One of my favorite spots! Rowdy but intelligent. They’ll eat you alive if you don’t have confidence or substance. Love the Santa Cruz vibe. Though tonight they were not as rowdy, intelligent, or interested, still a good time though. I got the seared Ahi kabob. Pretty darn good! Did an hour. Haven’t done a long READ MORE
I got a last minute booking through my boy Kabir ‘Kabeezy’ Singh, who couldn’t make this Indian wedding, so I got to emcee. As expected it was a logistical nightmare, started late, things out of order and they tried to cut my joke portion from the show. I told them no way, I have to READ MORE
I thought this was going to be a sport’s bar but it’s actually a sporting goods store. Smelling like rubber and equipment. Downstairs is the show, with a few ladies in front and mostly comics in the back. I do my ‘thang’ for 20 minutes, running the light some, and then I dip out. I READ MORE
Headlined my home club tonight, the place where I started doing standup 5.5 years ago, and where I started this streak on Dec 26, 2010. It all came full circle 2 years later, as I headline my own show, which was almost sold out! 350 people or so in the theatre, filling up some of READ MORE
Nice day after Christmas, went up at The Business at the Dark Room in the Mission, great show, got some laughs, and headed over to close Our Little Theatre in the Tenderloin, good times. Then went over to Dirty Trix Saloon in the inner Richmond to yell new ideas out at comics (open mic).
Hark! The angels sing once again. But what are they saying this time? That Sammy Obeid officially holds the world record for consecutive days of stand up comedy. 2 years, one of which being a leap year. It was one year ago where I found out that I had to extend my journey from 365 READ MORE
My buddy Rich Freedman, reporter for the Vallejo Times Herald, set me up a special show at the newspaper’s office in Vallejo at 3 p.m. I just did a quick 20 minute set so people could be on their way. We had about 20 live ones and I got some gas money from Uncle Ric, READ MORE
Did 15 minutes of hot unappreciated fire at Roosters.
Today I closed out two of three shows, one at Our Little Theatre in the Tenderloin, and one at Amnesia bar in the Mission.
One of my favorite local holiday shows, a nice 20 minutes away from my parent’s house in Fremont. Sunnyvale is the epitome of suburbia in the silicon valley. Some people laughed hard, some people held back, but I think they were all listening. After I went out to a place called Lido in San Jose, READ MORE
Today is the winter solstice/end of the Mayan calendar, December 21st, 2012, and I’m doing something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now: visit an Ayurvedic doctor. If you don’t know what that is, you definitely are not a hippie, or hipster, though you may be hip, in fact you probably are hip READ MORE
