four shows that will make you feel better about the world.

Have fear, the World's Worst Babysitter is here! And she’s ready to eat all the icecream, make too much noise and never go to bed! .

Radio Variety Hour
with Sam Marzden and Bert Goldsmith
Radio Variety Hour is an hour-long comedy theatre show unlike anything you've seen (or heard) since about 1950... part loving parody and part improvised chaos. With the trio playing all characters, performing sound effects live on stage with a variety of household objects, singing old-time ads and often laughing more than the crowd, Radio Variety Hour is a comedy with something for everyone.
"The three comedians effortlessly create three distinct worlds over the course of the hour. Using a stunning array of live foley, unbelievable vocal skills and off-the-wall imagination it is a production quite unlike any other."
with Chelsea Hughes and Megan McKay
