The Mission Position is a popular independent comedy showcase, hosted by four of San Francisco’s most regarded comedians – Matt Lieb, Kate Willett, Trevor Hill and Jessica Sele. Every Thursday, audiences fill Lost Weekend Video’s famous CineCave comedy vault, for a lineup of special guests that include the Bay’s best comics alongside nationally touringheadliners from NBC, TBS, E! and Comedy Central. “The show’s nucleus is four of the most impressive comedians in San Francisco. In the wild, individually, they are who you put on last to close the show or put in the middle to save it. In their den, they’re taking risks, working out and getting weird.” –Courting Comedy $15 21+
