The Mission Position recently celebrated its 4th anniversary and 1 year at our new home in the Mission at The Alamo Drafthouse! This month with headliner Ismael Loutfi (Just For Laughs Montreal, Viceland)
The Mission Position brings the best comedians to the Alamo Drafthouse theater for a live comedy show that provides club-level talent without a drink minimum. Hosted by two of San Francisco’s most accomplished comedians, Adrian McNair and Irene Tu (featured on Viceland, KQED, Seeso, SF Sketchfest and Bridgetown Comedy Festival). Every month The Mission Position puts together a new lineup of special guests that include the Bay Area’s brightest comics alongside nationally touring headliners from NBC, TBS, E! and Comedy Central.
Ismael Loutfi is a sweet boy with a kind face. He’s been called “gifted,” “quick-witted,” and a “neurotic toe-rag” by numerous friends’ parents. Underneath that sweetness lies a deeply acerbic sense of humor- the sort of thing you might develop growing up a Muslim in rural North Florida. Now living in Atlanta, Ismael’s take on Islam, racism, and his own shallow insecurities quickly made him a favorite of the city’s exploding comedy scene. In 2016, he placed 4th in the competitive Laughing Skull Comedy Festival. A month later, he went on to be a New Face of comedy at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and was the critic’s pick for “Best Comic on the Verge of Super-stardom” by Atlanta’s Creative Loafing magazine. He can be seen on the VICELAND series Flophouse.
