You're invited to the Winterfest Formal: A Fairy Princess Ball! As the most popular sophomores and co-chairs of the Winterfest Formal, Sam and Becky know that in this day and age of "feminism", Princesses aren't *cool*. But, maybe we can all put aside our "differences" for one G-D night and pretend that we live in a magical fairy land where only good things happen and the only real problems are not knowing which dress goes with which glass ceiling- we mean slipper!!!
Featuring fellow prince/princesses:
Ziwe Fumudoh (Baited, The Rundown)
Chrissy Shackelford (Diane Shangri-La Presents, Characters Welcome)
Matt Little (Funny or Die, Lasers in the Jungle)
Richie Moriarty (The Tick, Simply Unemployable)
Anna Suzuki (She's Gotta Have It, AzN PoP)
SLUCK (Matt Rogers & Bowen Yang)
**A television holiday special, live on stage**
During the biggest holiday storm of the year, Thank You, Robot and their friends find themselves trapped inside St. Marks Lodge. Come together as they celebrate comedy, improv, the holidays, and drinking during all three.

Imagine if the song "The Monster Mash" came to life. That's what this show is! It is the perfect freaky Halloween celebration that you won't want to miss!
All audience members are encouraged to come dressed in costume. This is a party for monsters after all! There will also be a costume contest with some great prizes in store! And every audience member is going to get a Halloween goodie bag on their way out!
(I'll be performing as Crackula, a Dracula who was bitten by a crackhead.)
Science meets comedy as Thank You, Robot hosts experts of various academic pursuits as they deliver presentations that serve as inspiration for an improv show made up on the spot, never seen before, never seen again!
