Where are you from?

ATX

How long has your team been performing?

Who are your inspirations, both in comedy & not?

Original inspirations included: horror movies, Father John Misty, Hot Rod, Alan Resnick, Bill Hader, 80s new wave, murder/true crime drama, Wild Wild Country, Key & Peele’s Continental Breakfast (see if you can spot which member has a tattoo of this!), the Chris Gethard Show, John Mulaney, Maria Bamford, Comedy Bang Bang, Mr. Show, Good Neighbor Stuff, Drag Race.... Since then we’ve all forgotten about Wild Wild Country and are now watching I Think You Should Leave!

What's the vibe of the show you're performing at ASF?

Texas megachurch.

What is the origin of your teams name?

We discovered many of us carried similar church baggage from our upbringings and wanted to explore that through comedy.

What music are you currently listening to?

Relient K, Creed and Switchfoot, of course!

Build a perfect breakfast taco. We will be judging you.

Fish on hot cross buns. Don’t like it? Well only God can judge! 🙏


Catch Prayer Circle with Horsemilk on May 22nd at Fallout Theater!
