The Mr. Marina Competition is the culmination of the search to find the man who most embodies the spirit of San Francisco’s Marina District. Contestants fundraise for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society in the weeks leading up to the competition. Each year, over 1,200 of San Francisco’s finest residents converge on the event to enjoy a night of lively entertainment and, no doubt, to witness history in the making.
Opened in the 1950s, The Purple Onion has hosted comedy legends such as Bob Newhart, Lenny Bruce, Woody Allen, Phyllis Diller and Richard Pryor. More contemporary stand up heavy-hitters like Robin Williams, Zach Galifianakis and Todd Barry have also performed at the historic comedy venue. In 2012, the club moved around the corner to Kell’s Irish Pub, keeping the speakeasy charm of an underground comedy club. Different place, same killer comedy, Wednesday through Saturday.
