If I don’t do this, right now, I will be murdered by Juan Medina. I said that I’d cover his brainchild—the PM Show with Juan Medina—and I’ve been going through some shit, but I’m oddly optimistic about comedy at the moment SO HERE. WE. GO!
The PM Show with Juan Medina is a glorious commercial for effort. There’s free beer and food, a jazz band (the time I attended), a pop up Japanese game show (with Scott Simpson), a hilarious sidekick (Jesse Hett, again, the time I attended), and host Juan, culling all that together while experimenting wildly with hats and voices (i.e. characters). For all the energy and tangible—if not awkward—success, the one thing the show needs is patronage, a money holder, a big bucks supporter. All the tenates of a truely novel San Francisco is there, and I could imagine classyish twentysomethings really getting a kick out of the frenetic energy (and muscle-relaxing jazz). Alas, the PM Show continues its run without the attention it deserves, from the press, from its intended audience, and, ultimately from you. 

The show takes place the fourth Friday of the month in the Grotto performance space in the Sports Basement at 1590 Bryant St. San Francisco, Ca. This show is free & features free beer (21+ with valid id) Doors at 6, show at 6:30.

[YO! Sport Basement and the good folks at True Hustle Entertainment (Where the Hustle is the Truth) have a special place in SF Comedy lore. Their gracious amenities and off-center atmosphere makes for a tremendously ample entertainment experience. It’s like hanging out with that really rich kid; what’s the catch to their generosity? Nothing! Also, where do they get their fancy, rich-kid clothes? The Sports Basement, probably! The PM Show boasts a rotunda for the senses. Groove with your eyes, drink with your ears, laugh with your hearts. Plus, I’ve never been, so HEY!.

Karinda Dobbins, gracing the stage/performance area with a headlining set, is a comedian after my own heart. She’s smart, progressive, sharp and indomitable. It’s an honor to watch her, and a delight to witness the symbiotic nurturing between Karinda Dobbins and comedy, working together to enliven our world.]
