Ask anyone familiar with comedy who their favorite comedian in San Francisco is and 9 times out of 10 the answer: Kaseem Bentley.
The veteran stand-up and former writer on Comedy Central’s Problematic recently released his debut album Lakeside, which is not only hilarious, but might be the most Bay Area-centric comedy albums ever.
Bentley stopped by the KFOG studios for what may be one of my favorite interviews this year. The master of riffing and roasting waxes poetic on the changes he has seen take place in his beloved San Francisco, breaks down the business of comedy and the challenges along the pursuit of “making it”, and hilariously tackles everything from dancers on BART to unexpected encounters with adult film stars on Skid Row.
