John Landis, Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, and Jerry Zucker appear at the Castro Theatre on Sunday, January 15, 2016 at 7:30pm to host a 40th anniversary screening of The Kentucky Fried Movie!
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.

ABOUT THE BOOK
What would you take? Imagine you were leaving for a new country, and could bring along only what would fit in a small suitcase. Which things would you choose to say to the world, “Hi there, this is me!”
New York Times bestselling author and award-winning actress Jamie Lee Curtis, working with her longtime illustrator Laura Cornell, brings her whimsical verse to the subject of immigration and identity. In this picture book, various children—inspired by their remarkable teacher—talk about what they’d bring with them if they could only take one suitcase to their new home: photographs, a favorite book, grandfather’s beret. Which things do they love most? What best expresses who they are? At the end, the question is posed to the reader: “What would you take? Which things would say to the world, this is me!” The book ends with a pop-up suitcase, which the child can then fill with his or her favorite things. It opens with a teacher reading to her class… “My great-grandmother came from a far, distant place. She came on a boat with just this small case.” And ends with an exercise where the child reading would decide what of his or her own items would be packed into the provided suitcase if faced with needing to make that decision. The last spread is a pop up suitcase that can be filled!
