14th Annual SF Sketchfest includes tribute to Spinal Tap Creators, “Weird Al” Yankovic, and Newsradio 20th Anniversary cast reunion
When you flip over the calendar to start the new year, you should already have marked off Jan. 22nd – Feb. 8 of 2015. This is for good reason. The 14th Annual SF Sketchfest boasts a line-up like no other covering 18 days and 20 venues. From a humble 80-seat theatre in year one back in 2002, this festival has become a beast expanding all over San Francisco attracting some of the biggest line ups of the sketch, stand-up, podcast, TV, and film worlds. Just when I was under the impression that the epic reunion of the cast of Wet Hot American Summer for a Live Radio Play would be the pinnacle of pinnacles in 2012, they announce this year’s lineup. Some of the highlights include: A Tribute to This is Spinal Tap creators Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, and Harry Shearer. “Weird Al” Yankovic, who scored his first #1 album after 30 years, will be in conversation with the Nerdist Chris Hardwick. And a Newsradio 20th Anniversary cast reunion. The Doug Benson Movie Interruption and Rifftrax are also back alongside a laundry list of comedians the comedy world is thankful didn’t go into finance.
