Sketch comedy you watch while you eat your cereal

Don’t bother changing out of your pajamas! Killing My Lobster brings you sketch comedy that evokes all the Saturday morning cartoons we watched in our childhood. Who cares if they cut corners on animation costs, or had painfully on-the-nose “positive messaging,” or advertised rickety toys? We loved them! Feel like a kid again, and Toon Out with KML.


Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Is the space ADA accessible?

Yes! If you have mobility or wheelchair needs in order to attend this production, please email after you purchase your tickets and we will accommodate you.

  • What are your COVID policies?

Killing My Lobster asks their audience members to remain masked when not enjoying a beverage. We understand many venues no longer require masks, but as a small nonprofit, we cannot afford for our performers to become ill.

  • How do I get to 447 Minna?

447 Minna is named after its address, so you can find it at…447 Minna. It is accessible via BART, with the closest stop being Powell Street. Walk straight down 5th and you’re there! If you care to drive, there is a large parking structure at 5th and Mission.

  • Do they serve concessions at 447 Minna?

No, but the Tempest, the Chieftain, and the San Francisco Mint are just a few of the great watering holes in easy walking distance.
