Piano Fight, San Francisco

Attractive Camp is a live comedy battle between standup comedians you know from Conan, Comedy Central, Cobb’s Comedy Club and SF Punchline.
We’re celebrating our move to PianoFight in downtown SF with a free live show and recording Friday March 11. Enjoy the most creative takes on social issues, intelligent and incisive rapport and good old fashioned sh*t talking as comics wrestle racism, sexism, hypocrisy, bigotry and pseudointellectualism. Hosted by Nicole Calasich (ABC, regular opener for Iliza Shlesinger) Jesse Hett (Cobb’s Comedy Club) and Abhay Nadkarni (DesiComedyFest)!
PianoFight has two theaters and a gorgeous luxury bar in front to hang at before and after shows, with fabulous live music. It has become a jewel in the Market street area of SF where artists, local politicians, and business folks alike gather for relaxed drinks in a glamorous setting. Perfect for babes trying to date some babes and be able to upgrade the relationship to publicly calling each other “babe.”
