Best Eccentric Walks - 2006
As we are with those supposed comedy traffic schools, we tend to be suspicious of walking tours that advertise having comedians as guides. Foot Tours has proven itself worthy of exception, attracting a roster of reputable Bay Area comedy talents with an impressive collective résumé, from writing for major late-night network programs to touring with household names. A sampling of tour titles reflects that creativity: Liz Grant's "Where's the F'ing Beach in North Beach?" asks a really good question; Mark Nadeau's "Drugs, Thugs, Crimps & Pimps" peeps S.F.'s former red light district; and Bruce Cherry's "Hobnobbing With Gobs of Snobs" in Nob Hill is particularly fun for those living in more downtrodden neighborhoods who like to sneer at the wealthy.
