Two Months In (March 2017)

2016 nearly killed us (and did kill David Bowie, Prince and Carrie Fisher). What happens two months into the new administrations when a Tweeter-in-Chief has taken office, the NC General Assembly has the gloves off and we have a Beauty and the Beast without Angela Lansbury? These sketch comedians have a few ideas. Two Months In, takes stock of the moment and gives you a reason to laugh again. Expect appearances from: the NC General Assembly, your family, and some Ghostbusters caught between their jobs and their ethics. It’s the best and worst of a political season that will only end when the blessed apocalypse claims us all.
