I, Ian Oswald, the Only Royal King of the iO Theater Network, hereupon issue a decree!
In mine kingly wisdom, I HOLD IN CONTEMPT, the three naifs responsible for Super Talent Show, a.k.a. The iO Theater's most depraved and disgusting sketch show in history! I hate this sketch show! And I'm the king!

When Conor Sullivan, a founding member of Oh Theodora, relocated to Los Angeles last year, the group continued doing shows as a trio for several months, before announcing plans to dissolve this Spring.

I've gone on record (several times) as being a huge John Eisenrich fan, and this latest video is a perfect encapsulation of why I think he's so great. Similar in style to clips like the now-legendary "Hat" and the wonderful "Dog Town," "Brunch" features Christina Boucher and was shot by Brandon Hauer. Watch it below!Read More
