If I don’t do this, right now, I will be murdered by Juan Medina. I said that I’d cover his brainchild—the PM Show with Juan Medina—and I’ve been going through some shit, but I’m oddly optimistic about comedy at the moment SO HERE. WE. GO!
The PM Show with Juan Medina is a glorious commercial for effort. There’s free beer and food, a jazz band (the time I attended), a pop up Japanese game show (with Scott Simpson), a hilarious sidekick (Jesse Hett, again, the time I attended), and host Juan, culling all that together while experimenting wildly with hats and voices (i.e. characters). For all the energy and tangible—if not awkward—success, the one thing the show needs is patronage, a money holder, a big bucks supporter. All the tenates of a truely novel San Francisco is there, and I could imagine classyish twentysomethings really getting a kick out of the frenetic energy (and muscle-relaxing jazz). Alas, the PM Show continues its run without the attention it deserves, from the press, from its intended audience, and, ultimately from you. 

The show takes place the fourth Friday of the month in the Grotto performance space in the Sports Basement at 1590 Bryant St. San Francisco, Ca. This show is free & features free beer (21+ with valid id) Doors at 6, show at 6:30.
