#58 - Bay Area Stand-Up Comedy A Humorous History

#58 - Bay Area Stand-Up Comedy A Humorous History

During the Covid-19 pandemic, two friends in comedy, Nina G. & OJ Patterson, joined forces to celebrate both their love of stand-up comedy to write Bay Area Stand-Up Comedy: A Humorous History (published by The History Press). The book includes over 100 photos, incorporating interviews from comedians like Don Novello (aka Father Guido Sarducci), Larry “Bubbles” Brown, Donald Lacy, Carrie Snow, Debi Durst, Tony Sparks, Ritch Shydner, and Lisa Geduldig (Kung Pao Kosher Comedy) that help tell the story of Bay Area stand-up comedy from the mid 1800s to the pandemic.
