Sunday April 5, 2009 / 8:00pmSF Comedy Showcase
How was your experience?
Pros: Overall, there was a consistent stream of laughs. The lineup was a mix of just beginning comics as well as those who have been doing a national circuit. It's a pretty small venue so you can get a good view from pretty much anywhere. Ample parking in the financial district Cons: 2 drink minimum ($4 for fountain, $8-$10 for mixed drinks), although they didn't really seem to keep track of how many drinks we ordered Food is expensive, and no Fries???? Chips and salsa is $7.75, Nachos 9.75, pizzas $10+ Audience, at least the night I went, was more reserved and older so felt bad for the comics at times because it was a tough crowd. Because it is a showcase, there's a set time-limit, so you feel like the comedians can't really get into their material and when you do find one you really like, they have to get off stage for the next one.
