SF Sketchfest Tribute: Alan Arkin


SF Sketchfest pays tribute to iconic actor Alan Arkin with a live onstage conversation between Arkin and comedian and friend Kevin Pollak, followed by a 35th anniversary screening of the classic comedy, “The In-Laws,” which features some of the best comic timing (by Arkin and his onscreen partner Peter Falk) ever recorded on film. Arkin launched his career with Chicago’s improvisational revue “Second City,” and from then on has been recognized as an actor of great talent and versatility on stage, screen and television. He won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in “Little Miss Sunshine” and has won and been nominated for numerous other awards. Other highlights from a career still going strong include “Argo,” “Slums of Beverly Hills,” “Glengarry Glen Ross,” “Edward Scissorhands,” “Little Murders” (which he also directed), “Catch-22,” “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter,” and “The Russians Are Coming the Russians Are Coming.”
