Comedian Ngaio Bealum joins us to discuss early days in the San Francisco comedy scene, one nighters in Montana, Comedy Competitions, and weed.

[This is so dope. I’d just love to see a retcon sitcom where teenage Ngaio and Margaret are running through SF as feral teenagers on drugs and culture.]

witsradio:

Yay! Congrats, Margaret!

[Coincidently, I’ve learned a lot from Margaret Cho. I also know she’s a down ass lady. Can’t wait to see this project materialize.]

Courting Comedy Spotify Playlist: (10/4/2013)

I’m a little late on this one so here’s some backtracked tracks of Bay Area Comedy Gold available on Spotify:

1. Sean Patton by Holy Fuck Comedy. Sean Patton has a fabulous album — 2012’s Standard Operating Procedures — that’s unfortunately unavailable on Spotify. The only result for Mr. Patton’s persuasion is from the recently released Holy Fuck Comedy compilation and it’s a bona fide doozy. Riffing turns of histrionics with a exuding presence and groove: Patton is on another planet. 

2. Gay Porn by Margaret Cho. Our beloved, native faghag princess has been on the forefront of comedy and culture for as long as I can remember. Her story of her brother’s vengeance-inspired fish bowl defacing still ranks high as a childhood memory. This piece, taken from her SF-housed special “I’m The One That I Want”, offers a great prelude her upcoming shows at the Nob Hill Masonic for her “MOTHER” tour.

3. "Dating Aggressively" by Marc Maron. A modern folk hero, everyman made “made man”, deft self-destructor. However you perceive the Renaissance WTFer, he’s made a prolific niche that includes “This Has To Be Funny” and that’s recently expanded with "Thinky Pain".

4. Chelsea Peretti by Invite Them Up. Chelsea Peretti is another comedian making the Bay Area proud on a consistent basis be it stand-up, writing, sketches, or stealing the show on FOX’s new series, Brooklyn Nine Nine. And I mean STEALING the show. I look forward to her first full-fledge album. 

5. Smile by Rory Scovel. I was in the room at this show’s mirror. In the vault is a version of Dilation, performed at the San Francisco Punch Line in 2011, with a loud comedian/blogger billowing with laughter. Nevertheless, Rory Scovel’s Dilation ranks as one of my favorite albums, period, made even sweeter by its forging close to home.
