Live at SF Sketchfest We've got some serious San Francisco Values on this week's show. Jesse talks with Jello Biafra, the punk rocker who ran for mayor of San Francisco on the platform that businessmen would be required to dress in clown suits. Then I talk with a slightly more serious politician, State Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, about his role in the gay liberation movement of the seventies, and the queer comedy movement of the 80s. Plus, comedy from Sean Cullen and music from Zion I.
