This is possibly the best show yet by one of the best sketch comedy groups in the City. Very funny skits, and a very good band that backs them up.

I've seen and enjoyed KML before, but most of these skits weren't funny or even very unique. Which is a shame because the acting is great and the band is very good and well integrated into the show.

“Best Comedy Group of 2007” —SF Weekly


Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, critically acclaimed sketch comedy group Killing My Lobster presents its first-ever all-female sketch comedy show. Killing My Lobster for the Very First Time is a collection of scenes and shenanigans all about “first time” experiences—from first kisses to first alien abductions and more.

Directed by longtime KML member Shaye Troha, KML for the Very First Time features a cast of some of the Bay Area’s best young comedic actresses: Fontana Butterfield (Shotgun Players, KML’s world premiere Hunter Gatherers), Erin Carter (Exit Theater’s Chemical Imbalance and KML Saves the Day_), Melanie Case (_Hunter Gatherers and many KML shows), Emily Jordan (SF Shakespeare Festival’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream_), and Sarah Mitchell (_KML Faces the Music and many more) and Leslie Waggoner.

Killing My Lobster is a Bay Area non-profit theater and film production company proclaimed “Best Comedy Group” by the editors of SF Weekly. This past season, KML presented the world-premiere sketch comedies KML Faces the Music and KML Saves the Day. Last summer, their critically acclaimed world-premiere production of Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s Hunter Gatherers received an extended three-month run at San Francisco’s Thick House Theater and was proclaimed by the San Francisco Chronicle as “a major achievement for Killing My Lobster.” The play went on to win both the Will Glickman Award for the best new play of the Bay Area (2006) and the Steinberg Award for the best new play produced outside of New York City that year.

Hailed by the Chronicle as “the closest thing we have to Second City” and heralded as “an orgy of comic genius” by Comedy Central, KML has created original work for HBO, is a two-time winner of the Best of the Fringe Award at the SF Fringe Festival and was voted “Best Comedy Group” by the San Francisco Bay Guardian. The group also produces the annual Hi/Lo Film Festival ( and has created numerous award-winning short films taking home the Golden Spire Prize at the SF International Film Festival.
