This Month’s Family Friendly Show to Include Comedy

On Saturday, March 10th, the Magic Meathands and Jump Start Comedy Improv reunite at the Mary Pickford Studio for a Family Friendly Show with fully improvised comedy. Yes, comedy! This is a new feature we’re adding just for YOU! Previous shows of funeral dirges will be postponed until further notice.

The Magic Meathands, in case you didn’t know, is us! We’re a comedy troupe that performs a mixture of short form games and longer scenarios, all completely made up on the spot based on your suggestions and participation. The Magic Meathands are based in West LA and perform in and around Los Angeles County. Our friends Jump Start, based in the South Bay of Los Angeles, also do short form games, along with some scene work.

Every month we put together a show rated Network Television, which means that you can bring people of all ages. The show is priced at $3 for kids 12 and under, and $7 for those over 12.

Who: You! And us!
What: A night of laughter for everyone
Where: Mary Pickford Studio, 8885 Venice Blvd., Ste 103, Los Angeles, 90034
When: 8 PM on Saturday, March 10
Why: To laugh
How: Pay $7 (or $3 for 12 and under) at the door
RSVP on Facebook


One of our regular openers for our shows is a game called Objection. It’s also called Cranky Lawyers (cue: grumbling lawyers on-stage). It is perhaps not the most accurate representation of the US legal system, but we’re not that far off.

Since this show was rated Late Night, we somehow got from grilled cheese sandwiches to internet porn. Go figure!

Speaking of which, check out our new Cast page to get to know us better!

We’ve also updated our Shows page to a handy-dandy Google calendar. We have a community outreach show for a middle school, and then we’ve got two public performances at the Mary Pickford Studio: our Family Friendly Show on Saturday, March 10, and our Tag Team Comedy Show with special guests The Callbacks (referenced in the video above) on Saturday, March 17. Both shows start at 8 PM with $7 tickets ($3 for 12 and under at the Family Friendly Show).

This Saturday’s Tag Team Comedy Show with In Rare Form

Our monthly Tag Team Comedy Show features us pairing with a different improv comedy act. This time, we’re hitting the stage of the Mary Pickford Studio with In Rare Form. Like us, they have been performing at M.i.’s Westside Comedy Theater recently, as well as venues in Burbank, Hollywood and beyond.

The show starts at 8 PM. Tickets are $7. Don’t miss it! RSVP on Facebook.

This Saturday: Family Friendly Improv Comedy with Jump Start

Jump Start (l-r): Steve Lurie, Chris Moore, Kendra Nicholson, Craig Woods, Julie Martin

The Jump Start comedy ensemble from the South Bay of Los Angeles is a fun group of improvisers that joins us monthly for a family friendly show at the Mary Pickford Studio. We’re doing it again this Saturday night at 8 PM. Tickets are only $7 ($3 for children 12 and under).

They’ve been our partners for this show for a couple of years now, and it’s always amazing to watch another group in action. We’ve gotten to see new members join and grow, and the group as a whole get stronger and stronger. I hear tell there’s another Jump Start/Magic Meathands show in the works that will be in their neck of the woods. Details to come!

But in the meantime, get yourself ready for a fun time with our two groups at the Mary Pickford Studio this Saturday night. It’s probably our most popular show. We keep things network TV clean, so you can bring the kids. And we keep things fresh enough for adults.
