Get ready to laugh your way to the afterlife at Death by Bad Jokes: Stop, Stop, You’re Killing Me by jkjk, a hilarious performance that will leave you gasping for breath. 

ABOUT THE SHOW: It’s the mid-2030s, and we find our perfect family enjoying dinner on a perfectly perfect night when a terrible secret is revealed. An unsuspecting party clown is forced to confront their wife about her shady affairs before one more person has to die. Part comedy, part drama, part musical, part absurdist theatre. In a world on edge Death by Bad Jokes asks, are we seeking justice? Revenge? Or would we all rather just look the other way?
