Talkies with George Chen, Aviva Siegel, Land Smith, Nick Stargu and guests Katie-Ellen Humphries, Chad Opitz, Jay Shingle and Jordan Thewlis

Talkies is the Bay Area's best unconventional, experimental, and multimedia live comedy event. At Talkies, comedians, writers, improvisers, and performers work outside of their regular routines to push the boundaries of comedy, PowerPoint presentations, characters, and off-stage antics are the order of the day. Started in the Mission District basement of Lost Weekend Video store, this monthly show has been an incubator for many unique comedy talents spreading their wings on weird flights of fancy. Talkies has appeared at SF Sketchfest, Nevada City Film Fest, Cobb's Comedy Club, All Out Comedy Theater, Roxie Theater, and Lost Weekend Video. Featuring George Chen, Aviva Siegel, Land Smith, Nick Stargu and special guests.

When you arrive at PianoFight, you walk into the most beautiful bar in the Tenderloin, where you can order drinks, and listen to whoever happens to be playing the cabaret stage that night. From there, refill your drink, and head into one of the two theaters to see your show.

If you plan on ordering a drink before your show, we recommend you arrive at least 15 minutes early so you (and our staff) have plenty of time. Drinks are allowed (and encouraged!) in the theaters.

PARKING: Street parking is free after 6pm. We’re located 2 blocks from Powell BART, numerous muni lines and there are 3 parking lots within 1 block.

ACCESSIBILITY: PianoFight's restaurant, bar, and both theaters are fully ADA accessible.

AGE RESTRICTIONS: PianoFight is 21+ for all events. Please bring a valid ID.
