Neil Patrick Harris Out of Sketchfest, Jason Segel In

Sketchfest suffered another cancellation this week. Neil Patrick Harris, he of Doogie Howser, M.D., How I Met Your Mother, and the Harold & Kumar movie series ("Sorry man, it was a dick move"), will not be part of the sold out "Celebrity Autobiography" series next weekend. The guy has some sort of "previously unforseen" business out of the country.

We were about to be really sad about this news, until we saw who's going to replace Harris: Jason Segal, the dashing star of the eiptome of "bromance" movies, I Love You, Man. He was a Rush-obsessed high school drummer in Freaks and Geeks before making it on the big screen with Forgetting Sarah Marshall. And he seems like a really funny guy.

For "Celebrity Autobiography," Segal will be joined by Fred Willard, Rachel Dratch, and a half-dozen other funny folks at Cobb's on Jan. 30 and 31.

  • 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.'"
