"Facebook is a graveyard for the friendships I failed to maintain."

Here’s the piece I read at Ivan Hernandez’s lovely short story showcase, Give Me Fiction. The theme was “POWER” (Ivan’s capitals, not mine).

(via give-me-fiction)

[This will be big. The good folks at the Cynic Cave continue to cement their numero uno spot as the best place to see great comedy the world over (with no drink minimums or exorbitant service charges). Be that as it is, some comedians fear retribution, blacklisting or poor standing with the LiveNation brass so they make moves in secret. You may or may not know the silhouette of the comic coming in, but her penchant for snazziness soaked in lushy wit will make you never forget the evening. Expect more pump for this show in the coming weeks, buy your tickets in advance.]

[Aside from being a regional native, an unrivaled critical darling, a mid-1990s SF comedy luminary, unapologetically unflappable in her career trajectory , and unencumbered by the politics of modern show business, Karen Kilgariff is absolutely hilarious. It’s amazing that she’ll be performing in SF’s cradle of indie comedy, and it’ll be deplorable for you to miss this show and call yourself a fan of comedy that matters. Do not sleep on Karen Kilgariff.]

Cynic Cave presents Ian Karmel

Ian Karmel is a comedian whose style zig-zags between the eclectic and the universal, appealing both to crowds who own homes in the suburbs, and crowds just staying with their parents in the suburbs until they figure some things out. Coming from an improv background, including time with The Groundlings and the Upright Citizens Brigade, Ian entered the world of stand-up with a unique perspective that helped him win the 2011 Funniest Person in Portland, 2010 Portland Amateur Comedy Competition and has given him the opportunity to perform at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, Austin’s Moontower Comedy and Oddity Fest, Portland’s Helium Comedy Club, Philadelphia’s Helium Comedy Club, Austin’s Cap City Comedy Club, Seattle’s Comedy Underground and Los Angeles’ Comedy Store. In addition to stand-up, Karmel has appeared on television, playing a character in IFC’s sketch show Portlandia and as a post-game analyst and commentator for the Portland Trailblazers. Since moving to LA from Portland, he is now a writer/performer on Chelsea Lately.

8pm show featuring Josef Anolin 
10pm show featuring Kelly Anneken

Both Shows hosted by George Chen & Kevin O’Shea 
$12

Tonight’s performance is made possible in part through a gift by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts through the YBCAway program

11/16. Cynic Cave: Will Weldon @ Lost Weekend Video. 1034 Valencia St. SF. 8PM. Featuring Sean Keane. Hosted by George Chen and Kevin O’Shea.

Will Weldon is a comedian who currently resides in Los Angeles, CA. He has performed at the comedy festivals Bridgetown, Riot LA, and Just for Laughs, and has been written about in a number of comedy publications only read by those who are hoping their name appears in a comedy publication. He’s pretty funny.Also featuring Sean KeaneHosted By George Chen & Kevin O’Shea!


[I love Will Weldon. He’s the definition of proto-breaktrhough, analogous to a sure-fire start-up, with more “underground” buzz than a vibrating suppository. This is a highly recommended show because it’s a hell-of-a-lot more expensive to see this rising star a couple of years from now at the Punch Line. Also, I hear he’s hella good a Tetris]
