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. The show is every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 10pm and every Sunday at 7pm. You'll get a healthy dose of laughs at San Francisco's historic Shelton Theater. Come learn that laughter really is the best medicine.

Produced by veteran comics Jon Allen and Scott Simpson, the show offers you an evening of great stand-up comedy, as well as access to a wide variety of reasonably priced alcoholic beverages.

Check in with the box office downstairs when you arrive. The bar opens an hour before showtime, 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 being 18 or older is required because of the adult nature of the material. Hey, it is stand-up comedy after all.

After the show, everyone over 21 is encouraged to come to an after party at the neighborhood bar.

Each week, Jon and Scott are joined by the three of the best comics from the Bay Area and beyond to bring you a fresh, exciting ~75 minutes of stand-up comedy.
