The Setup : A Funny Thing Happened
Every Thursday The Setup presents San Francisco’s only weekly storytelling show. We bring you bestselling authors, Emmy-Award winning writers, TED speakers, stars of The Moth Radio hour, Snap Judgment and accomplished comedic voices in an intimate setting right in the heart of San Francisco.
The show features six, true, 10-minute stories, told live without notes in a beer basement that feels like your living room. Funny, intimate (easy now, not like that), and engaging it’s a great way to spend your Thursday. We always have an intermission so there is plenty time to chat, meet new people and tell your own stories.
Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Drinks are available throughout the venue,. Ages 21 and up.
Leaving Dublin, Ireland, where he was born and raised until the age of 22, David got drunk on travel and never quite hit the sobriety of it. A bestselling author, David has been featured in Inc, NPR, and the Huffington Post, was recently part of the Irish Kings of Comedy Tour, SF Sketchfest, the Ventura Comedy Festival, Ukiah Comedy Alley, and the Kansas City Irish Festival. A multiple Moth Storyslam winner, Grandslam finalist and occasional host David has also told tales at Porchlight, The Naked Truth, Fireside and Litquake. Always a funny storyteller, these days he calls San Francisco home when immigration officials permit.
