SF SKETCHFEST STAFF PICKS: Sarah Crisman Richards, SF Sketchfest Festival Assistant


If you haven’t gotten to participate in SF Sketchfest yet or want to weather the rainy day by squeezing in one more show, here’s a staff pick to help you choose from the final Sunday’s schedule

Meet Sarah Crisman Richards, SF Sketchfest Festival Assistant and “gal Friday.” She lives in the East Bay, where she spends time playfully documenting revolution through storytelling and conversation. She is also corresponding for Laughspin from this year’s festival. She shares, “SFSF is my dream job!”

# of SF Sketchfests you’ve worked: Two

Show you’re most excited for this year: Salute to Coyle and Sharp!

Why: They are the quintessential San Francisco reflection of intelligent absurdity. SF Sketchfest and Jesse Thorn is wise to bring this morsel of comedy history to light. My nerd heart could just pop.

Favorite SF Sketchfest memory: Making my heroes laugh.

Favorite venue in SF: The Punchline for coziness and The Castro for dazzle.
