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

This was by far the funniest man I've ever seen in my life. I've seen Paul Mooney multiple times, the late great Patrice O'Neal, Joe Rogan, Charlie Murphy and many others, but this was amazing stuff!!!
