Amy is very funny, so go see her in person this weekend at the Sacramento…

Courting Sketchfest: Huffington Post’s “A Week at San Francisco Sketchfest” by Tony Bartolone

During my week in San Francisco, there were so many tantalizing events it was hard to decide what to see. The 12th Annual Sf Sketchfest was an ambitious undertaking, featuring 166 shows, lasting three and a half weeks and showcasing some of the best talent performing today. Here is my sample-platter of this year’s SF Sketchfest.

Cho was born in San Francisco in 1968. She grew up in three places, but primarily near Ocean Beach in the never sunny Sunset District.
