12/8. Eric Cash Special Recording [2 SHOWS!] @ Lost Weekend Video. 1034 Valencia St. SF. Featuring Natasha Muse and Xander Deveaux. 

Eric Cash has had a rough year. After getting married and losing his wife to breast cancer in the summer of 2012, and then having to relocate to the Pacific Northwest to care for his father with stage 4 lung cancer in the early part of this year, his plans for his comedy career have repeatedly had to be set aside to deal with heavy, real world issues, and the madness that comes with mourning and trauma.But he’s refused to let those things stop him. Working material nightly at showcases and open mics for the last year and a half in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, and everywhere in between, he’s finally ready to set forth with the DIY comedy special he’d been planning since the spring of 2012.If you don’t know who he is, Cash is an outspoken underground comic who has performed all over the world, including the Edmonton Fringe Festival and the Melbourne Comedy Fest. His new onslaught of material is dark surrealism based in hard reality with topics ranging from creative ways to cope with PTSD to the nature of nightmares manifested in the real world.


[This show is a long time coming. Eric Cash has a story to tell and has a voice to tell it. Great openers, great venue, I highly recommend.]

Cynic Cave presents Ian Karmel

Ian Karmel is a comedian whose style zig-zags between the eclectic and the universal, appealing both to crowds who own homes in the suburbs, and crowds just staying with their parents in the suburbs until they figure some things out. Coming from an improv background, including time with The Groundlings and the Upright Citizens Brigade, Ian entered the world of stand-up with a unique perspective that helped him win the 2011 Funniest Person in Portland, 2010 Portland Amateur Comedy Competition and has given him the opportunity to perform at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, Austin’s Moontower Comedy and Oddity Fest, Portland’s Helium Comedy Club, Philadelphia’s Helium Comedy Club, Austin’s Cap City Comedy Club, Seattle’s Comedy Underground and Los Angeles’ Comedy Store. In addition to stand-up, Karmel has appeared on television, playing a character in IFC’s sketch show Portlandia and as a post-game analyst and commentator for the Portland Trailblazers. Since moving to LA from Portland, he is now a writer/performer on Chelsea Lately.

8pm show featuring Josef Anolin 
10pm show featuring Kelly Anneken

Both Shows hosted by George Chen & Kevin O’Shea 
$12

Tonight’s performance is made possible in part through a gift by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts through the YBCAway program

  • Audience Member: No, we came to the wrong show.

Will Weldon is a comedian who currently resides in Los Angeles, CA. He has performed at the comedy festivals Bridgetown, Riot LA, and Just for Laughs, and has been written about in a number of comedy publications only read by those who are hoping their name appears in a comedy publication. He’s pretty funny.Also featuring Sean KeaneHosted By George Chen & Kevin O’Shea!


[I love Will Weldon. He’s the definition of proto-breaktrhough, analogous to a sure-fire start-up, with more “underground” buzz than a vibrating suppository. This is a highly recommended show because it’s a hell-of-a-lot more expensive to see this rising star a couple of years from now at the Punch Line. Also, I hear he’s hella good a Tetris]
