SF Sketchfest is nearly upon us. The two-week comedy festival, running Jan. 23-Feb. 9, 2014, for which the schedule will be announced tomorrow, has given SF Weekly an exclusive announcement about one of its biggest events.

On Sunday, Feb. 2, the director and cast of the acclaimed and great prematurely canceled HBO series, Enlightened, come to San Francisco for "Becoming 'Enlightened.'" Star Laura Dern, director Mike White, and producer David Bernad will all be present at the event, along with Luke Wilson, Sarah Burns, Timm Sharp, and Jason Mantzoukas.

The team will be at Marine's Memorial Theatre, and for $30 you can listen to their stories about the show and bring all your pressing Enlightened-related questions. Maybe like, what would've happened in that third season that never happened? Would Mantzoukas have ever returned? What about Dermot Mulroney?

The full lineup for the 'Fest will be announced tomorrow, so stay tuned. Tickets will go on sale next Sunday, Dec. 15, at sfsketchfest.com.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
