The Setup October 28th

Event has passed (Fri Oct 28, 2016 - Fri Oct 28, 2016)
The Beer Basement - Ales Unlimited
8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


The Setup is back at 222 Hyde with your hosts Richard Sarvate and Abhay Nadkarni.

The Setup is an underground stand up comedy show located at The Basement in the heart of San Francisco. This venue was once the green room for the legendary Blackhawk jazz venue. Miles Davis snorted coke in this room. That's comedy feng shui.

Check us out here:

We feature established comedians from around the country as well as local up-and-coming stars. Our goal is to provide a truly raw alternative experience. San Francisco is known for indulging and incubating the absurd whims, oddities, and genius of the freaks who call it home. Think Lenny Bruce, Robin Williams, Jefferson Airplane.

The show always ends before 10:00pm so there is plenty of time to watch the show, do something afterwards, and then catch BART or MUNI.

The show is every Friday and Saturday. Come early for great seats because the shows fill up quickly.
