Don’t Watch This Show Live was founded in 2012 by local stand-up comedians Bert DiVietri and Ryan Cronin as a project to change the landscape of the San Francisco Bay Area Comedy Scene.

What makes Don’t Watch This Show LIVE! different from other sketch comedy groups in the area is that they write and perform brand new sketches every month, with the occasional “Greatest Hits” shows occurring from time to time.

The show has performed at locations all over the Bay Area, including The Marsh Berkeley, Under The Sun Studios in Concord, and their current monthly home at StageWerx Theater in San Francisco.

The group has performed in every SF Sketchfest since its formation in 2012, they performed two sold out shows in January 2013 at the Dark Room Theater in San Francisco, featuring special guest cast member, comedian Brody Stevens, who has been seen on such TV shows as Conan, Chelsea Lately, and Children’s Hospital; and movies such as The Hangover parts I and II, and I Am Comic. In January 2014 the group graduated to the larger Eureka Theatre for Sketchfest 2014 where they played to another sold out audience.
