Reason to Hope for More Reno 911: Five Highlights of Sketchfest Comedy Nightlife

Comedians stood in front of hundreds of guests for Sketchfest Comedy Nightlife at the Academy of Science. “Where are my nerds?” one hollered, which was just one of the many punches thrown at nerds for attending a nighttime event at a museum. The crowd loved it.

Here's what you missed.

5. Chocolate Layer Cake. The unfunniest part of the night was this godly, decadent slice of immaculate richness. Served in the dessert counter of the cafeteria next to puny yogurt parfaits, this beast of a slice was the perfect mix of dark chocolate and sour cream.

4. Josh Gondelman's pre-school politics. The NYC comedian confessed he left his job as a pre-school teacher because it was “depressing.” He says he explained Massachusetts' legalization of gay marriage  to his young students, and pointed out that three-year-old boys might like being able to marry their best friends and avoid cooties. “It would be like a never-ending sleepover. We could play with trucks until midnight.” 3. “Bad Mom Impression.” Will Franken of SF stuck out his belly to impersonate a pregnant women, then smoked his pretend cigarette. Pregnant Franken then snarled at the sight of his belly, began punching it, and yelled “Get out! Get out! Get out!”
