Thursday, October 13th at 8pm- Two Thumbs Way Down
This show is one of our favorites, as it involves two of our favorite things: bad movies and great comedians. These two great tastes come together as Pete Holmes, Kumail Nanjiani, Rory Scovel, and creator Eli Olsberg each bring a bad movie, and after watching each trailer, the audience votes on which movie to watch. Then settle in and enjoy the hilarity of comedians completely eviscerating the schlockiest movies out there. Since Halloween is just around the corner, this month we’ll be watching the worst horror movies we can find!
