W Kamau Bell

Just like skinny jeans, superhero movies, and celebrity weight loss, racism continues to make a comeback. In 2007, The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About An Hour, the wildly acclaimed one man show by Rooftop favorite W. Kamau Bell, opened big and came out swinging against big targets. The Curve has enjoyed a three month run in San Francisco (SF Weekly and 7×7 Magazine named Kamau, “Comedian of the Year!”), and has been all over the country, including Oakland, Berkeley, Los Angeles, and is currently enjoying an extended run at terraNOVA Collective’s 7th Annual soloNOVA Festival in New York City through June 4th. Visit Kamau's website for ticket information and to watch free clips of the Curve.

Hari Kondabolu

This clip features the later years of Hari Kondabolu. The professor of the early years has morphed into a campus radical. Bringing fire and heat and punchlines. He has a degree in Human Rights and yet he does stand-up comedy, because he loves you. Or at least he will ove you, if you'll just listen to him.

Joe Klocek & a heckler on stage. (07:39)
Joe Klocek

Joe Klocek is a San Francisco comedy legend, and this clip shows him doing what he does better than any comedian that I have ever seen. He's holding the entire crowd in the palm of his hand, while he takes a heckler apart, piece by piece. And he manages to mix in some politics at the same time. This is how we do it! This clip is mythic in SF.

Marc Maron

Marc Maron has been one of stand-up comedy's best since back in the day, but people are now realizing it, because of his brilliant podcast, WTF. This interview is him promoting the thing he thought was going to be the thing before his new thing. Get all his albums and podcasts. Even though this isn't a comedy set, it does feature Marc at his most "Marcness.
