Bobcat Goldthwait and original cast members Julie Brown, Tom Kenny, Florence Henderson and Dan Spencer joined a fantastic comedic ensemble (including Laraine Newman, Kevin Pollak, Rick Overton and many more) at the live reading of Goldthwait’s cult classic comedy “Shakes The Clown” on the closing day of the 13th Annual SF Sketchfest. Bobcat was overwhelmed by the enormous response from the packed crowd, and added an impromptu Q&A at the end of the program.

SF Sketchfest Day 17: Nerds assemble!

SF Sketchfest celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the 80s campus cult comedy “Revenge of the Nerds” by reuniting seven original cast members — Curtis Armstrong (“Dudley ‘Booger’ Dawson”), Timothy Busfield (“Arnold Poindexter”), Robert Carradine (“Lewis Skolnick”), Brian Tochi (“Toshiro Takashi”), Andrew Cassese (“Harold Wormser”), Larry B. Scott (“Lamar Latrell”) and Julia Montgomery (“Betty Childs”). The spirited conversation, led by The Nerdist Podcast and Nerds-afficionado Chris Hardwick, included lots of hilarious tidbits chronicling their casting, deleted sequences (a whole trip to Vegas was axed from the film) and the sound used to make Booger’s tremendous belches (it involves a camel — we’ll say no more). A standing ovation and a chant of “NERDS! NERDS! NERDS!” rang out as they took the stage, and as the exited before a screening of beloved film.
