3 Chances to See Todd Barry's Blackly Funny Stand-Up in San Francisco (3/17-3/19)

This jack of all trades walks a thin line between humor and discomfort.


Comedian Todd Barry has shared the stage with numerous rock bands (playing drums for Superchunk while they covered the Misfits in Williamsburg last fall), starred in films like The Wrestler and Pootie Tang and has appeared on tons of television shows (“Flight of the Conchords,” “Aqua Teen Hunger Force,” “Tim & Eric’s Awesome Show Great Job!”), both as himself and as other strange characters. Known for his calm, deadpan delivery, he’s one of many contemporary comedians (Louis C.K., Patton Oswalt) who take the darker side of satire and have no problem walking a line that a lot of audiences don’t want to walk. This 3-night stand in San Francisco is part of a national tour he's gearing up for; if you order tickets here, the discount code TODDB saves $3 off admission on Thursday and Friday. —Finn Cohen
