Make It Up Media
Make It Up Media has been creating deliciously dumb sketch comedy every week for a year now. Join the Make It Up Crew in a show comprised of some of their favorite sketches in a night of comedic chaos. 

Separate Beds
Separate Beds is the “house” sketch team of the Laugh Index Theatre in DC, despite there being no house to perform in this pandemic year — their Beds have truly been Separate! But it’s made them bigger, stronger, faster, fatter, funnier, dumber, smarter, erererrrrrrrrrr… Enjoy some of their nerdiest filmed sketches from the current season, virtually produced by members scattered across DC, NYC, Chicago, and even a creepy remote cabin in Vermont.
