Some Candid Captures of Kurt Tub! Record Release Party at the Verdi Club by Red Scott

8/16. Kurt Tub!: Kurt Braunohler’s Record Release Party @ Verdi Club. 2424 Mariposa St. SF. 8pm. $18-$20. Featuring Laura Kightlinger, Sean Keane, Bucky Sinister, Nato Green, and musical guests The Wrong Words. Presented by Club Chuckles and The Business. 

[This show will most likely fill up: Kurt Braunohler has been rising for a number of years (with a high potential for “discoverability”); he compliments San Francisco (especially the demin-and-plaid parade of the Mission); and comes constipated with goodies and intangibles. I’ve heard How Do I Land?, the cause for celebration. It’s good. Braunohler has bottled charisma and earnest into a handsome offering. Stay tuned for a review, get ready for the bash.]

[Hand to Mouth Comedy is a unique fish in the bastion of creativity known as the City by the Bay. Most comedy shows purport primed performers providing pristine proclamations promoted by practice. Hand to Mouth toss it all out of the window. The thematic stand-up confluence guarantees freshness: acts shelved in lieu of new material – sometimes of atypical trajectory — to say succinctly what may never be said again. A thrilling challenge, a platform for enlightenment, a break from the norm, Hand to Mouth crystallizes the experimental, unearthing new gems along the way.]

Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction - Feb 2012 - Derek Sheen

After performing to a capacity crowd at the Punchline in January, Bryan Cook’s Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction, returns to SF. The event features 10 comics, writing and performing Erotic Fan Fiction pieces, based upon their whims or audience suggestions.

The lineup includes special guest Baron Vaughn (LA) as well as San Francisco favorites Nato Green, Jules Posner, Caitlin Gill, Ivan Hernandez, David Gborie, Jesse Elias, Kevin O’Shea, Sean Keane and Natasha Muse.

Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction was originally founded in Seattle, and is now held monthly at the Nerdist Theater in Los Angeles, CA. It has been featured as part of the Noise for the Needy Festival (Seattle) Bridgetown Comedy Festival (Portland) Riot LA (Los Angeles) SF Sketchfest, and will be at the upcoming Just For Laughs fest (Chicago.) A podcast culled from the live show is debuting in 2013.

Laughspin.Com called CEFF “…One of my favorite comedy shows I’ve ever taken in. Period.”

[There’s so many things that make this show a no-brainer to go to. For starters, it has assembled some of the greatest perspectives/voices of the Bay Area’s comedy community: everyone is coming with a very skilled, very defined style. Secondly, I don’t know the outcome of January’s Sketchfest shows but LAST YEAR, two amazing champions were crowned with David Gborie and Sean Keane (whom will do battle at this event). Thirdly, the absurdity of so much filth is extremely cathartic. Fourthly, just fucking go.]

Show Review: The Business 4 Year Anniversary (4/17/2013)

It’s t-minus fifteen minutes. The audience remains translucent. 49-seats of emptiness connects two pools of light. In the lobby Wigglesworth, nicest cyberpirate, watches the door with French bulldog, Wellington, lazily laying nearby. Across the moody, barren strait, a smattering of chattery, the loudest voice belonging to Bucky Sinister.

Bucky has probably heard some offensive assumptions: stocky, tattooed, downplayed dapper with freshly cut, slick hair. In the avocado-green room, with suspended livery and hoarded horrors, the sensitive badass is a kingly raconteur, bouncing lively in badinage with two of the night’s guests, neighborhood chocolatiers.

The Daily Show, local anti-political performance art, pranks. A rich colloquial confluence of rolling anecdotes from legitimately interesting San Franciscans with one exception. Nato Green, native through in through, slinks into a sleeve of his own design, iPhoning with a casual aloofness. “Do we have two mic[rophones] ready?” Nato leaks. Bucky exits to check, leaving Green to pre-interview with ebbing/flowing soccerdadcoach excitability.

Sean Keane arrives ‘round eight, complimented on his “Let It Be” McCartney-ness before being whisked away by the natural chaos of live production. Comedy isn’t glitz, it is gridiron exhibitions containing a lot of audibles. Caitlin Gill arrives. It’s t-plus eighteen minutes. In a matter of thirty minutes the once husky belly of the Dark Room Theater is now paunchy and groaning. Baron Vaughn — “Way less famous than he should be,” spouts Nato — is running late, and everyone seems even keel about it. Hasn’t anybody told the showrunners that it’s their fourth anniversary, an occasion worthy of silk, flowers or at least punctuality? Why does everything seem like business as unusual?
