Jo Firestone's Friends of Single People / Solomon Georgio (SOLD OUT)

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.

Friends of Single People is the only show where you get to speak on behalf of your single friends onstage in a live dating game. The bachelor, the bachelorettes -- everyone onstage is speaking on behalf of their single friends! No one knows who anyone is until the very end! If you can comfortably answer questions like "If you were an ice cream flavor, what would you be and why?" about your friend, then you are qualified to take part. Your single friends may cringe and remain as anonymous as they want in the crowd, unless you get them a match! Newly matched single people win two complimentary drinks which they must redeem immediately and together offstage. The New York Post calls Friends Of Single People "part roast, part game-show, part social experiment". Arrive early to register you and a friend. Open to all orientations. Out of every 100 couples matched, 5 couples manage to develop actual long term relationships. One couple just went on a trip to Paris and then moved in together. It's amazing and defies all odds. Hosted by Jo Firestone ("Broad City," "The Chris Gethard Show"). If you want to sign up in advance to participate, please contact boxoffice@sfsketchfest.com with “FOSP” in the subject line, after purchasing your tickets! Include your name and your single friend’s name, gender and sexual orientation, so that Jo can find the right special person for your friend! ,/b>

Solomon Georgio burst out of the Seattle comedy scene with his own brand of indignant irreverence. He flawlessly intertwines biting social commentary with stories of his life as an openly gay African immigrant. He is a finalist of NBC’s "Stand Up for Diversity," a regular performer at the Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival (Seattle, WA) and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival (Portland, OR). Solomon recently had his television debut in February 2015 as the featured comedian on "Conan," and immediately followed it up with an appearance on "Last Call with Carson Daily." He will also be the host of several episodes of the upcoming Lance Bang project for Vice, "Flophouse." $15 All Ages
