Live Comedy For You

If you’re anywhere near Mill Valley, California, which is up in Marin County across the bridge from San Francisco, go see my buddy Will Franken do his thing. It’s a unique, one-man, theatrical comedy show the likes of which you’ve not seen before. Once you’ve seen Will do his thing, you’ll go back again and again. I guarantee it.

Will Franken’s Last Stateside One-Man Show: “Bright Yellow Circle”

Thursday, July 19th


The Throckmorton Theatre

142 Throckmorton Avenue, Mill Valley, CA

$18 general ($21 day of the show)

Probably best to buy tickets online — there’s been a lot of interest/momentum churning about this appearance:



Will Franken Friday Night!

The most original and intelligent comedy performer in America (that I know of) is performing Friday night at The Purple Onion in San Francisco. If you’re smart (and we all know how much you like to think you are) you’ll be there with your face pointed at the stage. I don’t recommend a lot of entertainment for my Jazz Pickles, but this guy is a sure thing. His material is amazing, his performance is jaw-dropping, and his tickets are cheap. What more do you want? (The correct answer here is “nothing more, thanks.”)

Go see Will perform and thank me later. Go to this link and click the video on the right for a small sample of the kind of rapturous strangeness you’re in for. And without even asking Will, I can assure you that all of the material you see on Friday will be new. The guy is more prolific than any living homo sapiens and well over 99% of the dead ones.

Oh Comedy All Ye Faithful

Once again, my precious Bizarro Jazz Pickles, I come to you with tidings of possible gladness and joy. That is to say, if you follow my advice, you’ll be damned glad and hella-joyful.

The prince of awesome himself, Mr. Will Franken, is performing in the San Francisco sector twice this month. You must see them both, because if I know Will, they’ll be entirely different shows.

Go here, witness the birth of comedy, bring some frankincense or myrrh, tell your friends: Big Damn Fun!

Epic Live Comedy is Awesome

Because my own meaningless life has been hectic, I’ve been remiss in telling you about the amazing Will Franken’s latest live comedy opus, “Second Sandwiches.” If you’ve seen Will perform before, you’ll rush to get your tickets now. If you’ve not, you’re missing a rare kind of genius. Do your brain a fave and go to The Purple Onion in San Francisco this Saturday night.
