Forging a consistent San Francisco showcase on Saturdays led to the recording of the album Twenty Minutes To Sell, available at kellyanneken.bandcamp.com/. Comedians love Lost Weekend's micro theater and audiences can't help but be invested in a show this intimate. Past performers have included Ron Lynch, Women, Dan Mintz, Sean Patton, Ian Karmel, Will Weldon, Cameron Esposito, Josh Fadem, Emily Heller, and Johnny Pemberton.

"George and Kevin quickly became known for putting together line-ups that brought out the best names in local comedy, and national stars from Bobcat Goldthwait to W. Kamau Bell started stopping in for guest sets." - Uptown Almanac

"There are so many things in the Mission now where you spend a lot of money and don’t necessarily have a great time, when there is something that is affordable AND you can have a great time it should be packed…Maybe we shouldn’t tell anyone." - Mission Mission $15 All Ages
