Quotes & Highlights

Will Franken is “a comedic genius in the making.” —S.F. Herald

Description

What would comedy look like if it didn’t conform to the standard, “let me tell you about me and my weird life” formulas of traditional stand-up? What would it look like if it were cerebral, satirical and character-driven—if it belonged to that twilight realm where comedy meets performance art? What would comedy sound like if latte-swilling dotcomers and tattooed indie rockers could howl together at its sly jabs at high culture, low culture, drug culture, drag culture, white culture, black culture, Queer culture, multicultur(alism)… and Native American literature?

Had enough hypotheticals? We’ll get on with it … San Francisco comedian Will Franken is the answer (well, at least one answer) to mainstream observational stand-up comedy. Need proof?
