Tomorrow night marks my first show as a comedy producer, and oh my, it's gonna be a hootenanny! The Heuristic Squelch Comedy Experience kicks off at 8:30 (Doors, 8:00) at Blake's on Telegraph. The legendary John Hoogasian headlines a stellar lineup, featuring SF's finest comics: Reggie Steele, Ali Wong, Chris Garcia, and Julian Vance. Hosting the show is your humble author, Sean Keane.
The show is 18+, and there is no drink minimum. However, Blake's on Telegraph wants me to remind everyone that they have a large, well-stocked bar, and everyone should feel free to eat and drink a lot. After all, if you don't drink at least one gin-and-tonic, haven't the terrorists already won?
