Will Brown & Eli Ridgway Gallery are pleased to present
COMEDY DRAWING SCHOOL II: STANDING UP FOR THE SECOND TIME
Thursday, January 17, 2013, 7:00-8:30PM
Eli Ridgway Gallery
172 Minna Street (at 3rd, by SFMOMA)
In conjunction with Lindsey White's current solo exhibition, Matter of Fact, Eli Ridgway Gallery and Will Brown present Comedy Drawing School, an event that combines the artist's love of stand-up comedy with her ambitions in the field of life drawing. Eli will provide the chairs, easels, paper, pencils, and alcohol. Comedians provide the laughs and get drawn by the audience. Short sets mean hilarious sketches.
One of our first and most popular events to date, CDS originally took place last January at Will Brown. Join us this Thursday to celebrate one year of WB and Lindsey White's sensational exhibition.
Standing up: Shanti Charan, David Gborie, Jay Austin Graham, Nato Green, Adrian McNair, Kevin O'Shea
Sitting down: You
Your host: George Chen
EVENT IS FREE AND FUNNY
