This week, The Business regulars are stuffing your enchiladas with baguettes as we welcome a bill of guests that would have Napoleon III plieing in his grave hard enough to knock off the sugar skulls.
Clara Bijl is visiting us from The City of Angels, but was born in The City of Light. PARIS, FRANCE. She was raised in the Alps, attended schools in Germany, Switzerland, and South Carolina; then one day, she moved to The City that Never Sleeps to begin a career in stand-up comedy. Performing all around the Big Apple and the rest of the country, she became a prolific writer of cutting, witty, internationally flavored comedy.
She will truffle your butter.
Frankie Quinones is a rising star to search for and catch. He is a founding member of For The People Comedy, is a collective of artists who share a common goal of producing colorful events fueled by positivity and laughter. Always maintaining a diverse lineup to represent San Francisco culture through high energy shows filled with humor and music. Frankie has also toured with some of the industry’s top headliners including the legendary Paul Rodriguez, and has performed for our troops overseas in Japan, Europe, and the Middle East.
He is also quite dapper. Muy rico suave.
This show is gonna feel like French kissing a churro. It’s gonna be like peeping on the Dos Equis guy with a French maid. It’s gonna make you wanna escarGO(silentT) see more live comedy!!! EIYIYI!!!! (I’m sorry)
Grab $5, your burrito and your beret and come join our fantastic guests and all the regulars! (except Alex, who we wish well in the wilds of the Northwest. If you are reading this in Tacoma, Washington- go see his shows this weekend at the Comedy Underground!)
3/14. The Business @ The Dark Room. 2263 Mission St. SF. 8PM. $5. Featuring Josh Gondelman, Emily Fleming, Kaseem Bentley, Sean Keane, Alex Koll, Chris Garcia, Chris Thayer, Caitlin Gill, and Bucky Sinister
The Business is happy to welcome the hilarious Josh Gondelman to the show this week. Josh hails from Boston, but currently lives in New York City. For such a sweet and lovable former preschool teacher, he knows a surprising amount about gangsta rap. He won first prize in the initial Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta, and has performed at festivals such as SF Sketchfest, Laugh Your Asheville Off, and the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival. His debut CD is called “Everything’s The Best,” and was produced by Rooftop Comedy. You can follow his consistently stellar Twitter work at twitter.com/joshgondelman.
As if that weren’t enough East Coast flavor, we’ve also got comedian Emily Fleming visiting from New York. And we’re also happy to welcome back Kaseem Bentley, local favorite and insult comic extraordinaire. The San Jose Mercury News called him a “comic to watch,” and Chris Garcia once called him “the last King of Scotland.” You’ll call him “hella funny” or possibly “Rick Ross’s half-brother.”
We’ve also got a full cast of regular Businesspeople: Chris Garcia, Caitlin Gill, Sean Keane, Alex Koll, Bucky Sinister & Chris Thayer. As always, admission is just five dollars, because we’re the best bargain in town.
2/1. The Business @ The Dark Room. 2263 Mission St. SF. 8PM. $5. Featuring Sheng Wang, Sean Keane, Bucky Sinister, Caitlin Gill, and Chris Garcia.
Surprise! Sheng Wang is on The Business this week. Fresh off a weekend of dominant performances at Sketchfest, Sheng Wang returns to The Business this week. You may have seen him at the Punch Line, at Kevin Allison’s RISK! storytelling show, or in line at Arinell’s Pizza. Mr. Wang is a native of Houston, Texas, but came of comedy age in the Bay. His Comedy Central half-hour special premiered last year, and he’s also appeared on Live At Gotham and toured with the Comedians of Comedy. He’s a frequent guest to the Business, where he has also exhibited his photography. Is there anything this dude can’t do?
We’ve also got Chris Garcia, Caitlin Gill, Sean Keane, and Bucky Sinister rounding out the lineup. Admission is still five dollars, and you can bring in your own burrito if you like - I’m pretty sure Sheng will be bringing in his.
