STAB!’s off-beat format allows panelists 24 to 48 hours to create their own unique takes on various random writing prompts, bringing together writers, stand up comics and other humans to partake in a darkly intelligent, live, comedy panel show.
“What unravels is an absurd, dark, and completely hilarious comedy show that combines the best elements of stand-up, sketch, and improv.” - Huffington Post
THANK YOU STAB! FANS for helping us celebrate 5 years in podcast production! It's amazing to look back and realize how far we've come from our humble beginnings at the Sacramento Comedy Spot, to regular appearances in San Francisco and invitations to comedy festivals all across California.
We couldn't have done it without your support. During the times when it seemed like we didn't have the means to continue, you truly kept us inspired to constantly revise, reinvent and push the show forward. STAB! would like to keep unraveling this beautiful mess for your ears AND your eyes. If your eyes have been jealous of your ears while they listen to STAB! this is their chance to do something about it!
STAB! will be filming a TV pilot on April 28th at Blacktop Comedy in Rocklin, CA. We're in the process of designing and building the set. We've booked an elite list of STAB! all-stars to perform, and hired the best crew we could find. They are worth so much more than our current budget allows us to offer them, but because they believe in the show so much, they are willing to donate their incredible talents and time.
So we're turning to you, our loyal, loving, mostly human audience to help us show them how grateful we are for their contribution to the future of the show. Our STAB! staff and creators will not be taking any cut of the funds raised for pilot episode filming. All funds will be going directly to production costs and making sure our crew is compensated as well as possible.
We estimate it will take $2,600 to raise STAB! to the next level of production value. We can't do it without your help. We value the unwavering support you've given us over the last 5 years and we want to express our gratitude by making this pilot the absolute best it can be!
Make your eyes happy. Make STAB! happy. Make the world happy. Win-win-win.
