Don’t Watch This Show LIVE! is a collective of stand up comedians doing something different in comedy. They perform sketches, shoot comedy videos, shorts, and perform stand up and improv. DWTSL! is the only full show doing this type of production in San Francisco mostly because we are better than everyone else and more funny and beautiful and God knows we deserve more attention than we are getting and anyone who thinks otherwise is a Redcoat. #noswag
Laura was raised in Hong Kong, Thailand and Malaysia. She originally trained as an actress but later settled on working as a governess /Mary Poppins to oligarchs and sheiks in Russia and Abu Dhabi. The positive reaction to her stories and observations from her life abroad, prompted the move into comedy. She trained as a stand-up with Logan Murray (Amused Moose London) and today can be found showcasing her eccentric and original characters on the London stand-up circuit. She recently launched ‘The Elsie Bo Show’ producing sketches and short films. 2013 is a busy year for Laura with gigs planned in Edinburgh, New York and San Francisco!
TMI is a weekly sketch show that has been playing for the last 6 months to sold-out houses every Sunday night at The Second City, Hollywood. Each week, some of Second City, Hollywood’s most talented actors and writers come together to create a new show, hosted by the most famous person who condescends to work with us. Pop Culture, Politics, Sports – when a story breaks in Hollywood, we’re there with the Crazy Glue. TMI – it’s the sketch comedy equivalent of being trapped in a car with Chris Brown.
Joey Devine is from the San Francisco Bay Area. He considers himself to be an absurdist, pop culture, storyteller. Which when jammed together like that makes no sense. He is a writer/performer for Yahoo.com’s Broken News Daily a daily comedy news show that gets millions of hits a month. His credits include IFC, The SF Punch Line, The Purple Onion, Things We Made, and The Business. He chose comedy, because his one true love, The Golden State Warriors, spurned him many years ago. He is terrible at basketball.
