Why David isn’t headlining Sketchfest this year I will never know.

Jewish vs. Goyish

I’m Jewish by birth, but I’ve never been completely sure what that means. I found this new video from our buddy Dan Wolf and the JCCSF’s 3200 Stories featuring Josh Healey to be pretty helpful and hilarious:

Chris Garcia on This American Life

Comedian Chris Garcia, who once did a standup act almost entirely about the Mission, was on last week’s This American Life! Check it out:

Chris Garcia and his dad were driving home, listening to oldies, sharing a bag of chips. A totally familiar scene for them. They’d driven this route probably hundreds of time, but something odd was happening in the car, so Chris started recording their conversation on his phone. He tells producer Nancy Updike what happened.

Well done, Chris! Listen here.

Also, Chris headlines at Punchline here in SF on December 4th. Get tickets (and see what Robin Williams has to say about him) here.

Meanwhile, in Palo Alto . . .

Like Lyft, but for combo TV/VCRs

Whadda ya think? Anyone want to get this idea kick-started with me? Maybe it qualifies as bespoke. We could market to the dudes in line to get the haircuts on 18th and Guerrero, they’ll spend money on anything. Hats might not be as cool as mustaches (yet), but at least it’s not more ridiculous looking.

Local favorite Chris Thayer opens for Hollywood superstar Chris Hardwick all this week at Cobb’s

The Real (fake) Wolverine

Sure, they have movies at places like The Metreon, where you can get some fro-yo in the lobby, or Sundance Kabuki Cinemas where you can pay a mandatory convenience fee because they compost, or you can see a movie at The Balboa, where they show you a whole ‘nother mini movie before the actual movie! Check out The Wolverine, starring a few buddies of ours:

Cynic Cave: Live comedy in a basement on Valencia Street

Fantasy BART

Prompted by the very popular map of SF for New Yorkers we posted just a little while ago, @mrsketchee shared this fantasy of a New York-style subway system in SF.

Can you imagine???
