From The Onion

We had a great time during the first week of SF Sketchfest, but week two is shaping up to be even better. After opening on Thursday with, among other things, a Bud Cort salute and screening of Harold and Maude at the Castro and the first of three nights of Aziz Ansari at the Punch Line (which are being recorded for a live disc), the weekend is morphing into Stateapalooza.
Saturday finds all 11 members of The State reuniting for the first time in over a decade for two performances at the Eureka, which is followed by a midnight screening at the Clay of Wet Hot American Summer with Staters David Wain, Michael Showalter, Michael Ian Black, Joe Lo Truglio and Ken Marino. Then Sunday afternoon brings the SF Sketchfest Tribute at the Herbst, and at night, Wain, Showalter, and Black will bring their Stella shenanigans to Cobb’s. Check out our Sketchfest coverage on pages 22 and 23m where you’ll find an interview with The State.
