I did not enjoy this performance. The comedy was poor quality. If this group is an example of a popular Bay Area comedy group, I will not plan on attending comedy performances!

Quotes & Highlights

“The closest thing the Bay Area has to its own Second City.” —San Francisco Chronicle


Killing My Lobster is a San Francisco sketch comedy group and film production company. Voted Best Laugh Factory by the San Francisco Bay Guardian and two-time winner of the Best of the Fringe Award at the San Francisco Fringe Festivals, Killing My Lobster has produced over two-dozen theme-based comedy shows. The group has also made 14 short films that have screened at over 40 film festivals including Sundance, and the San Francisco International Film Festival where the Lobsters took home a Golden Spire Award.

Since the Lobster’s first show in a 25-seat converted office in the Mission on Valentine’s Day, 1997, Killing My Lobster has worked with over 300 Bay Area actors, writers, directors, designers, filmmakers and musicians to create exciting original work for local and national audiences. Killing My Lobster shows regularly include live bands, thematically coherent through lines, and an emphasis on high-production values. The material is created collaboratively which results in a range of comedic styles that fuse raucous slapstick with sharp satire, wacky monologues with indulgent musical numbers and once in a while gives rise to a slide show about cats and nuclear physics.
