The New Year is off and running. The last two Funny Peculiar shows have totally sold out, standing room only.
We're working on our next scetch show. Rehearsals are going well and it's turning out to be quite a different show from anything else we've done. I'm liking it a---lot. Lots of shorter skits in this one.

"The group brings its warped humor to San Francisco for two nights with skits like "Satan's Receptionist," in which a self-pitying nobody seeks advice from a hellish secretary, as well as a hilarious think piece that skewers a vegan public service announcement."
Jane Tunks, SF Weekly 4/13/2005

"A mix of old time radio style and irreverent (but surprisingly non-profane) humor, the crew brings to mind some of the funnier bits of Monty Python and vintage Saturday Night Live. These guys could easily be the next SCTV."
Robert Berry,

"'Yuppie Birth Scene,' got laughs in the right places; and the timing was perfect throughout the 'Team Urinals' sketch, in which three men bond over a shared affliction: shy-bladder syndrome."
