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:
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.
“Leeks are the corn of winter[!]” Ha! So true!
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.
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:
Sheng Wang took this photo of local comedians at Dolores Park last summer.

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