Founded in 2001 by David Owen, Cole Stratton and Janet Varney to showcase the work of six local comedy groups, SF Sketchfest has since grown to become one of the nation’s most respected comedy events. Each year throughout the month of January, the festival welcomes national headliners, local favorites and highly talented up-and-coming groups from around the country for performances in improv, stand-up and alternative comedy. Past editions have welcomed renowned names such as Fred Armisen, Aziz Ansari, Robin Williams, Amy Sedaris and Gene Wilder among many others.
