Hired Killers’ Standup Comedy Showcase
SAT. 11/7 | 8PM @ MUTINY RADIO
Hired Killers is a monthly showcase of some lesser-known comedy greats who have honed their standup skills in the rowdiest venues of the Bay Area and beyond. We present their sharp-tongued hilarity at Mutiny Radio, the home of rebellious, independent entertainment, for a live broadcast & recording going out to thousands of listeners. We’ve assembled these comedians because they specialize in taking aim at everything sacred, but most of all themselves, and they never miss. Join us in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District, and be on the lookout—these comedians aren’t afraid to die on stage, and they’ve been known to kill.
ADMISSION: $7 online/$10 at the door
