Picture This! Live from Home!
Add to Calendar
PICTURE THIS! is a new show from Brandie Posey & Sam Varela: two girls who want to push the boundaries of what a comedy show can be. Picture This! is a live comedy show with stand-ups, voice actors and more performing while they are drawn live by some of the best animators, cartoonists, and other artists in the biz! The comedians don’t know what the animators are drawing and the animators don’t know how the comedians will react.
It may be weird.
It may different.
But it will be FUNNY!
Comedians Aparna Nancherla, Naomi Ekperigin, Myq Kaplan & Ian Fidance
Animators Pendelton Ward, Mike Mayfield, Victoria Montes, Sapphire Sandalo & Mike Hollingsworth
Hosted by Brandie Posey
