Laughter and Other Drugs 

Wednesday, Feb 15 2012
We needn’t dial up Cheech and Chong to validate claims of a rich comedic history from our nation’s bong throng. Rob Cantrell has proudly and gently toked himself into this legacy, including stage time at High Times magazine’s Cannabis Cup, held in the weed mecca, Amsterdam. Cantrell charms with personal tales and observational humor, not always on the subject of marijuana. Joining Mr. Cantrell at tonight’s Club Chuckles are local joke-jerks John Hoogasian, Caitlinn Gill, and W. Kamau Bell. Miss Gill has been showing up in comedy shows all over San Francisco, utterly charming in her commitment to aggressively mining her most humiliating moments for material. She manages to make fun of her life without belittling herself or seeming a victim at all. If hapless and fearless can occupy the same body, then it’s in Caitlin Gill. These are four distinctive and funny voices, suitable for anyone looking to enjoy themselves as the world quietly comes to an end.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
