Somebody's in the Doghouse / STuFF
We all want things we probably shouldn't -- that new bag, a slug of Jack Daniels, Facebook fame, or the perfect f&$* holiday bazaar. With their new show, Somebody's in the Doghouse explores what happens when you get what you want, or get a terrible illness while trying.
Somebody's in the Doghouse is Leah Gotcsik (The Scene, The Made Up Musical, iO Chicago) and Marty Johnson (Improv Boston Harold Night, Improv Asylum). They write character-driven sketches that are topical, sharp, and a little screwball. Then they perform the SH*T out of them. They were Friars Club Sketch Competition Finalists in 2010 and 2011 and have also screened their sitcom pilot at the New York Television Festival, sailed the seas with The Second City, and hit sketch festivals all over the country, including Chicago Sketchfest, San Francisco Sketchfest and the Women in Comedy Festival.
STuFF FiLMs is the brainchild of a dozen or so New York City-based, comically inclined performers and writers dedicated to exploring the inane, the sardonic and the satirical that might just be called sketch comedy. They parody pop-culture as well as big themes like religion and exercise equipment and uncommon sense while achieving new heights in online and live-performance comedy. They love the old vaudeville styles of performance, so their live shows combine their version of sketch comedy, web videos and guest performances from improv groups, stand-up comics and musical guests.
