I saw him at Cobb's in SF, so between tough parking and long line to get in, give yourself extra time.

Jeff Garlin is a real character and is always enjoyable to listen to... even though his material is very rarely "honed." Though his improv work on "Curb" is top-notch, he's not so great with the typical theater improv format. The worst thing...continued

Was very ameturish. Sound was poor. Seemed liked it was thrown together at last minute.

This show was absolutely hilarious! Jeff Garlin is an amazing comedian and he was improvising most of the time. It was great!

I couldnt stop laughing the whole show.
Congrats Cobb's in its 25th anniversary!

More Information

Description

Comedian Jeff Garlin has a style of comedy that has much in common with the comedians of the ‘60s and early-’70s (among them, Shelley Berman, Mort Sahl, Woody Allen, and Richard Pryor). Garlin tells stories, exploring his personal foibles and exposing his innermost secrets for all to hear.

On television, Garlin co-stars and executive produces the critically-acclaimed HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” The show stars the creator of “Seinfeld”, Larry David, and recently won the 2001 AFI Comedy Series of the Year Award. Jeff spent three seasons on NBC’s “Mad About You” in the role of “Marvin.” Jeff has had his own HBO half-hour special. As a director he has directed both Jon Stewart (“Unleavened”) and Denis Leary (“Lock-n-Load”) in their HBO specials. Jeff has also directed “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

Jeff appeared in the Steven Soderbergh film “Full Frontal” with stars Julia Roberts and David Duchovny, and “Daddy Day Care” with Eddie Murphy. Jeff has a variety of TV and film appearances to his credit as an actor and a stand-up, including “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me”, “Bounce”, “Everybody Loves Raymond”, “The Late Show with David Letterman”, “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”, and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.”

Born and raised in Chicago and then South Florida, Garlin studied filmmaking and began performing stand-up comedy while at the University of Miami. He has toured the country as a stand-up, is an alumnus of Chicago’s Second City Theatre, and has written and starred in three critically acclaimed solo shows (“I want Someone to Eat Cheese With”, “Uncomplicated”, and “Concentrated”).

Jeff’s hobbies include eating puddin’ and taking naps.
