Snob Theater: The Short Concert Film is a small dose of the atmosphere that was the monthly comedy variety show Snob Theater that ran for 2 years in San Francisco. The film stars Coree Spencer, Chris Thayer, Shanti Charan, Steven Pearl, Drennon Davis, Rick Overton, Debbie Neigher, and Laura and Anton of Foxtails Brigade. It’s produced and hosted by Shawn Robbins, and directed by Scott Oller.
Snob Theater started as a small monthly variety show at The Dark Room Theater in San Francisco’s gritty and historic Mission District. It blossomed into a critically acclaimed series and a unique outlet for the best comedians and musicians to pass through SF and perform smart and interesting material.

Bay Bridged x Snob Theater

The lovely people at The Bay Bridged have mentioned us on their website regarding the last Snob Theater show on June 22nd, 10PM.

Read it here.

From his elaborate characters and sketches, to his provocative songs and animation, Drennon Davis has made a name for himself as one of the most innovative minds in today’s comedy scene. His live performances of the Imaginary Radio Program combine live music and beat-boxing with one-man sketches into a show that the Los Angeles Comedy Bureau writes “not only lives up to its name, but exceeds expectation in what you could possibly think it is.” Drennon was featured on NBC’s Last Call and was a semi finalist on Last Comic Standing.  His new animated show The Long Legs can be seen on MTV’s rebirth of Liquid Television in 2012.

See him with comedians Rick Overton, Coree Spencer and Chris Thayer with musical guests Debbie Neigher and Laura & Anton on June 22nd at 10PM.

Rick Overton…Hmm, where to start?

Rick is an Emmy Award winning comedy writer and an outstanding actor with over 100 films under his belt including The Informant, Dinner for Schmucks, Groundhog Day and Willow. Television has been good to Rick with roles on Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, co-star on NBC´s Chaos, Pam´s dad on The Office and over hundred guest star television performances. Not to mention The Tonight Show and Late Night with David Letterman. 

So come see Rick do what he does best at the final Snob Theater at The Dark Room.

Snob Theater: The Final Show

You are cordially invited to the last Snob Theater showcase at The Dark Room Theater. After over two years of some of the most unique and sensational comedic and musical performances, Snob Theater will be taking an extended hiatus. So to bring this show to a close, we have brought back some of our biggest supporters of our show as kind of an “All-Star” line up of comedians and musicians that have been with us since the beginning. We have brought back the hilarious Chris Thayer (Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Funny Shits), the charming Coree Spencer (Comedian on Comedian), the musical comedic stylings of Drennon Davis (SF Sketchfest, The Imaginary Radio Program), and all-around comedy legand Rick Overton (The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman).

Our musical guests will include the quirkiness of Foxtails Brigade’s Laura Weinbach & Anton Patzner and the lovely and talented Debbie Neigher.

This is your last chance to experience these artists in the intimate Snob Theater environment, in affect, seating is very limited.

Thank you for supporting us for over 2 years and continuing to do so. This will not be without the usual special guests and surprises, so we hope to see your smiling face one last time.

Snob Theater

press -

"When I reluctantly performed on it a few months ago, I quickly realized the "Snobs" know what they're doing. I don't know how they know, but the show --- and the flow of show between musicians and comedians -- is Tony the Tiger quality grrrrrrrrrrrreat! It doesn't really matter who's on the show, it's just a cool mix. The whole is greater than the sum of it's blah blah blah. You get it. It's like Voltron."
- W. Kamau Bell, SF Weekly + The W. Kamau Bell Curve

"The Snob Theater showcase at The Hawthorne Theater (at Bridgetown Comedy Festival 2011 in Portland, OR) was pretty solid gold." - Alison Hallett, Portland Mercury

"Since the series started earlier this year, Snob Theater has featured darlings of the local music scene alongside equally feted local comedians."
- Michael Leaverton, SF Weekly

"Snob Theater is genius. It's a beautiful and truly awesome fusion of great comedy and great local music. I came out for Snob Theater a little while back and was beyond impressed. It was such a fun concept and housed in the Dark Room - it's got a ton of character."
- Jessica T., Yelp.com

"...deeply artistic and punk rock and felini like. I'll remember it for sures." - Michael Musika
