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.

Lizzie Martinez

Originally from Oakland, California, Lizzie Martinez is a stand-up comedian and writer based in Brooklyn. Her stupid-smart brand of comedy combines subtle observations about the awkwardness of everyday life, tight punchlines, and absurd takes on sex (and other gross stuff!).

She is currently a Headline Contributor for The Onion, and has written for Funny or Die. In 2016, she co-created and starred in the web series "#Throwback," which was named one of the 10 Best Comedy Web Series of the year by Paste Magazine.

She co-produces "Starf*ckers," a monthly show about astrology at Union Hall, and Savage, a weekly show which was recently named one of the Best Alt-Comedy Shows in Brooklyn by Vulture and Splitsider.

She does stand-up all over NYC and has performed at venues like UCB, the Bell House, New York Comedy Club, Union Hall, and Caveat, and on shows like "Butterboy," "Caroline’s Comedy Madness" (semi-finalist), "Comedians You Should Know," "Good Heroin," and "Reductress Live," as well as on special showcases for Comedy Central and The Onion/AV Club.

Festival experience includes HBO’s Women in Comedy Festival, Brooklyn Comedy Festival, New York City Sketch Festival, and NC Comedy Arts Festival.
