SF comedians pay tribute to the goddess of comedy Joan Rivers by doing what she loved most, performing! All comedians on the show will be decked out in Joan style, wearing feather, fur or sequins and huge statement necklaces while telling the filthiest of jokes. A portion of proceeds will benefit Joan’s favorite charities - God’s Love We Deliver and the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Show includes a special performance by the SF Gay Men’s Chorus!
Comedians on the show all share that Joan-esque essence of edginess, razor-sharp wit and passion for comedy: Scott Capurro, Kelly Pryce, Pippi Lovestocking, Larry Bubbles Brown, Carla Clay, Sandra Risser, Brendan Lynch, Conor Kellicutt, and special guest Ronn Vigh, writer for Fashion Police! Hosted by Mary Van Note.
