Testimonials


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 club experience. 

This venue used to be the green room for the legendary Blackhawk jazz club. Miles Davis used to snort coke in this room. That's comedy feng shui.

The show is every Saturday. The bar opens at 7pm, and show starts at 8pm. Come early for cheap drinks and great seats.
