Others being worse doesn’t make you good.

The Onion’s coming to San Francisco

My brother is coming to town next week from Brooklyn. He’s a writer for The Onion. He’s on a panel as part of SF Sketchfest, a sketch comedy festival.

He’s joined on the panel by two other Onion writers (of six total) and the editor, as well as Dave Eggers. They go 8pm, Monday January 24th, at Cobb’s Comedy Club in SF.
