The Bentzen Ball Comedy Festival: Off Book

10/26/2018 at 6:00 PM

Hosts Zach Reino and Jessica McKenna are also  known as the musical sketch duo The Zach and The Jess. They have written musical sketches for Party Over Here, Buzzfeed, FunnyOrDie, Nickelodeon, and they created and starred in Serious Music, a digital series for ABC. Off Book: The Improvised Musical Podcast on Earwolf has been praised by various online publications including Indie Wire, USA Today, Parade, AV Club, and Splitsider. The podcast has also performed live at Comedy Central’s Clusterfest and SF Sketchfest. Between their podcast and UCB performances, Reino and McKenna sometimes improvise four musicals a week. It’s almost like it’s no big deal to write a musical. Boom! Rodgers and Hammerstein, ya been roasted!

This program contains mature themes and strong language. It will not be streamed live or archived.

Free general admission tickets will be distributed in the States Gallery starting at approximately 5:00 p.m., up to two tickets per person.

Presented in partnership with the BYT Benzen Ball.

This show will not be broadcast
