The hit solo show STEVE SEABROOK: BETTER THAN YOU is currently playing at The Marsh in San Francisco. This satire of the personal-growth industry has just been extended for the third time. Writer/performer Kurt Bodden is a UniversalGiving supporter, and will be making a donation to UniversalGiving. We’re encouraging supporters to attend the performance on Saturday, July 20th!
The SF Examiner raves that the show is “filled with laughs!” and calls the performance “pitch-perfect.” The Chronicle says, “Steve Seabrook is very funny — with perhaps a little enlightenment thrown in as well.”
You’ll learn things like how to embrace procrastination while it lasts, and the importance of living vicariously through yourself. Bottom line: you’ll get three days of self-help in a little over an hour.
Kurt Bodden warmed up audiences for “The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn” and “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” trained in sketch comedy at The Groundlings, was a Company member at BATS Improv, and performed at the Edinburgh Fringe. Now he’s in this held-over run with a character The Contra Costa Times calls “a joyously inane self-help guru.”
And it’s at The Marsh, in the heart of the Mission district’s restaurants and bars, so you can make a night of it, too.

We are happy to share about a new organization that shares our mission of striving to make the world a better place!
San Francisco-based nonprofit, PhotoPhilanthropy, is bringing art and creativity to social change. The organization has created a platform for photographers to collaborate, share, and connect with other nonprofit organizations in efforts to drive philanthropy through photography.
Through PhotoPhilanthropy, photographers can network with nonprofit organizations to volunteer and photograph specific projects. Also through the site, photographers can share their work with nonprofits, share their experiences, and even search for grants that will help continue their efforts.
On January 22, PhotoPhilanthropy will be hosting a panel of speakers to discuss how photography can be used for social change. The event will be hosted at the California College for the Arts in San Francisco from 10am to 1pm. Presentation topics include visual storytelling for nonprofits, the value of non-profit photography for socially concerned photographers, and how non-profits and photographers collaborate to make an impact.
