Keeping comedy alive in the Mission


This Thursday night at the legendary Verdi Club! Read all about it:

Verdi Wild Things Are is a new comedy show on the 2nd Thursday of the month with a rotating lineup of special guests.

After the tragic demise of The Business at the Dark Room Theatre and the Cynic Cave at Lost Weekend Video, four alumni of those legendary shows set out to keep experimental standup comedy alive in the Mission District by uniting to form a might comedy Voltron at the venerable 100-year old Italian social club, the Verdi Club.

In July we’ll be featuring guest comedians Arjun Bannerjee, Allison Mick, Jesse Hett, and Mikey Walz.

Here’s a little more about the hosts:
