For 30 years, Cobb’s Comedy Club has lobbed laugh bombs toward Bay Area residents while launching the careers of stars such as Robin Williams, Margaret Cho, Patton Oswalt, and Arj Barker. They continue to uphold their legacy in June with a packed calendar of up-and-coming jesters. An MTV veteran, writer for Chelsea Lately, and regional finalist for two years on NBC's Last Comic Standing, Christina Pazsitzky disarms audiences with her signature easygoing style while waxing philosophical on Discovery Channel programming and contorting her mug into a multitude of expressions. Joining her is Gina Yashere, a Los Angeles resident by way of London and a top-10 finalist of Last Comic Standing. Yashere's effortless cadence, rolling accent, and magnetic stage presence serve her well as she unleashes observations on race and the coming prevalence of face transplants. Maureen Langan opens the evening, harnessing her English degree, appearances on Joy Behar's TV show, and intimate knowledge of semicolons to slay audience members with her sharp wit and timing.
In July, comedians from Comedy Central's Stand-Up Revolution! take over Cobb's stage. Martin Moreno exposes his own insecurities, endearing audiences to his self-deprecating takes on marriage and Latino culture, and Gene Pompa's understated style enhances his witticisms about grocery-store customer service and dating. With a set that may include colorful impersonations of her mother and her male friends, Cristela Alonzo is effortlessly animated, and Shaun Latham strolls the stage to deliver zingers on lazy eyes and what it takes to be a player. The 400-seat venue's cabaret-style seating forms a cozy orchestra pit for symphonies of snickers, fusing the ambiance of old-time San Francisco with the energetic vibe of the city’s modern nightlife and the hermeneutic complexities of the city's postmodern nightlife.
