I’ve mentioned before that you’re basically not a complete human being if you haven’t seen Will Franken perform (what I didn’t mention is that you’re also not a complete human being if you have seen him perform, but this time the incompleteness is a result of seeing him, because he’s simply that great — so let your incompleteness be the fulfilling, joyful incompleteness of knowledge, not the dim, pathetic incompleteness of ignorance).
But I digress.
What I’m trying to say is, Will Franken is performing a new show, Will Franken Rises From The Ashes at The Purple Onion (140 Columbus Avenue in SF) next weekend: Friday, October 1st and Saturday, October 2nd, at 8pm both nights.
Tickets are $20 at the door, but if you’re making this decision based on price, you’re insane. You should make this decision based on one factor and one factor only: “Am I within 100 miles of San Francisco on either of those two nights?” Oh, what, it’s your wedding night? Cancel. You can get married any time; your guests would rather see Will Franken anyway, trust me.
Srsly. I wouldn’t blow my 100th blog post on just anything. This man is an amazing performer. Go to the show, and bring all your friends. You will rock back and forth with disturbed laughter until your socks explode.
