SF Sketchfest returns January 20 - February 5, 2023!

SF Sketchfest has been rescheduled for January 20 through February 5, 2023. The vast majority of existing shows will still be presented at the festival. While we’re disappointed to spend another year apart, the health and safety of our audience, performers, and staff comes first. Due to venue availability, 2023 is the earliest we can present the festival as planned, but we can’t wait to safely laugh along with you then!

All ticket holders will be contacted directly as soon as possible with more information. Please hang on to your tickets as we reach out to each and every ticket holder as soon as we can! Thank you for your patience while we’ve been working to reschedule these shows. We are beyond grateful for your support.

Bronson Pinchot

Bronson Pinchot was born in New York, raised in Pasadena, and attended Yale on a full scholarship, first being interested in art -- it was during his art studies that he began to pursue acting. Cast in an off-Broadway play soon after his 1981 graduation, Pinchot was seen by a casting director and gained the role of one of Joel's poker playing friends in “Risky Business,” and appeared the next year in “The Flamingo Kid.” Cast as Serge, an associate art dealer, in “Beverly Hills Cop,” Pinchot stole his one real scene from Eddie Murphy. Soon after, Pinchot was cast as Balki Bartokomous, the odd cousin from a Mediterranean Island who comes to live with Mark Linn-Baker on the beloved sitcom “Perfect Strangers,” which ran for seven seasons. He was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for the role.

On the big screen, Pinchot also starred in “Second Sight,” “Slappy and The Stinkers,” and “Blame It on the Bellboy.” He reprised his role of Serge in “Beverly Hills Cop III,” and had memorable turns in “True Romance,” “Courage Under Fire,” “The First Wives Club” and “After Hours.” He also starred in “The All-New Adventures of Laurel and Hardy: For Love or Mummy,” in which he portrayed Stan Laurel.

TV work includes "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina," “The Trouble with Larry,” “Step By Step,” “Meego,” “Ray Donovan,” “Chuck,” “Lodge 49,” “The Langoliers,” “The Young and The Restless,” “Law & Order: SVU,” and much more.

He first appeared on Broadway in 1990 in “Zoya's Apartment,” a comedic play at the Circle in the Square theater. In 1999, He appeared with Carol Burnett and John Barrowman in “Putting It Together” and starred in 2004's revival of “Sly Fox,” with Richard Dreyfuss and Eric Stoltz. Other broadway appearances include “The Winter’s Tale,” “Henry V,” “Chasing Nicolette” and Stephen Soundheim’s “Putting It Together.”
