Poop or Chocolate may be calling it quits on our insider coverage, but through next Tuesday San Francisco remains Sketchy. No, not that kind of sketchy. Because of Sketchfest. And also in the way you thought I meant. Because, Francisco, you are NO saint. But God bless you anyway.
There are about a million funny things to do in the Bay Area this weekend, but here’s one I specifically endorse: A pair of Poop or Chocolate interviewees, Convoy (Improv) and The Birthday Boys (Sketch Comedy), share a show at The Dark Room at 8pm Friday night. I think the show might be sold out, but either way, here is where you’ll find information. My recommendation of this show should go without saying, I wouldn’t have interviewed them if I wasn’t floored by their performances. Get ready for a treat, SF.
The Birthdays Boys play a second show with Kaspar Hauser, 10:30pm Saturday at Eureka Theatre and tickets are definitely still available for that one by clicking here. Convoy also has a second show on Saturday night at the Eureka, but sadly it is sold out already. Convoy has simply gotten too popular for last minute plugs and while I’d like to credit that to their interview here, it is more likely because they are awesome at what they do.
But seriously, there is a ton of funny coming through San Francisco this weekend. Check the listings and pick something for yourself.
If you live somewhere besides The Bay but still find yourself craving sketchiness, well I’ve got something for you too. Again, not that kind of sketchiness.
Booblay. Bubble. You’re both wrong, guys. It’s pronounced “Boring.” But Jon Hamm should be fun. He was on last season and did a fine job, remember? Jon Hamm’s john ham? It was funny, and then I saw him at a party the next week and I told him it was funny and then gave him a dixie cup full of warm whiskey and he said thank you and flashed a Superman shirt underneath a suit and we laughed. Now do you remember? No? Damn. Maybe it’s because I never told you that story before. Just a theory.
Well, anyway, he was good. Way better than my story. My story was a real stinker. Oh well. I think I’ve left you plenty to entertain yourself with this weekend. Bonne comédie!
