Fridays and Saturday through the end of the month, The Dark Room is home to “SF Sketchfest in the Mission,” a showcase of up-and-coming talents.

One such talent, The Birthday Boys, take the stage tonight. The above video is funny enough, but the thing that makes me think this could really be worthwhile is the following message I got last night from a comedy industry professional with every reason to be jaded and unimpressed:

Am currently at intermission for the TV Funhouse show and a group called The Birthday Boys opened. They were great (I was laughing a ton in the back – and I wouldn’t bs about comedy).

Showtime is 10:30pm. Also of note is an 8pm show featuring musical guest Uni and Her Ukelele.

    I’ll be teching the show, so I’ll be there! And the comedians that I’m most excited to see are THINGS WE MADE. I work with these guys once a month on a showcase they do at The Dark Room, and they’re flippin’ hilarious. They’ll be performing with the 10:30 show’s Birthday Boys and it’ll be awesome.

    Hope to see you there! I’ll be the girl in the black dress with polka dots and pink hair running lights and sound!

    Monday night is the Heather Gold Show at Eureka Theatre (it’s ok to leave the Mission occasionally, really…) … which should be great. Talk Show format of Comedians talking about Depression, hosted by former/occasional SF resident, Heather Gold.

    I’ll be there.
