Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction - Feb 2012 - Derek Sheen

After performing to a capacity crowd at the Punchline in January, Bryan Cook’s Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction, returns to SF. The event features 10 comics, writing and performing Erotic Fan Fiction pieces, based upon their whims or audience suggestions.

The lineup includes special guest Baron Vaughn (LA) as well as San Francisco favorites Nato Green, Jules Posner, Caitlin Gill, Ivan Hernandez, David Gborie, Jesse Elias, Kevin O’Shea, Sean Keane and Natasha Muse.

Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction was originally founded in Seattle, and is now held monthly at the Nerdist Theater in Los Angeles, CA. It has been featured as part of the Noise for the Needy Festival (Seattle) Bridgetown Comedy Festival (Portland) Riot LA (Los Angeles) SF Sketchfest, and will be at the upcoming Just For Laughs fest (Chicago.) A podcast culled from the live show is debuting in 2013.

Laughspin.Com called CEFF “…One of my favorite comedy shows I’ve ever taken in. Period.”

[There’s so many things that make this show a no-brainer to go to. For starters, it has assembled some of the greatest perspectives/voices of the Bay Area’s comedy community: everyone is coming with a very skilled, very defined style. Secondly, I don’t know the outcome of January’s Sketchfest shows but LAST YEAR, two amazing champions were crowned with David Gborie and Sean Keane (whom will do battle at this event). Thirdly, the absurdity of so much filth is extremely cathartic. Fourthly, just fucking go.]

Show Review: “Mute Defiance” @ Stage Werx Theater (4/12/2013)

Endgames Improv does stuff. Also, they do it well. They’ve been doing it well for years and the city of San Francisco is made better by their exploits. On Friday, April 12, 2013, the group, known for divergent decisions and experimentation, presented Mute Defiance at the Stage Werx theater, a handsome, twilit proscenium. Improv actors set to challenge television by assimilating, by becoming one, by layering live intonations against projected programming, utilizing Netflix, the ubiquitous, quirky, dorky hamlet of entertainment, resulting in post-production puppetry.
