JUST ADDED – Emily Candini will be playing Saturday’s Messing with a Friend at 8:30PM!!

The San Francisco Improv Festival is excited to announce the addition of Emily Candini to the already deep bench of talent on Saturday night. Emily will be ‘Messed with’ by the ridiculous and ridiculously skilled Susan Messing in the 8:30 PM show on the Saturday double bill with Uncle’s Brother.

Tickets are selling really fast for this show, so get ’em now!!


Emily Candini is a California native who has been performing for over 20 years.

Obsessively in love with comedy since the age of two, she has always known her path. After years of modern and classical theater she moved to Mecca (Chicago) to study improvisation, writing and sketch with The Second City, iO Chicago and Annoyance theaters.

After six years of writing and acting in exactly one million original shows and improvising in just over a fafillion more shows, she moved to Los Angeles. Emily has won many useless awards including a Ducky (Annoyance Theater) and Del Close Awards (iO Chicago). In the past she has traveled the country and abroad performing in improv and comedy festivals in Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago and The Del Close Marathon.

In 2010 Emily played Karen in the film All My Friends Are Funeral Singers which went to the Sundance and SXSW Film Festivals. Since arriving in Los Angeles Emily can be seen performing at The Second City, iO West and the UCB Theaters.
