2/21. Karinda Dobbins HEADLINES the PM Show @ Sports Basement. 1590 Bryant St. 6:30pm. Free. Featuring OJ Patterson, Josh Argyle, Jason Dove and hosted by Juan Medina.
[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.]

I run a very fun show in Oakland on Thursdays. Here is an excerpt. Will you be there soon?

"OJ & The Blerds of Baltimore" by OJ Patterson (ojpatterson). Recorded Live @ 1772 Market St in San Francisco.

I hate self-aggrandizing self promotion on this site due to an ever-evolving sense of pride and disillusionment. Nevertheless, I’ve put hours of editing (wanted to caption for my hard at hearing brothers and sisters) into a two-and-a-half minute clip after years of people asking where they could see my stand-up. I’d like to say thanks to kollinholtz and Jabari Davis for recording and producing this clip as well as cosplayingwhileblack for supplemental resources. Also, thanks to #blerds everywhere for making the world less lonely. 

Please feel free to spread this video and find me on Twitter for jokes and show dates

A no band, long night at Stork Club got weird (as always) albeit in an entirely foreign way. My little brother performed stand-up comedy for the first time. I’m not the funniest in my family. I was never perceived as a potential comedian by my family, too quiet and bookish. Ortavius on the other hand, had the natural clowning affability associated with the collective unconsciousness’ projection of “comedy”. I celebrated my 4th year of stage-standing on 12/3. My brother, four years my junior, debuted on 12/12. It was fun watching something so new and familiar, the shakiness and awkward first steps, as a grizzled old host on the sidelines. I have no idea if the great experiment will continue with my young kin, but I’m glad I finally have something to be older-brotherly about for my precocious little twerp. Let the nepotism commence!
