About the show

Each show features veteran comedians Jon Allen and Scott Simpson. A rotating selection of experienced Bay Area and visiting comics also grace the stage.

Please arrive at the theater, and check in with the box office starting an hour before the show. At the same time, the theater bar will start serving everything from craft beer to your favorite cocktails. Come early for cheap drinks and great seats!

All shows always end in plenty of time to catch the BART or MUNI.

After the 10pm shows, we encourage everyone 21+ to party with us at the Shelton Theater Bar and Chelsea Place, a neighborhood bar around the corner.
