"When you go into the lion's den, you don't tippy-toe in. You carry a spear, you go in screaming like a banshee and say, 'Where's the son of a bitch?' If you go in any other way, you're going to lose." Brian Billick - Head Coach, Baltimore Ravens

That's how we feel you should approach a Champagne show. A sketch comedy duo direct from Seattle! One performance only!

Oh, and also, Flaming Box of Stuff is coming back into town. Forgot to mention that:

Flaming Box of Stuff returns to NYC with “It’s the Water”: a show about beer, anger, remorse, and unemployment in the 1970’s. Yeah, it’s a comedy.

After appearing before packed houses at the Chicago, Portland and New York SketchFests, Flaming Box is returning to the Big Apple for a three-night engagement at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. The Seattle-based ensemble will once again showcase their unique character- and plot-driven approach to sketch and their penchant for finding humor in all subjects no matter how dark or bizarre.
