Match Game SF in the Mission This Saturday!

February 25, 2011

Come and check out one of the best game shows of the 70s as it makes its way back to the present-day Mission!  I’ll be one of the panelists on Match Game SF this Saturday, so come watch me and the rest of the panelists struggle to come up with safe-for-TV words to refer to racy anatomical features.  I’m sure Sister Roma will set everyone straight and have the last laugh.  As a special bonus, use the discount code ‘MatchGamePanel’ to get $2 off advance on BrownPaper Tickets!

In case you’re wondering what Match Game SF is all about:

Sean Keane on CMT’s ‘Next Big Comic’

February 7, 2011

Country Music Television, an undeniable authority on the discipline of stand-up comedy, has chosen SF’s own Sean Keane as a contestant! Now, I’m not sure how “country” he really is, but he does have a joke about mullets.

Sean Keane performs every Wednesday at the Dark Room theater on Mission and 18th as part of the Business along with Chris Garcia, who you’re already a fan of. A bunch of us went last week and let me tell you, it’s the best $5 you’ll spend on a Wednesday. Ok, second best.

Here he is doing a bit on the SF Giants:

Vote for him here, because the rest of those contestants don’t even live anywhere near you.

I love leeks.

You’ve seen Portlandia by now right? If not, I think you’d better watch all of their web clips right now.

Say, someone should pitch a sketch to Portlandia showing people posting on a blog about how they are surprised you haven’t heard of it yet.

‘Greetings From the Mission’

January 21, 2011

If I was better at Photoshop, I’d throw a 1950’s postcard style “Greetings from… the Mission” over this baby, but you’re just going to have to use your imagination.

A little background on this lovely photo from Chris Garcia:

If you don’t remember Chris, you probably ought to see his hilarious stand-up bit on the Mission we posted a while ago.

Separate But Equal

Reader Aimee C. (winner of our Mission Bikes messenger bag giveaway) spotted this sign the other day:

I saw this sign at Altena Restaurant.  The mission continues to get oddly specific, aye?

Aye! And just in time for MLK Day!
