Smat! at Sketch Comedy Month

It’s your least favorite sketch comedy duo: Smat!

If you loved Sarah McKinley and Matt Olson in their sketch comedy groups Part Plantand Drop the Root Beer and Run, you probably still won’t like them as Smat! But they don’t care, they’re putting on this show for you (or in spite of you) anyway! What are you gonna do to stop them? What could you possibly do, huh? You’re weak. You’re powerless. You’re part of the problem. You’re Smat!, too!

Get your tickets now before someone else buys them all so nobody can see the show: http://bit.ly/SMATsm2016

Smat has graciously agreed to share their Sketch Comedy Month! time slot against their will with the brilliant Death and Taxes, starring Chris Allen and Graham Downing.

Getting Naked with Friends

Getting Naked with Friends is a sketch group that wears clothes! It’s a rare thing these days, but we do it with pride. In our show, you’ll see sketches that make you laugh, and also other sketches that make you laugh too. The main thing to know? We write funny sketches that cover topics all over the board. Right now we’ve got some in the can about drugs, some about sex, and even some about rock and roll/political dissidence. We don’t know what you’ll see on the 12th yet, but we do know this: If the New York Times reviewed us, they’d say That show was funny AND educational for all ages assuming the kids don’t mind adult language and content.
