Birthday Boy, oh Boy

Comedy shows in bars can be an odd mix, especially when a birthday or bachelorette party means lots of stiff drinks and dildos strapped to the heads of the women tearing it up in their final hours before marriage. These giggling “dickheads” can be a comedian’s worst nightmare, as the rest of the audience tends to be tangentially aware that someone else is also performing laughable acts. The clown onstage tries to eke out a living, meanwhile, begging you to take his (or her) wife. But Ronn Vigh, the host and producer of Harvey's Funny Tuesdays, wouldn't stand for that. He says his brash demeanor has brought comparisons to a young Joan Rivers, adding, “well, if she was male, gay and didn't start shooting up Botox by the bucket.” Also, Vigh has had a birthday party at this venue, in which a cadre of his favorite funny gals celebrated his special day from the stage. Regardless, Vigh's lineups always include San Francisco comics of many stripes. The stiff drinks and celebration are a guarantee, but the headgear is up to you.

  • 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.'"
