Drunk Vs. High

You think you’re funnier when you’re drunk?
or maybe when you’re hiiiiIIIIIIIIGGH?

Well so do these two teams!
One group will drink deep from the well of Booze, whilst the other rides the green train. Then they’ll do their best to entertain you. You pick who’s funniest…

You could imbibe too… no pressure. Enjoy!

But please drink (and smoke) responsibly!

Make sure to get your tickets as this show will sell out.

Duck Duck Scissors feat. Jesse Mercury

Don’t miss this Duck Duck Scissors featuring Synthpop Artist Jesse Mercury!

Duck Duck Scissors delivers Armando-style improv inspired by the real-life stories, songs, and stylings of Seattle’s most endearing and amazing artists. With just a touch of bullshit for good measure. Comedians, singers, dancers, clowns, and anyone in between take the stage to regale you with real tales from their life inspired by suggestions from you. Then Duck Duck Scissors performs fast and furious improv inspired by those stories.

This month features the jaw-dropping Jesse Mercury performing future-techno-scifi songs to amaze!

He’s a cosmic entity flung out of time from the year 3000 who has become Seattle’s favorite Synthpop Superstar and Scifi Podcast Host. He sends musical love waves into the universe to signal help from the timestream to get himself back home at shows like Tiny Baby Talk Show, Super Famous, and The Johnny Unicorn Jam Unit. Now he’ll face his greatest challenge yet: Duck Duck Scissors.

Show Description

You introduce them to a special guest monologist—maybe it’s a celebrity, maybe it’s a scientist, maybe it’s someone weird off the street—with a story to tell. Then you turn them all loose.

The special guest will open their hearts to you with stories, memories, and feelings inspired by your suggestions. The improvisers will then turn it into high energy, rapid-fire improvised sketches right before your very eyes!

This month’s special guest is the energetic tour de force, Hattie Hellkat! You can catch her with The Libertinis and Seattle Burlesque/Fringe Theater events.
