Don Reed and Roseanne! — October 1, 2014

Don Reed “Mr. Semi-Famous,” has a new story to tell. His new day job is warming up the audience comedically for the TV show, What’s My Line? Last week, one of the celebrity guests was none other then the “funniest woman in comedy,” Roseanne Barr, who upon seeing Mr. Don, shouts out, “I know you. I know you. I saw you somewhere and you were so ‘bleeping’ funny.” Don is thinking that Roseanne probably saw him do stand up somewhere. But no, then Roseanne remembers, “I saw you perform at The Marsh!”

Do you think this constitutes the first of Don’s Marsh “Hollywood Hell Tales From The Middle”? Come check out Don’s “night gig” SEMI-FAMOUS, HOLLYWOOD HELL TALES FROM THE MIDDLE this weekend and see one “bleeping” funny show at the SF Marsh.

And if you want funny in the East Bay, don’t miss Marga Gomez’s LOVEBIRDS, a fabulous and hilarious coming-out-love jaunt through the 70s. Just a few more shows.
