Event description

Description

“Edna in a Bottle - tastes funny,” is San Francisco’s darkest sketch comedy show, running for over a year and poised to bring its antics to the stage of its new home - the landmark indie venue, PianoFight. Starring a rotating cast of local funny people and one guest stand-up comic, this show weaves a fresh theme through sketch scenes, story-telling, comedy, and short films. If Portlandia, SCTV and a late night phone sex infomercial had a threesome, the baby would be Edna in a Bottle. Popular guest comics who have made their way into Edna in a Bottle include Paco Romane (3X winner, Best SF Comedian), Natasha Muse, Dhaya Lakshminarayanan and Michael Sommers (Sense8 & Sorry to Bother You).

Knowing the city as we do, warts and all, from the seedy to the posh hangouts, the homeless to the millionaires, the tourists and the natives, the queens and the faux-queens, the jaded to the tweet-hungry, the moms and the Peter Pans, no one is spared from roasting. Front row seats get extra attention! “Ya never know what’s gonna come out of this bottle!”

WARNING: MATURE CONTENT

Nicky Borque is a part-time dilettante and full time misanthrope who gets his kicks from disrupting other humans. After burning his bridges elsewhere, he decided hell, why not give comedy a shot?

Her company, Potatoes Mashed Comedy, began in 2015 to connect strangers through thought-provoking laughter, with her messy debut of ‘Spaghetti Monologues.’ She received Best of Fringe at SF Fringe Festival in 2018 for her solo show, 'Altars for my Alters' and toured said solo show at Orlando’s Fringe Festival in 2019. She also co-produces Palace of Trash,' a feminist, issue-conscious drag show every third Sunday at SF's oldest gay bar and stage, The Stud.
