about the show:
Business Computer Presents: Sometimes I Feel the World Is Ruled By Devils… is interested in the elasticity of what sketch is, determined to break your comedy bones and reset them in a way that will assault your expectations and behavior towards sketch comedy. Through the use of both stage and video sketches, Business Computer offers a mash up of comedic proportions combining elements from “Tim and Eric”, “Human Giant” and “Kids in the Hall”, gingerly placing them all in a comedy blender with the weirdest of British humor like “Big Train” and “Jam”, and then setting it all to explode. With lasers.
The ultimate battle of good versus evil rages on, and through this experience you’ll see material that will bounce from the surrealist and absurd, to those reveling in wordplay and entendre, while some will just have fun wallowing in crassness or celebrating nostalgia. One of the few shows where you can see the earnest disintegration of a marriage while a run-of-the-mill séance is happening all while an evil scientist creates clones from America’s greatest situation comedy.
Business Computer is composed of Evan Brandon, Brian Fiddyment, Christopher Garner, Daniel Kurland, Madeline Manning, Edy Modica, and Dan Ramos.
