Tickets can be purchased online through Eventbrite.
The Mission Position is a popular independent comedy showcase, hosted by five of San Francisco’s most accomplished comedians – Matt Lieb, Kate Willett, Jessica Sele, Torio Van Grol & Adrian McNair. 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.

This Weeks Guests:
Lydia Popovich is a SF-based comedian. Her anecdotal humor and vivid storytelling make her a unique voice in a sea of dick jokes.

She’s a paid regular at Rooster T. Feathers, San Jose Improv, Punch Line SF, Punch Line Sacramento and Cobb’s Comedy Club.
She placed second in the 2014 She Devil Comedy Competition and has been featured in SF Sketchfest 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016. As well as the Women In Comedy Festival, Cape Fear Comedy Festival, Cabo Comedy Festival and the 2015 Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival. She also taught Derek Waters how to take a Jell-O shot on Comedy Central’s Drunk History.

Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters once touched her arm and said, “Hey, you’re pretty funny.”
The only things that bring her more joy than comedy are Dolly Parton and brunch.
