The Groundlings: The Crazy Uncle Joe Show (SOLD OUT)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Come and see one of LA's longest running long-form improvisation shows without leaving the foggy comfort of the Bay Area! Watch as The Groundlings players and guests begin with three suggestions from the crowd, and then proceed to weave the stories together, traveling back and forth through time, playing many different characters in many different situations. It's a particle accelerator of inspired comedic silliness. The L.A. Times calls them "A seven person pyrotechnic display of cleverness." For this SF Sketchfest edition, they welcome special guest improviser Minnie Driver! $25
This show is SOLD OUT. Tickets may be available at the door night-of.
