Savage Henry Magazine and Sylvan Productions go together like peas and other green things associated with Humboldt county. The good folks at Savage Henry Independent Times took the time to chat up one of our favorite writers, comedians, and reasons why we had to leave the party early, Keith Dirty.
While we weep from the cruelty of Amy Miller’s absence from our Bay-home-base, another city cries in fearful respect. Williamette Weekly has selected Amy as one of the funniest people in Portland… SHE’S ONLY LIVED THERE FOR A YEAR! It’s been a great year for our great friend, we expect and wish her continued success, and encourage you to check out her hilarious Twitter, hilarious podcast, and hilarious live-act (she’s opening up for Maria “Bam Bam” Bamford for christsakes).
All Hail Amy Miller!

Sylvan Productions Presents
Comedy Night at the Presidio
With Will Durst
Who: Will durst headlines! Featuring Andrew Holmgren, and hosted by Justin Gomes.
When: February 21st, 2013, 8:00 PM;
Where: The Presidio Cafe and Golf Course. 300 Finley Road, San Francisco, CA. 94129 (http://www.presidiocafe.com/)
Sylvan Productions presents the King of San Francsico Comedy, Will Durst(HBO, Letterman, BBC). A one night only show that pairs some of the best of two generations of comedians, Comedy Night at the Presidio is truly a showcase of some of the City’s best talent. Featuring Andrew Holmgren (Sylvan Productions, SF Sketchfest), the Bay’s favorite long haired comedian, and hosted by Justin Gomes (Sylvan Productions, SF Comedy & Burrito Fest).
He is a 5 time Emmy nominee; has been fired by PBS three times; told jokes in 14 countries; racked up 7 nominations for Stand-Up of the Year; and his 800+ television appearances include Letterman, HBO, Showtime, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News, the BBC and many more. The critically acclaimed Off-Broadway run of his one man show: “The All American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing,” was subsequently turned into a book of the same name by Ulysses Press. His hobbies include pinball, the never-ending quest for the perfect cheeseburger and his heroes remain the same as when he was 12… Thomas Jefferson and Bugs Bunny. Not necessarily in that order. Durst’s performances are made possible by the 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
Episode 4 is now available, and it’s just as nonsensical as the previous three. Promise.
This episode finds the boys in 2:46am delirium going on about Charles Darwin (among other things).
What is “Closet Talk With Kollin Holtz?” See the original release story here.
P.S. Don’t forget about the Valentines Day Comedy show in downtown SF. What’s more romantic than dragging your valentine into the basement of a parking garage to see the Bay’s best comedy? Find out here.
#SylvanHouse all up in this shit.
And we filmed it and broadcasted it live on Google+. It’s understandable if you missed it, it happened secretly at midnight.
We were fortunately blessed with appearances by a gaggle of out-of-town Sketchfest performers.
and the Dunning-Kruger Effect
Luckily, we saved it, for you. Because we love you. A lot. Seriously. We really miss you.
2013 is turning into quite the year, and we’re only on the fifth week in.
Ask yourself, is there anything more romantic than whisking your love away to the basement of a parking garage to see the Bay’s best stand up comedy?
The correct answer is no. Nothing is more romantic than saying, “Hey, I’m going to drag you into the basement of this parking garage,” making everyone you’re with extremely uncomfortable. Imagine their relief and delight when they realize you only brought them there for cheap beers, and belly laughs. This month, Scott Capurro (Comedy Central) leaves one foggy city (London) for the love of another.
The show is hosted by Kollin Holtz, and features the comedy musings of Daryus Monday, Juan Medina, Andrew Holmgren, and Caitlin Gill. 21+. Get you and your friends in for $5 total when you come together! Free with valid college ID or weed card.
Join the last “sporadic” show of Laughing Stock before it moves to the regular date of the 3rd Thursday of the month starting in March!
We, the comedians at Sylvan Productions, take over the Mission’s favorite FREE comedy show, Comedy Bodega tomorrow night!
|| FREE || 21+ ||
Hosted by Kollin Holtz, the show features the comedic talents of Sylvan’s own Clare O’Kane, David Gborie, Justin Gomes, Keith D’Souza, Andrew Holmgren and special guest from L.A., Stuart Thompson!
Sylvan Productions and Gallery and Bar 4N5 are happy to announce, with it’s six month anniversary rapidly approaching, that Laughing Stock (the comedy show) will become a regular fixture at the venue voted “Best Nightlife Spot” by SF Weekly 2012. Starting March 21st the show will debut it’s new, regular time slot every third Thursday of the month.
The show will stay the same! The same quality comedy, same draft beers, and the same quirk and allure of a comedy show in an art gallery in the basement of a parking garage. The only things changing about this show are the date to every third Thursday, and the lineup of comedians.
The next show is Thursday (surprise!), January 17th. $5 At The Door. 21+.
Get you and your friends in for $5 total when you come together!
