Erasing traditional stand-up conventions, Picture This! pairs local comedians with talented artists who add some visual punch to their routines by live-illustrating the sets.  With the projected images unfolding behind them, the comics often become part of the joke, as they have no way of knowing exactly how their bits are being depicted by the artists — who this month include Sega game artist Sean Keeton and Oakland illustrator Zachary Sweet.
