Yes yes yes, Zach Galifianakis has just been added to the Sketchfest lineup. And indeed, tonight's options also include the It's Garry Shandling's Show tribute as well as the RiffTrax show. We swing local, as usual, though: Iron Comic with Nato Green makes us proud. The concept is just how it sounds: Matt Braunger, Emily Heller, Sean Keane, Conor Kellicut, Brendan Lynch, and others make shit up on the spot. We're especially excited about Heller, whose brand of observational stand-up has been killing us all over the city lately. Uh, let's see, how do we make her sound good to you tourists? "She's hot!" "She's got buzz!" "She's among the Top Five!" And here's how we scare you off: "She's a feminist!" Host Green was our Best Comic of 2010, and he just keeps getting smarter and faster; we've seen him flay, gut, smoke, and eat hecklers in his relaxed, very Bay-Area way, no need to break a sweat.
