About the show
Group Kid wants to play a game. With you. A game of pure horror. A game which will force you to confront what you fear most. The undead. Witches. Masked killers. That hipster at the bar. Film students. Bumping into your ex on the train.
Written and Performed by:
Group Kid. Sketch Comedy at a fifth grade reading level. Grim as hell. Silly as f**k.
“Group Kid” resorbs comedy people like the adorable, tentacled fetus monster that it is. Our collective is constantly ingesting writers and actors to spew out themed sketch shows that are dark, silly, and heart pumping.
