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.

Yo, Is This Racist? [NEW DATE!]

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


Tawny Newsome and Andrew Ti host the funny and insightful show "Yo, is this Racist?" WAIT WHERE ARE YOU GOING! I know, it sounds scary, but it's not! Tawny and Andrew answer listener-submitted voicemails about racisms big and small, and these days, business is brisk! Occasionally they're joined by special guests, who range from comedians like Nicole Byer and Roy Wood Jr, to politicians like Nithya Raman, and Ted Lieu. The show is meant to be cathartic for people of color, and "shit-you-should-know-but-we'll-tell-you-anyway" for white people. Subscribe now wherever you get pods! If you'd like to support them further, check out their independent subscription site: suboptimalpods.com where you'll find premium shows like 'Yo, Can We Live" which is the racism antidote show, along with other limited series, movie and anime watchalongs and more! With guests Mohanad Elshieky and Jean Grae. ($40 Reserved Front Row Seating, $35 Reserved Premium Seating, $30 General Admission, 18+)
