THE MILK BAR MONDAY NIGHT OPEN MIC FEAT TONY SPARKS

It seems safe to say that we are in a second golden age for stand-up comedy — or, as has more often been said, a second comedy boom.

The first boom started in the 80s when stand-up comedy went mainstream, making TV and movie stars of comedians like Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, Andrew "Dice" Clay, and Jerry Seinfeld. But as is true with the economy, that boom was followed by a bust, essentially a stand-up recession as comedy clubs across the country closed during the 90s and all but the biggest acts went dormant. Now, with the rise of the alternative comedy scene and the internet, stand-up comedy is booming and relevant once again, with podcasts, social media, YouTube, Netflix, and dozens of channel/website hybrids hungry for comedians’ original content and relevancy.

Comics like Dave Chappelle, Amy Schumer, Hannibal Burress, Jim Gaffigan, Ali Wong, and Gabriel Iglesias have skillfully rode this second wave but whether stand-up comedy is up or down, one thing has remained the same: stand-up comedy starts at open mics.

STAND UP COMICS ARE BORN AT OPEN MICS!

Every Monday Night (5PM - 8:30PM) at the Milk Bar with your host TONY SPARKS (the Godfather of San Francisco Comedy)
