Anyone craving a look inside the lives of comedians need not look further than Funny Mondays at Deco Lounge. The small, dark room opposite the barroom in this Tenderloin gay bar is typically split between comics and non-comics, the former filtering in and out to hit other open mics in the city. New audience members are welcomed by the performers, grateful to see new faces — faces they'll be looking at up close, since the room is as intimate as they come. The open mic begins at 7 p.m. every Monday and runs for two hours through eager, green comics. It's a perfect place for fans to feed a burgeoning interest in comedy without forking over the $20 for a weekend club show.
