Come spend an intimate evening enjoying unadulterated stand-up comedy with some of the best comedians from the Bay Area and beyond at Cheaper Than Therapy! Get your prescription for comedy filled each Saturday! You’ll get a healthy dose of laughs every Saturday at San Francisco’s historic Shelton Theater. Come learn that laughter really is the best medicine.
Produced by the formidable comedic trio of Eloisa Bravo, Scott Simpson, and Jon Allen, the show offers you an evening of great stand-up comedy, as well as access to a wide variety of reasonably priced alcoholic beverages. And while we can't vouch for the long term results, we can guarantee that it'll always be Cheaper Than Therapy!
Come check in with us at the box office downstairs when you arrive. The bar opens at 9pm and the show starts at 10pm, so come early for cheap drinks and great seats!
While everyone is welcome at the theater, the show is really only appropriate for mature audiences, so 18 and up is strongly advised due to the adult nature of the material. Hey, it is stand-up comedy after all.
After the show, everyone over 21 is welcome to join us for an after party at the neighborhood bar!
We're celebrating our second year of bringing the best stand-up comedy to Bay Area audiences, come, join us!
