Porchlight, A Storytelling Series collaborates with nearly everyone (SF Film Fest, Creativity Explored, the Bay Area Science Festival), but its ongoing gig with SF Sketchfest, a local comedy festival, might be the most natural match — what better mix than punchline pros and truthful tales, told without the aid of notes? The all-star lineup includes Porchlight favorite Anthony Bedard, who seems to have a grab bag of stories for every occasion; the 2013 East Bay Express best comedian Caitlin Gill; Kids in the Hall founder Kevin McDonald; hilarious, proud-to-be-rude straight-talker Anna Seregina; Nick Thune of Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and The Tonight Show notoriety; and Los Angeles-based April Richardson, who produces Chelsea Handler's show and writes personal-experience-based stand-up. Porchlight founders Beth Lisick and Arline Klatte will host the show, themed "tough guy."
