Good Grief with Chris Garcia + Bitch Talk

Hosted By

Punch Line San Francisco + Bitch Talk

Stand-up comedy with Chris Garcia, Reggie Steele, Irene TuRonn Vigh, Dan Rothenberg, and a live podcast with Bitch Talk following the show. This is a different kind of comedy event. We’re not going to beat around the bush and avoid the heavy or just make light of it. We’re going to dive into our losses, grief, and pain, because we know that’s where the deepest laughs and healing are born.
