12/8. Eric Cash Special Recording [2 SHOWS!] @ Lost Weekend Video. 1034 Valencia St. SF. Featuring Natasha Muse and Xander Deveaux. 

Eric Cash has had a rough year. After getting married and losing his wife to breast cancer in the summer of 2012, and then having to relocate to the Pacific Northwest to care for his father with stage 4 lung cancer in the early part of this year, his plans for his comedy career have repeatedly had to be set aside to deal with heavy, real world issues, and the madness that comes with mourning and trauma.But he’s refused to let those things stop him. Working material nightly at showcases and open mics for the last year and a half in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, and everywhere in between, he’s finally ready to set forth with the DIY comedy special he’d been planning since the spring of 2012.If you don’t know who he is, Cash is an outspoken underground comic who has performed all over the world, including the Edmonton Fringe Festival and the Melbourne Comedy Fest. His new onslaught of material is dark surrealism based in hard reality with topics ranging from creative ways to cope with PTSD to the nature of nightmares manifested in the real world.


[This show is a long time coming. Eric Cash has a story to tell and has a voice to tell it. Great openers, great venue, I highly recommend.]
