SF Sketchfest: Cast Reunion (and Radio Play) for Cult Comedy Wet Hot American Summer

In 2001's Wet Hot American Summer -- a raucous send-up of 1980s summer-camp movies -- the counselors vow to meet up 10 years later in 1991, when they'll all be in their late 20s, to see how they've fared. And…

Calendar, Night&Day Long on Wit

Long on Wit

Jim Short is a literate comic, but not one who takes pains to demonstrate what a smarty-pants he is. Unlike David Cross, Short isn’t throwing out the occasional Lexis-Nexis reference. Regardless, the San Francisco comic is sharp and tart in…

Big Fan

Patton Oswalt straddles the mainstream and alt-comedy worlds, which has proven to be an uneasy negotiation. Look no further than his 2008 pissing match with David Cross over whether Cross’s role in the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie undermined his…

The Heff

Being your stereotypically effete, latte-swilling elites, we’re not usually fans of broad, populist comedy: Our tastes run more toward David Cross than Jeff Dunham; 30 Rock rather than Two and a Half Men. If there aren’t jokes about the impending…

Super Cross

David Cross has made a career offending people who offend him, which isn’t a bad way to go for a stand-up comic. A few years back he had to defend himself from fans, who objected to his starring role in…

Worth the Gamble

For pure cinema, nothing rivals a high-stakes, full-tilt poker game — unless it's somebody landing on Ventnor Avenue with two houses, or sending an opponent to the backgammon bar with double threes, or laying down a four with a bloodcurdling…

Mr. Show's Cross, Odenkirk Star in New HBO Series

The General

By now, everyone should know (as much as these things are generally known) who voiced the lead rat Remy in Ratatouille -- Patton Oswalt. Although the role seems more in line with a mainstream figure like Tom Hanks or Robin…

The snorification of indie rock

"When did indie rock get so boring?" That was the question posed by my fellow showgoer at Noise Pop's opening-night bash once Tapes 'n' Tapes launched into their set. And I hate to say it, but he was right. Here…

Nuts to You

Hollywood's a sucker for cross-dressing. When the American Film Institute chose the 100 greatest comedies of all time, a pair of drag films -- Some Like It Hot and Tootsie -- earned the top two slots. From Operation Petticoat to…

Charlotte's Web

ONGOING 6/8-8/31 With an over-the-top story line about a batty spinster slowly decaying in her antebellum mansion, the 1964 Bette Davis film Hush ... Hush Sweet Charlotte was ripe for a drag queen sendup. And with the original's train-wreck scenes…

The Tinkerers

It all started back in the mid- to late '90s. As neo-grunge, nu-metal, teeny-pop, and bling-bling ruled the airwaves, the underground was thriving. Indie rock was everywhere, electronic music was splintering into dozens of subgenres, and "conscious" hip hop was…

Me Talk Pretty

It's been a rough couple of weeks, hasn't it? Hurricanes have ravaged Florida, Johnny Ramone has gone to that big CBGB's in the sky, and John Kerry can't seem to capitalize on Dubya's piss-poor record. Personally, I'm in need of…
