[My homeboy Dakin Hardwick has just dropped his annual “Nerd Guide to Sketchfest” and I love his categories of nerdom as it correlates to the festival: “Kitsch nerds”! “90s nerds”! “Taking down the system nerds”!] 

Courting Sketchest: “IT’S HAPPENING!”


Comedy harvest has unloaded it’s sweet produce on San Francisco yet again in the season of SFSketchfest. If you’re reading this blog, you’ve probably heard of it. If you’re reading this blog, you’re probably involved with it. There isn’t enough time for this lowly publication to supply further superlatives — warranted or not — because the train has already left the station.

Take the time to read some steller previews from Robert Avila at the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Peter Hartlaub of SFGate, Nate Waggoner’s Six Must-See Under-the-Radar Events at SF Sketchest (via SF Weekly), Serial Optimist’s SF Sketchfest Preview by Deborah Thomasian, "Top 10 Picks For Sketchfest" by The Bold Italic’s Madeline Janning, The 4th Annual "A Nerd’s Guide to SF Sketchfest" by Dakin Hardwick (Spinning Platters), and Erika Milvy’s write-up at the East Bay Express.

look forward relaying the maelstrom of delight to you over these next few weeks.

Dakin Hardwick and Aukerman discuss the podcast, the television, the live show, and how much Scott loves Phish. Comedy Bang! Bang! Live! smashes into the Herbst Theater tomorrow! 

Dakin Hardwick gives his annual all-festival guide for the self identified nerd. Attending these events is no way a declaration of identity, but merely a observance of the specific and strange. 

Courting Sketchfest: Bay Area music blogger, Dakin Hardwick, give his picks for must see shows at this year’s Sketchfest. He goes through the back breaking blogging so that I don’t have to. What a nice guy.
