San Francisco Sketchfest is a huge event that for over a decade has featured truely great comics doing all sorts of improv, interviews, sketch, stand-up, screenings, and now storytime.
Yup. Joining the SF Sketchfest lineup this year will be a show entitled Don’t Let The Comedians Do Story Time! that will feature some of your favorite comics turning my books into sketches.
It should be a great time, including the world premier reading (and sketch-reading) of my yet unpublished picture book, THAT IS NOT A GOOD IDEA!
There will be sketches, audience participation, drawing, goodies, and more, followed by a book signing.
This is a one-time only kind of deal and (as you can tell) I'm excited about it.
Here's the skinny:
