I guess this is a good a place as any to post this...
I'll be updating this thread with line-ups and dates in case people would like to attend or if comedians would like a guest spot.Snob Theater is a show I host that features the Bay Area's finest indie rock bands and stand-up comedians. The small 60+ seat Dark Room Theater makes for the most intimate of performances and provides a unique and exciting atmosphere. Produced and hosted by myself (Shawn Robbins), Snob Theater is an event that showcases the comfort of the performers as they take chances in a stripped-down setting.
Snob Theater has also been featured in events by Yelp, Noise Pop Festival, and Bridgetown Comedy Festival.
"Snob Theater is genius. It's a beautiful and truly awesome fusion of great comedy and great local music. I came out for Snob Theater a little while back and was beyond impressed. It was such a fun concept and housed in the Dark Room, it’s got a ton of character."
- Jessica T., Yelp.com
" When I reluctantly performed on it a few months ago, I quickly realized the "Snobs" know what they're doing. I don't know how they know, but the show and the flow of show between musicians and comedians is Tony the Tiger quality grrrrrrrrrrrreat! It doesn't really matter who's on the show, it's just a cool mix. The whole is greater than the sum of its blah blah blah. You get it. It's like Voltron."
- W. Kamau Bell, SF Weekly + The W. Kamau Bell Curve
