March 12th: Our 2 Year Anniversary Show!!!
Holy cow! The Mission Position is having a birthday! March 12th will be our TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW!!! And because it’s our special day, we have packed the show with some of our favorite comedians in the whole world: Scott Capurro, Joey Devine, Ray Molina and Michael Cella. Tickets are $10 and can be reserved in advance by calling Lost Weekend Video at (415) 643-3373. The show will begin at 8pm.
Tickets can also be purchased online through Eventbrite.
The Mission Position is a popular independent comedy showcase, hosted by four of San Francisco’s most accomplished comedians – Matt Lieb, Kate Willett, Trevor Hill and Jessica Sele. Every Thursday, audiences fill Lost Weekend Video’s famous CineCave comedy den, for a show that provides club-level talent without irritating drink minimums or filler comics. The Mission Position welcomes a new lineup of special guests every week that include the Bay Area’s brightest comics alongside nationally touring headliners from NBC, TBS, E! and Comedy Central.
“…the best comedy bargain in SF.” –SF Gate
Named one of the “Top 10 Events in San Francisco” by Time Out World (November 2014)
“The next great San Francisco comedy tradition.” –Courting Comedy
Scott Capurro was reared in Daly City, California; at age 3, he swam the English Channel. Since 1993, he’s avoided AIDS by telling unsavory jokes in every English speaking country. Scott is trusting and thus surrounded by duplicity, yet he continues challenging himself, because he’s physically challenged and emotionally unstable.
Described by San Francisco Weekly (free press, edited by lesbians and designed by trannys with large hands and hidden agendas) as “stand-up in the very best possible sense – deadpan, ever-alert and hilarious”
Scott has appeared in Mrs. Doubtfire, where, effortlessly, he played a homosexual; and Star Wars: Phantom Menace, where, breathlessly, he wore a body stocking.
Scott knows David Cameron (wink, wink) and Nelson Mandela. Well, he’s met Nelson once. They’re both vegetarians. Actually, Scott is. Nelson said he was, to impress Scott. Cameron eats anything.
Joey Devine is from the San Francisco Bay Area. He is the the head writer for Yahoo.com’s “Broken News Daily,” and you may recognize him from a McDonald’s commercial that airs on IFC during Portlandia reruns sometimes. If you’ve ever been to the San Francisco Punchline, Cobb’s Comedy Club, or his weekly show “Move Along Nothing To See Here: A Free Comedy Show” at The Night Light in Oakland, you might have seen him do stand up before. He’s pretty good at it or whatever.
“Ray Molina, what can I say about me, I’m not that good looking, I’m not that tall, but I do care about you and want you to feel less alone in this world. I also want to talk to you so please say hi to me whenever you feel like it. I can help you feel better if you are sad, I will hug you if you tell me you need one or just want one.”
Michael Cella has a playful outlook on life and uses it to make silly points about complicated subjects, poking fun at serious issues without ever making a point. He’ll leave you feeling like you thought real thoughts about real things, but all you did was laugh. Michael as opened for Guy Branum, Dan Gabriel, and David Huntsberger, and those guys have been on TV.
