SFWeekly’s Best of San Francisco 2013: A Comedy Perspective

Every year around this time has a fervor of excitement in the Bay Area comedy community. San Francisco is a crown hub of stand-up, a respected market for art and culture, and a mecca for a certain kind of comedy fan. It’s the soup: where the transcendent feed and microcosms emerge and evolve. That being said, it’s also a place with little industry, little structure, and massive turnover. Trying to get noticed, trying to become accomplished, is an arduous, lonesome, unappreciated task. That’s why, during this time of year, a progress report of sorts really sets the year’s tone for a select group of performers.

SFWeekly recently published it’s “Best of” collection of articles, and, as always, a motley group of comedians got the nod (and boost) of recognition.
