SF – Dr. Katz LIVE

0000-dr-katz-live

Jonathan Katz appears with special guests Janeane Garofalo, Andy Kindler, Chelsea Peretti, Maria Bamford, and The Sklar Brothers on Saturday, January 23 at 7:30 PM!

Dr. Katz Live is a stage variation of the animated show, Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist, created by Jonathan Katz and Tom Snyder for Comedy Central. It premiered in 1995, earning the network its first Emmy and Peabody awards and introducing the term “squigglevision” to the English language. The show has rightfully gone on to become a cult classic.

The live version (much like the cartoon version) of Dr. Katz, brings well-known standups to the good doctor’s couch, using the quirks and idiosyncrasies of their comedy acts to analyze their various conflicted issues. $35 All Ages

Presented as part of SF Sketchfest!

SF – Hook 25th Anniversary Screening

0000-hook

Join SF Sketchfest on Saturday January 9, 2016 at 11:30 AM to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of “Hook” with special “Lost Boy” guests Dante Basco (Rufio) and James Madio (Don’t Ask) for a Q&A hosted by Alamo Drafthouse’s Henri Mazza, and participate in our interactive viewing party with props we’ll provide you when you arrive. Costumes encouraged! Bring the kids! $20 All Ages

Hard to believe, but it’s been 25 years since we were first introduced to Steven Spielberg’s grown-up Peter Pan (the wonderful Robin Williams), his trusty sidekick Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts), and a look at the world of Never Never Land in a way we’d never seen it before, complete with the nefarious Captain Hook (the dazzlingly- tressed Dustin Hoffman) and a very unique group of Lost Boys.
