Hosted by COURTNEY MAGINNIS (Refuses to stop "Icing" people with Smirnoff Ices) and TOM DELGADO (Doctors in college thought he was autistic because he could play the beginning guitar part of every Dave Mathews song).  See you dudes there!

about the show - from the producer
It's St Patrick's Day and we're celebrating with a special edition of Francesca Day's Free Dirt Friday! We're not...totally sure what's going to be special about it. We're not even sure we have that many Irish people...we might've accidentally snagged a Scot as well, but what could be more in the spirit of the season than a half-price drinks and a vague grasp on our surroundings?  As always, we've got NO COVER, HALF-PRICE DRINKS, and maybe a few give-aways to celebrate the patron saint of our drinking problems!

ABOUT THE SHOW - FROM THE PRODUCER
A few years ago, comedian and bored drunk Kyle Ayers decided to post a fake job on Craigslist, out of pure curiosity. He put an ad up, claiming to be a producer for a very prominent adult film (porn) company. "Send me your best three to four page porn script. I want to find the 'next big thing in adult film writing.' And make it weird."He wasn't sure what to expect, but he certainly didn't expect the flood of responses. Over 1,000 responses in just under a week.  Using the talents of some of the best comedians around (and willing members of the audience!), First Comes Love honors this aspiring porn writers by acting these scripts out, live on stage. Word for word, line for line, typo for typo, comedians, actors, and audience members pay tribute through performance, and get really, really weird. Props, costumes, everything that would make up a bad high school theater production.

First Comes Love has been featured in the SF Sketchfest, Riot LA Festival, Brooklyn Comedy Festival, Comedy Takeover in Houston, and more!
