[Hand to Mouth Comedy is a unique fish in the bastion of creativity known as the City by the Bay. Most comedy shows purport primed performers providing pristine proclamations promoted by practice. Hand to Mouth toss it all out of the window. The thematic stand-up confluence guarantees freshness: acts shelved in lieu of new material – sometimes of atypical trajectory — to say succinctly what may never be said again. A thrilling challenge, a platform for enlightenment, a break from the norm, Hand to Mouth crystallizes the experimental, unearthing new gems along the way.]

7/11. The Barry Sobel Skype Birthday Show @ Dark Room Theater. 2263 Mission St. SF. 10PM. Featuring Chris Fairbanks*, Myq Kaplan*, Brandon Wardell*, Jeremy Talamantes, David Studebaker, Trevor Hill, Dro Know, Danny Dechi and more. Hosted by “Birthday Boy” Barry Sobel. (*Appearance via Skype)

Sobel, host of "The 3 Minute Talk Show", produced by Tom Hanks and currently seen on Hulu, will be performing as well as introducing his favorite comedians dropping in via Skype live during the show.
Barry, “Its gonna be like a Fake TV Taping/Play/Skype and Stand UP- Birthday Party-Awards Show.”
Scheduled to appear..
From NYC - Myq Kaplan ( Conan, Letterman ) 
From DC - Comedy Powerhouse and Festival Darling Brandon Wardell 
From LA - Chris Fairbanks ( Fuel TV )
Along with SF upstarts Jeremy Talamantes, David Studebaker, and Trevor Hill performing in house.
During his recent stay back in the Bay, Barry has been embraced by a new era of comedians, many of whom will be making cameo drop

ins during the show. Dro Knows, Mean Dave, Danny Dechi and many more will be rounding out an insane line-up of comedy, all for only $5 bucks in advance ($7 at the door). And did we mention it’s a birthday party as well?!

[Barry Sobel has been making waves in the Bay Area for the last few weeks, to the adoration or chagrin of entire community, which is ironic due to his instrumental splash three decades ago. The 80s, where acts were fast and loose, persona was pristine and comedy was almost an organized criminal racket. It’s very rare to see an elder statesman from that time. When the bottom dropped out of the business people either returned to being ultra famous, abandoned home for greener pastures, did a complete career about face, dropped the habit all together or dropped into the ground. RARE, to see a comedian 100% committed, hungry, aching with independent moxie and enigmatic charisma. Additionally, comedian parties — birthdays, going-aways, key — are the definition of high fructose powder kegs as everyone gets drunk and feuds bubble over. So basically, this is a one-of-a-kind event that postscript anecdotes will fail to match its magic. Check the video below for a taste of Sobel’s brand of revelry]

Show Review: The Business 4 Year Anniversary (4/17/2013)

It’s t-minus fifteen minutes. The audience remains translucent. 49-seats of emptiness connects two pools of light. In the lobby Wigglesworth, nicest cyberpirate, watches the door with French bulldog, Wellington, lazily laying nearby. Across the moody, barren strait, a smattering of chattery, the loudest voice belonging to Bucky Sinister.

Bucky has probably heard some offensive assumptions: stocky, tattooed, downplayed dapper with freshly cut, slick hair. In the avocado-green room, with suspended livery and hoarded horrors, the sensitive badass is a kingly raconteur, bouncing lively in badinage with two of the night’s guests, neighborhood chocolatiers.

The Daily Show, local anti-political performance art, pranks. A rich colloquial confluence of rolling anecdotes from legitimately interesting San Franciscans with one exception. Nato Green, native through in through, slinks into a sleeve of his own design, iPhoning with a casual aloofness. “Do we have two mic[rophones] ready?” Nato leaks. Bucky exits to check, leaving Green to pre-interview with ebbing/flowing soccerdadcoach excitability.

Sean Keane arrives ‘round eight, complimented on his “Let It Be” McCartney-ness before being whisked away by the natural chaos of live production. Comedy isn’t glitz, it is gridiron exhibitions containing a lot of audibles. Caitlin Gill arrives. It’s t-plus eighteen minutes. In a matter of thirty minutes the once husky belly of the Dark Room Theater is now paunchy and groaning. Baron Vaughn — “Way less famous than he should be,” spouts Nato — is running late, and everyone seems even keel about it. Hasn’t anybody told the showrunners that it’s their fourth anniversary, an occasion worthy of silk, flowers or at least punctuality? Why does everything seem like business as unusual?
