We’ve always thought highly of ourselves. Sylvan Productions is essentially a group of collaborators who approve of and appreciate each others work. Now, somebody else shares that sentiment.

The good folks of the SFWeekly namechecked a slew of our members and the group itself in it’s most recent annual “Best of” publication. It’s unquantifiable how huge the honor is for a comedian, but it’s damn exciting to see your name in the newspaper.

In other news, we have a newsletter dropping soon, a bunch of individual tours and tasks are being filled, and we’re all revving up for something huge (probably).

Sylvan Horn: TOOT TOOT!

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!

“Let’s just fuckin write – wait – no – this has gotta be… somewhat coherent.” – @LLDABEAST

That’s how we’re doing it tonight at Sylvan House, ladies and gentlemen. We all just trotted down to the Balboa Theater for a showing of Wreck It Ralph. It was a heart warming Toy Story where in an kid’s room old arcade toys vidya games characters come to life become sentient programs. A classic hero story in a memorable universe, with hilarious and insightful call-backs to popular video game franchises and tropes. Not only was the movie hilarious, but David Gborie and Keith D’Souza (fresh from the road and running on very little sleep) fell asleep towards the end of the movie. As the film ended, the protagonist uttered his final inspirational line… And then, with comic timing so precise he couldn’t have planned it better, Gborie let out a snore that shook the heavens. Many a lawls were had, and we staggered out of the theater like a pack of old-school chums.

Tonight is the Sylvan Open Mic at Dirty Trix. Sign ups are in a mere hour, dear readers. So get on your Vespa and get down to Dirty Trix NOW!
