Local actor screwed over by Will Smith's "Happyness"

Posted By on Fri, Nov 2, 2007 at 11:06 AM

Nice that Will Smith got so much recognition for playing a struggling San Franciscan in the 2006 film The Pursuit of Happyness. But what about the plight of an actual San Franciscan -- a local actor named Peter -- in pursuit of a little recognition for being in the film itself? Griffshow offers this hilarious short doc called The Pursuit of a Credyt, focusing on poor Peter and a mighty slight by Will Smith, for your Friday comedy viewing pleasure. – Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
