So much has happened this year, and Will Durst and Willie Brown have a long list and been checking it twice. Who would have thought when Bill Cosby showed up at Willie Brown’s B-Day Party with a Candle on a Ball of Wax “Cake” in March, that his world and reputation would explode, and “Cos” would be a target for Gloria Allred by the end of the year? In September, we made TV News with our guest John Burris talking about Ferguson, MO before the Grand Jury there ignited the response that has been taken to the streets. Lots to talk about in just those two stories of the year, plus a look ahead at 2014 & 2015.
We’ll return to The Gold Dust Lounge at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. It will be Fun, it will be Festive, and it will be Free for you to be part of our “Pop-up” studio audience. Deli Sandwich bites provided (while they last) by Lefty O’Doul’s. We’ll have guests, and perhaps even a GIANT surprise. Audience Q&A in the last of the four segments of the program. Like people to bring new, kids baseball gloves as part of the Lefty O’Doul’s Foundation Annual Toy Drive. After our taping, stay and party with us. Happy Holidays (of your choice)! Enjoy Chanukah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, Kwanza or ???

HAPPY HOLIDAYS! After Orange October and Halloween with The San Francisco Giants Victory Parade, “Fast away the old year passes.” The World Series caused us to cancel our pre-election show. Weren’t going to set up a pop-up TV studio in the back of a bar to record a talk show during the game! So with Thanksgiving , Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanza and whatever else we’ve failed to list, we’re going to do one more show before New Years. Expect a Wednesday in mid-December at 6p for us to show up at The Gold Dust Lounge to record our one-hour TV and radio show. More details to be posted as they become available.

Will Durst, Willie Brown and Producer Paul Wells all have fond memories of Robin Williams. Durst appeared on many of the same stages, and he and his wife Debi Durst were the final owners of The Holy City Zoo Comedy Club on Clement St. in San Francisco, where Robin was once a bartender before becoming Mork. Speaker of The Assembly and Mayor Willie Brown had many charity and other events where Robin generously participated. Paul “Lobster” Wells as a DJ around the Bay, likewise had more than a passing acquaintance with our local, gifted, international star. As a Stand-up Comedy Virgin, between jobs at Jive 95 KSAN and KLIV, he opened a set at The Zoo that was closed by guest sets by Michael Pritchard and Robin Williams. There is a petition being circulated to rename the Waldo Tunnel on the Marin Side of the Golden Gate Bridge (with the Rainbows over the entrance, like the suspenders worn by Robin as Mork) The Robin Williams Tunnel. Well, if the Bay Bridge SF Side can be the Willie Brown Bridge, it COULD happen. Sign here
Our show was taped Tuesday, September 9th at the Gold Dust Lounge in San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. We did recommend that people come to The 34th Annual Comedy Day. It’s a free event at Sharon Meadows in Golden Gate Park, and one that Robin loved to show up and perform at. Starts at Noon. Come laugh your ass off, and bring a blanket to park it on, and layers of clothing!
