San Francisco, CA 94102
Region: Hayes Valley/ Tenderloin
The event promoters known as The BitchSlap are behind many a female-centric comedy showcase in San Francisco, but “Tough Titties” actually supports boobs, albeit slightly indirectly. The event is a benefit for Spark, a local non-profit working on a statewide women’s health pilot program, and includes door prizes for extra fundraising. Shanti Charan, who is SF Weekly’s reigning Best Stand-Up on the Way Up, leads the night with comedy from the perspective of an adult whose mother still babies her and wants to keep her in the womb, while Leslie Small offers inappropriate humor in an unexpectedly sweet package. Meanwhile, Gabby Poccia pokes fun at religion, death, losing “boob weight,” and social media, and somehow finds a way to positively spin traumatic Muni experiences for an audience’s enjoyment.
