SF Sketchfest is thrilled to celebrate the 40th anniversary of “The Kentucky Fried Movie,” the mother of all sketch comedy anthology films. Written by a Wisconsin-based comedy trio known as Kentucky Fried Theater (Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker) and directed by comedy filmmaking icon John Landis, the groundbreaking film has achieved cult classic status. Zucker, Abrahams & Zucker went on to create the classic comedies “Airplane!” and “The Naked Gun!” and Landis went on to direct “National Lampoon’s Animal House,” “The Blues Brothers,” “Clue,” “Three Amigos!” and many more. This rare reunion of four incredible comedy legends is a must-see.

Press Release:

Yes, it’s been 30 years since “Top Gun.” But never mind that. It’s been 25 years since the hysterical parody “Hot Shots!” debuted and we’re celebrating!

Watch as Topper Harley (Charlie Sheen) flips for Ramada (Valeria Golino), goes to war, and saves the day alongside cohorts Kent (Cary Elwes), Wash-Out (Jon Cryer) and Admiral Tug Benson (Lloyd Bridges, in a hilarious and ridiculous performance).

Legendary comedy filmmakers Jim Abrahams and Pat Proft will be on hand for a special screening and Q&A at the Castro Theatre on Saturday, January 9, 2016 at 7:00 PM. Director and co-writer Jim Abrahams is 1/3 of the infamous ZAZ trio, alongside David Zucker and Jerry Zucker, who created the comedies “Airplane!, “The Naked Gun,” “Kentucky Fried Movie” and “Top Secret.” Co-writer Pat Proft co-wrote the “Naked Gun” trilogy as well as the screenplays for “Police Academy” and “Bachelor Party.”
