[Hand to Mouth Comedy is a unique fish in the bastion of creativity known as the City by the Bay. Most comedy shows purport primed performers providing pristine proclamations promoted by practice. Hand to Mouth toss it all out of the window. The thematic stand-up confluence guarantees freshness: acts shelved in lieu of new material – sometimes of atypical trajectory — to say succinctly what may never be said again. A thrilling challenge, a platform for enlightenment, a break from the norm, Hand to Mouth crystallizes the experimental, unearthing new gems along the way.]
