Two of the godfathers of hilarious, edgy political comedy come to the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre to make you laugh while you think. Known for his explosively funny, controversial and politically charged routines about race and current events, Paul Mooney is considered a living legend in the comedy world, having written for Richard Pryor, Robin Williams, Sandra Bernhard and Whoopi Goldberg. He's also been a writer for the TV shows Sanford and Son, In Living Color and Chappelle's Show. Dick Gregory has used his comedy and social satire as a form of political activism, and his activist efforts have extended to more serious pursuits outside of comedy as well. Discovered in 1961 by Hugh Hefner, Gregory went on to perform nationally and on television. He earned a place on Comedy Central's list of the 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time. Learn More
The Bay Area’s unique vocal harmony competition, the Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival, presents its Bay Area Regional event hosted by last year’s Champions, jazz group Moodswing. This year’s competing groups include Dis Moi, HouseBlend, Ro Sham Bo, One of Each, UnderAge, The Blanks and 2004 Regional Champions Clockwork, who are returning for another shot at the title. The Blanks are a serious vocal threat; the group has a reoccurring role on TV’s “Scrubs” as “Ted’s Band,” and one member is also a regular on “Desperate Housewives” (which fact may or may not have anything to do with singing ability). Equally noteworthy are UnderAge, the 2005 “International Young Women in Harmony Rising Star Champions” of the Sweet Adelines International Organization.
