Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

SOLD OUT --  Tickets may be available at the door night-of. See http://sfsketchfest.com/x/how-to-purchase/ for info.

Hosted by Lauren Maul, Calvin Cato, and Katie Compa, "Dudes Being Dudes Being Dudes" is a stand-up showcase with a twist-- it features all women and gay men, dressed up as straight “dudes,” and telling typical straight dude “jokes.” Performers dress up as the macho, heterosexual, entitled, self-confident comedians you can find at any open mike around the world, and perform sets about popular topics including hating cunnilingus, striking out with women (sometimes aka “bitches”), and mentioning casually that they could be important executives in their spare time, if they wanted to. But they don’t, okay? $15 All Ages

Katie Compa

Growing up an ugly duckling, Katie Compa developed a biting sense of humor as a highly effective defense mechanism. Now, she uses it to write and perform comedy. Equal parts sassy, smart, and sarcastic, Katie’s mile-a-minute delivery and critical, reasoned point of view crack up audiences across the U.S. and Europe. Katie is based in New York City, and performs regularly on both coasts (and in between).

She's the brain behind two monthly comedy shows-- a musical variety show called "Bitchcraft!" and "Dudes Being Dudes Being Dudes"-- a show where gay men and ladies dress up like straight men and do stand-up in character.
