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).

Closet Talk features the ramblings of Kollin Holtz, the music of Ash Clayton, and the riffs of Alex Q. Huffman.

Watch out Marc Maron, this kid records his podcast, guests and all, in his closet. If you think chats in a garage can get uncomfortable, imagine fitting three grown men and a guitar into a closet converted bedroom. Coming from San Francisco, that might not be surprising, but what is surprising is that Kollin has been living in a closet for the past year and a half (pictured above). Seated on his mattress, the three of them make cozy bedfellows in his $300 a month accommodations. Over Ash Clayton’s melodic guitar, Kollin and Alex Q. Huffman offer a fresh look at everything in a 15min time span from comedy to personal experiences growing up, entertainment, politics, and everything in between his closet and the bathroom across the hall. The first episode of Closet Talk With Kollin Holtz (available on iTunes and Stitcher) is live, check it out below.

“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!
