About us:

Comedy On The Square is the brainchild of Vaudeville Performer Fred Anderson - in 2000 after a trip the the Edinburgh Festival Fringe - "the largest arts event in the galaxy..." he was inspired by the fantastic DIY energy to create an ongoing performance series here in San Francisco.

Beginning in March of 2003 he started producing variety arts, comedy, improv and magic at various venues both here in San Francisco and abroad. 

Productions that started here have gone on to tour internationally include the premiere of Paul Nathan's "Devil in the Deck" which went on the the Edinburgh Festival. "Be A Star In A Juggling Show" which went on the the Edinburgh Festival "Frisco Fred's Comedy Hour" which went to the Festival Praha in Prague as well as the Edinburgh Festival.
