SF Sketchfest presents a dozen hand-picked stand-up comedians on the rise—names you might not know now, but will be hearing a lot from soon.
Hey! I'm April Richardson. I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, and now reside in Los Angeles. I really, really enjoy performing stand-up comedy and have done so at places like Comedy Death-Ray, Portland's Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Seattle's Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival, and more fancy names that may (or may not?) impress you. (I also made Glenn Danzig laugh once, true story so I'M LEGIT.) I've written things for MTV and been published in various magazines and books (remember those?), so that's pretty cool, right? I spend my days working on E!'s hit show Chelsea Lately, and my nights watching Food Network.
