Podcast: RIFF-erendum with Steven Pearl and Al Clethen. Episode: Rick Overton. Download Link: Here. iTunes Link: Here. Official Link: Here

Rick Overton is hands down one of the best riffers and kickass funny performers in all of comedy as well as being a regularly working actor. Whether tearing up the stage by himself or with Robin Williams (their comedy jams are legendary!) among others he’s worked with or appearing in movies like ‘Willow”, “Groundhog Day” and “Mrs. Doubtfire” and TV shows like “The Office”, “Seinfeld” and “General Hospital” (And that’s just a short list of his accomplishments!) he always brings his best game and you always remember him. I got to interview him when he was in town doing a show at the Throckmorton Theater with Robin and we had a nice talk.

[Papa Overton knocks the self-defeat out of Pearly’s palms in a very inspiring episode of the ‘Riff-erendum’.]

Snob Theater: The Short Concert Film is a small dose of the atmosphere that was the monthly comedy variety show Snob Theater that ran for 2 years in San Francisco. The film stars Coree Spencer, Chris Thayer, Shanti Charan, Steven Pearl, Drennon Davis, Rick Overton, Debbie Neigher, and Laura and Anton of Foxtails Brigade. It’s produced and hosted by Shawn Robbins, and directed by Scott Oller.

Snob Theater started as a small monthly variety show at The Dark Room Theater in San Francisco’s gritty and historic Mission District. It blossomed into a critically acclaimed series and a unique outlet for the best comedians and musicians to pass through SF and perform smart and interesting material.
