Snob Theater | June featuring Lia Rose and Kelly McFarling
Snob Theater is a one of a kind show that combines performances by today's best in indie rock with equally feted stand-up comedians. Originating at San Francisco's Dark Room Theater, Snob Theater creates a magnet for smart and entertaining performances and provides a unique and exciting atmosphere for the lucky audience. Produced and hosted by comedian/music blogger Shawn Robbins, Snob Theater showcases the comfort of the performers as they take chances in a stripped-down setting. Musicians have included the likes of Sean Hayes, Jonah Matranga, Emily Jane White, Foxtail Brigade, Con Brio, Picture Atlantic and Judgement Day, while the comedians range from local favorites to stars of Comedy Central, Chelsea Lately, and HBO. Each show is also not without a special guest or two. So you never know who you'll see at Snob Theater...
Snob Theater has also been featured in events with Yelp, Noise Pop Festival, and Bridgetown Comedy Festival.
"Snob Theater is genius. It's a beautiful and truly awesome fusion of great comedy and great local music. I came out for Snob Theater a little while back and was beyond impressed. It was such a fun concept and housed in the Dark Room it's got a ton of character."
- Jessica T., Yelp.com
" When I reluctantly performed on it a few months ago, I quickly realized the "Snobs" know what they're doing. I don't know how they know, but the show and the flow of show between musicians and comedians is Tony the Tiger quality grrrrrrrrrrrreat! It doesn't really matter who's on the show, it's just a cool mix. The whole is greater than the sum of its blah blah blah. You get it. It's like Voltron."
- W. Kamau Bell, SF Weekly + The W. Kamau Bell Curve
"The Snob Theater showcase at The Hawthorne Theater (at Bridgetown Comedy Festival 2011 in Portland, OR) was pretty solid gold."
- Alison Hallett, Portland Mercury
