I'm In My 20s

Comedians tell stories of lessons (perhaps regrets) from the transformative decade that is your 20s. Those stories that you look back on and say “but I was in my 20s,” because that definitely justifies going to something like Santa Con (maybe more than once). Hosted by Mel Owens, featuring Devon Knight, Katie Heneghan, Jorja Hudson, Eva McEnrue and Jared Weil!

IT'S FREE!!!

Cool Shit/Weird Shit

Every month is a brand new late night conceptual comedy show in which the guests are encouraged to do things that are far from your typical stand up, sketch, or improv. Whether it's playing the Beatles "Abbey Road" all the way through and having comedians perform visual acts to each song, a show where all the material is catered to one of the host's Dad, or a show where each performer has to face their greatest fear live on stage--Cool Shit/Weird Shit has it all. Some of the stuff you see will be cool. Some of it will be weird. All of it will be Cool Shit/Weird Shit.

Teen Angst: A Character Lip Sync Battle

Ugh wasn't being a teenager just the worst? Driving around in a car (your parents bought you) listening to Simple Plan thinking how of things that just sucked while wearing a Volcom hoodie?

Well time to let all that anger out, in a Lip Sync battle of teen angst, whoever hates their dad the most will win. Performers will compete in a lip sync battle to classics that fueled  your angst, Simple Plan, Good Charlotte, Taking Back Sunday, Blink 182 -- basically summer at the Warped Tour.

The Hubbies Slam Dunk Competition

To pay homage to the NBA's annual competition of athletic beauty and complete nonsense, the Hubbies are hosting our own Slam Dunk Competition. If you don't know what that is, the NBA picks players to jam balls into a hoop in the most insane ways they can think of. Here's a good example where Blake Griffin brought in a choir to sing "I believe I can fly" and then jumped over a car: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41EFwuBqEUA

The Mailroom Presents

It's December, and you know what that means - it's time for every blog, magazine, TV show (do we still have those?), and compulsive Facebook-status-updater to look back at 2015 and take stock of the year that was. "Top Ten" and "Best of…" lists multiply like Taylor Swift's #squad, counting down everything from the best podcasts of the year to 2015's most-pinned pictures of cakes in mason jars. Do you really need another way to look back at the year? Yes, you do! 

Join The MAILROOM as we offer up our recap of 2015 in an all-new, all-original sketch show.
