TVunscripted's Sketch Duet (Sketch) & Red Door (Long Form Improv)

TVunscripted's Sketch Duet 
Peer into the lives and minds of Ryder Tam and Gabe Valdez in this two-man sketch comedy show as they draw on their experience as scientists, BIPOC comedians, and a shared obsession with physical humor and buddy cop drama. They are a Ledge Theatre house team.


Red Door will take you into their wheelhouse of accents, huge characters and crisp space work to show you that anything is possible behind the Red Door. Hitting the stage with high energy, power listening, and seamless editing Red Door is a great example of fast and furious team work.

Limited seating available: reservations via Sched registration are highly encouraged. Just add the event (click next to the event title) to your schedule and your reservation is set. If the event is full, you will be on the waitlist and will be encouraged to show up and if there is space, we will get you into the event.

Face coverings (masks) are recommended (regardless of vaccination status) per UCI policy.
