What does a star from Parks and Recreation, a magician, a writer from the Sarah Silverman Show, and an Australian with his own show on FX all have in common? They all have comedy shows in San Francisco in the upcoming weeks.
From '90s comedians who blazed the trail for sketch comedy in In Living Color to the godfathers of alternative comedy, the next couple of weeks is a great mix of the trendsetters of funny.
SF Sketchfest is in full swing and the list below doesn't even start to scratch the surface on the number of comedy shows that are happening as I am typing this. In addition to all that, Dave Chapelle is doing a couple of shows in the city — but act fast. Tickets to all of these shows are selling out like crazy! Don't procrastinate.
It's been a long time since there was a TV show based in San Francisco that showed any potential of longevity.
SF Sketchfest starts on January 23 and mixes in with all the regular flood of comedy that comes through the city. Get ready for an onslaught of funny in the upcoming weeks. It's going to be spectacular.
