Creator of Not a Genuine Black Man, the longest-running solo show in San Francisco history, the multi-talented Brian Copeland mounts his third one-man production, The Scion, an incisively funny look at class inequality. With his razor-sharp wit, Copeland examines the events surrounding the infamous Santos Linguisa Factory triple homicide, in which the sausage dynasty's scion gunned down three meat inspectors as they attempted to enter the facility. Walking the line between comedy and tragedy, Copeland turns the microscope on the privileged few that believe themselves to be above the law. An author, comedian, radio and TV host, Copeland also recently starred alongside Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson in the film The Bucket List and is the creator of the critically acclaimed solo show The Waiting Period.

Quotes & Highlights
- “Franken is that rare species -- an independent thinker with a healthy sense of the absurd and a complete and utter lack of political correctness. Not to mention being funny" --<em>SF Gate</em>
- "Best Comedian" --<em>SF Weekly</em> "Best Of"<em> </em>
Will Franken’s new solo show, Grandpa It's Not Fitting, showcases the San Francisco’s most outrageous comedian's takes on topics ranging from the sacrosanct (therapy, Burning Man) to the erudite and obscure (Noam Chomsky and moral relativism). Audiences will get a look ahead at the final broadcast of the Christian faith held in Westminster Abbey, as well as a sneak preview of the hit Broadway smash Mrs. Wit. They'll stop and visit everybody's favorite political prisoner, Too-koo Moo-moo, and if there's time, log in some flight-hours with 9-year-old airline pilot Captain Griffin. There will be some political chants from the Common Book of Chants, and everyone will get all nice and screwed up and cheated out of their life savings by the Lord of Scientology.
Will Franken is celebrated as one of the most innovative performers to come out of San Francisco in recent years. Armed with what the New York Times describes as a "highly developed sense of the absurd," he brings life's inherent weirdness to the stage, poking fun at a broad range of cultural strongholds. Franken recently made his television debut on "The World Stands Up," a showcase of UK, American and Australian comedians. He has also appeared on Air America's "Marc Maron Show" and was a semifinalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Competition. Franken performed his last solo show, Good Luck With It, to capacity crowds in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
