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.

Smug Shift [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 27, 2023

In 2004, then-local comedians Brent Weinbach and Moshe Kasher began producing a comedy show in Oakland called Smug Shift. The show took stand-up out of the comedy clubs and dropped it into rock venues and warehouse spaces, reaching out to a crowd that wouldn't normally go out to see comedy. Smug Shift has been selling out since and has become a fixture of Oakland's flourishing art and music scene. Don't miss this special revival only at SF Sketchfest. Featuring special guests Demi Adejuyigbe, Johnny Pemberton, Mary Lynn Rajskub and Robin Tran. ($35 Front/Center, $28 Rear/Sides, All Ages)
