We've launched our brand new podcast: Prime Time Crime Time! Where we break down the best crime shows of the 70s and 80s and discuss how completely insane some of the characters, casual racism, fashion, and stories were. Listen now by clicking here!
We've done a lot of those. You can see most of them here from our sketch comedy group Funny But Mean which were included in the narratives of the live shows. In 2001 we produced Auditioning for Fellini and Citizen X a short created literally in the last century.
Strange Prescription started as a theater production company in 1999 with production of The American Gallery which went on to appear in the Edinburgh Festival. Since then the company created Funny But Mean, a sketch comedy group which has produced over 20 original shows that have premeired in New York and San Francisco, and produced several original new plays which have been independently produced and as part of play competitions.
You Deserve Justice!
Does your roommate refuse to clean the bathroom? Did your coworker steal your lunch? Are your friends talking shit about you on the group text? Does your best friend hate your dog? Does your partner always forget to empty the dishwasher? YOU DESERVE JUSTICE!
Forget calling them out on Twitter, now you have the opportunity to have your most petty arguments, conflicts, and disagreements tried in the court of public opinion, IRL… it's time to take them to court - The Petty Court!
We are looking for people to submit their petty squabbles to us so we can select the most ridiculous, frivolous, inessential indignations and re-enact them in a live show in San Francisco where our judge - and the audience - will determine the outcome!
Each show, the winner of the court case will receive a prize and a life of glory.
We know life can be stranger than fiction, so the only requirement is that your tale of petty drama is 100% true.
