The Root of Comedy
The Root of Comedy, a series where comedian Red Scott curates a night of comedic monologues from the very best that San Francisco has to offer.
This Tuesday, February 22nd, we feature EDWIN LI. Edwin began working as a comedian at the age of 16, barreling through five minute open mike sets and hanging in the wings of the Punchline, picking the brains of any funnyman that would talk shop. His earnestness and shameless curiosity have made him a favorite with comedy veterans and club owners alike. His rambunctious new set is a portrait of the wild, untamed energy of a young American man.
Edwin is a regular at the San Francisco Punchline and Cobb's Comedy Club and has been featured in the Golden Gate Xpress, on Yo! TV, UPN's Speak On It, as well as the prestigious SF Sketchfest and Las Vegas Comedy Festival.
As if that weren't enough, backing Edwin up are the four funniest people on the planet:
Jules Posner - Comedy at Madrone Lounge
Colleen Watson - is right behind you
Trevor Hill - whose impending murder is chronicled in http://pleasekilltrevorhill.com/
