Will Franken's "Grand Opening Of A New Baby"
You are cordially invited to Will Franken's "Grand Opening of a New Baby".
It's a great baby. Like a human pinata, it will be opened to the public this evening, Saturday, February 19th, at the Purple Onion Comedy Club.
That's right: SF Weekly's "Patron Saint of Misrule" and "Best Comedian" and SF Bay Guardian's "Best Alternative to Psychedelic Drugs" opens a brand-new baby!
The candy (or guts) inside the pinata (or baby) will spill out into your ears and minds and come back out as laughter. For the guts (or candy)of the baby (or pinata) are comedy bits. . .new and exciting comedy bits.
Like the man who visits his doctor for a brain tumor only to find out he has a cowlick.
A disgruntled spatiotemporal protester rails against the unjust occupation of the 18th Century by the corporate fat cats of the Present.
DUI convicts are sentenced to three weeks in Professor Hennessy Seagrams' "Comprehensive History Of Drunk Driving: From Ancient Macedonia to the Byzantine Empire".
In a very special, tear-inducing Okra Winfrey interview, a local loser finds meaning to life when Josh Davis adds him as a friend on Facebook--only to have his dreams thwarted when Josh defriends him a few weeks later.
And brilliant master of physics Stephen Hawking volunteers to help a friend move into a new apartment. One small item at a time--as his friend carries Hawking and his wheelchair up and down the stairs in the process.
All this and many more timeless Will Franken classics!
Master-of-ceremonies and local funnyman Shane Koon will be there to open the festivities. And Will Franken will be there to open the baby!
Grab an arm and pull. . .this baby's going to be opened!
