"What is Picture This!?"

PICTURE THIS! is a new show from Sam Varela, Brandie Posey & Grif Kimmins: two girls & an animator who want to push the boundaries of what a comedy show can be. Picture This! is a live comedy show with stand-ups performing while they are drawn live by some of the best animators, cartoonists, and other artists in Hollywood, CA NYC and Portland. With the recent addition of our international producer, Alex Rock, Picture This! has also debuted in Toronto, New Zealand and Australia!

1/21-23. Kris Tinkle CD Recording @ San Francisco Punch Line. 444 Battery St. SF. 8pm. $15. featuring Julian Vance and Caitlin Gill. Tickets Available: Here. Goldstar: Here.

Kris Tinkle is good. Really good. Great in fact. I really enjoyed his debut album, released five-ish years ago. He’s a working class, to the point, quintessential comedian that developed into a regional headliner before uprooting to New York City a while ago. His style — bombastic and lewd, yet personal and deprecating — favors the weekend “fun” crowd, and he’s never been fully embraced as a media darling. Still, Kris Tinkle is very funny and someone to lend ears, eyes and support this week at the Punchline.

Courting Sketchfest: A Salute to Bored to Death w/ Jonathan Ames, Ted Danson, Zach Galifianakis and Jason Schwartzman @ Marines’ Memorial Theatre [8 Days Til Fest]

[Hey, I’ve never seen this show. I only got my girlfriend’s sister’s HBOGo password last July (fuck me). Nevertheless, this recently announced show poses the biggest swerve in Sketchfest schedule (if you Zach it, they will come). Also, the show — which, again, I’ve never seen — is an ode to film noir. If there’s on thing that San Francisco takes pride in is its fictional detectives (see: Monk, Bullitt, Eddie Murphy, and the works of Dashell Hammett). Catch these tickets while you can, boppers.]

Laughspin Podcast Live!
@ SF Sketchfest
Saturday, Jan. 25 at 4 pm
w/ guests Natasha Leggero, Brett Gelman, Sara Schaefer and guest co-host Lauren Ashley Bishop (@sbellelauren)

Tickets here!

1/16. Jamie Kilstein @ Throckmorton Theatre. 142 Throckmorton Ave, Mill Valley. $16. 8PM. Tickets Available: Here.

Jamie Kilstein, co-host of Citizen Radio brings his fiercely political comedy to the Bay Area this week. His necessary and non-apologetic rifts will probably crack you up with the byproduct of working to dismantle oppression. With the Bay Area’s reputation of being a hotbed of political awareness, comics like Kilstein challenge lazy liberals and false progressive by not coddling or pandering with a cheap joke about how Republicans suck. Enjoy the hilarious yet informative clip above about the cis-privilege!

Podcast: Lady to Lady Episode 57. “She’s a Moneyball” featuring Emily Heller. Hosted by Barbara Gray, Brandie Posey and Tess Barker. Download Link: Here. iTunes: Here. Official Link: Here. Presented by MaximumFun

 Emily Heller (@MrEmilyHeller) joins the ladies to discuss New Year’s resolutions, self help apps, Facebook, sandwiches, jumanji, stoner food and more! Produced by David Janove, theme song by Zach Ames

[Exclamation! Lady 2 Lady has nestled under the wing of Maximum Fun (brainchild of SF Wonder Boy Jesse Thorn), raising their already high profile as go-to podcasters in the CC Offices (i.e. my apartment). I’d like to think and thank the comedy gods for making this debut so perfect; for a LA-based show this episode exudes Bay relevancy. You know what, fuck it, time to gush. Lady to Lady, in its excitable babble and unapologetic goof, is coming ro SFSketchfest (that’s right fucker of mothers*!) The Fest begins in 21 Days, bringing in an overdose of talent, including L2L (Live!) @ The Dark Room Theater on February 9th (last day of camp).

*note “fucker of mothers” was stolen from Johan Miranda]
