Pick of the Day: Picture This! 9 to 5 Anniversary 4/17
One of the best shows that we went to in or out of the pandemic was the live animation/live comedy hybrid experience lovingly known as Picture This! For the uninitiated (or those who have spent so much time in quarantine that they’ve forgotten the before times), some of the best animators around would live-animate based on stand-up comedy that was being performed and their animations would be projected on a screen behind the comedian. The results were, with no irony at all, magical (and, of course, hysterical).
There have been a number of virtual versions of the show throughout lockdown, but Picture This! has been on a bit of a break. That all ends next month when they simultaneously celebrate a 9 year anniversary in LA and a 5 five year anniversary in NYC.
To mark the occasion, they have a stellar line-up of comedians and artists, which include:
Baron Vaughn (Superstore)
Joel Kim Booster (Search Party)
Mike Hollingsworth (BoJack Horseman)
Mike L. Mayfield (Midnight Gospel)
Brandie Posey (Lady to Lady)
Kati Prescott (Showtime)
Bryan Brinkman (SNL)
Dan Pinto (Nickelodeon)
