Aeriel and Betsaida are Kooky Pants (Sacramento) in a fast-paced, character-driven improvised story inspired by a song lyric that ends with a fully improvised song. Lady Business is Sacramento’s first and longest-running all-women improv group, which creates scenes inspired by a new theme every month.

Featuring: Jeff Sloniker and Curtis Rainsberry (Los Angeles), Stand-up from Ellis Rodriguez (Sacramento) Krista Fatka (Oakland), and Gabby Poccia. 
The Friday Show features all types of comedy, including improv, stand-up, and musical. The highlights of the show are original sketches and characters created by TFS cast members. The Friday Show could be considered a more unconventional and, at times, bizarre version of variety classics like The Carol Burnett Show. Jeff Sloniker and Curtis Rainsberry performed in the famed The Midnight Show in Los Angeles and are guest performers in TFS. 

Half character cage match, half Japanese game show, SUPER FANTASTIC CHARACTER SHOWDOWN is a one-of-a-kind live comedy experience.Featuring: Jeff Sloniker and Curtis Rainsberry (Los Angeles), Brian Crall, Jack Brown, Grant Potter, Michelle Daubner, Chris Emery, Marco Cabodi and Cheyenne Grogan.
