SF Sketchfest, The San Francisco Comedy Festival, presents a 25th anniversary tribute to It's Garry Shandling's Show, welcoming Emmy Award-winning comic actor and writer Garry Shandling and co-creator Alan Zweibel to celebrate the critically acclaimed series, famous for its innovation in breaking the "fourth wall" to a degree never before seen on television. The event will be moderated by Zach Braff (Scrubs, Garden State).
Garry Shandling also created and starred in the groundbreaking The Larry Sanders Show, guest-hosted The Tonight Show many times, hosted both the Emmy Awards and the Grammy Awards, wrote and starred in the film What Planet Are You From and appeared in the films Hurlyburly, Love Affair, Trust the Man and Iron Man 2. Best-selling author Alan Zweibel's comic resume includes the original Saturday Night Live, Monk, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and collaborating with Billy Crystal on the Tony Award-winning play 700 Sundays. This rare evening will feature an onstage conversation and audience Q&A.
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.
