Killing My Lobster

Who wants to go back to camp? Yup, neither do we. That's why this summer Killing My Lobster, San Francisco's premier sketch comedy group, is bringing camp to you. Pack your bug spray, sleeping bag, and emergency inhaler because we're touring the Bay Area with a bus load of sketch comedy that smells of must, sun block, and severe bleach. We'll sing Kumbaya, so you don't have to.
