San Francisco Sketch Fest 2011

Every year, the folks who run the San Francisco Skech Fest book great acts, but this year they have outdone themselves - this year's line-up reads less like a typical comedy festival and more like a who's-who of comedy. Some of the special events include Inside Joke: Saturday Night Live: The Originals, which will feature conversations with original cast members Laraine Newman and Dan Aykroyd and writers Tom Davis and Don Novello, Airplane! Tribute to Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker, which will again feature an interview with the genius comedy team behind Airplane! and a conversation with legendary filmmaker James L. Brooks. 

Of other interest to readers of this blog willl be Celebrity Autobiography which will feature Will Forte, Ted and Melanie which will feature SNL featured player Paul Brittain performing alongside his improv partner Jet Eveleth, Upright Citizens Brigade ASSSSCAT Improv featuring SNL alum Tim Meadows as well as Matt Besser, Matt Walsh, Ian Roberts, Andrew Daly, Danielle Schneider and Joshua Malina and The Thrilling Adventure Hour which will feature Neil Patrick Harris, Alison Brie, Colin Hanks, Craig Cackowski, John DiMaggio, John Ennis, Danny Pudi, Samm Levine, Donal Logue, Hal Lublin, Annie Savage, Marc Evan Jackson and Mark Gagliardi.

But all that just skims the surface of what this year's SF Sketch Fest has to offer. Go on over to to see the schedule and stellar line-up of performers and click here for info on ticketing.
