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!
