Itching to get your funny on this weekend? Then you’re in luck. Now through February 4, the 11th annual SF Sketchfest will flood the city with pee-in-your pants laughter. Comedians from all over the country will invade the Punch Line Comedy Club, Cobb’s Comedy Club, Eureka Theater, Marines’ Memorial Theater, The Purple Onion, and The Dark Room for a one-of-a-kind San Francisco comedy experience that we are beyond amped to experience.
In addition to the standard stand-up shows, you can get in on live podcasts, original stage shows, tributes to comedy masters like Eddie Izzard, improv showcases, already-sold-out appearances from SNL alums Amy Poehler and Rachel Dratch, and live readings of cult-classic movies (including Wet Hot American Summer).
Naturally, there’s no shortage of funny chicks involved in the entire thing. To help you navigate the plethora of events and turn you on to some of the coolest budding funny ladies out there, we’re breaking down our top five show picks after the jump. Take note of the ticket info, get your credit card ready, and prepare to laugh until your mascara’s streaming down your face.
