What Does That "F" Stand For? 

Wednesday, Feb 13 2008
This was once comedian Ali Mafi's intro line: "America's only gay, fat, Muslim stand-up comic! Join me as I live what might be the most liberal life in history!" Funny, yes, but recently he's lost weight. Has it affected his brain? Probably not, since he still nabbed an opening spot for Marga Gomez at her New Year's Eve show. We don't really care whether he’s fat or not, as long as he still tells jokes about getting "rocked" and takes potshots at Mahmoud Ahmedinejad: Naturally, Mafi doesn't like the guy who claimed there were no gay Iranians, since Mafi is one himself. He appears at the virulently anti–Valentine's Day comedy show, T.G.I.F.F., which also features acid-tongued Yayne Abeba, 75-year-old Lynn Ruth Miller, and former bowling champion Ronn Vigh.

  • 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.'"
