PICTURE THIS! is a new show from BRANDIE POSEY & SAM VARELA: two girls who want to push the boundaries of what a comedy show can be.

Get in the holiday spirit this SAT. DEC. 13th at HORRIBLE MOVIE NIGHT!!!

Your hosts for the evening, JOHN MATHOT (Disney’s Phineas & Ferb) and SUSAN WRIGHT (The Because Show podcast) will present a bizarre holiday chestnut, 1971’s “THE CHRISTMAS MARTIAN”! A badly-dubbed wonder, the film concerns a snowbound French-Canadian town visited by an oddball Martian. He makes friends with two kids, and frightens the rest of the town, who then want to destroy him. Can the kids protect their new alien friend?

Come all ye faithful bad movie fans! We’ll have comedy from TONY SAM & RICKY CARMONA, PRIZES and FREE POPCORN!


Jingle all the way to the theater, and join us for the show!

Seems Legit

Seems Legit is a truly outrageous storytelling show. Most performers will be telling seemingly true tales, but 1 of them will be lying to you.

You like stories, but you like being right even more, don’t you? Join us and find out if you can really tell if someone is faking it.

With stories from…

Brendon Small
Dave Ross
H. Alan Scott
Andre Gower
Anna Seregina
and MORE!

Hosted by Ed Salazar and Kristen Studard
