HUGE NEWS! The Sketchersons are teaming up with the Big City Improv Festival and presenting a brand new show with host JEFF RICHARDS (SNL, MadTV). Jeff Richards has the distinction of being the first person to ever be a cast member of both Saturday Night Live and MadTV, but he says he likes our show best.*
*We are not sure if Jeff Richards actually said this.
As always, we’ll be joined by the Splinter to our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Brave Heart Lion to our Care Bears and Care Bear Cousins, Mark Andrada on the lights and sounds, and accompanied by the best damn house band in the whole wide world, The Magic Stuff and the Hazard Pay.
WE’RE ALL GONNA LIVE FOREVER!
