Featuring the Bay Area’s best up and coming comics on Wednesday and Thursday nights. Discover the raw, cutting-edge voices of San Francisco’s best new and emerging talent.
Opened in the 1950s, The Purple Onion has hosted comedy legends such as Bob Newhart, Lenny Bruce, Woody Allen, Phyllis Diller and Richard Pryor. More contemporary stand up heavy-hitters like Robin Williams, Zach Galifianakis and Todd Barry have also performed at the historic comedy venue. In 2012, the club moved around the corner to Kell’s Irish Pub, but hasn’t lost the speakeasy charm of an underground comedy club. Different place, same killer comedy, Wednesday through Saturday.
