SF Sketchfest Tickets
SF Sketchfest TicketsSan Francisco is known for several things. For some, it is the home of the deep house movement.

Started in 2001, the show has drawn some of the most notable names in comedy like Wendie Malick, Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara. It takes place over two weeks annually in January and hops around several venues in San Francisco. Aspiring comedians or industry professionals can benefit from the event. You can also simply attend for the laughs and the opportunity to see one of your favorites live in an intimate setting.
Showcasing Bay Area Comedy Talent And BeyondThe first SF Sketchfest show was held in 2001 because the founders wanted to showcase the talent of six Bay Area sketch comedy groups. The groups were The Fresh Robots, Kasper Hauser and The Meehan Brothers as well as Please Leave the Bronx, Totally False People and White Noise Radio Theatre. In the 18 years of its existence, the event has drawn interest from well-known comedians from the Los Angeles/Hollywood area as well as the rest of the United States. Today, national headliners, local favorites and the best up-and-coming groups participate. Audiences look forward to the quality comedic performances, tributes and panel discussions that have included Carol Burnett and Neil Patrick Harris.
