Balls Cost Money: Donate To Local Comedians Killing My Lobster

Posted By on Wed, Dec 22, 2010 at 10:44 AM

This just in: a (kind of) impassioned plea from a burrito, a snowwoman, a BLT, and more to reach out this holiday season by donating money to support local sketch comedy troupe Killing My Lobster, which is hurtling hilariously toward its fourteenth season as a relief organization: "relief in the form of laughter. Relief in the form of jobs for local

artists and classes for writers and comedians looking to hone their

craft." Also relief in the form of telling like it is about the foibles of our fair city, including coffee snobbery and the siren call of the East Bay and how every would-be parking spot is a goddamn driveway.

Even if you don't donate, enjoy the above video, which ought to give you some handy ideas about low-budget costuming. We bet Grandpa will totally freak if you go home for Christmas dressed as a burrito.

Might be freakier to go dressed as turkey or a ham, though. Submit your Christmas costume ideas on Twitter @SFAllShookDown, or hit us up on Facebook.

  • 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.'"
