Still combing the program for this year’s not-to-miss shows? To help you out, we’ve asked staff to share their picks for this year’s fest.
Meet Jaime Galli, SF Sketchfest’s Marketing Consultant. Jaime also hails from the Inner Richmond. She’s a lover of marketing, arts & culture, design, and a retired part-time rodeo cowgirl.
# of SF Sketchfests you’ve worked: This is my first!
Show/Shows you’re most excited for this year: Alison Brie, A Salute to “Bored To Death” and Singin’ and Pingin’.
Why: Alison Brie: The only way I can endorse the resurrection of Hall and Oates songs is when it’s being done by these adorable & talented ladies. Also, “Bored to Death” because of that silver fox, Ted Danson, and Singin’ and Pingin’ because it’s a karaoke dance party…need I say more??
Favorite SF Sketchfest memory: Last year’s Princess concert
On her staff photo: I read that overalls were making a comeback, could be the most exciting news of 2014!
In honor SF Sketchfest turning 13, Jaime at 13.
A mash-up of “Jeopardy” meets “Saturday Night Live,” Ask Me Another is NPR’s rambunctious hour of puzzles, word games and trivia that blends your local pub’s trivia night with comedy and music. Host Ophira Eisenberg and house musician Jonathan Coulton challenge contestants and listeners alike with games that stretch their noggins and tickle their funny bones. Celebrity guests take a turn in the contestant’s chair, facing games written especially for them. Celebrity guests include Danny Pudi (Abed from NBC’s “Community”), Adam Savage (“Mythbusters”) and New York Times Technology Columnist Farhad Manjoo.
