You can sign up for the raffle by liking jericho! and The Marsh Jam on Twitter and Facebook. Each like gets you one entry. Click the Giveaway link above to enter! We’ll see you at the show!

It’s about time we collectively gush over Natasha Muse. Last week at High Dudgeon, we watched Vampire’s Kiss, a literal bat-shit movie starring Nicolas Cage. Every. Single. Word. From. Natasha. Absolutely. Killed. Me. Beyond funny. I’m not saying anything that a respectable comedy fan in the Bay Area doesn’t know. Natasha has either killed it, is killing it, or will kill it across sketch, improv, game shows, stand-up, and who knows what else what, until some metaphor involving a long time occurs. I’m not only imploring you to go find her out in the field; I’m saying, when the opportunity presents itself, watch a movie with her because she’s mind-blowingly quick witted.
