Kurt Weitzmann, who founded such Bay Area sketch groups as Nervous Laughter and the SF Weekly parody SF Weakly, takes on the Bay Area in this special holiday edition of his comedy show, Hysterical Historical San Francisco. Weitzmann has been performing stand-up since 1987, appearing on Comedy Central, MTV, The Vancouver Comedy Festival and in San Francisco’s Sketchfest. In addition to his album Talented, Weitzmann wrote and directed the film Last Call. In this stand-up show, Weitzmann turns to his city for inspiration, poking fun at everything from the Barbary Coast to Haight-Ashbury (and every neighborhood in between).
