SF Sketchfest co-founder Cole Stratton selects a few favorite “under the radar” shows happening as we head into the second weekend of the festival.

Cole: This is Harland Williams’ first SF Sketchfest, and we’re beyond thrilled to have him. He’s doing a boatload of different shows this weekend, but I’d recommend checking out his headlining show “Harland Williams: A Night of Stand-Up and Sketches with Sean Tweedley.” Harland has an incredibly hilarious point-of-view and fantastic energy and makes me laugh like an idiot. Catch him at Brava Theater this Friday, January 30th at 7:30pm.

Dave Willis and Dana Snyder, two of the madmen behind Aqua Teen Hunger Force, are bringing their goofy ways to Marines’ Memorial Theatre for a night of all-things Aqua Teen on Saturday, January 30th at 7:30pm. I mean, you don’t often get to hang out with Meatwad, Master Shake and Carl, so why miss this opportunity?

 If Aqua Teen isn’t your style, then I recommend you check out Charlotte’s Shorts. I caught my final recommendation down at the Groundlings Theater in Los Angeles, and I can tell you that it is a truly delightful night of theater — six actors read various short essays and character monologues written by Charlotte Dean. The cast is outstanding — Jordan Black, Daniele Gaither, Michael Hitchcock, Laraine Newman, Mindy Sterling and Gary Anthony Williams. It’s Saturday, January 30th at 8pm at the Eureka Theater.  

What’s So Funny? Tig Notaro on the Power of Humor with Janet Varney

What’s So Funny?
Tig Notaro on the Power of Humor
with Janet Varney 

Initially known for her wry observational humor, comedian Tig Notaro turned the breast cancer diagnosis she had just received into fodder for her live act. That set became instantly legendary and garnered Notaro a cult following. This candid conversation reveals her surprising sources of strength.

“In 27 years of doing this, I’ve seen a handful of truly great, masterful standup sets. One was Tig Notaro last night.” – Louis C.K.
