STAB!

STAB! brings together writers, stand ups and other regional gems to partake in a darkly intelligent live comedy panel show. Described as "Incisive wit that cuts to the bone." by the Sacramento News and Review, STAB's! off-beat format allows panelists 24 to 48 hours to create their own unique takes on various random prompts. Ranging from the online dating profile of The Virgin Mary to the tourism guide of Super Mario Brothers Level 1-1, STAB! is a celebration of all things everything; it's like a jazz funeral for the collective conscience.
