Holiday Heathens at the SF Punchline

For the third year in a row Keith Lowell Jensen presents Holiday Heathens. The best skeptical comedians celebrating the hell out of the holidays, what more could you ask for?

Meet this year's Heathens

  • Keith Lowell Jensen has been performing comedy about skepticism, atheism and religion for a decade, often making stops in small town America to perform for crowds who have never experienced an out and proud atheist in the flesh.

    Jensen can be seen on the new season of The History Channel's "How The States Got Their Shapes" where he dominates in a religious history quiz, competing against a Christian comedian. The comics third album comes out on Stand Up! Records in November 2012 and The Coexist? Comedy Tour Documentary will be coming to screens of various sizes in 2013.
  • Conor Kellicut has been performing Stand Up Comedy since the 1920’s. A second generation Atheist, Conor has often wondered about where we come from. Conor came from his parents having sex in the old fashion evolutionary way. He has worked with most of the greats, Dave Chappelle, Jake Johansen, Dave Attell, Dana Carvey, Robin williams, and Woody Allen.
  • Jason Wheeler "I'm not much for self promotion, which explains a lot about my career. My first stand up was in a competition in Cleveland and the host of the competition was Steve Harvey, so that means I'm old. Since then Cobbs, Punchline, yadda yadda. I was an alter boy till I was 16, so yeah, that will scare anyone straight."
  • Jesus H. Christ our special guest emcee this year restarted the calendar, turned water into wine, and walked on water. No, not Gallagher, it's Jesus himself. Please, nobody bring figs to the show. Dude gets bent about figs! (Jesus is being played by the very funny Matt Gubser.)

    Wasn't fond of all the material; but Keith--as always--was fantastic. Never tire of his material or delivery, even when I've heard it before.

    I enjoyed meeting people and the companionship. I did enjoy the opportunity to escape the environment most pervasive over these holidays.

    Hi Tom, not sure if you saw my reply, I would like to buy a ticket off of you, and I can get there early to help save tables.

    November 27, 2012

  • James

    Tom - Did the tckets you buy include the $5 fees that the online system shows?. If not, then I would like to send paypal $ to you for a ticket. Thanks.

    November 20, 2012

    • JULIE

      I'd like a ticket, Tom. Thanks. I can be there by 7.

      November 20, 2012

  • Wendy

    Yes, Simon, we don't want to save seats that won't be used. However, if we know some of "our people" are behind us in line and will be joining us, those who enter first can grab a table (one each) in the same area, and then we can re-arrange ourselves as we wish once our folks start streaming in. [I think that's what Tom was suggesting.] That's why having a sign or some other indicator for each table we want to claim would be helpful. People from our group who are admitted after we have been seated can make a beeline for our tables, and house management doesn't have to worry about gaps in seating because we will fill in the tables that we've staked out. As I recall, the tables fit 2 comfortably; 4 squeezed. So if 20 of us show up, that's 5-10 tables for our group alone.

    Thanks,Tom . I'll be there by 7 to help you hold seats and pay you back in cash at that time. Cheers.

    Tom, thank you for taking the initiative. I have not purchased my ticket yet, but an committed to going.

  • KLJ

    Rather than buying advance tickets and paying a service fee, I suggest just calling the club and making a reservation.

    November 20, 2012

  • Wendy

    At most clubs, the cost is not primarily for the ticket, but for the required minimum purchase of consumables once you're in the door. The club doesn't serve anything I want to eat, so I'll just fork over the dough and consider it a cost of admission that was re-directed from the ticket price. Also, last time I attended I didn't see any indication of who was from this group, and ended up sitting by myself with my friend. So this time I'll be bringing and posting a Meet-up sign from another group I'm in, since at least 3 of us will be attending. Others are welcome to congregate with us, if you'd like to find other Meet-up folks rather than blend into a crowd of strangers. If you'd like to produce a community feeling at the performance, it would help to bring a Meet-up sign and save some contiguous seats/tables so others can join.

      Good point - two years ago we managed to sit with about 10 other Meetup people. Last year we couldn't find any either. Even more problematic is the door people wouldn't save a table more than our party size unless we knew exactly how many people were sitting with us so we just went by ourselves. I don't blame them - they have a hard enough job seating everyone without people saving lots of tables for people who may or may not show up. If we can get a commitment from people who want to sit together maybe we can have someone save a table that big in advance - but that is rather like herding sheep in my experience.

    Sounds great, Wendy. The point of these meetups is to socialize, so let's find a way to sit together. I'll try to get there early and grab some seats, if the club management will let me. I've been to this club many times and they do have 2 drink min which is enforced. But you don't have to buy food. I'll just wait for the after the show to eat or we can grab something before the show...

    November 20, 2012

  • Simon W.

    For the record in the two times I've been to HHH I've never had a problem buying tickets the day before - I'm lucky that this is only three blocks from work. But they usually have a pretty decent crowd and our numbers are growing so I would recommend getting there a decent amount before show start (maybe 30 minutes) unless you want to be right at the back. You'll have time to order a drink and food then - the menu is limited but I found the pizza was surprisingly good for a comedy club.

    I just looked at the event on the club's website and tickets are $15.

    November 20, 2012

  • Wendy

    Life is uncertain -- except for the knowledge that tickets are non-refundable -- so I will probably wait until a day or two before the show to make my purchase.

    Has anyone purchased tickets yet?

    November 20, 2012

    • Simon W.

      No, but I'm planning too - this would be my third year and it is always a good laugh (which is a good thing for a comedy show). You've never seen such a room full of heathens!

    Just had an AMAZING time at Skepticon V, Springfiel Missouri. Has me jazzed up for this show even more than before!

      What a coincidence. Springfield, MO is where I went to college the first time and where I was baptized as a Christian for the last time. If it wasn't for that, I might not have become the atheist I am today.

    Missouri, eh? Did you run into Todd Akin? Or was he too busy licking his wounds?

    We're still looking for a good place to have an after party. Anyone have suggestions?

    November 6, 2012

    • KLJ

      There is a drink minimum but I believe food purchases count and there food choices have gotten much better in recent months.
      I too am a non-drinker. I tell you what. If you get stuck paying for overpriced bar coke, I'll give you a free CD or DVD. Deal?

      November 6, 2012

      Deal!
