Comics and comix collide as the funnies meet the funny in the sixth annual fundraiser and silent art auction for San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum. Join the Bay Area’s funniest folk for a night of food, drink, and entertainment, and bid on original art by some of today’s brightest stars in comics. This year Comics 4 Comix takes place on Tuesday, September 7th 2010, at San Francisco’s famed Punchline Comedy Club, 444 Battery Street. The doors open at 6:30pm, and the show starts at 8pm. General admission tickets for this benefit cost $20. Tickets may be purchased in advance from Livenation’s website (livenation.com) or at the door on the night of the event.
The Cartoon Art Museum will host an all-star cast of stand-up comics for this event, featuring headliner comedian and Simpsons writer Dana Gould, as well as local comedians Joe Klocek, Mike Meehan, and host Michael Capozzola, comedian and creator of the comic strip Surveillance Caricatures in the San Francisco Chronicle’s 96 hours section. Accommodations for our headliner are being provided by the InterContinental San Francisco. Performances will begin at 8 pm. In addition to getting a dose of high comedy, attendees will have the opportunity to bid on and peruse original comic strip art from popular local and national cartoonists, including Dan Piraro (Bizarro), Lynn Johnston (For Better or For Worse), Michael Jantze (The Norm), Jack Davis (Mad Magazine), Keith Knight (The K Chronicles), and much, much more.
