Many could see Conrad Roth cresting to the upper echelon of San Francisco’s comedy totem. Some would say he was already there. He had a potent and powerful view, voice and expression that spoke true to his East Coast roots in an intelligent/cool way. And then he was gone, back across the country, leaving many to wonder where his career would subsequently go. Who knows? For the meantime he lives in Philadelphia, performing stand-up and filming sketch with his group “Center City Comedy”.

Here’s an interview with Conrad on his recent activities with the San Francisco sheen fading from his shoulders.
