"What is Picture This!?"
PICTURE THIS! is a new show from Sam Varela, Brandie Posey & Grif Kimmins: two girls & an animator who want to push the boundaries of what a comedy show can be. Picture This! is a live comedy show with stand-ups performing while they are drawn live by some of the best animators, cartoonists, and other artists in Hollywood, CA NYC and Portland. With the recent addition of our international producer, Alex Rock, Picture This! has also debuted in Toronto, New Zealand and Australia! The comedians don’t know what the animators are drawing and the animators don’t know how the comedians will react. It may be weird. It may different. But it will be a unique comedy experience every time!
[Grassroots and infectiously cult, TCGS has becoming a raging redwood from a hapless sapling. It’s won kudos from all over, has created an alarmingly loyal fan base, and is being courted by Comedy Central. It’s impossible to predict what’s going to happen at the Eureka Theater on February 8th but i know San Francisco will be game to get weird.]
