As you may have guessed from the previous post, the 14th Annual San Francisco Sketchfest is in full swing. I don’t get to Sketchfest every year, but I’ve been a big fan for a while. In fact, in 2007 I interviewed festival founders Janet Varney, Cole Stratton, and David Owen for a Santa Cruz Sentinel article, which appears here on the Sketchfest website. (While I plan to mention the byline typo to someone there, I was happy to see the story again.)
One event I plan to attend is Stardumb, billed as “an offbeat comedy hybrid that examines the silly side of celebrity” featuring “questions and categories that probe the career foibles of celeb panelists.” One panelist is Kevin McDonald, from the beloved long-running sketch troupe The Kids In The Hall (and, more recently, the short-lived but Elizabeth-favored cartoon show Catscratch). I don’t know the logistics of the Stardumb format itself, but is anyone else hoping McDonald will get to do this?
