Picture Show by Ben Palmer with special guests Richard Sarvate and Ismael Loutfi - Private Parlor Show (($10 before & $15 day of show))

Picture Show by Ben Palmer

Ben combines stand-up comedy with a projector and a screen.

Picture Show has been featured at San Francisco Sketchfest, Comedy Central Stage in Los Angeles, Union Hall in NYC, Comedy Underground in Seattle, Comedy Corner Underground in Minneapolis, Laughing Skull Lounge in Atlanta, and other venues across the country.

Ben Palmer's work has been featured on NPR. He has written sketches for TBS, and his online trolling has gone viral on multiple occasions.

Based out of Los Angeles, Ben has been performing stand up comedy for 8 years, and has one of the most unique comedy experiences you'll ever see.

Richard Sarvate

Richard Sarvate is a San Francisco based comedian with an alternative sense of humor. He is Indian, though his last name was butchered during an immigration debacle. His act consists of quirky observations, impressions, and surreal one-man sketches. This tasteful absurdity has earned him the respect of both audiences and peers. He may be described as a "comic's comic". His jokes range from silly imaginings about a taqueria that serves fortune churros, to deep and introspective subjects like his mother's schizophrenia. He has performed in the prestigious San Francisco Sketchfest Festival, and recently opened for Roseanne Barr.

Ismael Loutfi

Ismael Loutfi is an enthusiastic comic currently residing in Gainesville, Florida. Originally from Ocala, Ismael, 21, began comedy at the age of 18, and draws heavily from his experience growing up as an American Muslim in the Deep South. Ismael is one of the hardest working student-comics in the state, and has been vital to the maintenance and growth of the comedy scene in the city of Gainesville. He has worked with The Good, The Bad, and The Sloppy Comedy Tour, and has opened for a number of comics such as Patrick Garrity, Kyle Kinane, and Doug Stanhope.
