“Comedians with Criminal Records” Live in SF (2022)

Crime is no laughing matter in San Francisco… unless it’s Comedians with Criminal Records – a unique showcase of professional comics who’ve had troubles with the law in the past.

In addition to an hilarious comedy set, you’ll also hear the back-story of the comedian and the crime they committed and how stand-up comedy (hopefully) helped get them back on the straight and narrow.

And it all takes place at the historic BROADWAY STUDIOS, built in 1919 in North Beach. Not to brag, but Dave Chappelle, Patton Oswalt, and Harland Williams all shot their comedy specials here. And a little secret…HBO left ALL of their lighting equipment at the venue. So these comedy shows are literally “LIT AS F*CK!”

Comedians with Criminal Records

Every Friday & Saturday starting September 23, 2022
7p + 9p Shows each night – 21+
Broadway Studios, 435 Broadway St., North Beach, SF
FREE $15-20 –  Get Free Tickets on Funcheap’s Exclusive Guest List

Guestlist limited to first 75 people per show – RSVP quickly!

Like most comedy clubs, there is a two drink minimum. This helps the bar and wait staff tremendously during these tough times.


What kind of stories will you hear? Every show will have a different lineup, so you might hear hilarious tales about booty calls gone bad, comics getting arrested for driving a car naked, getting arrested for impersonating a police officer, one comic who led undercover officers on the foot chase of the century and more wild stories.


Each week is a new handpicked lineup of top local comics (along with some visiting special guests) who regularly perform at clubs like Cobbs, Punch Line, shows like Crazy Funny Asians, HellaFunny Live at Thrive City or have performed at festivals like SF Sketchfest, Clusterfest or Outside Lands.


Broadway Studios is located at 435 Broadway in North Beach in between Montgomery and Kearny. Parking: There is a parking lot right door to the venue, plus multiple lots on Broadway between Columbus and Sansome (rates vary). Street parking is available, if you’re very lucky. MUNI: The 8, 12, 30 and 45 all stop within a few blocks. Uber/Lyft/Taxis are all plentiful in North Beach.


Located in the heart of North Beach, the classic Mission-style building was built in 1919 by the Italian community and began its first incarnation as Garibaldi Hall. In the 1930s it was a favorite ballroom for swing and jazz nights, which saw the likes of Louis Armstrong grace its stage. In the 70’s the venue was host to many memorable events including appearances from Robin Williams, Blondie and other now legendary rock bands. In the 80’s it was the epicenter of the San Francisco punk scene with acts like The Dead Kennedys, Iggy Pop, The Nuns, and Metallica playing to packed houses.
