FrankenMatt presents: American Imperil FrankenMatt's new sketch comedy show American Imperil follows Frank Caeti (former MADtv actor) and Matt Craig (former Saturday Night Live Writer) on a pilgrimage to look at the man in the mirror. This fast paced show combines characters, narrative and sketch elements to explore greed, hypocrisy, intolerance, apathy, and technology as perhaps what created America's worst enemy, Americans. Following the one act of sketch will perform a fully improvised second act. Find more info at www.frankenmatt.com or like the FrankenMatt fan page on Facebook. American Imperil-the only thing we have to fear, is to fear ourselves.
