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.
