Man did I have fun jumping up this weekend at Cobb’s. I hadn’t played the legendary club in years. Shane Gillis was good enough to let me go up and do some guest sets during his sold out run while I get my stage legs back. I had such a great time. I love San Francisco audiences and there’s something magical about that room.
Shane is so great to watch. Truly one of my favorites comics right now. He just seriously sold the place out, six shows, not a seat to be had. A budding master monologist in the realm of Louis C.K. or even Bill Burr. He’s really special.
I’m sure I’ll write more about him up the road. A lot more. But really this post is about me. Myself and Cobb’s. (Fuck Shane.)
Oh, I will say, Andrew Yang came in. He and Shane are pals. That was fun to hang with him. And he brought Shane up second show and was pretty damn good on stage. Has something close to Obama level comic timing, which is high praise. Apparently they met when Shane was in SNL hot water over some old Asian jokes he had made and Andrew publicly came out in Shane’s support. I love that!
Jim MacCambridge the house photog for Cobb’s and the Punchline took all these pics and a portrait sitting in the basement. I really had a fantastic time. Love that club. Thanks to Shane and Jim, and Cobb’s. If you’re up there, or live there, support that room. It’s epic.
