SHENANIGAN’S PIE • NORFLEET, LAWLOR & GRAY
SHENANIGAN’S PIE has been rocking the Los Angeles area weekly for the past 2 years. So have earthquakes. But earthquakes aren’t nearly as fun, unless you were watching Shenanigan’s Pie during an earthquake (which has happened!). They’re shows register an 8.5 on the Richter scale of laughs. Witness one of the most energetic improv shows this side of the San Andreas Fault! We’re all gonna die! Shenanigans Pie!.
Through sharing the gift of improv, San Francisco’s NORFLEET, LAWLOR & GRAY explore the niceness that nurturing creativity can achieve when hopes and dreams are set free like glittering doves of validated specialness

SF Comedy College’s weekly show, UPPER CUT, is the official late night improv jam/after party of the San Francisco Improv Festival!
Remember that scene in Fight Club where a dude picks a fight with a priest by spraying him with a water hose? And the priest fights back? And likes it? Well, UPPER CUT is the improv comedy show equivalent of that scene. Minus the hose. And the fighting. And the priest collar. Each Friday nigh…t, UPPER CUT delivers a knockout combination of the Bay Area’s funniest improv troupes, special guests, and pound for pound, the best improv open mike on earth, Sparmageddon! Hosted by Sammy Wegent.
