Comedy Day in Golden Gate Park — 5 hours of FREE SHOWS!
Comedy shows are expensive. They’re almost not worth it in my opinion. Say you shell out $25 for a ticket to Cobb’s or the Punch Line, and you’re planning on having a great time. But then comes the drink minimum, which, for an average beer [we’re talking Bud here], its going to cost you at least $5-6 for each drink. Then you want food after you start drinking, which is even more cash. You’re looking at a $50 venture here — something that, even if the person is drop dead funny, I can make just as many jokes amuse myself at home for free.
If you’re like me and love to laugh for change, or even for free, Comedy Day in Golden Gate Park today will make sure your wallet won’t get raped for a belly laugh or 3. Though the list is mainly comprised of local talent, apparently Tom Ammiano is going to take a shot at the mike. That, in and of itself, is worth an afternoon walk to Golden Gate Park. Just don’t forget the tomatoes.
