Very funny show. However I think the results might have been 'fixed'. A lot of money on Kyle Kinane came in to the Off Track Betting from overseas at the last minute, and wouldn't you know it he won. Suspicious.

it was just ok - Nato & Moshe were pretty funny - but process of hearing the other comics, chosing a topic, waiting it out...was kinda lengthy & annoying - it coulda been better organized - Shaun (the winner) was excellent!

Description

May 1, 2012: Guests include Kyle Kinane, Guy Branum, Ngaio Bealum, Chris Garcia, and Caitlin Gill.

The comedy of San Francisco native Nato Green is bookish, leftish, and Jewish. He has established an SF comedy institution popular with comics and audiences alike in_ Iron Comic_, his Iron Chef-spoofing game show, profiled in the San Francisco Chronicle. Iron Comic is a live game show in which 5 comedians rush to write a routine in 10 minutes from topics suggested by the audience. At the end of the night, an Iron Comic will be chosen. Inspired by Iron Chef, each comic is forced to craft jokes while the clock is ticking.
