Night of the Shorts - SF Sketchfest 2015

Please choose a format above.

Performed live at SF Sketchfest to rave reviews, now available for download, it’s Night of the Shorts: A Good Day to Riff Hard!

Mike, Kevin, and Bill take on some of the funniest, most unbelievable vintage shorts we've ever found, live in the beautiful Castro Theatre with a crew of hilarious guest riffers!

Hilarious guest riffers, you ask? Like who, you go on to ask? Hey, thanks for asking both of those questions! Joining the guys on stage we've got John Hodgman, Paul F. Tompkins, Todd Barry, Janet Varney, and Cole Stratton! Laughs are laughed! Friendships are formed! Affectionate attachments between certain guest riffers and certain educational short characters are also formed! (ahem Hodgman ahem)

And for the finale, in an insane gambit we've never attempted before, the entire crew of guests on stage at once for an all hands on deck riffing of perhaps our favorite and most inexplicable short of all time, Setting Up a Room. What results is the best kind of madness, and a one-of-a-kind show you don’t want to miss!

Shorts performed during this event include One Turkey Two Turkey, Setting Up a Room, Writing Better Social Letters, Live and Learn, Making Sense with Sentences, and Safety - In Danger Out of Doors.

WARNING: Contains some F-bombs.
