David Gborie is one of the funniest men in San Francisco today. Spinning Platters had a chance to chat with him ahead of his sets at Sketchfest, performing tonight at The California Academy of Sciences, and Friday, January 31st bringing his popular stand up showcase Get Yucked Up to Cinecave in the Mission. He’s also going to be live commentating on the Super Bowl this Sunday at The Roxie, as part of SF Indiefest’s 4th Annual Super Bowl: Men In Tights. He’s a pretty fascinating guy with a lot to say. In fact, too much to say, so I’ve uploaded audio of the entire interview, but after the jump, I’ll pass you a few highlights. – (SpinningPlatters)

It’s been generally known that the Sylvan crew likes to party.
Mondays, however, seem to be party antithesis.
Thankfully, Sylvan founders Justin Gomes and Andrew Moore have teamed up to wage war against the dreary boredom of your Monday evening.
They’ve collected an assortment of local entertainers and shows and coalesced them into a amalgamation of good times which can only be referred to as a SHINDIG.
It’s going to have more laughs, good times, and audience participation than you could shake a stick at.
…Even if it’s a really small stick, and you’re an excellent shaker.

Sylvan is ecstatic to announce a new show co-hosted by our very own, Kollin Holtz in conjunction with Brandon Stokes the first Monday of every month.

We’re just as excited (if not more so) to announce the triumphant return the show that started it all, “Open Improv” on the 2nd Monday of the month! Anyone can try it, and many with far too much liquid courage in them do!

Both shows start at 8pm!

Milk Bar Show!

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.

Nice job!
You now have 30 lives.
Now you can totally die, like, a bunch of times.
