Comic Relief Zero: An Everything Is Terrible! Stand-Up Special!

Gentlemen and Gentlemen, it is time to sit down and shut up! But seriously folks, sit down and shut up, because those dumb-faced, narcissistic goof-troupers at Everything is Terrible! (the world’s greatest VHS found footage destruction facility) are dishing out their very first, hour-long stand-up comedy special, Comic Relief Zero! This special is the opposite of special, jam-packed with the most cringe-inducing set-ups and bomb-dropping punchlines ripped from their magnetic tape time capsules! Today’s hottest ventriloquists, racists, prop comics, sexists, impersonators, homophobes, and talk show hosts wish this footage was still in the landfills! The streets will run blue with women wisecracks, fat people puns, and homelessness gags galore! Are you oppressed and underrepresented in society? Well then, watch out! Let’s pull back the banana peel and take a head-first descent into the brick wall of our own mind! Take my life... please! Am I right?

Everything Is Terrible! is ashamed to bring you, Comic Relief Zero: An Everything Is Terrible! Stand-Up Special! The fur-covered, glitter-smothered gang from EIT! will emcee the festivities, bringing all the costumed merriment that has made EIT! live shows (in)famous! Outrageously funny! Totally clean!

Everything is Terrible! is the internet sensation video collective responsible for some of this millennium's most intriguing viral videos. From the creepy yoga farmer to cat massage to the dinosaur who hunts pedophiles, EIT! mines thrift stores and bargain bins for old VHS tapes, rediscovering all the best - and worst - bits. Every video is original, fantastic media art - and a great look into America's hidden past. EIT!'s daily postings, feature length video compilations, and live shows have been hailed by Wired, MTV, Fox, Time, BoingBoing, Buzzfeed, WFMU, Videogum, All Things Considered, The Onion, Chicago Tribune, Paste, and Jezebel, while the CBC deemed it simply "The best site ever."

60 minutes no intermission.
