Best Comedy Troupe - 2013
This comedy powerhouse not only produces dozens of shows around the city, but it also brings comedians together to live in a sort of "comedy frat house" of inspiration and support. Members of the Sylvan House work together to support each other's professional paths and to produce some of the best comedy in the Bay Area on stage and film. Staple member OJ Patterson curates the popular Courting Comedy blog that gives a behind-the-scenes peek into the local stand-up scene. Sylvan runs the popular Wednesday night open mic at Dirty Trix Saloon, as well as the unique Open Improv, Get Yucked Up! and Storking Comedy showcases throughout the Bay Area.
