Courting Sketchfest: The Chris Gethard Show [28 Days Left]

[Grassroots and infectiously cult, TCGS has becoming a raging redwood from a hapless sapling. It’s won kudos from all over, has created an alarmingly loyal fan base, and is being courted by Comedy Central. It’s impossible to predict what’s going to happen at the Eureka Theater on February 8th but i know San Francisco will be game to get weird.]

"The worrying starts in the first minute of the show, as NEIL HAMBURGER hacks his throat clear into the microphone and rasps out his first ‘zinger’ of a gag. It’s immediately clear this won’t be an easy one to watch. Hamburger is a pained figure, whimpering between jokes, sighing audibly. Hamburger is disgusted at himself, you see, for dispensing this filth but not as disgusted as he is at Britney Spears, David Carradine and the US band Smash Mouth." - The Guardian UK

[Holy Shit Readers! We’ve hit the 10-year-anniversary for Club Chuckles, San Francisco’s premiere left-of-center comedy producers. For whatever reason, we treat 10-years of anything to be of utmost importance. Much to our benefit, Club Chuckles is rolling out the red for an absolute steal for comedy nerds. Two cult figures — one local, the other national — in the intimate stomach of Tenderloin’s favorite rock club, without the pressure of drink minimums and silly “going out clothes”. Highly recommended.] 

Barbary Countdown: Night Train with Wyatt Cenac [16 Days Left]

[I love Wyatt Cenac’s relationship to this City. Not only is he featured in The Daily Show, the fuel for leftist discontent (that is an element of the Bay Area’s identity), he’s a lead actor in one of best love/hate cinematic mixtapes for San Francisco: Medicine for Melancholy. Wyatt, like a modern day Bill Cosby (who loaned $50,000 to the birth of blaxploitation), has always put money-to-mouth in regards to progressing African American expression (see: An Oversimplification of Her Beauty, (I saw it at the Roxie (pretty great))), a fact revered by Courting Comedy (hint, I’m black). While, Medicine for Melancholy — available now on Netflix — features many of the mumblecore trappings that make my blood boil, it’s a pretty awesome prelude to Cenac’s appearance this year’s Outside Lands Festival]
