SF Sketchfest Tribute: Neil Patrick Harris in conversation
This event has endedSunday Jan 27, 2019
Tickets: $45 - $45
Neil Patrick Harris returns to SF Sketchfest, this time for a much-deserved celebration of his extraordinary, versatile, multi-award-winning career. Whether in TV, film, or onstage, he has created terrific, nuanced performances for characters such as Count Olaf in “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” Barney Stinson in “How I Met Your Mother,” Desi Collings in “Gone Girl,” Hedwig in Broadway’s “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” the eponymous Dr. Horrible, and countless others. He’s also known for his personal appearances hosting awards shows, game shows, variety shows and talk shows. And as if he weren’t busy enough, Neil also has a thriving career as a writer, director, producer and author, including his New York Times best-selling middle grade fiction series “The Magic Misfits.”
Palace of Fine Arts Theatre
3301 Lyon Street
San Francisco, CA 94123
Cross the Golden Gate Bridge and follow signs indicating Downtown San Francisco. Stay to the left and take the Marina exit; you’ll see the sign overhead. While you might be tempted to take a right at the first stop light (Lyon Street) and pull directly into the Palace of Fine Arts, pass the Lyon Street entrance and proceed straight on Marina Boulevard. Then:
NOTE: Avoid bearing left on Marina Boulevard; that stretch of Marina Boulevard turns into an onramp for Highway 101 and the Golden Gate Bridge. If you inadvertently end up on the approach to the Bridge, don’t worry; you’ll have a chance to exit to the right just before the toll plaza. You can then make your way back to the Palace of Fine Arts through the Presidio or retry the directions from above.
Cross the Bay Bridge. Follow the signs to the 9th Street exit. Stay in the right-hand lane. Go one block and turn right onto 9th Street. Stay in the left-hand lane. Immediately after Market Street, veer left onto Hayes Street. Then:
Take Highway 101 North to the Market Street/Van Ness exit. Take Van Ness to Lombard (look for signs to the Golden Gate Bridge). Turn left onto Lombard. Once on Lombard, get into the right-hand lane. Then:
Follow 19th Avenue through Golden Gate Park; 19th Avenue becomes Park Presidio Boulevard on the other side of the Park. Follow signs for the Highway 101 Detour. Then:
The Palace of Fine Arts Theatre has convenient access to public transportation. We are accessible by San Francisco Muni buses #30, #43, #28, and #29.

If you’re taking BART, get off at the Montgomery Street station, walk one half-block up Market Street to Third Street, and catch the #30 Stockton bus on the corner.
