From our friends at Litquake:
Litquake is pleased as punch to team up this year with SKETCHFEST, the nationally-prominent comedy festival that takes place each January at venues around The City! We will be co-presenting Celebrity Autobiography, the smash hit lit-meets-comedy event from New York City being performed here for the first time, in which an all-star cast reads hilarious celebrity memoirs live.

The cast includes “Saturday Night Live’s” Jason Sudeikis, as well as Michael McKean (“This is Spinal Tap”), Annette O’Toole (“Smallville”), Rachel Dratch (“SNL”), Scott Thompson (“Kids in the Hall”), Laraine Newman (“SNL”) and Celebrity Autobiography co-creators Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel.

Come and see what Time magazine calls “The funniest docu-theater stunt of the year.” (Docu-theater? We wish we’d thought of that!)

Two performances on Monday, January 19, 7pm & 9pm at Cobb’s Comedy Club, 915 Columbus Avenue (@Lombard).  http://www.cobbscomedyclub.com/

While you’re at it, check out the incredible Sketchfest lineup this year! Very impressive!

Since its founding in 1999, the festival has presented close to 1,400 author appearances for an audience of over 32,000 in its lively and inclusive celebration of San Francisco’s thriving contemporary literary scene. Litquake seeks to foster interest in literature, perpetuate a sense of literary community, and provide a vibrant forum for Bay Area writing as a complement to the city’s music, film, and cultural festivals.
