Bay seniors with grinning memories of “The Committee” and SF’s heyday of comedy, improvisational and otherwise, might enjoy checking out the 2016 version called Sketchfest which runs until January 24 at venues around town. Of special interest is an evening of the Upright Citizens Brigade from LA. Its alumni include Amy Poehler and Aziz Ansari. Sally Fields will be hosting on January 23($35). Speaking of unique venues I definitely will be visiting the Alamo Drafthouse, the renovated movie theater on Mission Street which was until recently an abandoned wreck. Now showing new and classic movies along with beer and cocktails. The Geezer applauds loudly. For more smart laughs Stephen Colbert is highly recommended.
