Lakeview: Crowd Working for the Weekend with Kaseem Bentley and guest Mark Smalls

Comedian Kaseem Bentley has been a mainstay of the Bay Area comedy scene for years. On the heels of the release of his hilarious debut album, Lakeview, he’s taking his show on the road, bringing his knack for crowd work to rooms beyond the bay.

The SF Chronicle writes: “Bentley earns his largest laughs in spontaneous moments”. And it’s true. Kaseem has a knack for finding new and singular moments each time he performs whether its playfully skewering the top 1% at a show in one of SF’s elite private tech clubs or holding court for his people at The Rite Spot in The Mission.

Kaseem bars no holds and minces no words, speaking candidly about sensitive topics like race, religion and PC culture, but does so in a way that doesn’t come across as inflammatory or cruel. He skewers such subjects in an endearing and empathetic way, managing to win over even those in the audience that he mines for humor. ($18, All Ages)
