[Really fun room, really hot line-up, and really cool idea. They’re taking the best comedians of the Be Funny nights on Tuesday (considered the premier open mic in the Bay), with DJ Abel Dee spinning dope hip-hop in between acts, and putting it on a Sunday night. Pretty novel East Bay experience if you ask me. Remember, Be Funny 365-6]
