Upcoming Shows

Best of San Francisco Comedy Competition

Saturday January 20th, 8:00 pm

In a new twist to the famed San Francisco Stand-Up Comedy Competition, 2017 winner, Ellis Rodriguez of Sacramento, will come to the home town of 2016 winner, Alex Elkin of Eugene, for a special “passing of the crown” show on Saturday, January 20 at the Wildish Theater. Legendary “marijuana comic,” Ngaio Bealum, a past finalist himself, will also be on hand to host the festivities.

Beginning in 1976 when Robin Williams placed second, the SF Comedy Competition has been credited with providing an important showcase for an array of future stars, including Dana Carvey, Ellen DeGeneres, Marc Maron, Patton Oswalt, Rob Schneider, Sinbad and, perhaps regrettably, Louis CK.

“It only took 41 yeas to conceive of going to the hometown of the outgoing champ for a special event to mark the changing of the guard,” noted event producer Jon Fox, who too will be present this night. “Oh well, better late than never. You know this is going to be a blast with a bit of mini-competition occurring between these two amazing talents."
