Covered CA Comedy 

Wednesday, Mar 12 2014

A quick search on Google found high rates for professional therapists. Family counselors start around $120 an hour, and psychiatrists with a medical degree go up to $350. At rates like that, Cheaper Than Therapy really is what the title suggests. The brainchild of Sean Keane and Eloisa Bravo, Therapy is a night of comedy dedicated to the act of catharsis, where fear, pity, and other pesky emotions are purged through extreme laughter. The show features Keane and Bravo at the top of the bill, as well as co-producer Jon Allen, who has written for Wired Magazine and Rachel Maddow's blog. Given the theme, we expect the group to dump a lot of baggage from failed relationships, horrible jobs, and the travails of dealing with obnoxious people. "But the benefits aren't limited to those on stage," the group says. "As the punchlines pile on, you too will discover that laughter is the best medicine." Let's hope so, because actual medicine is pretty expensive.

  • 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.'"
