Zoology Club (ATX)
Zoology Club is the code name of a US government research operation experimenting in the behavioral engineering of humans. In 2013, humorous videos of Zoology Club, cryptonym ZKUltra, began surfacing shortly, followed by live sketch and improv experimentations. The two program engineers, Kelsey Rodgers and Stephanie Pace, continue to practice comedy in the United States with impunity.
2014 was the magical beginning for Story, which puts together shows with emphasis on character, connections and theme. It’s members come from a wide variety of backgrounds including improvisation, writing, filmmaking and acting. It’s members are Jim Brite, Matthew Carmichael, Dustan Costine and Helen Krieger and is based in New Orleans.
Kid Brother (ATX)
Kid Brother is a collective of likeminded writers who derive their humor from their own neuroses, likes, dislikes and personal views of the world. Their multifaceted performances are a mix of live and video sketch that explore a range of fantastic and mundane premises. Kid Brother is written and performed by: Caitlin McNally, Robert Segovia, Christopher Levi, Steph Chilldress and Jay Rios; fearlessly directed by the hilariously talented Megan Simon.
