Sketchfest Renders S.F. a City Under Comic Seige

Is there any comic more suited to an old-time radio play than John Hodgman, with his everyday suits, sometimes-mustache, and thin, delicate fingers? Of course not. He appears Sunday night in an old-time radio play, The Thrilling Adventure Hour at Marines Memorial Theatre, one of the many events at SF Sketchfest that make you realize that the title's “sketch” is an old-time quirk — this year's fest has only three true sketch shows. Hodgman is joined Sunday by Paul F. Tompkins, Andy Richter, and Kevin Pollak, who is rumored to be doing his old-time role as Christopher Walken making a Cobb salad (that's a lie). Later, Richter moderates a tribute show with Upright Citizens Brigade, featuring Amy Poehler and company, and later still, Twitter-ace Michael Ian Black appears with his old Stella TV series classmates. And we're not done yet. Not close to it.
