    With Tracy Morgan what you see is what you get. The problem is, you never know what you are going to see. The "30 Rock" star is notorious for being unpredictable, like going on a  Chicago area morning show and pretending to give birth live on set. With Tracy Morgan, things just seem to happen. The comedian will certainly make things happen as he plays a weekend set at Cobb's Comedy Club in San Francisco.

    Celebrate everything Jerry Garcia at a day of musical celebrations honoring the former Grateful Dead lead singer. The party will take place at the appropriately named Jerry Garcia Amphitheater, 45 John F. Shelley Dr. in San Francisco Saturday from noon to 6 p.m.

    If you're looking for good food this weekend you could go to the Michelin Guide recommended Mantra in Palo Alto for a dish of California cuisine with an added spice or two from India.

    The War on Fun has not taken Slim's down just yet. And to celebrate the not so premature, non-demise of one of the best places to see a show in the Bay Area, Swingin' Utters will take the stage Saturday at 8 p.m.

    With a name like Kinky Friedman how could you go wrong? The singer, songwriter, novelist and political writer was brave enough to be an independent candidate for governor in Texas. In the shadows of Will Rogers, Friedman will touch on a little of everything Friday night at the Great American Music Hall, 859 O'Farrell St. in San Francisco at 8 p.m.

    Steve Harvey is more than just a funny suit. One of the Kings of Comedy will bring his stand up act to one of the underrated places to see a show in the Bay Area: the Paramount Theater, 2025 Broadway in Oakland Saturday at 7: 30 p.m.
