SF Sketchfest, The San Francisco Comedy Festival, presents Airplane! on the big screen with a special tribute to the writing and directing team of Jim Abrahams and the Zucker brothers, David and Jerry, who were also responsible for comedy classics The Naked Gun, Kentucky Fried Movie, Top Secret and Police Squad! Joining the team onstage for a rollicking conversation will be their leading man Robert Hays ("Ted Striker") and moderator Chris Hardwick (Web Soup) for an evening of funny stories and audience Q&A.Airplane!, one of the most beloved comedy films of all time, was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, in 1980 and is number ten on AFI's "100 Years…100 Laughs" list. Fasten your seatbelts for the film that brought us Ted Striker's "drinking problem," Otto Pilot, jive-talking Barbara Billingsley, a feud over the uses of the red zone and the white zone, and the reinvention of the wonderful Leslie Nielsen as a comedy superstar. Surely you will have a great time. And don't call me Shirley.
The 10th annual SF Sketchfest runs January 13 - February 5 at various venues in the city. Visit http://sfsketchfest.com/schedule/ to see the whole amazing line-up.
