7/21/11. Comedy & Cocktails @ The Purple Onion. 140 Columbus Ave. SF. 8 pm. Free. Featuring headliner Kevin Camia, Katie Compa, Sam Davidoff, Danny Dechi, Joe Gorman, Liz Grant, Drew Harmon, and Jackson McBrayer
Comedy & Cocktails is your opportunity to experience San Francisco’s thriving stand-up scene. This is the show where established comedians try new things and hone their material. If you love the art of stand-up, this is the place to be.
The headliner for July 21st is Kevin Camia. Kevin won most outstanding rising stand-up star at the 2009 Rooftop Aspen Comedy Festival. He’s had several high profile TV appearances including Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham”, AZN’s “Asia Street Comedy”, Rooftop’s Aspen Comedy Festival, and the SF Sketchfest. His dry wit, hilarious social satire, and thought-provoking ruminations make for a killer stand-up act. Don’t miss!
I’ve just been given the unfortunate information that the Madrone Art Bar Happy Hour Comedy Show has been discontinued. It’s been a fun year-and-a-half; kudos to Jules Posner, Katie Compa, and Nick Palm for operating a show in a cool venue. May, two dollar beer fill the cavern of our hearts.
Today is a good day. We are alive. Also, it’s Katie Compa’s birthday. Katie is stellar comedian with polish, poise and posh. She’s a bit sneaky at times, throwing tags at the audience like ninja stars with excellent timing. She also has a knack for making common grievances very relatable. Sadly, she’s moving away soon but not before she celebrates another year of living. Happy Birthday Katie.
