"I had TVunscripted at the Westside Comedy Festival and perform at Voodoo Comedy. They always put on a great show and the audience loves them! They bring a fun energy and dynamic set to the stage and Gabe and Ryder are just great folks! Highly recommend TVunscripted."

-Nick Armstrong, Artistic Director, Westside Comedy Theater Santa Monica CA

"We were so happy to have TVunscripted at our festival (Trill Comedy 2019.) Ryder and Gabe created a terrific show that was highly original, intensely physical, and all around hilarious. TVunscripted was as captivating as it was playful and turned out to be a major crowd favorite. We'd love to have them back at our fest again soon."

-Roger Anderson, Owner, Station Theater Houston TX
