[A good time, and then some]

Hey, in eleven days I’m performing stand up comical orations at the Purple Onion for the third time in my professional career. The last time I tickled so many people, four of whom I knew. If you were bummed that you couldn’t see me, FRET NOT! This event is $10, on a Wednesday (which is the new Friday) and features a slew of talented comedians/nerds. In light of the “theme” of the show, I’m looking to be the Lando of the night, but there’s another black guy involved: GARY CORNBREAD ANDERSON! He’s much more Billy Dee than I could ever hope to be (RHYME!). So with my height, brown exterior, and proliferation of facial hair, I will resolve to be the noble Wookie known as Chewbacca (Chewie if you’re a familiar). My duties as Chewbacca include being loud, intimidating, strong, comprehensive to only a few people, enjoy a game of space chess, not wear any pants, AND be ultimately lovable.
FYI, I don’t have a shirt on as I type this.
SEE YOU AT THE PURPLE ONION!

Ignore that other, number-based occasion going on this Wednesday and roll to The Dark Room to help us celebrate our huge deuce! The Business turns two this week and we couldn’t be prouder of our little trainwreck. In honor of this new leaf, we’ve got a roster that’s packed hella fat. We’ve imported three strains of kind buds from LA to perform for you, as well as the dank home-grown shit you know and love.

From the finest clubs… in Los Angeles:

Jake Weisman is a comedian and storyteller. He loves cats and podcasts, and he has two of each. One of his podcasts, The Morning After…Podcast, is about pornography, and it recently won Punchline Magazine’s 2010 Best New Comedy Podcast of the Year award. Just to remind you, he loves cats.

Dave Ross is a stand-up comedian and the creator of the wildly successful Holy F*ck comedy show. He performs regularly at renowned shows and clubs across California, including What’s Up Tiger Lily? and the Hollywood Improv. His comedy career began as a radio DJ at KRZR in Fresno, but he quickly decided to leave and make less money standing on stages. He’s smiley as hell and probably likes you.

Shawn Pearlman is from Los Angeles, CA (where nobody is from). In his hometown, he has performed at Comedy Death Ray at UCB, Largo at the Coronet, the Hollywood Improv, and that’s all. Just kidding, other places too! He is never homesick.

And keeping it local we have the Businessmen selection: Alex, Sean, Chris and Bucky. Plus a special video premiere from Chris!

While other shows going on this Wednesday may offer you a free “medical” gift, we still believe laughter is the best medicine you can get without having to pay a fake doctor to give you a state-recognized identification card. All you need to get our goods is five on it. And if you get the munchies, we are surrounded by burritos.

Wednesday Night Comedy @ Masses Sports Bar and Grill. 2721 North Main St. Walnut Creek. 9 PM. 21+. No Cover. Featuring Howard Stone, Cory Loykasek, Grant Lyon, Andy Peters and headliner Frankie Quiñones. Hosted by Greg Asdourian.

Tomorrow: “No Bob Lieberman Show” @ Castagnola’s. 286 Jefferson St. SF. 8 PM. $5. Featuring Griffin Daley, Chantel Williams, Nicole Turley, Kaseem Bentley, Shawn Robbins and more. Hosted by. Brian King.

[For subtext to this show title look no further: Brian vs. Bob. Life is rife with funny conflict.]

Hello, I am performing tomorrow. Needed more time to prepare? I understand. I’m terrible at self promotion. None the less at least I’ve told you in the coyest way possible.
