    Now that Conan O'Brien is back on the air and winning the late night wars again the San Francisco Sketchfest shouldn't have to worry about its biggest draw cancelling on them.

    Last year Team CoCo was scheduled to appear at the San Francisco comedy festival but he was forced to back out because he was caught in the midst of his ouster from NBC.

    This year the Sketchfest returns for three weeks of hilarity and a cast of characters whose families' bellies have not been filled based on television appearances in years.

    The festival returns Thursday night and runs through Feb. 5 at venues across the City with comedians and actors such as Dan Aykroyd, Garry Shandling, Neil Patrick Harris and more.

    Opening night takes places at the Marines' Memorial Theatre with appearances by the Upright Citizens Brigade, Tim Meadows and Andrew Daly.
