Roach Gigz - Pop Off

| 2 comments

I went into the Hype Men podcast yesterday and had a lot of fun talking about my hip-hop history and the Bay Area. In fact, I'd say I had hella fun. Sent me down into YouTube, listening to tracks by the hottest MC repping San Francisco right now, Roach Gigz. This one was a favorite.

We had a really fun show last month as part of San Francisco Sketchfest, thanks to everyone who came out, our great performers and interview guests, Sketchfest and the Eureka Theatre. If you missed it, it's all here for you in convenient podcast form.

Baron Vaughn is a standup comedian who splits his time between LA and NYC. You can also see him on the USA series "Fairly Legal".

Kasper Hauser is, of course, one of our favorite sketch groups and an important part of the San Francisco comedy scene. You can subscribe to The Kasper Hauser Podcast on our site to hear more from them.

We also have a chat with Steve Dildarian, creator of the HBO series The Life and Times of Tim (you might know several of his Superbowl Budweiser spots, among many other commercials, created in his former life as an ad man). (Transcript)

We brought on the very funny writer, actor, and director Bobcat Goldthwait to talk about his latest directorial effort, World's Greatest Dad, why he quit standup comedy, and setting the record straight on some of the past antics. (Transcript)

And, in case that wasn't enough -- we had a great musical set from singer-songwriter John Vanderslice, whose new album White Wilderness is out now (go buy it!).

Our pals in The Kasper Hauser Comedy Group are teaming up with our pal Mike Birbiglia for a veritable Laugh-a-Palooza in San Francisco on October 19th. KH will be doing sketches, Birbigs will be sharing funny stories and everyone will be LAUGHING THEIR ASSES OFF.

Tickets for the show, which is at the Palace of Fine Arts, are on sale now.

If you're not in the Bay Area, you can check out Mike's full schedule here. The tour also features dates with other great pals of ours like Jen Kirkman and Nick Kroll.

A-1 Charizard

I've known A-1 since he was watching Pokemon, and now he's flipping the theme song from Pokemon for this excellent track. He grew up on my block, and our families were (and are) close friends. He's the same age as my little brother, and they've been tight since they were like six. This is a hot record. I'm proud of the little guy (who's like 20 now, so I shouldn't call him a little guy anymore).

A Match Made In Heaven

The other day, Mike Birbiglia called me. It's always a pleasure to hear from Mike, who's just as nice a guy in real life as he seems on stage, but in this case, he had a specific issue that needed addressing.

He'd just heard Kasper Hauser's This American Life parodies. His question was simple: "Are they as funny in real life as they are on these audio bits?"

Yes. They are.

"So, do you think they might want to open for me in San Francisco?"

Yes, I'm sure they would.

"Do you have their number?"

Yes, I do.

And it was settled.

Kasper Hauser are opening for Mike at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco on October 19th.

Be there, or be square.
