More Hollywood and musical talent is coming to the SF Sketchfest early next year.
The local comedy festival, slated to return in January, just announced additions to its lineup, which will also feature Schitt’s Creek stars Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara discussing the beloved mockumentary A Mighty Wind as part of a 20th anniversary screening.
Portlandia co-creator and Saturday Night Live alum Fred Armisen, who also guest stars as Uncle Fester in the new Tim Burton-directed Addams Family Netflix series Wednesday, hosts a three-night residency featuring a different bass player each night from Jan. 27 to 29. The guest list is TBD, but we presume live music will accompany the laughs.
SF-based jazz, classical and electronic music collective The Red Room Orchestra will play the music of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks on Feb. 2 as well as the soundtrack from American sci-fi black comedy Repo Man on Feb. 3.
Maggie Lawson of Boy Meets World and Timothy Omundson of Supernatural—who co-host the Psych re-watch podcast The Psychologists Are In—will be live at Cobb’s Comedy Club in January. Daniel Van Kirk, the voice of Flips Whitefudge in Bob’s Burgers, and The Sklar Brothers of FX’s What We Do in the Shadows bring their Dumb People Town podcast to Cobb’s on the last night of the festival in February.
