Jokes and Notes
Routines from nationally recognized joke wranglers crack up club-goers within Jokes and Notes's elegant club atmosphere. Emceed by BaldHead Phillips, Friday- and Saturday-night shows host itinerant comics who hawk hilarity for two nights before moving on to new audiences or packs of despondent hyenas. January headliners include recent Bay Area Black Comedy Competition finalist Willie Lynch Jr., who adds a goofy edge to drawn-from-life stories. James Davis's youthful observation and high-energy verve have carried him to appearances on Comedy Central, BET, and Bell Bellamy's Who's Got Jokes?, which has also showcased Las Vegas native J. Reid.
