Comedy Works Presents: Thick Skin

As a special presentation from Comedy Works, enjoy comedy the way it's intended. No holds barred, no punches pulled, and no f**ks given. Watch seasoned pros and future stars battle each other for supremacy. Good sets will be awarded, bad sets will be punished. Feelings will be hurt, fun will be had.

Comedy is at its best when it isn't scared to tell the truth. So let's stop pretending that the world is nice and fair, and help us celebrate each other by pointing out our differences and similarities that make us all amazing and utterly stupid.

Thick Skin may not be for everybody, but everyone should see it! 

Be sure to check out Thick Skin every week at Comedy Works!
