I’m really bad at this. REEEEALLY bad. “Would you like to cover comedy on the site,” asked Dakin. “Sure!” says I. Two months after SF Sketchfest, a big pile of nothing! Apologies for underserving and under-performing…
[Sometimes I write things for other websites. These are the shows you should see this month. I feel incredibly inadequate as a comedy curator—regular life problems—but I need to push out my brand of pretentious knowhow.]
The coincidently nautical showcase of BOAT and BriTANick (rhymes with Titanic) capsized before the show even started. Eureka Theater’s projector mutinied, died at a time most inopportune. It left behind a lobby drowned with humanity—a sold out show.
[My latest review, detailing BOAT and BriTANick at the Eureka Theater, one of my favorite shows of all time.]
Who will speak for sketch? When it’s all over, when the theaters are empty, when the stand-ups scatter, the celebrities fly away and the improvisers jam out, who will speak for the hardest discipline to sustain in San Francisco?
[My latest review for Spinning Platters covering the Don’t Watch This Show Live! (dwtslive) and Femikaze (femikaze) show hosted by Jules Posner at the Eureka Theater on 1/27/2014]
Wouldn’t it be great if cloning was already a thing? So we could be at 8 places at once and not have to decide which Sketchfest events you are going to? Well, until science improves greatly, we are stuck with one body and being in one place at a time. Because of this trouble, I have taken the time to dissect the entire Sketchfest schedule and help you out by highlighting the best of the fest. A complete schedule and tickets can be purchased here. A lot of shows have already sold out, and more shows are selling out every day, so don’t forget to purchase in advance!
[My homeboy Dakin Hardwick has just dropped his annual “Nerd Guide to Sketchfest” and I love his categories of nerdom as it correlates to the festival: “Kitsch nerds”! “90s nerds”! “Taking down the system nerds”!]
