Too Hot for Radio at San Francisco Sketchfest
January 26, 2018 at 7:30 pm
Too Hot for Radio heads to San Francisco Sketchfest for an evening of Selected Shorts you won't hear on public radio. We're showcasing amazing stories that, due to language issues or content advisories, are, well, too hot for radio! Join actors David Cross (Arrested Development), Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle), Lance Reddick (The Wire), and David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck) as they read aloud humorous and saucy stories that are just a little too edgy for that hour on Sunday following Car Talk. Hosted by comedian and podcast host Aparna Nancherla (Blue Woman Group).
Selected Shorts is a radio show and podcast broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.
Co-presented by Litquake.
This event is at the Marines' Memorial Theatre
