  • 10 things we learned at SF Sketchfest that should definitely be on your radar

    I mean, as a rabid comedy fan I was pretty confident in my knowledge of what’s going on in the comedy world, especially with the ladies. That was until I found myself on an impromptu roadtrip to San Francisco. All I had to do was hop in the car and I was whisked away to sunny California for a week where, lucky for me, SF Sketchfest was rolling into it’s second week. I was beyond pumped to see some of my personal favorites on the line-up this year but what I was most excited for was the array of new comics and shows.

    SF Sketchfest 2013 lineup announced, get tickets, get laughing

    SF Sketchfest

    And so, SF Sketchfest is on again. Most likely you wont find your name on the list of performers, however, you will certainly find comedians that you love. This year’s list or performers includes countless top-notch performers and, needless to say, we didn’t expect anything less. Sketchfest offers three weeks of the best comedians in sketch, improve, stand up, alternative comedy, films, tributes and more. Now, we may sound like a six year old bragging about a talented friend, but take it from someone else. How about the Rolling Stone, for example, who said “One of America’s most respected comedy festivals” and “Amazing!” said New York Magazine.

    Just this morning, the lineup of performers was announced and it’s massive! Read More

    SF Sketchfest will return for it’s 12th year in 2013

    The San Francisco Sketch Comedy Festival, just announced the dates for their 2013 and 12th year of the festival. The event is a who’s who event that mixes major comedy stars and the best up-and-coming comedians from around the world for three weeks of sketch, improv, stand-up, alternative comedy, films, tributes and panel discussions from the Bay Area. The Sketchfest will go down on January 24th through February 10th in 2013.

    As you may remember, last year’s Sketchfest boasted such greatness like a reunion of the cast of Wet Hot American Summer and a Reggie Watts Reggidency in addition to it’s comedy lineup boasting pretty much any great name in comedy you can think of. Bottom line in this story, prepare to get some tickets.
