Slow Children Crossing

(Sketch) Los Angeles

Slow Children Crossing is armed with today's landscape of intoxicated celebrities, vulnerable regimes, and reality show madness.

"Robotic Chocolate", their newest show, sets the comedic roller coaster in motion with a healthy dose of life. Mixing multi-media with live sketches the group creates a party-like atmosphere as they lampoon everyone from Qaddafi to the President.

Consisting of two men, three women, and an assortment of guest players, they bring a new voice to the sketch world with their slightly crooked perspective.

Picture this: naked animals, midgets, dancing nuns, parties at Charlie Sheen's house-- scratch that. Just picture a party at Charlie Sheen's house and that covers it all!

These hip comedians go for broke in this 90 minute set. They bet the world with the roll of the dice and are sure to come up.........need I say it?........NO, but it feels so good, I can't resist..............WINNING!

Slow Children Crossing is Los Angeles' hottest, exciting, new sketch comedy troupe.

Composed of four women and two men, this band of merry people is a mélange of topical, whimsical, high brow, low brow, political, and spoof humor that will excite all of your senses. Infused with such influences as Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor, and Benny Hill it is easy to see why they are often described as "Kids in the Hall" meets "In Living Color".

Like graffiti artists, they have left a colorful impression in other cities such as New York, Austin, Seattle, Boston,
and will not stop until they have wrecked shop all over the world.

Seemingly born from comic jets, their high energy show will leave your head spinning, your sides splitting, and your mind wondering, "'hmmm Slow Children Crossing? Aren't we all?"

Cast:Jacob Reed, Justin Michael

Science and religion are like Sid and Nancy: two freakishly interesting creatures who won't stop stabbing each other until both are dead. Nerdvana's "Nanotheology" is a sketch comedy tour through both halves of the human brain: the one useless enough to invent the USB Powered Coffee Cup Warmer and the one gullible enough to buy it.

Nerdvana has performed their geektacular brand of improvised and sketch comedy around the country since 2006. They've improvised weekly at IO West's Sunday Social for the past 3 years and hosted Sketch Devils, Second City LA's bi-weekly sketch comedy meltdown for the past year.

Together, they've been seen at Chicago Sketchfest, Austin's Out of Bounds Comedy Festival, the Improlympia Festival and writing for Hulu's "Twentysixmiles". Apart they've been seen/heard in The Blind Side, Cougar Town, the front page of the LA Times and LA's Moth Grand Slam.
