Ronn Vigh’s nine year show at Harvey’s is in danger of being cancelled after a costumer complained about “hate speech” (entirely fabricated according to Ronn). Tweet @SFHarveys #SaveComedyInTheCastro or email Steve@harveyssf.com to show support for the room and urge them to continue.
The Business moves to a new night and location, leaving its Mission district roots for Hemlock Tavern.
Tonight is the Last Funny at the Flower as the venue is closing.
Now We Are Friends has moved from Sunday to Friday.
