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.]

You might be thinking (false premise) “I like comedy and I like women, but when and where should those two meet?” I’ll tell you: in Portland, on October 17–20th. In its second offering the “All Jane No Dick” festival elevates some of the best comedians ever assembled. Shout-out to Amy Miller, Janine Brito, and Kyle Mizono, who’ve graced the SF Bay Area in very meaningful ways, and another shout-out to the numerous CC favorites on the bill

Jesse Thorn and His Talented Friends Are Going on a Boat Trip and You’re Invited (via Splitsider)
[Noted Native, Jesse Thorn, is turning water into wine and wine into urine, which translates into some pretty hefty partying. The comedy portion alone looks insane, and if you’re of a noble bank account ($690), go get nautical. Also, please bring me with you.]

Courting Sketchfest Countdown: Charles (2/6) and (2/7). [39 Days Left]
[Sketchfest if renown for a consistent streak of heartwarming tributes, tantalizing reunions, and emboldened deluxe screenings. It’s also a huge proponent of cross-country-comedy pollination. Charles, an award-winning duo from Seattle, is one highly infectious strand of said dissemination returns to San Francisco. Each year the team seems to come out of nowhere, a revelation to unwitting audiences, despite being active for a number of years. It’s hard to convey the genius of Charles; although, I did try hard last year. Hopefully a higher profile (like performing alongside Jeff Garlin), and increased word-of-mouth will bring wide-spread awareness to Charlie and Chuck.]

Comedy Bureau readership,

There is a big announcement about SF Sketchfest 2013 that’s coming up this Friday, but we’re sworn to secrecy by the binding agreement of a press release to not say anything else. That being said, we have read that press release and it’ll be some damn fine news if you…

There’s a Comedy Festival in Humboldt Happening Right Now

thecomedybureau:

Somehow, The Shits & Giggles Comedy Festival slipped under our radar and kicked off last night with Kyle Kinane headlining. Put on by the Hummingbird Healing Center and humor mag Savage Henry Independent Times in Humboldt, CA, there’s still two nights to go with plenty of shows featuring some wonderful California comedy with Howard Kremer, Alex Koll, Nick Rutherford, Cornell Reid, Barbara Gray, Sean Green, Paul Danke, and more. 

All of this for only $25.

The San Francisco Comedy and Burrito Festival (SFCBF) is a three day long festival celebrating two of the greatest things in the world: stand-up comedy and burritos. The entire festival will take place in the centrally located   Mission District of San Francisco. Each ticket  purchase will earn the festival goer a free burrito!

The festival will take place October 11th to 13th, 2012
