The Mission Position is a popular independent comedy showcase, hosted by two of San Francisco’s most accomplished comedians — Adrian McNair and Irene Tu (featured in Viceland’s Flophouse, SF Sketchfest, and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival). Every month, we’ll be bringing a dynamite lineup to Alamo Drafthouse’s intimate theater, 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’s brightest comics alongside nationally touring headliners from NBC, TBS, E! and Comedy Central. Doors at 8:30, show starts at 9:00! Every 2nd Thursday at Alamo Drafthouse!
