SF Sketchfest announced on Wednesday its 2018 lineup, which features several tributes to comic stars like Ricky Gervais, Jane Lynch and former talk show host Dick Cavett.
For its 17th year, SF SKetchfest is hosting more than 200 shows over 17 days. There’s plenty of old favorites from years past, such as live podcasts like Superego and Doug Loves Movies. But the biggest stars are attached to the one-off events, such as the tribute to the Twin Peaks, featuring several members of the show’s cast; and a 40th anniversary celebration of the classic comedy Animal House.
Other notable events include a tribute to the film Fist Foot Way with star Danny McBride and director Jody Hill; an afternoon with comedian Bill Burr, hosted by actor Kevin Pollak; and a spotlight on the FX show Better Things, which could be a hot topic as it was co-created by disgraced comic Louis C.K.
More acts are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
The festival runs from Jan. 11 through Jan. 28. Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 17 at noon. For more information, visit the SF Sketchfest website.
