Back by popular demand, the Clark Center for the Performing Arts presents a hilarious new showcase of some of the best comedic talent in the country with the Best of the San Francisco Stand-Up Comedy Competition on Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 8pm.

For more than two decades the San Francisco Stand-Up Comedy Competition has served as a major career springboard for many talented comedians including Robin Williams, Dana Carvey, Ellen DeGeneres and Dane Cook. The Clark Center performance will feature the competition’s 2012 Champion, Tony Baker as well as performances by other comedians that will be announced soon.

Tony Baker was featured on the latest season of Comedy Central’s “Stand Up Revolution” & is the 2012 winner of the prestigious San Francisco Comedy Competition.  On stage, Tony talks about his life, particularly his childhood, his marriage, his children and his many phobias.  He also brings witty and pretty absurd observational takes on animals, bugs and movies. Tony Baker’s delivery technique has been described as a comedy version of smooth jazz.
