My pals Cole Stratton and Janet Varney (two of the producers of SF Sketchfest) have put together a real A-list new show here in LA, and I thought I'd let folks know about. Even with great folks like this performing, it can be tough to get folks out to a new show, and I know TSOYA fans are always looking for something great to check out.
Here's what Cole and Janet say:
"Theme Park is a comedy variety show produced by two co-founders and co-directors of SF Sketchfest, San Francisco's nationally-renowned comedy festival. Each Theme Park show is designed around a particular concept. In addition to sketch, music, stand-up, and film, the show will also include trivia and prizes related to each month's theme. The show's format is intended to encourage comedians to generate new material with a specific goal in mind, but if a performer has a pre-existing bit that fits the bill, they're welcome to use it."
The show's Saturday night at 9:30 at the Westside Eclectic in Santa Monica, and tickets are eight bucks.
The lineup features TSOYA vets Jimmy Pardo, Hard N Phirm and Diani & Devine, as well as Scott Adsit from "30 Rock" and others. Not to be missed.
