Videos of the Day: The Comedy Stars Pro Showcase

Categories: Comedy

For the last few years, the Rockit Room was the center of live entertainment in San Francisco's Richmond District, a place in the Avenues where musical stars of all genres could find comfort. Though club recently morphed into Neck of the Woods, it is keeping its tradition of hosting live music and stand-up comedy showcases.

The Comedy Stars Pro Showcase, however, is no open mic night, instead featuring seasoned vets of the San Francisco scene such as Bob Sarlatte (the annual emcee of San Francisco's Comedy Day), Michael Meehan (a comic/painter/sculptor), and Will Durst (who podcasts with former Mayor Willie Brown). Host Danny Dechi claims not only to be a comedian, but also the world's only pencil musician, with no erasers required. Expect astute observations about life in the wonderfully freaky Bay Area and an honest and unflinching dose of political absurdity.

The Comedy Stars Pro Showcase starts at 8 p.m. on Jan. 15 at Neck of the Woods. Admission is $8.
