3/19-20. W. Kamau Bell’s “Oh, Everything! Tour” @ The New Parish in Oakland. 579 18th St. $20. Tickets Available: Here & Here.

Socio-political comedian W. Kamau Bell has emerged as the post-modern voice of comedy. Named an Ambassador of Racial Justice by the ACLU, his weekly half-hour FX comedy series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, premiered in August 2012 and became a critically acclaimed but criminally short nightly show in September of 2013 on FX’s new comedy network FXX. The NY Times called Kamau “the most promising new talent in political comedy in many years.” The show was nominated for “Best Talk Series” at the 2012 NAACP Image Awards and Salon.com listed Kamau on their “Sexiest Men of 2012” list, calling the series “surreptitiously revolutionary in its effortless diversity and humanism.” The San Francisco Chronicle raved, “it makes The Daily Show seem like something your dad watches.” Totally Biased was executive produced by Chris Rock, who became a fan after seeing a performance of Kamau’s one man show.

2/21. Karinda Dobbins HEADLINES the PM Show @ Sports Basement. 1590 Bryant St. 6:30pm. Free. Featuring OJ Patterson, Josh Argyle, Jason Dove and hosted by Juan Medina.
[YO! Sport Basement and the good folks at True Hustle Entertainment (Where the Hustle is the Truth) have a special place in SF Comedy lore. Their gracious amenities and off-center atmosphere makes for a tremendously ample entertainment experience. It’s like hanging out with that really rich kid; what’s the catch to their generosity? Nothing! Also, where do they get their fancy, rich-kid clothes? The Sports Basement, probably! The PM Show boasts a rotunda for the senses. Groove with your eyes, drink with your ears, laugh with your hearts. Plus, I’ve never been, so HEY!.

Karinda Dobbins, gracing the stage/performance area with a headlining set, is a comedian after my own heart. She’s smart, progressive, sharp and indomitable. It’s an honor to watch her, and a delight to witness the symbiotic nurturing between Karinda Dobbins and comedy, working together to enliven our world.]

[This bell will rung time and time again, not just by this blog, but, by the comedy community at large.

Sheng Wang will record his comedy album here Feb 19-22! #sanfrancisco #nottobemissed #415


[Sheng Wang should be way more famous. He’s already talented, respected, admired, credited and as close as one could get to being truly original. Still, despite all these things, I don’t hear enough casual praise, I don’t see enough t-shirts, I don’t feel that Sheng Wang is the cultural force he could be. Sure, some people can coax as the baddest muthafucka whose been stepped on twice (see: Robert Hawkins) but I’m personally looking forward to this album recording, one more step on the road to immortality.]
