Crisis Hopkins is a San Francisco-based improv and sketch comedy troupe that was formed in late 2006. They are named after an infamous 19th century San Francisco vagrant who interrupted the sermons of street preachers with the cry “The Fire and Brimstone preachers are gone, friends; Now Listen to Reason!” Crisis Hopkins is the sole producer of the 2010 San Francisco Improv Festival.
