Favorite Things of Last Night: Jackie Kashian @ Brava Theater

[I love watching Jackie work. She made her presence known at the Slipnutz show last Saturday and it’s fascinating to watch how much control and craft she possesses. Highly recommend you watch her if you’re unfamiliar and to study her if you want to get better.]

Favorite Things of Last Night: Ever Mainard

[Two far-flown performers were featured on my show last night: Adam Newman and Ever Mainard. I had a whiff of Adam through the internet comedy unconsciousness but Ever was a complete—and pleasant—surprise. She riffed the majority of her set, taking shots at audience members, whilst retaining her endearing chumminess. She’s also an exceptional storyteller, making a clear case to why every Starbucks should be burned to the ground. Enjoy this clip and stay informed.]

"Do you think if they put Jesus on the penny it would be called a JCPenny?"

"… I don’t hate my dad. I just drink like I do."

Jules Posner @ Eureka Theater/SF Sketchfest [Paraphrase]

"It’s funny that the only thing people in San Francisco talk about are the 49ers and gentrification because 1849 was the year San Francisco became gentrified."

Dro @ Stork Club/Storking Comedy [Paraphrase]

Favorite Things of Last Night: Sara Schaefer @ Verdi Club

[The multi-talented Sara Schaefer has been ubiquitous throughout the collective internet unconsciousness for a few years now. Dope podcast. Dope television show. Still, all the prestige in the world considered, Sara really shines as a stand-up comedian. Last night she riffed on her shadow, imagining it behaving asynchronously (i.e. suicide, dropping and popping it), complete with actouts and absolutely killed! Sara Schaefer is too cool, and I highly recommend you check her out tonight at the Punchline (9:15PM) because stars like her only shoot over the Bay every once in a while.

"I’ve had more stress trying to remember an AppleID password than I had growing up without a father."

"You ever take a shit so big, you convince yourself you could survive prison?"

Tim Young @ Dorsey’s Locker [Paraphrase] 


"Greyhound is for pregnant teens [audience groans] and ex convicts. Oh is there a lot of pregnant teens in the audience? Well, I did get cheers for [mentioning] Fresno.”

– Julian Vance @ San Francisco Punch Line [Paraphrase]
