SF Sketchfest Tribute to Paul F. Tompkins

An SF Sketchfest staple for nearly every year, Paul F. Tompkins has long been a favorite of the festival's audiences and performers alike. This, of course, is just a microcosmic reflection of Paul F.'s reputation in the world at large: he is consistently named by critics, fans and peers in the alternative comedy world as one of the best and brightest, whether it be for his brilliant stand-up, past projects such as his long-running eponymous variety show, the delightful Dead Authors podcast, his much-lauded tv show "No, You Shut Up" and his decade of charming audiences as a Workjuice Player on The Thrilling Adventure Hour, or his current endeavors such as his roles on "Bajillion Dollar Properties" and "BoJack Horseman" and his podcast Spontaneanation (not to mention his significant musical chops!). This year we are so proud to pay tribute to this comedian, writer and actor who has been such an essential part of the spirit of SF Sketchfest. Paul F. will be joined in conversation by some of his friends and colleagues in this very special event, including surprise guests! $35

Due to a schedule conflict, Kulap Vilaysack will not be appearing.
