our 20th anniversary season
KILLING MY LOBSTER: UNDER PRESSURE, at SF Sketchfest
Jan 18th & 25th at PianoFight, 144 Taylor St. San Francisco
KML is kicking off its 20th year by throwing caution and sense to the wind with Killing My Lobster: Under Pressure, creating a show in the same amount of time SNL takes to put together an episode! What can a bunch of comedians barely making rent in the Bay Area come up with in one week on no sleep and 12 gallons of iced coffee? Will they all get fired from their day jobs? Will they burst into tears in the middle of the show? FIND OUT.
March 2nd - 18th at PianoFight, 144 Taylor St. San Francisco
It’s The Dudes vs. The Dudettes at KML in March! For the third year in a row, we’ve split up into two teams of writers and actors to battle it out for your voting pleasure. Each team will take on a series of categories in sketch form - and you pick the winner! However you identify, you’ll identify this show as a hilarious heap of steaming hot humor. Pick your battles - PICK SEX BATTLE.

For the past 4 years, KML has been teaming up with 826 Valencia to teach the youth of America the fundamentals of sketch comedy writing. Now we're taking their ingenious sketches and putting on a show with professional actors. You won't know what to expect, but laughter is guaranteed.

What happened in 1997? The movie Titanic sank into our hearts, Bill Clinton saw 4 more years, Dolly was cloned, Microsoft got us hard, Tyson bit off more than he could chew, AND KML WAS CREATED! It's KML's 20 Year Anniversary show, let's go back to 1997 and lift our glasses to the year Steve Jobs came back to Apple.

Who wants to go back to camp? Yup, neither do we. That's why this summer Killing My Lobster is bringing camp to you. Pack your bug spray, sleeping bag, and emergency inhaler because we're touring the Bay Area with a bus load of sketch comedy that smells of must, sun block, and severe bleach. We'll sing Kumbaya, so you don't have to.

You may be an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, but we'll accept you at KML Presents: A Bag of Dickens! Instead of ghosts you'll be haunted by the laughter of Holiday sketches that will fill your belly and your frozen heart. Pass the gravy, stuff the goose, and join us for a night of good bloody cheer. God Bless Us, (Almost) Every One!
