Stand up comedy at a gay leather bar hosted by a straight man.

“Safe Words” is a stand up comedy show at a gay leather bar hosted by a straight man. Verbal lashings are rare, but have been known to occur when people misbehave. The safe word (as always) is alcohol, served up by none other than the Bay Area Reporters “Best Bartender,” Steve Dalton. Kollin Holtz hosts the show, and introduces a monthly lineup of outstanding comedic talent.

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!

At an art gallery, in the basement of a parking garage, comedian Brendan Lynch headlines the Laughing Stock comedy show.

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.

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.

You should follow him on Twitter here.
