Marc Maron, former San Francisco resident and striking comedic figure, is playing at the Punchline. The San Francisco Bay Guardian has an excellent article about Mr. Maron you should check out. Really cool pictures. He’s a cool guy.
If you’re unfamiliar with Marc Maron, I suggest you check out his Rooftop Comedy page and his podcast: “WTF w/ Marc Maron” , especially the Judd Apatow and Louis CK episodes. They’re riveting examples of the comedy obsessed getting their dues.
Also on the show is one of the best comedians in the Bay Area: Janine Brito. Every time I’ve seen Janine she’s killed me inside and out. Awesome perspective, perfect poise, and the conduit of my favorite story: Tia Celclia. She also said the funniest four phrase I’ve heard all week: Mary Poppins Purse Snatch.
So if you’re not doing anything this Saturday, reader, and you have a bit of money, reader, go check out Marc, Janine and Ryan Singer (whom I’m unfamiliar with but by virtue of his position, I know is probably very good).
I would have found out first hand how good all three were together last night but Bank of America had my account on empty, and the show sold out.
