9/20. Funny or Die Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival starring Dave Chappelle and Flight of the Conchords @ Shoreline Amphitheater. Tickets On Sale Friday, 6/21. 

[Quite an intriguing and exciting development. Two stages, too much talent. Chappelle has made the Bay his unofficial workout den for the better part of the decade and Flight of the Conchords hasn’t made an appearance in the Bay Area in this decade. Additionally, hilarious native Al Madrigal is on the bill along with heavy headliners such as Hannibal Buress and John Mulaney. I’ve never seen a comedy show without a roof but if it’s akin to music festivals, the results will be exhausted, sweaty, satisfied people.]

[I had the happenstance pleasure to watch this movie last night at Roxie Theater in the Mission District. The movie documents one of New York’s best places for comedy, showcasing a variety of dangerously funny individuals. It should be a criminal misdemeanor to be as funny as the people in this feature. The concert is intersected with interviews from some of the world’s greatest humorists (i.e. Marc Maron, Paul F. Tompkins) detailing the tremendous highs of independent shows and the untold lows. Director Victor Varando, a hilarious comic in his own right, pays masterful tribute the pride of the comedy community. Every performance inspires additional applause, every laugh double tracked between time and space. This movie is a must see for any comedy nerd from the budding to ferocious. If you’re irked by laughter, need not appear. Go get it San Francisco!]
