1/3. Storking Comedy @ Stork Club. 2330 Telegraph Ave. Oakland. 6:30pm-9:00pm. Free. Featuring Matt Lieb, Kate Willett, Eric Barry and Red Scott. Open Mic Sign Ups: 6:00pm. Hosted by OJ Patterson
You are cordially invited to Storking Comedy, a one-of-a-kind comedy show in the heart of downtown Oakland. Hosted by OJ Patterson (no relation), Storking Comedy features amazingly funny local comedians working on their craft. Following each act, an interview with the host provides in depth elaboration coupled with ribbing rapport.
Our first spotlight performers:
Kate Willett (Endearing deadpan, awkward martyr “The Mission Position”) Eric Barry (Hyperaware, post-irony, slickster “Full Disclosure Podcast”) Matt Lieb (Wordsmith, Candid, Subversive, “The Mission Position”) and special guest Red Scott (Confident mockery, classic, “Boars Gore and Swords”)
Also, accompanying the merrymaking is of course: you. All comedians, hobbyist, amateur or professional, are welcome to participate limited open mic happening from 6:30-8:00pm. Sign-up: 5:45pm.
Of course, Stork Club wouldn’t be the Stork Club without the awesomely cheap drinks and pinball, available in abundance. Free show, raucous atmosphere and cheap drinks = no brainer.
So come, relax, hang out, participate, get involved and get in to it.
[The Stork Club has no show afterwards so the open-mic is ostensibly limited less. We’re going til we run out of jokers.]
Tonight: Eric Barry headlines the Eric Show @ Milk Bar. 840 Haight St. SF. Free. 8PM. Featuring Jules Posner, Vince Mancini, Jeff Anaya, Mary-Alice McNab, and Matt Lieb. Hosted by Kaseem Bentley.
[An interesting human development is happening onstage tonight at Milk Bar. Eric is getting deep into a very volatile part of his life and rarely does bravery, searching, and revelation occur condensed into a single breath. I hope you listen to his podcast Full Disclosure to hear/understand the intrigue. I hope you can stop by Milk Bar to support somebody of persistance chaos.]
