The event promoters known as The BitchSlap are behind many a female-centric comedy showcase in San Francisco, but "Tough Titties" actually supports boobs, albeit slightly indirectly. The event is a benefit for Spark, a local non-profit working on a statewide women's health pilot program, and includes door prizes for extra fundraising. Shanti Charan, who is SF Weekly's reigning Best Stand-Up on the Way Up, leads the night with comedy from the perspective of an adult whose mother still babies her and wants to keep her in the womb, while Leslie Small offers inappropriate humor in an unexpectedly sweet package. Meanwhile, Gabby Poccia pokes fun at religion, death, losing "boob weight," and social media, and somehow finds a way to positively spin traumatic Muni experiences for an audience's enjoyment.

"Tough Titties" starts at 7:30 p.m. at Exit Theater, 156 Eddy, S.F. Admission is $15; visit

  • 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.'"
