During a live podcast recording at last year's SF Sketchfest, Kevin Smith regaled the audience with adventures of his rectum, and talked about how he was caring for the family dog who was so close to death that everyone else had given up on her.

And while those are not the typical go-to subjects for a comedic performance, filmmaker Smith -- best known for flicks like Clerks, Chasing Amy, and Dogma -- imbued them with an honest and honestly funny sensitivity. He even opened up on the painful topic of being discriminated against because of his size, as he infamously experienced when he was asked to get off a Southwest Airlines flight in Oakland in 2010. His ability to be unflinchingly personal allows for a genuinely refreshing type of comedy; it's a nice surprise from the man who is so often typecast as his character Silent Bob.

Kevin Smith returns as part of the Plus One Podcast Wednesday, Feb. 6 at 8 p.m. at Cobb's Comedy Club, 915 Columbus, S.F. Admission is $25.

  • 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.'"
