Blueprinted as a comedy club from day one, Magooby's newly built stadium of standup attracts a high-profile flock of TV-tested jokesters to its 240-foot stage and state-of-the-art sound system. A new comedian steps into the spotlight from Thursday to Saturday every week. The winner of the 2009 San Francisco Comedy Competition—the event that helped launch the careers of Ellen DeGeneres and Robin Williams—Tom Simmons (July 12–14) continues his rib-tickling ascent to the pinnacle of the standup world. Self-described as “a likeable misanthrope,” he lays into the dignities of modern life and the stresses of being a father and a husband with a bemused irony, pointing out the trials of birth from his son's perspective and the rigors of modern grocery shopping. A week later, Tony Woods (July 19–21) brings decades of experience to the stage, drawing on comedic instincts honed as an early member of HBO's Def Comedy Jam and the star of a Comedy Central Presents special. His laid-back, expressive delivery and gleeful giggle draw audiences in as he allows glimpses into his charmingly absurd worldview.
Magooby's fully stocked bar lines up a joke-themed stable of specialty drinks, such as the Blind Pirate, with bourbon and coconut rum, or the Bearded Ballerina, with bourbon and Bacardi Limon. The menu fuels laughing fits and juggling one-upmanship with burgers, chicken tenders, and a caesar salad.
