Hopefully that’s what you’ll hear at the 30th annual Comedy Day in Golden Gate Park this Sunday. Over 40 comics from local clubs like Cobb’s, Punch Line and SF Sketchfest will be there to try to make you pee your pants.
Tonight you can blast off to Pluto at the 4-Star Theater when a special performance from the SF Fringe Festival, “”Road Trip to Pluto: The Bitter Planet” hits the stage.

Cap’n, Psycho and Princess jump into action to save the day with a mix of theater, film and even rapping.

In food news, my world stopped turning for a nanosecond when I discovered my favorite pizzeria, Giorgio’s, now delivers. It only took them 38 years to get to it. If you live on the west side of town, you’re probably in their delivery zone.
On the history tip this week, photographer Fred Lyon will be at Green Apple Books on Saturday afternoon to talk about his new photo book, “San Francisco Then”.

Have a great weekend everyone!
