Jim Short, winner of the 2004 San Francisco Comedy Competition, will headline Saturday's Comedy at The Ave lineup.

Short will join two other stand-up comedians when the curtains open at 7:30 p.m. at the iconic theater, 10 Auburn Ave.

His act is a whirlwind of subjects from pop culture, media, technology, coffee shops, politics, and rock stars, all done with a funny accent.

Comedy at The Ave is not recommended for children under 18 years.
