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

We comb through dozens of genuine internet dating sites and select the real personal ads of actual people.

Then improvisors who have not seen these profiles become characters based on them.

The audience decides who dates whom and we see the world of dating through the eyes of prisoners, furries, goths and maybe even Republicans.

Millions of people are looking for love - see if these freaks get any!
