The Setup is an underground stand-up comedy show in the heart of San Francisco. This venue used to be the green room for the legendary Blackhawk jazz venue. Miles Davis used to snort coke in this room. That's comedy feng shui.
We feature established comedians from around the country as well as local up-and-coming stars. San Francisco is known for indulging and incubating the absurd whims, oddities, and genius of the freaks who call it home. Think Lenny Bruce, Robin Williams, and Margaret Cho. In this crazy spirit, The Setup provides a truly unique and memorable San Francisco comedy experience.
The show is every 2nd and 4th Saturday. The bar opens at 7pm, and show starts at 8pm. Come early for cheap drinks and great seats.
