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.

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
