The Chris Gethard Show Presents: Chris Gethard versus Vacation Jason in a Literal Fight to the Death!
The Chris Gethard Show Presents: Chris Gethard versus Vacation Jason in a Literal Fight to the Death!

"The Chris Gethard Show" is a strange late night cable talk show that bends the borders of what a talk show is even allowed to be. Fans of TCGS are rabid, passionate devotees to this public access born televised mayhem.

Fans of TCGS will also tell you that the eponymous host of the show has a mortal enemy – Vacation Jason, the island hopping, fruit loving madman who is always on vacation and thwarts Chris at every turn possible. Much to Chris’s consternation, Vacation Jason is a crowd favorite amongst the TCGS dedicated. His popularity rivals that of the host himself – some might say it even exceeds it.

After many, many years of these two non-titans battling publicly on the cable airwaves, things are finally set to come to a head on Friday, January 8th at 10 PM at the Brava Theater. Geth and Jason will face each other in a series of challenges with the assistance of you, the audience. Murf will be on hand to referee the proceedings and insure that they get out of control. The Human Fish will oversee everything with his watchful amphibious eyes. And the LLC will rock out while it all happens.

And at the end, one of these men will have won the majority of the challenges. And both have agreed that at that point, the other will be exterminated on stage. It will be like Hamilton versus Burr, except comedy serves as the duel and we are 85% certain no one will ever write a Broadway musical about the events that occur on this evening.

We sincerely hope to see you there! $28 All Ages

BOAT / Charles, hosted by Nick Sahoyah
Boat is a sketch comedy trio born in Brooklyn and currently wasting away in Los Angeles. For the past five years they've brought their sharp, satirical, and often surreal brand of sketch comedy to venues throughout New York City, colleges, and festivals across the United States. Boat has been an official selection at Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, the Chicago Sketchfest, the Toronto Sketchfest, the New York City Sketch Festival, the San Francisco Sketchfest, and the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival. Their shows "Boat: Comedic Sketches" and "Boat: Even More Another Comedic Sketches" enjoyed lengthy runs at the Citizens Brigade Theater in New York City. "Boat: Kaleidoscopic Misanthropic Orthopedic Sketch Assortment" is currently running at UCB-LA. Boat is Amos Vernon, Mike Lane, and Nunzio Randazzo.

Seattle comedy duo Charles will take you down a wormhole of interwoven worlds. You might see two Glockenspiel clockmen debate the existence of freewill, or a pair of 19th century gentlemen play Jenga by mail. The show is intelligent without sacrificing accessibility, as Charles seamlessly combines highbrow and lowbrow sensibilities into a brand of humor they call unibrow. Charles has performed throughout the US and Canada, including the SF Seattle, Chicago, and Toronto Sketchfests; The Moontower Comedy Festival, and Hell Yes Fest.
