"What is Picture This!?"

PICTURE THIS! is a new show from Sam Varela, Brandie Posey & Grif Kimmins: two girls & an animator who want to push the boundaries of what a comedy show can be.

12/28. Club Chuckles 10th Anniversary Bash @ Hemlock Tavern. 1131 Polk St. SF. 9pm. $5. Featuring Joey Devine, Donny Divanian, Jesse Elias, Caitlin Gill, Sean Keane, Chris Thayer and more. 

Outer-echeclon comedy showcase Club Chuckles is turning the ripe old age of 10. Launched in 2003 by Hemlock Tavern live music booker Anthony Bedard as a “Safeway Select”-style ploy to book less bands, Club Chuckles has achieved the cold-comfort distinction of becoming the currently longest-running “comedy-in-a-rock-club” monthly series in Americapresaging the alt rock/alt comedy crossover wet-dream of the 2000s, predating Patton Oswalt’s “The Comedians of Comedy” tour, and even birthing a comedy record label (Talent Moat). Club Chuckles also instituted the comedy world’s first-ever 10 drink maximum policy in the wake of the heckler uprising at Todd Barry’s impromptu crowd-work set at Hemlock in 2006. Sure, every late-to-the-party, ambulance-chasing Johnny Come(dy) Lately rock club is now trying to pad out their schedules with laffs & yuks, and the whole comedy-in-a-rock-club thing is now the toast of greater Brooklyn, but back in the early 2000s, this kind of programming nearly got Bedard sh*t-canned from his job until Neil Hamburger smashed the Hemlock’s all-time bar sales record.

11/16. Cynic Cave: Will Weldon @ Lost Weekend Video. 1034 Valencia St. SF. 8PM. Featuring Sean Keane. Hosted by George Chen and Kevin O’Shea. 
cyniccave:

Will Weldon is a comedian who currently resides in Los Angeles, CA. He has performed at the comedy festivals Bridgetown, Riot LA, and Just for Laughs, and has been written about in a number of comedy publications only read by those who are hoping their name appears in a comedy publication. He’s pretty funny.Also featuring Sean KeaneHosted By George Chen & Kevin O’Shea!


[I love Will Weldon. He’s the definition of proto-breaktrhough, analogous to a sure-fire start-up, with more “underground” buzz than a vibrating suppository. This is a highly recommended show because it’s a hell-of-a-lot more expensive to see this rising star a couple of years from now at the Punch Line. Also, I hear he’s hella good a Tetris]

10/4. iL Pirata Comedy 8 Year Anniversary @ iL Pirata. 2007 16th St. 9pm. Free. Featuring Jabari Davis, Tony Sparks, Rudy O, David Gborie, Frankie Quinones, Clay Newman, Sean Keane, Karinda Dobbins, Shanti Charan, Eloisa Bravo, Yayne Abeba, Anthony Medina.
[I don’t know a more underground gem in the City than the monthly comedy showcase at iL Pirata. It’s kind of intimidating: nestled in the amber-slick off shoot of Portrero Hill; a pub-ish maze of aged leather seats and old souls; an ambiguous round of chairs circled by booths; an inherent casualness bordering on uncertainty. It all requires a level of commitment, to settle down, to nestle, to anticipate. The show never starts early, the subsequent dancing is sometimes forgotten, but in between — especially on anniversary shows — is a solid block of gold. It’s the 3-hour comedy festival, the after hours Comedy Day, the alternative “Sunday Showcase”; it’s every San Francisco Bay Area tradition wrapped up into a single instance. Go early, stay for the long haul, have a few drinks and tell me iL Pirata’s Anniversary show is anything you’ve ever experienced before in your life. If you claim me “wrong”, you’d be a liar, a fool or both, but you’ll also extremely satisfied.]
