Office Star 

Out of the Office

Wednesday, Dec 23 2009
When is the warehouse crew on The Office going to be developed? When will Darryl be promoted and take a desk next to Andy, or get caught sending shipments of weed through the loading dock? The actor who plays him, Craig Robinson, appears for three nights at Cobb’s, one of them New Year’s Eve — perhaps he’s underused. Hollywood directors, however, know exactly what they have in the actor: Robinson has been in roughly four films a year for the past four years, including Pineapple Express, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and Night at the Museum. And next March, he’ll show up in his first starring role with Hot Tub Time Machine, which, despite its desperate lunge for Snakes on a Plane–naming buzz, also stars Rob Corddry and — here it goes off the rails — John Cusack, who all go back in time to an '80s ski resort to make jokes about the '80s. Comedy ... gold? We hope so, for Cusack’s sake. (What are the odds he hoists a boombox?) Tonight, however, catch Robinson where he’s been turning heads since the beginning: the standup stage.
Thu., Dec. 31, 7 & 9:30 p.m.; Fri., Jan. 1, 8 & 10:15 p.m.; Sat., Jan. 2, 8 & 10:15 p.m., 2009

  • 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.'"
