They are brash, passionate, more than willing to mock societal conventions, and undoubtedly funny. If you can’t stand corny jokes, over-the-top performances from comedians with little to say, and generally bland comedy, then this show was created for you! If you appreciate originality, rebelliousness, and envelope-pushing comedy, then this show was created for you! Be a part of the revolution in stand-up.
