Ricky Luna has been on fire over the last year. Completely rude, outrageous, courageous, offensive, and captivating… Ricky has been knocking over audiences of every race, class, gender, and orientation. Speaking from his diaphragm, Ricky is extremely genuine and it shines through with electric Technicolor clarity. Tonight is his first headlining gig and frankly, he deserves it. Nobody goes into The Rouge, the Blue Room, the Stud, Brainwash, and beyond and receives the same warm reaction to his brand of vulgarity. If you don’t know Ricky Luna, then I’m sorry for you, but here is your chance. This guy is buzzing and if that’s not enough, he’s literally removed me from my seat with his comedy. The kid is powerful. Go to Il Pirata to experience it.

FRIDAY - SPEECH THERAPY 5th ANNIVERSARY/TONY SPARKS BIRTHDAY @ IL PIRATA

Once again Its on! Speech Therapy is back at it! Celebrating its 5th year anniversary as San Francisco’s hottest Monthly Stand Up Comedy Showcase! This show represents the pinnacle of Speech Therapy’s ability to sustain the most consistent showcase in San Francisco. For the last 5 years, Kiko Briez has constantly produced shows that have been epic, and that have spawned the Comedy Careers of many Bay Area Comedians, as well as those in LA! With the assistance from the Legendary Tony Sparks, this production has outlasted many of the fly by night shows that have sprouted up in the city, within the last 5 years. What makes this night even more meaningful, is that this show will also be Tony Sparks Birthday celebration. Everyone will be in the building, paying homage to Speech Therapy as well as Tony Sparks. Co-Hosted by the very funny Daryus Monday and the very talented Chris Ayag, this show will be blazing from the start! Also featuring the very hilarious Comedienne Marcella Argeullo, who is also the Producer of the Fresh Kids of Comedy show, which just sold out the Sacramento Punchline recently. Also on the bill, is Brian Yang! An up and coming comic who is also a member of the Fresh Kids Comedy production, who is sure to kill it once the mic hits his hand! Speech Therapy will also be unveiling its first and only Resident Comic in its 5 year history! Jabari Davis people! Coming off of a year of Epic proportions, Jabari Davis (front runner for Comic of The Year in 2011), has been blazing trails in Business, as well as a Comedian. Singlehandedly credited with bringing an economy to the San francisco comedy scene, all while cornering the market with his unique Point of View, and natural comedic style! Never says the same thing twice; also the producer of Jabari Davis and Associates wknd series at The Purple Onion. Sold out every month! This will be a night worth putting on the calendar, all of this talent for free!! Speech Therapy does it again!

(ALSO DANCING!)
