The Business: $5 Alternative Comedy Night | Mission Dist.
The Dark Room | 2263 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA
The Business is one of the best alternative comedy shows in SF and features comedians from Comedy Central, SXSW, and the Comedians of Comedy tour.
This weekly Wednesday night comedy gig features a rotating cast of comedians, but most often features their main headliners Alex Koll, Sean Keane, Chris Garcia and Bucky Sinster, so you’re practically guaranteed a great night of edgy comedy.
With tons of free comedy nights all over San Francisco that are hit-and-miss, this is one night that FunCheap can get behind – well worth bringing a friend (and your 2-for-1 coupon) so can have an ace midweek comedy night for just $2.50 a person.
