WORD: Litquake, Sketchfest partner to combine comedy and literature in SF
Edited Press Release

The S.F. Sketchfest is on! Litquake has teamed up this year with Sketchfest, the nationally-prominent comedy festival that takes place each January at venues around The City. Litquake said in a press releaase that it is co-presenting Celebrity Autobiography, the smash hit lit-meets-comedy event from New York City being performed here for the first time, in which an all-star cast reads hilarious celebrity memoirs live.

The cast includes "Saturday Night Live's" Jason Sudeikis, as well as Michael McKean ("This is Spinal Tap"), Annette O'Toole ("Smallville"), Rachel Dratch ("SNL"), Scott Thompson ("Kids in the Hall"), Laraine Newman ("SNL") and Celebrity Autobiography co-creators Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel.

Come and see what Time magazine calls "The funniest docu-theater stunt of the year." (Docu-theater? We still wish we'd thought of that!) Two performances on Monday, January 19, 7PM & 9PM at Cobb's Comedy Club, located at 915 Columbus Avenue at Lombard. Go to the Cobb's Comedy Club website for more information or to buy tickets.
