Jessica Sele

Hopefully you’re not all Sketchfested out because the VPs are back at Lost Weekend on Friday, February 27th for an extravaganza of merriment and mayhem.

This Month’s Guests:
Richard Toomer (Storking Comedy, believes in dinosaurs)
Jessica Sele (Mission Position, drummer enthusiast)
Mikey Walz (plays the ukulele sometimes)

and headliner Drew Platt (SF Punch Line, pride of the Mississipp’)

and of course your VPs Allison Mick, Hayden Greif-Neill, Erik Krasner, Walker Glenn.

Space is limited so buy tickets early and often!


With her patented and highly personal take on sex, race, sexuality and society at large, Jessica Sele has become one of my favorite comics to watch. If you are in the bay area, you’ll be spoiled with opportunities to see her this week @ both the Good Bellies show hosted by George Chen, and her Bitchslap! Presents headliner set at the Exit Theater hosted by another RTTG favorite Eloisa Bravo. Click the links for details and come out to watch Jessica prove what no one should have to: not only are women smart and funny, but sometimes they’re smarter and funnier than most men.


Saturday Nov 29th

Clare O'Kane, Alison Stevenson, and Megan Koester are BLESSED.

They make sketch comedy videos, and perform stand up comedy. Combined, they are almost as funny as one man.

More importantly, they are going to be in San Francisco to debut their first ever LIVE BLESSED SHOW.

What will this show entail? The video sketches as mentioned above, as well as the stand up comedy mentioned above, but also some live sketch things that will blow your frickin’ mindddd

With special guest…

Jessica Sele!!!!

“A night of priceless comedy” -SF Weekly

Hand to Mouth is a one-of-a-kind show that asks comedians to write and perform all new material on a specific social, cultural or political issue. One show, one topic. Comedians Trevor Hill & Jesse Hett assemble the brightest comics in San Francisco and beyond to find the funny in such topics as commercialism, technology, gender and conspiracy theories. Performers include up-and-comers alongside veteran comics who have appeared on NBC, MTV, E! and Comedy Central. The show has appeared at SF Sketchfest and the Sacramento Comedy Festival, where it was named “Best of Fest”. Hand to Mouth uses a mixture of stand-up, debate, video and multimedia presentations in order to provide the audience with not only laughs, but a sense of edification. “It would appear allowing comedians to stretch their creativity to encompass yet redefine a specific theme is as good for them as it was for us.” -San Francisco Guardian

April’s topic: Wildlife!

On Friday 4/17, comedians Matt Gubser (SF Sketchfest), Jessica Sele (Mission Position), Imran G (San Jose Improv), Zack Chapaloni (Punch Line) and Danielle Perez (Flappers) will join Trevor & Jesse on a comedic safari of all things wildlife,animals, flora, fauna,creatures, critters and non-domesticated varmints of all stripes.

Also featuring The Mouth Off, where comics Ben Kolina and Ron Chapmanwill debate which flightless bird reigns supreme: ostriches or penguins?
