at everything from the Barbary coast to the Haight Ashbury – and, as if humanly
possible, succeeds in making San Francisco funnier than it actually is. With his brash call-it-what-it-is humor, Kurt takes us on a refreshingly “incorrect” 60 minutes journey around the City by the Bay, taking on icons such as Chinatown or the pirates and prospectors from the days of yore.
