The Business March 30th 2011, "Cantrell-Versial" Edition

Image
The final Business show in a triumphant month of March features special guest Rob Cantrell! Rob made his standup comedy bones in his adopted hometown of San Francisco before leaving for fame and fortune elsewhere. Said fame and fortune includes "Last Comic Standing," "The Marijuana-Logues," and a performance film - "Metaphysical Graffiti – A Road Movie" - that screened at the Cannes Film Festival. He's a contributing writer for High Times magazine, and he's got an album called "Keep On The Grass," which was recorded right here in San Francisco.

We've also got Chris Garcia, Bucky Sinister, Sean Keane, and Chris Thayer, along with comfortable theater seating, and convenient access to Cancun Taqueria. As always, admission is just five American dollars. See you there, America.

The Business March 16th 2011 "Bucky's Gotta Brand New Book" Edition

Hey guys, it's another grand edition of The Business. This week, Bucky's new book shows up!

Still Standing is another self-help book in the tradition of Get Up, his previous title. It's about addiction and recovery but with his trademark humor and sarcastic wit.

Last Gasp will be there selling books so we should be able to take credit cards. But It's always easiest to bring good old fashioned cash. Confederate script not accepted. War's over, rebel army.

Also joining Bucky are regulars Chris "The Cuban Divac" Garcia, Sean "Pooh" Keane, and Chris "Mind Flayer" Thayer. Actually those aren't their nicknames, but would be pretty cool if you ask me.

The Business, March 9th 2011 "The San Francisco Shuffle" Edition

The Business pulls a fast one this week, as we jettison three regular business men, welcome three irregular special guests and install a new “intern”

...and we do it all for you.

Alex, Chris and Sean are off to make the world outside the Dark Room smile, while Buck holds down the fort with the following delightful additions:

Beth Stelling visits The Business from Chicago, hoping to make San Francisco as a-flutter about her as her home town is. She was named the Best Stand-up Comedian by The Chicago Reader, The Chicago Tribune has listed her as a “Comedian to Watch” and she’s the youngest comic listed on Comedy.com’s “Top 20 Stand-up Comedians in Chicago”. All this while stealing the show at Just For Laughs Chicago and running a popular show called “Entertaining Julia”

Just Morgan (not to be confused with championship skimboarder Morgan Just) is in her own words “A 58 year old transgendered woman just telling the truth...” And what truth it is. Morgan is a favorite at Har…

The Business, March 2nd 2011 "THE Jarrod Harris" Edition

Image
The Business is kicking off the month of March with special out of town guest Jarrod Harris!

Mr. Harris is visiting us from Los Angeles, but he's originally from the Deep South. By "Deep" we're referring to the part of the south Nietzsche is from. Atlanta!

You may have seen Jarrod on the 4th season of Comedy Central's Live at Gotham. He placed 4th in the San Francisco International Comedy Competition and he was recently awarded a "Best of the Fest" nod at the 2010 Detroit Comedy Festival. But wait. There's more!

We'll also have 3 out of our 4 regular cast of characters you've grown to love: Bucky, Chris, and Sean. Alex will not be in attendance. He'll be at the San Francisco Punchline featuring for Chris Hardwick. Fancy!

As always, our show is only $5 and starts at 8pm. We are no longer BYOB (Thanks, Al Qaeda!), so consider shotgunning a two week old Kombucha and grabbing a Cancun Burrito from across the street. Aztec style!
