Hot Spot


From The SF Bay Guardian

January 7, 2004
By George Chen

Lazy comedy fans have had a boon recently, with official DVDs making cable show like Strangers With Candy and Upright Citizens Brigade readily available beyond the bootleg circuit. Maybe the popularity of sketch comedy shows and the comfort of home-viewing technology neuters the need for live stand-up, but the cult of long-form improv and a chance to see your heroes in the flesh should drag you out of your comfort zone this month. San Francisco has a tradition as the place where comedians work for the love of the craft, not to pitch a TV pilot, and SF Sketchfest (now in its third year) seeks to pump up the live audience while breaking down the brick wall. If you need some sort of pedigree for your comedy outings, Sketchfest organizers have got your ticket with well-loved performer Amy Sedaris in conversation with local humorist and author Beth Lisick; a symposium with the cast of Mystery Science Theater 3000; and, for Simpsons freaks, the voice of Homer (a.k.a. Dan Castellaneta) as part of the Totally Looped show, which features dialogue improvised over old movie clips. Personally, I’m most excited about shows featuring the Girls Guitar Club with Karen Kilgariff and Mary Lynn Rajskub (both Mr. Show alumni) and Saturday Night Live player Fred Armisen. Notable locals involved are 18 Mighty Mountain Warriors, Will Durst, and Killing My Lobster. The fest kicks off Fri/9; check the Web site for a complete schedule. This week’s shows are listed in Stage Listings. www.sfsketchfest.com
