In advance of the November election, we thought we’d reserve the guest slot of our Off-Night Spectacular for someone who can bring some serious political satire to the evening. This month we’re pleased to feature as our guest local comic Sammy Wegent and his show Hell to the Chief.
"San Francisco comedian Sammy Wegent has a lot of problems with the president. Not just the current one, but all of them. In his show Hell to the Chief, Wegent hilariously points out why the American public has never and will never be completely satisfied with the person running the county. Throughout this mix of stand up, satirical charts and graphs, and audience interaction, Wegent puts forth a plan on how we can actually get the leader we want in November, even if we have to build it, resurrect it, or take it from the animal kingdom. Hey, it can’t be any worse than what we already have."
Crisis Hopkins will open with improv comedy and The Freeze & The Department of Transportation will close the show with improvised freestyle rap and music. This is gonna be a phenomenal evening of topical comedy, during the week when it matters the most. Don’t miss it, and make sure to buy your tickets in advance.
