Birthday Party-Awards Show.”
Scheduled to appear..
From NYC - Myq Kaplan ( Conan, Letterman ) 
From DC - Comedy Powerhouse and Festival Darling Brandon Wardell 
From LA - Chris Fairbanks ( Fuel TV )
Along with SF upstarts Jeremy Talamantes, David Studebaker, and Trevor Hill performing in house.
During his recent stay back in the Bay, Barry has been embraced by a new era of comedians, many of whom will be making cameo drop

ins during the show. Dro Knows, Mean Dave, Danny Dechi and many more will be rounding out an insane line-up of comedy, all for only $5 bucks in advance ($7 at the door). And did we mention it’s a birthday party as well?!

[Barry Sobel has been making waves in the Bay Area for the last few weeks, to the adoration or chagrin of entire community, which is ironic due to his instrumental splash three decades ago. The 80s, where acts were fast and loose, persona was pristine and comedy was almost an organized criminal racket. It’s very rare to see an elder statesman from that time. When the bottom dropped out of the business people either returned to being ultra famous, abandoned home for greener pastures, did a complete career about face, dropped the habit all together or dropped into the ground. RARE, to see a comedian 100% committed, hungry, aching with independent moxie and enigmatic charisma. Additionally, comedian parties — birthdays, going-aways, key — are the definition of high fructose powder kegs as everyone gets drunk and feuds bubble over. So basically, this is a one-of-a-kind event that postscript anecdotes will fail to match its magic. Check the video below for a taste of Sobel’s brand of revelry]
