Episode 279 - Two-Handed Seesaw: LIVE from SF Sketchfest

Recommended Posts

Ian Roberts and Jessica McKenna join Matt Besser for a live episode straight from the SF Sketchfest! They take audience suggestions which inspire scenes about hashing out the specifics of butterfly travel, hiding baldness through haircut enthusiasm, and a jockstrap salesman competing with a lemonade stand. Plus, Melania Trump tries to make the internet smaller, and a dying man has very specific musical requests for his caretaker.

At the risk of stating the obvious, Jessica McKenna is fantastic.


The "Now all I can think about is mini-bikes" turn/call-back was so perfect.

That guy on the Oscars pre-show saying "Hidden Fences" was 100% the pink elephant/white bear thing.
