Every month Skyler Stone (Raising Hope, Comedy Central's CON, Waiting, For Your Consideration) puts on an amazing evening of comedy and music. Except it is not what you might think. It isn't comedians going up and then musicians going up and doing their separate acts. NO! It is all integrated. Skyler only books comedians who use music in their acts (like Zach Galifianakis or Garfunkel & Oates) and comics who love to talk about music in their acts (think Brian Posehn ranting about metal music or Chris Porter gabbing about the Black Crowes). The night is topped off with a special A-list musician that is brought onstage for a hilarious and intimate interview done by Skyler. So far musicians that have been interviewed are Josh Homme from Queens Of The Stone Age and Andy Summer from The Police. A Portion of the proceeds for every show goes to the charity of our musician's choice! This show is one of the Improv's hottest, so get your tickets now or you will miss out!
This is a benefit for Skyler Stone's daughter's elementary school. Her 5th grade teacher Mr. Martini is trying to take them on an educational trip to Catalina Island and it ain't gonna happen unless we sell this thing out! DO IT FOR THE KIDS! They are our future after all...
