Interstellar blast; Barry Sobel is back to save the universe!
Bay Area Comic Legend and Pop Culture Icon, Barry Sobel returns to his stand-up comedy roots in the Bay… and introduces a new form of entertainment, The Skype Show.
Sobel, host of The 3 Minute Talk Show, produced by Tom Hanks and currently seen on Hulu, will be performing live in concert, along with his favorite comedians from SF. Plus dropping in via Skype, comedians from all around the world!
Hot off an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Sobel returns to his favorite all-time venue, for one night only, Sept 21 9PM at The Great American Music Hall. Along with Barry. David Studebaker, Drew Platt, Steve Post, and FC Sierra.

[I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that there’s nothing like the Skype Show. Surging through Barry’s idiosyncratic pallet, affable energy and internet connection, it places comedy in thrilling peril from an application of convenience. It’s amazing to see so much commitment spoken into the void of a web camera, and entertaining to see the host (and cast of characters) scramble against the inherent technical difficulties.]
