10/4. iL Pirata Comedy 8 Year Anniversary @ iL Pirata. 2007 16th St. 9pm. Free. Featuring Jabari Davis, Tony Sparks, Rudy O, David Gborie, Frankie Quinones, Clay Newman, Sean Keane, Karinda Dobbins, Shanti Charan, Eloisa Bravo, Yayne Abeba, Anthony Medina.
[I don’t know a more underground gem in the City than the monthly comedy showcase at iL Pirata. It’s kind of intimidating: nestled in the amber-slick off shoot of Portrero Hill; a pub-ish maze of aged leather seats and old souls; an ambiguous round of chairs circled by booths; an inherent casualness bordering on uncertainty. It all requires a level of commitment, to settle down, to nestle, to anticipate. The show never starts early, the subsequent dancing is sometimes forgotten, but in between — especially on anniversary shows — is a solid block of gold. It’s the 3-hour comedy festival, the after hours Comedy Day, the alternative “Sunday Showcase”; it’s every San Francisco Bay Area tradition wrapped up into a single instance. Go early, stay for the long haul, have a few drinks and tell me iL Pirata’s Anniversary show is anything you’ve ever experienced before in your life. If you claim me “wrong”, you’d be a liar, a fool or both, but you’ll also extremely satisfied.]
