SF Sketchfest

2017 Sketchfest 875x500.jpg

SF Sketchfest was founded in 2001 to showcase the talents of Bay Area sketch comedy groups. The festival debuted in January of 2002 at the Shelton Theatre in downtown San Francisco and has grown rapidly into a nationally recognized comedy festival that mixes national headliners, local favorites and the best up-and-coming groups from throughout North America for a month of sketch, improv, stand-up and alternative comedy. A favorite with audiences, critics, and performers alike, the festival has grown substantially to become a highly anticipated artistic showcase that consistently delivers top quality comedic performances, tributes and panel discussions. SF Sketchfest offers its audiences the rare opportunity to see their favorite performers in intimate live performances and discussions.

The 18th Annual SF Sketchfest is January 10 - 27, 2019. For more information, schedule and tickets, please visit
