Comedians telling their favorite jokes in their favorite outfits!Lineup includes Marga Gomez, Ivan Hernandez, Jules Posner, Colleen Watson,Bryan Moore, and your host Mary Van Note.On August 16th, join Mary Van Note and headliner Marga Gomez at Comedy Stylings at The Cynic Cave! The Cynic Cave is fast becoming the hottest comedy destination in San Francisco hosting the best and most unique comedians from the Bay Area and beyond. Watch some of the funniest comedians from San Francisco in an intimate environment, where they’ll be sporting their best threads while telling their best jokes."I wanted a way to combine a couple of my favorite things; fashion and comedy. I looked around at some fellow performers and thought, hey, I’m not alone in being excited to dress up to perform,” says producer/host Mary Van Note, “I ask each performer to wear their favorite outfit, and they’ll be brought on stage with details on what they’re wearing like a fashion show. When you think about it, some of the comedy greats have such iconic style; think Bill Cosby’s sweater or Woody Allen’s glasses, Eddie Murphy’s red leather suit or Phyllis Diller’s feathers. Style has always been a part of comedy, just not as noticed, and Comedy Stylings is a way to celebrate the jokes and the style.” In addition to great comedy each show features costume changes, a vintage pop-up shop and a makeover. That’s a lot of fun to be happening in a basement of a video store in the Mission.

Greg Proops on the way his style evolved (see entire Laugh Spin interview here):

Last question, I’ve always just wondered, what is it with you and Paul F. Tompkins wearing those snazzy suits?
I just always dressed up on stage. I’ve told this story before, but I don’t know why Paul does it. I assume he does it because he enjoys it, but I used to, in San Francisco in the old days, wear a leather jacket and a skull t-shirt and jewelry and stuff like that.

Then I got to my 30s and I went to England. All of sudden I realized the wardrobe available to me and I saw a guy at an airport who was dressed just like me at the time and he was about 10 years older than me. He was wearing skull shorts, tennis shoes, and a leather jacket, and a necklace, and this guy looked like Def Leppard’s roadie and I was like, “I can’t do that.” You know what I mean? When I get to be that old, I can’t do it and when I’m older I definitely can’t do that.

So, I started then wearing a suit about 20 years ago and I’ve stuck with it. Mostly because you can get older. You can be a grown up in it. At a certain point, for me, I never feel comfortable with just a t-shirt on stage.

I like the suit. It was ‘thrown under the bus’ some years ago as far as comedy wardrobe trends and I don’t think it should have been completely gotten rid of. Certainly, people should dress the way want, but I do appreciate people like you, Paul [F. Tompkins], and newer comics like, Ryan Stout, all wearing suits.
