SF Sketchfest Tickets

SF Sketchfest

SF Sketchfest was founded in 2001 by David Owen, Cole Stratton and Janet Varney as a way to showcase the talents of six Bay Area sketch comedy groups: The Fresh Robots, Kasper Hauser, The Meehan Brothers, Please Leave the Bronx, Totally False People and White Noise Radio Theatre. The festival debuted in January of 2002 at the Shelton Theatre in downtown San Francisco and has grown rapidly into a nationally recognized comedy festival that mixes national headliners, local favorites and the best up-and-coming groups from throughout North America for a month of sketch, improv, stand-up and alternative comedy. A favorite with audiences, critics, and performers alike, the festival has grown substantially to become a highly anticipated artistic showcase that consistently delivers top quality comedic performances, tributes and panel discussions.

SF Sketchfest offers its audiences the rare opportunity to see their favorite performers in intimate live performances and discussions.

Irene Tu was pretty funny but the other 2 comedians weren't very good. I was disappointed that their humor wasn't especially clever or topical. We've been to Punchline several times before & the comediens were much better. Had good seats with...continued
