      I recently visited San Francisco, CA, and the Purple Onion was a comedy club that I visited one night for some laughs. It’s a place where some famous comedians started out, like Robin Williams. I went with my father and husband, so I was a little concerned about the comedy style (a seventy year-old doesn’t chuckle at the same things thirty year-olds do!).


      the night turned out great. It wasn’t crowded, but we were comfortable and had close seating.

      There were a series of younger comedians just starting out that opened the show. They were all pretty pathetic.

      Their humor was all focused on relationships, drugs, and alcohol. The final comedian, however, was a riot.

      He really interacted with the crowd and his jokes didn’t embarass me ...

      • as did the comedians prior to him. A lot of his humor was based around politics, the San Francisco area, and how to feel good about yourself.

        People of all ages were laughing. There is a two drink minimum when you go to the Purple Onion, but the drinks are reasonably priced, say $5 for special beers, $3 sodas, and $6 mixed drinks.


        can’t really beat that in a city. You pay more than that for alcohol when you go to a baseball game! After the comedy show they have musicians to close the night.

        We happened so see two asian performers who were pathetic. You couldn’t hear the girls voice, and she looked scared out of her mind.

        Other than that, it was a great night.
