Killing My Lobster’s Quinceañera Prom
When: September 14, 8 to 11:55 p.m.
What: There’s nothing sketchy about this comedy gang who deliver some of the best, wiggle-in-your-seat-uncomfortable moments during their crack-up live performances. We expect this “prom” fundraiser to benefit the troupe to be no different. So don your best cotton-candy-colored dress, rhinestones, and dark lip-liner, pull that hair up in some sweet tendrils, and go awkwardly stand up against the wall until someone asks you to dance.
Where: Verdi Club, 2424 Mariposa St (between Potrero Avenue and Hampshire Street), San Francisco; 415-861-9199.
KML brings you an info-tainment video to answer all of your Quinceañera queries!
Quinceañera (lit. meaning One (f.) who is fifteen), sometimes called Fiesta de Quince Años, Fiesta de Quinceañera, Quince Años or simply Quince, is the celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday.
Well, KML is one lucky lady because she’s 15 years old this year and we’re having a PARTY!
September 14th, 2012
8pm – 12am
Event to feature:
ACT’s phenomenal run of Beckett’s ENDGAME has more than just the legendary Bill Irwin to brag about. Now it has us!
Join us following the 8 p.m. performance on Thursday, May 24, as Killing My Lobster presents a hilarious spin on the themes and characters of some of Beckett’s most famous works, from Endgame and Play to Waiting for Godot.
The performance will begin 15 minutes after the final curtain (approximately 10:15 p.m.). Possible sketches include “Hunger End Games,” “Cooking with Clov,” and a speed-dating sketch featuring Beckett characters.
Admission is free, and we’ll be on ACT’s mainstage! There might even be a special guest appearance by… Tony Award Winning Actor Bill Irwin.
Killing My Lobster leaves no family stone unturned as they wrap their claws around Prop 8, public nursing, sibling rivalry, and negligent parents! From The Brady Bunch to the Manning brothers, no family goes unscathed in this raucous slashing of the ties that bind!

And here’s some photos from the show:
“Dear Esther” is written by Esther also known as Queen of Shushan also known as Queen Jewess also known as ‘the one who saved the Jews the first time’. It is the most popular and widely syndicated column in all of Shushan known for its honesty and biblical perspective.
I’ve been drinking the wine sweetened with lead as the apothecary prescribed and I’ve been soaking in camel poop and ground figs for months, but now my skin tone is uneven, especially in my T-zone. What’s your secret? Signed, Jasmine
You won’t believe this, but your Auntie Esther was a pageant queen back in her day. I was a real hot hamantaschen. And you know, The King wasn’t the only one sniffing my babushka. They were all interested, even the eunuchs. I could have had anyone. My secret? Lots of kugel. Gives the King a little something to grab onto on those cold Shushan nights.
We think our daughter may be dating a Moor but we’re not sure how to bring it up. We have nothing against them as a people, but we are a very traditional family. Should we stone her? Agustus
Stoning? For me, it’s overkill. But what do I know? I’m just a simple jewish girl who likes to defend her people and massacre others. That’s me. I don’t judge. Even when I see what’s going on at the Feldman’s across the street. The coming and going at all hours of the night? I just keep to myself. Like I said to my fried, Myrtle, is it my business that the youngest girl is a harlot? No. I stay out of it. But just between us, I think its drugs. You don’t get that thin milking goats.
Dear Esther, my husband has left the barn door open again and all the goats have escaped. What do I do?
Dear Goat Rodeo,
Oy. My husband is forgetful too. Always with the “do you know where I left my favorite rope belt, tell me again who saved my life, what time is dinner with the Goldblatts on Thursday?” It’s a real schnickle in my guggannah. Here’s what you should do. Get yourself a nice eunuch to help out around the yurt. And have some brisket. You’re too thin.

We’re Back! Killing My Lobster Performs 2 Shows in SF Sketchfest 2012
To say we are excited about performing in SF Sketchfest 2012 would be an understatement! KML will be performing our “Best of Show 2011” show. You’ll see the best sketches and videos from 2011, plus we’ll be premiering a brand new comedy video, and dusting off a “Greatest Hit” sketch from 2006’s “KML Faces The Music”! Also, our musical accompaniment for both shows will be the wildly popular
and hilarious band, The Boneless Children Foundation.
The Huffington Post picked KML as a “Highlight” from this year’s SF Sketchfest! Read
all about it here.
On January 28th, we are honored to be the opening act for Rick Overton’s new show “Substitute Global Ambassador”. Come see us open with a 30-minute set and stay for Rick’s hilarious new show!
The show will be recorded by Sirius Radio and The
Raw Dog Comedy Channel for a later
broadcast, so let your laughter be heard!
Also check us out in San Francisco Magazine!
On February 1st, we are HEADLINING and will treat you to a full hour set from the best sketches and videos of our 2011 shows! Our “Best Of Show 2011” show includes sketches about sexy butter churning, to murder on a chessboard, to a typical dysfunctional family celebrating Arbor Day.
