“Maybe you should try … pants.”
“$240 worth of pudding.”
If any of these phrases ring a bell, then you were probably a fan of MTV’s sketch-comedy show The State. I get psyched about any sort of State-related news, and this time it’s pretty exciting: The entire gang will reunite for a performance at the San Francisco Sketchfest Jan. 24.
The shows will be the first time all 11 members of the group have been onstage together in more than 10 years. Among them: Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, David Wain, Kerri Kenney-Silver, Ken Marino and Robert Ben Garant. Tickets are on sale now, and they’ll be performing all-new material.
Sketchfest includes several other State-related events, like a Stella show, a State conversation/tribute hosted by Janeane Garofalo and a special screening of Wet Hot American Summer. The festival lineup also includes Adult Swim’s Tim and Eric, “A Salute to Bud Cort with Harold and Maude,” Zach Galifianakis, “The Hills: A Staged Reading” and tons more.
If you go, take photos and send us a detailed report!
