Artist to Perform for 37-Hours in San FranciscoArtist to Perform for 37-Hours in San Francisco

Justin Sayre is calling the final editions of THE MEETING* to order.

The final two shows of the acclaimed comedy/variety show, set for Sunday, May 14 at 7:00 and 9:30 pm at Joe's Pub, have long sold out.
