Video of the Day: Reganomics

A lot of raw, foul-mouthed comedians have spoken potentially offensive or dangerous rhetoric onstage over the years. Brian Regan is not one of those comedians, and that's a guarantee. The Miami-born funnyman has boyish looks, even in his mid-'50s, which contributes to the somewhat wholesome image that has fared him well through dozens of late night appearances with David Letterman and his own Comedy Central specials.

While four-letter epithets or questionably racist bits won't be a part of this act, Regan will pick apart his own insecurities, shortcomings, and ailments without mercy. Nothing is off-limits when it comes to himself, including embarrassing emergency room visits and sad dietary restrictions. When he reveals such mundane personal details, he draws his audience even closer. Call it a different sort of shock comedy.

Regan overshares for public amusement August 31 at 8 and 10:15 p.m. (as well as Sept. 1) at Cobb's Comedy Club, 915 Columbus (at Mason). Admission is $45.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
