Years ago Dino Stamatopoulos wrote a musical comedy (or more appropriately a Light Tragedy with Music) about a small family surviving through a cold winter. Think Sam Shepard meets Moral Orel. Although this play was only performed once, in Chicago, it’s being brought back in the form of a musical graphic novel. However, for San Francisco Sketchfest, for the first time since the original staging, Dino and guests will perform scenes and music from TRENT: a light tragedy with music.

ABOUT SF SKETCHFEST

SF Sketchfest was founded in 2001 by David Owen, Cole Stratton and Janet Varney as a way to showcase the talents of six Bay Area sketch comedy groups: The Fresh Robots, Kasper Hauser, The Meehan Brothers, Please Leave the Bronx, Totally False People and White Noise Radio Theatre. 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. To learn about past participants, visit the Past Festivals page (coming soon).
Audiences have overwhelmingly responded to SF Sketchfest’s diverse programming which has featured performers from every major North American television comedy smash of the last 25 years including Saturday Night Live, The Kids in the Hall, Mr. Show, Arrested Development, VEEP, The Upright Citizens Brigade, The State, Mystery Science Theatre 3000, Strangers With Candy, Key & Peele, The Simpsons, The Daily Show and more. SF Sketchfest offers its audiences the rare opportunity to see their favorite performers in intimate live performances and discussions.
