Since 2001, NYC-based sketch comedy group spurn has been purveying a disturbing and hilarious blend of pathos and whimsy. Hailed as 'relentlessly funny' (The Village Voice), spurn shares the Kids in the Hall's 'hard-edged, envelope pushing, vaguely absurdist sensibility' (NY Theatre Experience) and TimeOut NY magazine can say only this: 'Disgusting, horrifying, amusing.' spurn: if you're happy, you're not paying attention. www.spurn-nyc.com

Great sketch comedy from an NYC Underground Favorite
Spurn is funny as hell, really frickin' dark, and somewhere between occasionally and frequently disturbing. I've been seeing these guys for years and, while they don't perform as frequently as other groups, their stuff is much more polished. You should take a look at anything they put up here. SPURN! (One of their advertisements for a past show was "Babies Kill Dreams." That $#%& still cracks me up.)
Saw their live show at the NY Fringe Festival last year. Spurn rocks! Some VERY funny, twisted, disturbing stuff. Great cast, too! These guys are bananas! I can't wait to see more of their stuff up here.
These videos are histerical. I especially love "Be My Girl, Sally". It's all very crazy and weird, which makes it great. I hope you guys put out more soon. thanks for the entertainment.
