SF Sketchfest is thrilled to celebrate the 40th anniversary of "The Kentucky Fried Movie," the mother of all sketch comedy anthology films. Written by a Wisconsin-based comedy trio known as Kentucky Fried Theater (Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker) and directed by comedy filmmaking icon John Landis, the groundbreaking film has achieved cult classic status. Zucker, Abrahams & Zucker went on to create the classic comedies "Airplane!" and "The Naked Gun!" and Landis went on to direct "National Lampoon's Animal House," "The Blues Brothers," "Clue," "Three Amigos!" and many more. This rare reunion of four incredible comedy legends is a must-see. $25
