SF Sketchfest will mount a tribute to Conan O'Brien this Saturday, July 17, when he will be interviewed by fellow comedian and friend to Amoeba Patton Oswalt at the Herbst Theater. Apparently there will be a special appearance by Andy Richter as well! This is a makeup date -- the event was originally scheduled to take place in January, when that whole little Tonight Show scuffle was going on...Hope Coco gets real about the whole ordeal while in conversation tomorrow night. Should be quite an interesting and no doubt hilarious onstage chat! Go here for tickets and more info!
