"It’s funny that there’s people protesting right outside ‘cause it’s like, the same thing: people yelling because they want to be listened to and no one cares."

Courting Barbary: Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction [8 Days Left]

[Everything is shaping up with a little more than a week until Outside Lands. Line-ups have been announced, tickets are gone, beer is being put into canisters. It is now perfectly clear that on August 10th, at 1:30pm, the most egregious depravity shall be on display in the form of the Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction. The concept is thusly: one group of comedians are given a random prompt culled from audience suggestion, which could be anything from Smurfs to the New Testament, and are given time to write a grossly hedonistic adaptation of the source material. While their writing, another group performs a pre-written piece of seminal sementality. Audience votes, the second group performs, audience votes, laughter abounds, and winners are crowned. What makes CEFF a crazy, unique spectacle is that nuclear-hot creativity is rendered dormant by the show’s end. The once-in-a-lifetime, guttural musings live only in the hearts of their primary beholder (or perhaps, podcast listeners). Nevertheless, it’s amazing to imagine such filth so early in the day. Cheers]

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.]
