Spoof Night! w/ Karate Kid at Manship Theatre
The live movie-ridiculing continues with a lesson in Karate, the ancient art of 80's filmmaking. In this one the guys from Family Dinner Comedy Troupe learn that Karate comes from the heart of New Jersey, and when practiced correctly, can land you some serious California Beach Babes. They will also try their hardest to avoid any of the tired, old, crusty jokes about "waxing on and waxing off", but they can't make promises with a live show.
