The Setup San Francisco

Live stand up comedy in a New York City style venue. Underground and intimate. Comedians from Comedy Central, HBO, Conan, and more.

The Setup is located at The Beer Basement in the heart of San Francisco. This venue was once the green room for the legendary Blackhawk jazz venue. Miles Davis snorted coke in this room. That's comedy feng shui.

We feature established comedians from around the country as well as local up-and-coming stars. Our goal is to provide a truly raw alternative experience. San Francisco is known for indulging and incubating the absurd whims, oddities, and genius of the freaks who call it home. Think Lenny Bruce, Robin Williams, Jefferson Airplane.

The show always ends before 10:00pm so there is plenty of time to watch the show, do something afterwards, and then catch BART or MUNI.

The bar opens at 7pm, and show starts at 8pm. Come early for cheap drinks and great seats.
