In January 2006, accomplished writers and stand-up comics Paul Bae and Charles Demers (of Seven Oaks) joined up to write and perform scathing, engaging sketch comedy with a cerebral twist that has had audiences on both sides of the border in stitches, and has the Georgia Straight's comedy critic lauding their "extremely clever writing and excellent stage presence [...] packed with laugh-out-loud jokes."
