"Nobody wants to see "this" complain. Nobody wants to see "Miley Cyrus, Aubrey Plaza, Juno" complain. I only say those names because I don’t have my own brand. Get with the biz, jizz."

– Clare O’Kane @ Dark Room Theater/Picture This!/SFSketchfest [Paraphrase]

Picture This!, the amicable marriage of sight, sound and more sight just made it’s San Francisco debut hours ago at the Dark Room Theater. Concocted in Los Angeles by comedian Brandie Posey and animator Sam Varela, the show paired stand-up comedians with illustrators, each performing their due diligence to visualize this crazy thing called funny.
