Every week we perform, rehearse with side-coaching, come up with new sketches, play actor games, re-improvise scenes and sometimes work with puppets, music and movement. Following in steps of the Zucker Bros. ('Airplane,' 'Naked Gun,' 'Kentucky Fried Movie,' etc.) we use a classic sketch writing form that has existed at least since 1959. Scripts are improvised and then written and directed as live sketch shows (every 8 wks), web content or tv/film scripts pitched to execs with contributing members receiving shared writing credit. Group is limited to 10."
