Discover the Mad Stache In April!
March 16, 2012—“Mad Stash:  Discovery!" kicks off Battle Stache Studio’s 2012 season with their signature live comedy show, incorporating sketch comedy, local musicians, and short films stitched together in a seamless stream. Six shows will be performed from April 19th to April 28th at the Firehouse Art Collective on the Berkeley/Oakland border.
Each Mad Stash is a thematically linked evening of bawdy, hysterical, and insightful sketches delivered at a frenetic pace. April’s theme is Discovery, and show writers Josh Han, Colin Johnson, Katie May, Brian Quakenbush, Jess Thomas, and Ignacio Zulueta tackle the frontiers of innovation both onscreen and onstage with titles like “Great Moments In Discovery”, “Douchebags Anonymous”, and that beloved 80’s sitcom-that-never-was, “Those Wacky Brain Sucker Girls”.

The Stash goes up in a converted police vehicle dock located at 3192 Adeline across the street from Ashby BART. It’s the Firehouse Art Collective, converted by Tom Franco and Julia Lazar to provide a multidisciplinary space for artists, audiences, and their community.

Parking is available in the BART parking lot and on-street in the neighborhood. Tickets are $13-15 at the door, cash and credit accepted. Ask about our bike and t-shirt discount!

“bawdy, hysterically funny and insightful… It follows the Saturday Night Live model with the major difference being that MAD STASH is entertaining and you don’t want to change the channel.”

John McMullen of Oakland Theater Examiner

“A wild ride, tilting in the direction of the absurd. Don’t expect to step out for coffee.”

Jan Probst of SF Theatre Examiner

“shakes up the sketch-comedy format. […] Unlike other sketch shows, Stash adopts a seamless, stream-of-consciousness format that gives audience and performer scarcely a moment to breathe“

--Ellen Cushing of The East Bay Express – “The Mad Genius of Mad Stash
