San Francisco Stand-Up Comedy Competition
Friday, September 11, 8:30pm
Can this legendary annual event really be celebrating its 40th anniversary? Yes, indeed. Its eternally youthful producers, Anne and Jon Fox of San Rafael, once again have spent the earlier part of the year seeking out promising acts they’ve heard about through the grapevine as well as viewing unsolicited submittals from hundreds of ambitious comedians who know success in their event generally means a successful career to follow. Just ask Dana Carvey, Louis CK, Ellen DeGeneres and Patton Oswalt, to name but a few alumni. Fifteen worthy talents will each perform a seven-minute set, similar to the time allowed performers on “The Tonight Show.” A past finalist will host.
