Talkies is San Francisco’s best unconventional, experimental, and multi-media live comedy event! Every month comedians, writers, improvisers, and performers work outside of their regular routines to push the boundaries of comedy; slideshows, characters, oddball short films and off-stage antics are all the order of the day.
Since its beginnings in the basement of San Francisco’s Lost Weekend Video, this monthly variety show has been an incubator for many unique comedy talents spreading their wings on weird flights of fancy. Past guest performers have included Brent Weinbach, Ron Lynch, Myq Kaplan, Kate Rhoades, Eugene S. Robinson, Sad Vicious, Calvin Johnson, Beth Lisick, and Steve Lambert. The show is a regular feature of SF Sketchfest and almost always sells out.
The show is presented by the Talkies regulars Scott Vermeire, Nick Stargu, Aviva Siegel, Land Smith, and technical wizard Will Scovill.
