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.

Theme Park Improv [NEW DATE!]

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

NEW SHOW DATE: JANUARY 28, 2023

The Theme Park Improv Show's improvisers take a single suggestion of a theme from the audience, and wing an entire set of fast-paced long-form scenes and characters, based on stories from special guest monologist Wendi McLendon-Covey ("Reno 911!," "The Goldbergs").

After several years of sold-out shows, they return to SF Sketchfest with another stellar lineup: Ian Brennan (co-creator of "Glee"), Simon Helberg ("The Big Bang Theory"), John Michael Higgins ("Pitch Perfect"), Michael Hitchcock ("Best in Show"), Jessica Makinson ("South Park"), Oscar Nunez ("The Office"), Cole Stratton ("Impeachment: American Crime Story") and Janet Varney ("Stan Against Evil"). This will be a show you won't soon forget! ($45 Orchestra - Front, $40 Orchestra - Side/Rear, $35 Mezzanine, All Ages)
