Courting Sketchfest: The Birthday Boys @ Brava Theaters [17 Days Left]

[It’s hard to pin-point why we adore the Birthday Boys. Maybe it’s their volume. At any given moment the seven can charge like a horde or descend like ninjas. Maybe it’s their attention to detail. Even if it’s absurdity (like a 7-person-sweater) the farce feels familiar and plausible. It’s hard to pin-point why we adore the Birthday Boys but their ascension into glory is highly watchable.]

[Exclamation! Lady 2 Lady has nestled under the wing of Maximum Fun (brainchild of SF Wonder Boy Jesse Thorn), raising their already high profile as go-to podcasters in the CC Offices (i.e. my apartment). I’d like to think and thank the comedy gods for making this debut so perfect; for a LA-based show this episode exudes Bay relevancy. You know what, fuck it, time to gush. Lady to Lady, in its excitable babble and unapologetic goof, is coming ro SFSketchfest (that’s right fucker of mothers*!) The Fest begins in 21 Days, bringing in an overdose of talent, including L2L (Live!) @ The Dark Room Theater on February 9th (last day of camp).

*note “fucker of mothers” was stolen from Johan Miranda]

Courting Sketchfest: "Napoleon Dynamite" 10th Anniversary with Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Efren Ramirez (Pedro) and Jon Gries (“Uncle Rico”). [34 Days Left]
[It’s crazy to think about that watershed moment when cooler kids quoted the holy grail of insta-coolness that always made me feel inferior in my ignorance. Beloved indie darling, an unexpected phenomenon, an infinitely parodied/maligned work that remains unshakeable by most of the cast and crew. Napoleon Dynamite is magic (like this .gif that I can’t stop watching).]

Courting Sketchfest: 2014 SF Sketchfest (Trailer) [37 Days Left]

[The more names cleverly hovering with realistic drop shadows, the more daunting Sketchfest becomes. By the way, SF Sketchfest should be MANDATORY for any teenage comedy fan in the Bay Area. There should be sweepstakes and scholarships, buses and bodyguards. If I would have known how vibrant the SF comedy scene was growing up, I WOULDN’T HAVE GONE TO COLLEGE!]

Courting Sketchfest: Bridget Everett [38 Days Left]

[My goodness. You can absorb all the superlatives and awards, you can glean all the praise and adoration, but there is nothing like experiencing Bridget Everett live. NOTHING like it. I saw her slaying mercilessly at Outside Lands a couple of months ago and I’ll recommend this bawdy babe over any faux fufu with a IMDB page. Demented sexuality coupled with 80s-pro-wrestling bravado and a never-say-die commitment to tearing down the house, Bridget Everett a hedonistically religious experience.]

Courting Sketchfest: Phoebe Robinson [40 Days Left]
[Phoebe Robinson lives half a world away, making a name for herself as a wise-cracking, chilled-out mind-stylist. One of Phoebe’s strengths is her consistent integrity, her comedy comes from a deep sense of self and a long-time observance of her many projects reads like very funny journal. There’s a handful of chances to catch this rising star (highly recommend Bayside Myself (intriguing post-modern nostalgic backwash) or a Sketchfest Dozen show (1/24-25, long set + can’t beat the Punch Line for seeing stand-up)), and you should catch her, because cool cats are hard to find.]

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.]

Courting Sketchfest: The 13th Annual SF Sketchfest Line-Up Has Officially Dropped [44 Days Left]
[It happens every year. A panic of anxiety, a ripple of elation, a tight-lipped embargo, and then, suddenly, a deluge of unparalleled awesome! There’s far too much to succinctly surmise such titan totality (scheduling will be announced in three days), so for the next month we will highlight some choice, fresh cuts of the entertainment mastodon known as SF Sketchfest 2014.]
