Sketch Sunday: “Pill Cosby” by Aaron Urist x Sylvan Productions 

Trailer: “No, You’re Drunk”: San Francisco’s Newest, and Most Inebriated Game Show!

There’s no better time than drinking and laughing and winning. And there’s no better hosts than Justin Gomes (whom I’ve seen I’ve seen bomb down San Francisco on a long board, completely bombed out), and Andrew Moore (whom I’ve found sleeping on the SylvanHouse bathroom floor). No, You’re Drunk is a drinking game show that pits the Bay’s best boozer comedians versus a studio audience, every fourth Friday at Pianofight in the theater district of San Francisco.

Essentially, this is one big party, from a group known for partying, as an alternative to all the improv, sketch and stand-up shows, that refuse to be more like a party. If you’re like, I like to party, with people who know how to party, and love to encourage people to party, tell all your party people, or, if you will, your party party, to come party! 

P.S. Look at how party this video is! All the stock footage and kitsch. It’s like they had fun making it.
