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.

The Crossword Show [NEW DATE!]

NEW SHOW DATE: FEBRUARY 3, 2023

Host Zach Sherwin presides as three panelists solve a crossword puzzle live onstage, with everything displayed on a big screen so the crowd can follow the action. The clues work just like the ones in a typical crossword, but they also happen to be rhyming hip-hop lyrics; there's an Across Clues and a Down Clues rap over the course of the show. Each time the panelists get a clue right, Zach launches them and the audience down a rabbit hole inspired somehow by the answer word. There's comedy, music, trivia, and audience quizzes galore! Astonishing connections and surprises abound! There's really nothing like it! With guest solvers Kevin Allison and Kenice Mobley($35 Front/Center, $25 Rear/Sides, All Ages)
