Talkies, featuring Ron Lynch & Sad Vicious
July 18, 2014; 7:30 p.m.; Gallery BRSVP on Facebook
Programmed by George Chen
Join your host George Chen for a frenetic variety show for the Internet age. Chen, with coproducers Kyle Mizono and Land Smith, brings the live monthly music and comedy show Talkies to the East Bay for the first time. The night kicks off with a set from veteran standup Ron Lynch, who was part of the 1980s comedy boom in Boston that spawned Steven Wright and Louis C.K. and is revered for his experimental approach to comedy. Lynch currently runs the LA comedy show Tomorrow! and has appeared on Adventure Time and Bob’s Burgers. Featured act Sad Vicious, a duo known as “San Jose’s Most Hated Band,” performs absurd sketches, walking the line between performance art and comedy, but mostly landing on the side of silly.
L@TE is made possible by the generous support of the BAM/PFA Trustees and the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, UC Berkeley. Thanks to promotional partner Econo Jam Records.
