The Business keeps going strong, with Sean, Chris, Bucky, and interim Businessman Chris Thayer bringing the comedy thunder, and special guest Jesse Fernandez bringing his new short film. I don’t know the title of the new film, but I’m assuming it has to do with high school wrestling, living in Vacaville, and/or animation. Regardless, it qualifies as a Thing He Made.
Jesse’s films have won countless awards over the years, much as The Business has won countless hearts of audience members over the years. We’ll continue to win - and break - hearts this Wednesday. 8 PM, five bucks, tacos are across the street.
