SF Sketchfest is proud to present their ongoing series of showcases at the intimate Dark Room Theatre in the Mission District! Some of the best emerging sketch, improv, stand-up and alternative comedy in the country and the world!
The Fringe Riders are a popular Los Angeles based absurdist cowboy comedy trio. They tell tall tales, sing, and dance as Mustang, Birdman, and Papa D, three legends of the West. Every month they host Stampede! a wild-west comedy revue which features some of the nation’s top comics. The Fringe Riders have also performed on some LA’s most popular comedy shows and venues. The Fringe Riders are Dan Gill, Colin McCormick, and David Venhuizen.
Ham Pants Productions is the brainchild of Andy Wenger (Writer, Director) and Damien Chacona (Writer, Producer, Designer), two non-native San Franciscans who wanted to create theater in their image: irreverent, irrelevant, and inane. Since 2008, Ham Pants Productions has put up three full-length offerings (The Safe Way, Random Idiot Factor, andThe Wrong Dick) skewering tropes in apocalyptic horror, dystopian science fiction, and noir, respectively. Ham Pants Productions Presents, a sketch comedy and variety revue, is currently playing the illustrious Stage Werx Theatre at 446 Valencia Street in San Francisco on the third Tuesday of the month at 8:00 pm!

Hip.Bang!’s absurd, playful scene work has delighted audiences at comedy festivals around the world including Chicago, New York, Edmonton, and Philadelphia. They are two-time winners of the Victoria Fringe’s Pick of the Fringe award (2011, 2012) and were selected as the 2011 Vancouver International Improv Festival’s Best of the Fest (Runner’s Up). While exploring real emotions and honest situations, Tom and Devin simultaneously allow their scenes to be as ridiculous as they are hilarious.
David Gborie comes to party. He’s been telling jokes all over the country for a couple of years now and he is, in his words, “Pretty legit at it”. He currently lives in San Francisco where he is a member of Sylvan Productions and can be seen around town lurking at one of their many shows or at Crissy fields with his trusty crab pot. As a perfomer he’s appeared at The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, SF Indie Fest, and Denver’s Too Much Funstival, as well as the SF Punchline, The Denver Comedy Works, and other impressive venues. He despises the word swag.
