Selected Shorts: Too Hot For Radio

Selected Shorts: Too Hot For Radio

Saturday, Jan 26, 2019 at 7:30 PM 
Marines' Memorial Theatre, Second Floor
609 Sutter Street, San Francisco 

Selected Shorts: Too Hot For Radio with Hope Davis, host Aparna Nancherla and more

It's an evening of Selected Shorts you won't hear on public radio. We're showcasing amazing stories that, due to language issues or content advisories, are, well, too hot for radio! Join actors David Cross, Jane Kaczmarek, Lance Reddick, and David Strathairn as they read aloud humorous and saucy stories that are just a little too edgy for that hour on Sunday following Car Talk. Hosted by comedian and podcast host Aparna Nancherla. Selected Shorts is a radio show and podcast broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.

Part of the 18th Annual SF Sketchfest. The city’s greatest comedy festival, with a variety of sketch and improv, film and television tributes and reunions, solo performers, podcasts and stand-up comedy performers. See the greatest names live and in person!
