Every Thursday night is different—here's the scoop for this week's NightLife event:

Laugh your face off as SF Sketchfest takes over the Academy for a knee-slapping night of creatures, cocktails, and comedy, part of the annual SF Sketchfest Comedy Festival.


Join us for a night of irreverent science, featuring a live version of the comedy podcast “This Week in Science,” and an interactive game called “Thinkers and Drinkers”, which combines two of our favorite things: booze and science. You’ll ask a panel of scientists some of life’s toughest questions; they’ll play a drinking game and (attempt) to deliver brilliant answers.

The main Piazza stage will be a showcase for a stand-up comedy lineup featuring Bay Area favorites Nicole Calasich, Imran G, and Valerie Vernal, and visiting comics Shain Brendan, Dana Gould, Shannon Noll, Greg Santos, Eddie Della Siepe, and Blake Weller.

For fans of The Evil Dead: IFC’s Stan Against Evil, created by Dana Gould, is a horror-comedy about two small town sheriffs fighting supernatural demons; cast members Deborah Baker, Jr., Nate Mooney, Steven Ogg, and Janet Varney will talk about fighting the forces of evil.

And finally, don’t forget to take a “Sketchy Tour of the Night Sky,” the annual opportunity for our planetarium presenters to do their best space-themed stand-up.
