Free SF Sketchfest Events 2020

Every year there are a handfull of free SF Sketchfest comedy events. We’ll update our 2020 list soon.

Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast is a show that features other comedy soundcasts (AKA “podcasts”) and in an effort to not only expose audiences to the wide range of comedy offerings available, but also to broaden the appeal of podcasts in general.

Hosted by Marc Hershon, whose background in the worlds of comedy, writing and product naming gives him the chops necessary to come off sounding like a blustering know-it-all.


Bill Heywatt
America’s Second Favorite Assistant Booth Announcer – is proud to have been a part of Succotash from the “get-go”. Bill’s resume reads like a road map of small-town USA, spending decades filling in for the pros at stations like KHIH-AM in Honolulu, HI, KCUF “The Boss 690” in Crescent City CA, WKKK-TV in Montgomery AL, KSDC-TV in Grand Forks ND, and WJJP-TV in Joplin, MO to name but a few.

Cole Stratton
Cole Stratton wears a lot of hats. Not literal ones, as he has a tiny head and it just doesn’t look right. He is the co-founder of SF Sketchfest, the San Francisco Comedy Festival, a month-long annual event highlighting the best in improv, sketch, stand-up, TV and film comedy.

Marc Hershon
Marc Hershon, host and executive producer of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, likes to think of himself as a Renaissance Man minus the Black Plague.

Paco Romane
Paco Romane’s authentic, engaging, and unpredictable style has established him as an audience favorite. His act is a “mashup of all things funny – stand up, sketch, improv, you name it” – and with his experience in improv and sketch comedy he’ll regularly spin any live moment with the crowd into his act. Paco has appeared on Comedy Central, is a frequent guest on The Todd Glass Show and was twice voted Best Comedian in San Francisco.
