AK Press will be hosting its first ever Book Burning Comedy showcase featuring, Will Franken, John Hoogasian, Phillip Watson, Samantha Chanse and hosted by Rusty Mahakian.
Will Franken was ranked as one of the Bay Guardian and SF Weekly's best comedians of 2005 and the New York Times says "What elevates Mr. Franken above your garden-variety comedian is an erudite wit and a highly developed sense of the absurd" This will be Will's first East Bay show after is Comedy Central Mainstage performance on January 30th. This is a unique opportunity to see a truly innovative performer.
John Hoogasian has performed alongside Louis CK, Lewis Black, Sarah Silverman, Dave Attell and Mitch Hedberg. There is no father to his style.
Also performing are Phillip Watson, Samantha Chanse and hosted by Rusty Mahakian.
This show was created in the spirit of "The Comedians of Comedy" in the hopes of getting people out to see comedy for under 10 dollars.
