Courting Sketchfest: The Birthday Boys @ Brava Theaters [17 Days Left]

[It’s hard to pin-point why we adore the Birthday Boys. Maybe it’s their volume. At any given moment the seven can charge like a horde or descend like ninjas. Maybe it’s their attention to detail. Even if it’s absurdity (like a 7-person-sweater) the farce feels familiar and plausible. It’s hard to pin-point why we adore the Birthday Boys but their ascension into glory is highly watchable.]

Courting Sketchfest: "Napoleon Dynamite" 10th Anniversary with Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Efren Ramirez (Pedro) and Jon Gries (“Uncle Rico”). [34 Days Left]
[It’s crazy to think about that watershed moment when cooler kids quoted the holy grail of insta-coolness that always made me feel inferior in my ignorance. Beloved indie darling, an unexpected phenomenon, an infinitely parodied/maligned work that remains unshakeable by most of the cast and crew. Napoleon Dynamite is magic (like this .gif that I can’t stop watching).]

Courting Sketchfest: Bridget Everett [38 Days Left]

[My goodness. You can absorb all the superlatives and awards, you can glean all the praise and adoration, but there is nothing like experiencing Bridget Everett live. NOTHING like it. I saw her slaying mercilessly at Outside Lands a couple of months ago and I’ll recommend this bawdy babe over any faux fufu with a IMDB page. Demented sexuality coupled with 80s-pro-wrestling bravado and a never-say-die commitment to tearing down the house, Bridget Everett a hedonistically religious experience.]

Courting Sketchfest: Phoebe Robinson [40 Days Left]
[Phoebe Robinson lives half a world away, making a name for herself as a wise-cracking, chilled-out mind-stylist. One of Phoebe’s strengths is her consistent integrity, her comedy comes from a deep sense of self and a long-time observance of her many projects reads like very funny journal. There’s a handful of chances to catch this rising star (highly recommend Bayside Myself (intriguing post-modern nostalgic backwash) or a Sketchfest Dozen show (1/24-25, long set + can’t beat the Punch Line for seeing stand-up)), and you should catch her, because cool cats are hard to find.]

Courting Sketchfest: 2014 Schedule Official Released, All Tickets On Sale Sunday (12/15) [42 Days Left]
[You’re definitely gonna need an afternoon disco nap, a membership with Uber or Lyft, a source of stimulants that doesn’t make you too annoying, and an emergency crash pad to truly enjoy the silly Sketchfest siege. A meta-game emerges as special-guest-subtext and conflicts of adoration splay across SF’s 7x7; big names, high stakes, bragging rights (I saw so and so, for a handful of peanuts!), and the infinitely wondrous after-parties will be froth with intrigue. We should really have an app for all this, and a cloning system with hive mind memory aggregation, and medicinal Adderall.]
