Spoof Night! with Family Dinner Comedy Troupe and THE KARATE KID

Our live movie-ridiculing continues with a lesson in Karate, the ancient art of 80's filmmaking. In this one the guys from Family Dinner Comedy Troupe learn that Karate comes from the heart of New Jersey, and when practiced correctly, can land you some serious California Beach Babes. They will also try their hardest to avoid any of the tired, old jokes about "waxing on and waxing off", but we can't make promises with a live show.

This Interactive Movie Experience pokes fun with live commentary, digital skits, and improv.
