Whose routine reigns supreme? Next Monday, December 12th, I will be participating in an exciting, brand-new stand-up comedy event called Iron Comic. It is modeled on the cooking show, only with jokes instead of food, comedian Nato Green instead of food wonk Alton Brown, and an alcoholic barkeep instead of Chairman Kaga.
For those who have wanted to see me perform, but were dissuaded by the cost, fear not, for this show is free. For those who have wanted to see me perform, but didn't want to hear me re-tell jokes and stories you've heard hundreds of times already, fear not, for all the material at this show will be no more than twenty minutes old. For those who have wanted to see me perform, but couldn't drag themselves away from regular Monday evening boozings at the Gold Cane Bar on Haight Street, fear not, for this show is happening at that very bar!
While we Iron Comics are preparing our succulent banquets of hilarity, a slate of accomplished and funny local comics will be entertaining the audience. I only hope the secret ingredient is "speech impediments". The official announcement follows after the jump:
In the Joke Arena, There Can Be Only One Gladiator of Gag, Only One
Paladin of Punchline, Only One True Iron Comic!
FEATURING COMEDIANS ROSS TURNER, SAM ARNO, CHANTAL CARRERE, ALI WONG, NORA LAVELLE, AND NICO SANTOS
With Iron Comics Chris Garcia, Yayne Ababa, Ian Jensen, Lisa Myers,
and Sean Keane
HOSTED BY NATO GREEN
MONDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2005 9PM
GOLD CANE AT 1569 HAIGHT ST., SF

Here's the format: The Iron Comics will be given 20 minutes to write
2 minutes of material about a secret topic that they'll be given at
the beginning of the show. And we'll have three secret topics. We'll
have featured performers while the Iron Comics are writing.
The show is free.
