Show Overview Video

Show Synopsis
Through a series of comedic and educational sketches featuring improvisation, audience volunteers and wacky, random dialogue, the audience learns about money and how we use it, while laughing and joining in the fun. A local teen gets a job at a pet store and learns about taxes. We play America’s newest game show “Undue Risk,” where insurance is the topic of the day. We’ll even see what happens when we give an audience member $100 to go on a (purely imaginary) spending spree!
