This goofy burrito Kickstarter campaign requires your immediate attention and unfettered access to your credit card:
The San Francisco Comedy and Burrito Festival (SFCBF) will be a three day long festival celebrating two of the greatest things in the world: stand-up comedy and burritos.
The festival will be feature comedians from all over the country, as well as top talent from our own thriving local scene. Several top headliners have already expressed enthusiastic interest in performing at the festival. There will be no sketch or improv- just pure good old-fashioned stand-up (and maybe a podcast or two for good measure).
The festival will take place in the centrally located Mission District of San Francisco, a cultural hotbed that features a variety of performance venues and gallery spaces. Each of the venues will be within walking distance of each other, facilitating easy migration from one show to another and thereby maximizing the number of shows festival goers will be able to see. Because of this, the best way to experience our festival will be by purchasing a very affordable festival pass, although tickets for individual shows will also be available to purchase.
Oh yes, some undetermined weekend this fall, many of your favorite Mission venues will be full (full!) to the brim with gaggles of your favorite regional and national comics. And what's more? "With each ticket purchase, the customer will receive a coupon that can be used for purchases at one of the nearby participating taquerias." That's right, comedy and burritos. It's like SXSW comedy, only full of sour cream and absent of all the social media pretension and Rainn Wilson.
Just watch their promotional video:
Of course, like everything else in its infancy, they need money to get it going--five thousand whole dollars to help pay deposits for venues, cover promotional costs, and fund notable Los Angeles comic's cocaine habits a.k.a. "performer fees." So open up your hearts and wallets to promoters Ameen and Jeff and help make this assuredly awesome festival happen.
