Who says you need a nationally televised audience to have a talk show? Or even a public-access audience? Really, all you need is a group to clap guests on and off the stage. Once a month, sketch-comedy vet Kurt Bodden mans the desk of his own show, Talk Show Live: San Francisco, in a famed North Beach nightclub. Tonight, he brings us stand-up Gary Cannon, currently the warm-up comic for Last Call With Carson Daly, along with hotshot local culture personages Ethan Watters, co-founder of the Writers' Grotto, and actress Cameron Galloway, frequent star of her own one-woman shows on our city's small stages. House band Ned Boynton and the North Beach Irregulars kick things off.
Second Monday of every month, 8 p.m., 2007
