Just as TechCrunch Disrupt's product demos offer a glimpse into the future of technology, this show doesn't do that at all. At Cultivated Wit's Comedy Hack Day Finals, six teams of comedians and developers will present tech demos that—while totally real and functional—won't change this or any other world. Celebrity judges grill each team with questions and ultimately decide who wins the grand prize of $0 dollars in angel investment. $25, 
18 and up; Children 6 and up will be allowed only with an adult. No children under the age of 6 will be allowed.

Unfortunately Judah Friedlander has to cancel all shows this week due to voice strain, including his SF Sketchfest appearances and an appearance on @midnight. Judah will get 100% better, and will come back to San Francisco soon.
