Neil Hamburger, K-Strass, Major Entertainer Mike H
Club Chuckles, the Hemlock Tavern's monthly comedy night, presents Neil Hamburger (Drag City), The Kenny "K-Strass" Strasser Yo-Yo Extravaganza, and Major Entertainer Mike H.  There are two separate admission shows -- 7:30pm and 10:00pm.  Tickets are $12 advance/$15 door.


"Despite his appalling comic timing, muddled delivery, and cliched material, stand-up Neil Hamburger nevertheless emerged as one of the most acclaimed and name-checked comedians of his generation; like Lenny Bruce  before him, he was a hipster icon whose trailblazing riffs defied conventions at every turn, transcending the confines of hilarity with kamikaze recklessness. Prior to his ascendance, comedians were expected not only to be funny, but insightful as well; Hamburger changed all that forever." - Answers.com



In case you haven't heard about K-Strass yet, he's become known in recent months as  'the yo-yo Borat who keeps fooling dumb TV stations.'  It seems he claims to be a yo-yo champion who uses his skills to spread a message about environmental awareness. But once he's on the air, it becomes clear that K-Strass is not what he seems." - NPR.org

"A man calling himself Kenny "K-Strass" Strasser has fooled five Midwestern television stations into putting him on the air as a supposed  Yo-Yo expert.  When it comes time for K-Strass to demonstrate his yo-yo trick, he always finds a way to screw it up. The trick is on the TV station. Is this guy a modern-day Andy Kaufman or a freak who lives in his mom's basement?" - Minneapolis City Pages






Major Entertainer Mike H., a horror movie junkie and vocalist for electronic synth metal band Daiquiri, describes his show as a mixture of 'Stories, jokes, and songs' and says that he has been described on some blogs as the "world's 1st noise comedian."


Since December 2003, Club Chuckles the monthly comedy night in residence at San Francisco's Hemlock Tavern, has presented a harrowing, dazzling array of stand-up & sketch comedy mixed together with live music and bands, in a rock club setting.  A bated-breath mess of loving, loathing, orgasmic hilarity, painfully uncomfortable liminal moments, existential stuntwork, rank professionalism, seasonal amateurism, unannounced lafftracks, and a lot of other stuff you had no idea you'd ever sit still for until now. 10 drink maximum strongly enforced.

"Club Chuckles: a pivotal force in giving comedians opportunities to reach new audiences - people who regularly go to rock shows but rarely step into established comedy venues such as the Punch Line or Cobb's." - SF Chronicle
