You Look Nice Today!


I have gushed a lot about our friends (left to right) Merlin, Scott and Adam and their great show You Look Nice Today, which is really wonderful and great.

They joined us last week at The Monsters of Podcasting Tour in SF, and they've finally posted the results.

Richie Cunning, Ashkon and PUTS in SF


I didn't even know that my high school friend Richard had a second life as rapper Richie Cunning until he emailed me yesterday. I didn't even know he rapped. I should become a rapper. It seems like fun.

Anyway, Richard aka Richie Cunning and our man Ashkeezy are opening for West Coast hip-hop stalwarts People Under the Stairs on Thursday night at the Independent in San Francisco... a great place to see a show, walking distance from my old apartment.

Whether or not you live in the Sco, you can download Richie's new single, "The City," which is a fantastic tribute to the best city in the world. Also, the N Judah. I think my first single's going to be about the 49 Van Ness-Mission.

Yay Area Representatives: MEETUP IS TONIGHT!

You'd better go to the Edinburgh Castle to check out Mary Van Note's awesome show "Comedy Darling," featuring MUSIC from TSOYA favorite Brent Weinbach, who in a previous life was a professional pianist! You can also check out the Edinburgh Castle, the only pub in San Francisco that is VERY CASTLE-LIKE.

More info HERE.

"End racism... in about an hour!"


Our old pal W. Kamau Bell (remember his piece Sarah Silverman is Racist?) has a gala show coming up in the East Bay (that's the San Francisco Bay Area, sorry Tampa) called The W. Kamau Bell Curve. Kamau's a great comic, but I rarely post show-specific notices here, and I wouldn't have in this instance if it weren't for this policy: "Tickets $20; bring a friend of another race and your friend gets in free."

Now if that's not an awesome ticketing policy, I don't know what is.

The show's are March 1st and 2nd at the JCC East Bay in Berkeley. Buy your tickets online here.

John Mulaney in San Francisco


I don't usually plug local comedy shows on the blog, at least ones in which I'm not involved as a sponsor, but I thought I'd make an exception. New York comic John Mulaney will be co-headlining San Francisco's Punchline tonight through Saturday, and he's dynamite. He's the best kind of alternative comic -- the kind that takes the craft seriously and has lots and lots of great, suprising jokes. I'd compare him maybe to Dana Gould, another comic who blends the worlds of traditional club comedy and alternative stuff. John takes well-grounded premises and spins them out until they're surprisingly silly, but never self-indulgent. He's a very young guy, younger maybe than me I think, and he's still polishing his performance style, but he'll be a big name in comedy if he doesn't quit to be a big-money writer. I've heard good things about his co-headliner Amy Schumer as well. The Punchline is a great club in which to see a show, and if you're lucky, you might run into MaxFunster/sometime doorman Bucky Sinister.

Tickets available online here.
