Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction was originally founded in Seattle, and is now held monthly at the Nerdist Theater in Los Angeles, CA. It has been featured as part of the Noise for the Needy Festival (Seattle) Bridgetown Comedy Festival (Portland) Riot LA (Los Angeles) SF Sketchfest, and will be at the upcoming Just For Laughs fest (Chicago.) A podcast culled from the live show is debuting in 2013.
Laughspin.Com called CEFF “…One of my favorite comedy shows I’ve ever taken in. Period.”
[There’s so many things that make this show a no-brainer to go to. For starters, it has assembled some of the greatest perspectives/voices of the Bay Area’s comedy community: everyone is coming with a very skilled, very defined style. Secondly, I don’t know the outcome of January’s Sketchfest shows but LAST YEAR, two amazing champions were crowned with David Gborie and Sean Keane (whom will do battle at this event). Thirdly, the absurdity of so much filth is extremely cathartic. Fourthly, just fucking go.]

MISERY INDEX Monday, June 3rd @ 8:00pm The Rite Spot (2099 Folsom @ 17th) 3 blocks from 16th & Mission BART NO COVER!
Let’s face it. Things aren’t going great: a bad economy, a horrible job market, never ending wars, exorbitant rent prices, dysfunctional relationships, mental illness, addiction, poverty, corruption, STDs, Rihanna. While there isn’t a cure for all of life’s problems, there is a tonic…
MISERY INDEX is a free, monthly show that brings together some of the most pessimistic, neurotic & dysfunctional individuals on the face of the planet: stand-up comedians. Take the edge off with cheap drinks and free laughs as these choleric comics direct their disdain towards all of society’s growing ills.
June’s lineup features maladjusted mirth makers David Gborie (Bridgetown Comedy Fest), James Fluty (Hand to Mouth), Jesse Elias (Outside Lands), Karinda Dobbins (Punch Line), Christopher John (Cobb’s) and Land Smith (Talkies) with special guests Sad Vicious (comedy/music/madness). Hosted by Trevor Hill (Hand to Mouth).
Every First Monday of the Month!
