Bill & Ted's Spooky Halloween Spooftacular
Saturday, October 22 ,10:00pm
UCB Franklin
5919 Franklin Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028

It's a parody of Universal Studios' cheesy old Bill & Ted stage show that was canceled in 2013 after a Vice reporter exposed it for being offensive (and also unfunny). We wrote a full-length fake 2016 version of the theme park show and are putting it on featuring UCB's best writers and actors.

Your favorite terrible pop culture spoof show is back, and it's spoofier than ever. For years, Universal Studios Hollywood had an annual Halloween stage show starring Bill and Ted, lampooning the biggest pop culture happenings of the previous year. Recently, the show was canceled forever for being dumb and bad. That's why we decided to keep the tradition alive by presenting what we think Universal Studios' 2016 Bill and Ted show probably would have been. Because Los Angeles deserves an extremely unfunny, genuinely upsetting comedy show featuring empty pop culture references and two characters from a movie that has not held up well. No one is safe. Not even... Grimsby?!
