Wendigo at San Francisco Sketch Fest with the Key and Peele Writers

  • Eureka Theater

"The Peabody award winning and Emmy nominated writers from Comedy Central's hit series give you a glimpse into their writers room. K&P is deeply rooted in improvisation from the top down. From Jordan and Keegan's vast improv experience to the various writers with backgrounds at Second City, IO and The Upright Citizen Brigade Theater. The pitch meetings become more performance than "meeting" and more hail mary pass than "pitch." It's a unique look inside the creative minds behind Key and Peele. It's also an kick ass improv show. "

Wendigo is the opening act for this show! DAAANG

Tickets: $20
