Keith Lowell Jensen hates Chicago. But he has a reason. He spent a night in jail there after being caught with a handgun in the airport. But it wasn't his gun. Unknown to Jensen, the gun was in his friend's bag, which Jensen carried through security while the friend checked in. So Jensen asked the cops to fetch his friend so he could explain. But they wouldn't. One cop asked Jensen whether he was a skinhead, even though Jensen had long hair. This made Jensen mad. His reply made the cop madder. Another cop wanted to release Jensen. But he wouldn't after he learned that Jensen was a communist. Except he wasn't -- or, he hadn't meant to be. So Jensen and his friend went to jail. Their dinner? Bologna sandwiches with lots of mayo. Did we mention that Jensen is vegan? Welcome to The Angry Geek Show, which takes place tomorrow (Tuesday) night at the Punch Line.

Performing alongside Jensen is Erikka Innes (who calls herself "the sexy nerd"). She describes the lineup is "a smart comedy show for people who hate things."

Brick Stone ("scourge of the Westboro Baptist Church") hosts the lineup that also includes Alison Stevenson ("the comic book reader"), Tapan Trivedi ("the Indian nerd"), and Nina Daniels ("the cello nerd"). Jensen, meanwhile, is listed as "the atheist nerd." We bet he didn't tell airport security about that -- otherwise he'd still be in Chicago.

The Angry Geek Show starts at 8 p.m. Tuesday (April 10) at the Punch Line, 444 Battery (at Clay), S.F. Admission is $15.
