My favorite Law & Order character * CELEB PICK
My favorite Law & Order character (01:13)
John Mulaney

CLANG CLANG! John Mulaney's detailing of his fave L&O face is hilarious and dead-on.

Taco Bell is misleading * CELEB PICK
Taco Bell is misleading (00:53)
Matt Braunger

We're happy to have Braunger back at SF Sketchfest this year. I remember auditioning for one of these atrocious Taco Bell commercials in LA (involving a nacho oven concealed as a pregnancy). Fourth meal is ridiculous.

Touching the Queen of England * CELEB PICK
Touching the Queen of England (01:35)
W. Kamau Bell

Who knew the Queen had so many rules? Kamau is one of my favorite stand-ups from back in my days at the old Cobb's Comedy Club in the Cannery. This bit is super funny.

Abercrombie and Fitch * CELEB PICK
Abercrombie and Fitch (01:16)
Chris Hardwick

Hardwick is a staple at the fest, whether he's doing stand-up or performing with Hard 'n Phirm. It was between this one and his Cracker Barrel bit, but every time I walk past the Abercrombie on the Promenade in Santa Monica I can't help but laugh.

Twisted breakup * CELEB PICK
Twisted breakup (01:26)
Maria Bamford

Maria's stand-up is such a wonderful hybrid of jokes and character work--no wonder Target snatched her up for all those awesome ads this past holiday.

The great cheese stick fight * CELEB PICK
The great cheese stick fight (02:09)
Dana Gould

Dana is making his first appearance at SF Sketchfest this year, and I'm thrilled we got him. This bit is second only to his one about the Werewolf changing his clothes. His writing is top notch, especially on all of those Simpsons episodes he did
